HINSHAW EXTENDS HITTING STREAK TO 14 IN 12-3 LOSS
In 140 Characters or Less: Crouse plates 2 runs, but Bees drop series finale with Somerset 12-3. 4 game set with Lancaster begins tomorrow #NewBritainVsEverybody
The Game Changed When… After a scoreless first inning by Brian Dupra, Somerset would force him to run into some trouble, scoring 4 runs in the 2nd frame. Kyle Roller would lead off with a solo shot, followed by a 3 run home run from Christian Marrero, and then a sacrifice fly by Chris Grayson would cap it off. The sacrifice fly would prove to be the game winning play after the 12-3 final was reached.
