After a tough loss in the first of 2 games against Milford at Old Tavern ballpark, Amity came back for game 2 with big bats, big plays and a big victory, 17 to 5. Winning pitcher Alex Perry completed the game backed by steady catching from Brian Ficaro and solid defense led by Dane DeYoung in the outfield and Jason Talnose at 2nd base.
