Baseball: Johnson fires Law past Foran

Kevin Johnson pitched a two-hit complete-game shutout to lead the Jonathan Law baseball team to a 5-0 victory over Foran High on Wednesday afternoon at the newly-dedicated Ken Walker Field.

Johnson, a hard-throwing junior, struck out eight batters to post the victory in his first start of the season in a Southern Connecticut Conference Hammonasset Division showdown.

Jake Rouse provided the offense for the Lawmen (3-2, 1-0), going 3-for-4 with three runs batted in, including a two-run double in the fourth inning that gave Law a 3-0 edge.

James Palmer drove in a pair of runs for Law with a sixth-inning single, while Tim Maher added two hits, one run scored and a stolen base.

Chris Yee and Anthony Alicki had the hits for Foran, which dropped to 4-1.

Casey McCone threw a complete game for the Lions, allowing 10 hits and striking out four.

Prior to the game, a ceremony was held to dedicate Foran's field to former head coach Ken Walker, who passed away last June.
