NAPPO THROWS 6 2/3 STRONG INNINGS IN VICTORY OVER YORK
In 140 Characters or Less: Rosa, Walton hit back to back homers, Nappo gets the win behind 6.2 strong innings in 3-1 victory over the Revolution #ItsBetterWithTheBees
The Game Changed When… The Bees came to bat in the bottom of the 6th inning down 1-0 at the time. With 1 out, Jovan Rosa would hit a solo home run to tie the game, and then Jamar Walton would follow with a solo shot of his own to give New Britain the 2-1 lead. The 2 runs in that frame would be essential in securing the 3-1 victory.
