Bisaillon outduels Rembish in Holy Cross baseball win at St. Paul

Crusaders, Falcons meet again Tuesday in Waterbury

The Holy Cross and St. Paul baseball teams met for the first time this season on Monday afternoon in Bristol, and it was a great pitchers’ duel.

Aiden Bisaillon did his part to make sure the game went to the Crusaders, 2-0, over Logan Rembish and the Falcons. Bisaillon fired a complete game one-hitter and struck out 10 without a walk. The left-hander never allowed a baserunner past second base.

It was a tough loss for Rembish, who struck out 10 and gave up just four hits and two runs – one earned – in his own complete game. Unfortunately for the right-hander, the Falcons couldn’t get their offense going.

Holy Cross’ first run was scored by Eli Wall in the top of the first inning on an infield error. Wall singled to lead off the game, then stole second base to get into scoring position. St. Paul’s Seth Meuer doubled for his team’s lone hit in the bottom of the second inning.

In the top of the sixth, Gavin Perrone walked with one out. Ryan Makowski’s single moved Perrone over, then Carsten Donovan’s single brought him home for a 2-0 lead. The two-run cushion was more than enough for Bisaillon.

Holy Cross improved to 9-3 overall (9-2 NVL, 1-2 NVL Copper Division) while St. Paul fell to 8-5 overall (7-5 NVL, 1-4 Copper). The division foes are scheduled to meet again Tuesday at 4:45 p.m. at Alumni Field in Waterbury.
