The Game Changed When…
Game 1: New Britain had a 2-1 lead going into the top of the 5th inning, and they proceeded to send 11 hitters to the plate. 5 of them would come in to score, extending the Bees lead to 7-1. The offensive surge was led by a sacrifice fly by James Skelton, a 2 run double by Jovan Rosa, and RBI knocks from Craig Maddox and Conor Bierfeldt. Each run driven in would prove to be vital as York would rally late, but come up just shy to give New Britain the 7-6 win.
Game 2: The Bees took an early 4-2 lead into the bottom of the 5th inning, and York would counter it with 3 runs of their own in that frame to take a 5-4 lead. Angel Franco would come to bat with a runner on base and hit a 2 run shot to give York a 5-4 lead. After adding on an insurance run with another home run in the 6th, the Revolution would secure the victory with a 6-4 final score.
