MIKE LEE PITCHES 6 STRONG INNINGS IN 8-6 LOSS
In 140 Characters or Less: Rosa and Bierfeldt bring 4 runs home with the long ball, but the Bees’ late rally falls short against Bluefish, 8-6. #NewBritainVsEverybody
The Game Changed When… Bridgeport had a 4-2 lead going into the bottom of the 8th inning, and they would pick up 4 insurance runs which would prove to be vital in holding their lead. RBI singles by Ozney Guillen, D’Arby Myers, and Jonathan Galvez would bring home those 4 runs to give Bridgeport an 8-2 lead at the time. The Bluefish would hold off a late New Britain rally to get to the 8-6 final, making the runs scored in the 8th inning the game winning runs.
