Entering a crucial late-season stretch of games against tough teams, it was inevitable that the Ridgefield High baseball team's pitching depth would be tested. On Thursday afternoon, the Tigers once again passed with flying colors.
Senior Jake Artzt was sharp, giving up one run over five and two-thirds innings to lead Ridgefield to a 6-2 victory over FCIAC-leading Darien. How good has Artzt been this season? Despite the stellar outing, Ridgefield’s number-two starter actually saw his ERA rise from 0.38 to 0.55.
