After dropping the opening game in their 2017 summer season, the Colchester Cannons stormed back with three-straight wins, including a 6-4 decision over Rutland last Sunday. They currently sit with a 3-1 record.

Thomas Vesosky has sparked the Cannons’ offense through the first four games with a .714 batting average over 14 at-bats, including 10 hits, seven runs, five RBIs and one homer.

Saul Minaya and Noel Minaya are following closely behind with .556 and .550 batting averages, respectively.

They’ve combined for eight hits, five runs and four RBIs through 16 atbats.

The Cannons hosted Addison on Tuesday afternoon in a game that concluded after The Sun went to print.

They then have six games over the next five days, including a double-header Saturday at Cranston Stadium in Cranston, R. I.
