Blasius Chevrolet 2 Bristol Greeners 1
A beautiful Sunday morning at the Hotch produced a pitcher’s duel that saw both teams struggle to generate offense. In the third inning Connor Goggin would reach on a fielder’s choice and steal second. A Mike Vaccavelli single would put the home team in the lead. In the bottom of the fourth Blasius would load the bases with no one out on a hit batter, a single, and a base on balls. However, Bristol starter Jerry Lapenta would get Fran Phalen to ground into a 6-4-3 double play. The double play would plate Paul Novakowski making it 2-0, but would keep Blasius from having what looked like a big inning. The game would remain that way until the until the ninth as Blasius was not able to get anything else against Lapenta. At the same time Bristol had even less luck against Blasius first three pitchers of the day Will Aldem (2-0), Fran Phalen, and Gary Novakowski who combined to give up three hit and strike out 10 over the first 8 innings. Bristol would finally get a rally going in the top of the ninth off Blasius closer Kellen Croce when Corey Plasky would lead off with a walk and a steal of second. One out later AJ Lorenzetti would single driving in Plasky making it a one run game. Croce would lock down the save by getting a ground ball to third and a weak looping pop up to second to end the game. Blasius moves to 4-1 on the season.
