The Game Changed When…
Game 1: Bridgeport led 2-0, and Tony Abreu came to the plate with 2 outs in the top of the 2nd inning. Wellington Dotel was on second and Jose Cuevas was on first. Abreu would reach base on an error, and Dotel would come home to score, charging an unearned run to Nate Roe. That run would give Bridgeport a 3-0 lead at the time, and prove to be the game winning play.
Game 2: The Bees came to bat in the bottom of the 2nd inning down 1-0 at the time. They would rally for 2 runs in the frame, which started with Jamar Walton scoring on an errant pickoff attempt by Matt Quintana, and then Yusuke Kajimoto bringing home Jordan Hinshaw with an RBI single immediately after. New Britain secured the 2-1 lead at the time, and that’s all they would need to get the win.
