NAUGATUCK — The Giants won the Peter J. Foley Little League championship June 15 with a 5-0 win over the Athletics.

JD Stone pitched a complete game for the Giants, allowing three hits with two walks and four strike outs. Zack Setzer led the offense for the Giants with a double, single and four RBI. Mason Bedard added a double and JT Thompson, Pete Mullin and Justis Rivera had singles.

The Athletics threatened in the fourth inning with runners on first and second and two outs. The Giant’s Michael Clemente came up with the defensive play of the game on a hit from Matt Borsey, turning what looked like a hit up the middle into the final out of the inning. Matt Steckert caught a fly ball in right field off the bat of Devin Giove, and Thompson snagged line drive to center off the bat of Joey Grailich.

Jimmy Ayash had two singles and Jake Murphy added a single for the Athletics.
