Blasius Chevrolet 2 Wolcott Scrappers 1
Rain once again was the lead story of the day, but nothing was going to get in the way of Gary day. In front of a large crowd to see Gary Novakowski who was in search of his 100th regular season win . Making his first start of the year the big guy had something to prove. Over a dominate 5 innings the righty would allow just 2 hits while striking out 4 Scrappers. Not to be out done Tyler Smith the big Wolcott righty would pitch 7 innings only 3 hits to give Wolcott a chance to ruin Gary day and end Blasius 4 game win streak. The day would get off to a good start for the home team, Connor Goggins would hit a one out single advance to second on a walk to Mike Vaccarelli. After a double steal Eric Rovinetti would drive in Goggins on a ground out to second. The game would remain that way as both Novakowski, and Smith would match zeros over the next 6 innings. Finally in the 7th Wolcott would get something going against Blasius closer Kellen Croce. Steve Urbanski would start the Wolcott rally with an excuse me piece off of Croce that would turn into a 2 bse error. After sacrifice by Wolcott moved Urbanski, Jesus Garcia was able to dunk one into right to tie the game. Croce would keep it right there striking out the next to Scrappers he faced but the damaged was done the game as tied and Novakowski would have to wait to join the 100 win club. Keeping pace with Tri-Town was still on the mind of the boys from Blasius. In order to get that done they would have to find away to get something going in the 7th. as it has seemed to be the case this year Rovinetti and Paul Novakowski would be involved. Rovinetti would draw a wone out walk, and advance to third on Novakowski’s one out single. Setting the stage for big Jon Conlon to be the home town hero. He would do that dropping the hammer and driving a pitch to center field, and sending Blasius on to their 4th straight win. As always we would like to take this time to thank our sponsor Blasius Chevrolet for making this season possible. The home stand continues Thursday night at 5:45pm against the Naugy Gray Hounds.
