GILBLAIR PICKS UP 11TH SAVE AS BEES EDGE REVOLUTION
In 140 Characters or Less: Lee fans 6 through 6 innings of work, Walton hits 11th homer of the year as Bees hold on for 4-3 victory over York #NewBritainVsEverybody
The Game Changed When… New Britain was leading 3-0 entering the top of the 6th inning, and Jamar Walton stepped up to the plate to lead off the frame. He would send a 2-2 pitch over the wall to add what would go down as the game winning insurance run, extending the Bees’ lead to 4-0 at the time. York would battle back, but the Bees held them off just enough to secure the win.
