COLEMAN FANS 5 IN 4 INNINGS, WALTON GETS 2 HITS IN LOSS
In 140 Characters or Less: Jake McGuiggan notches 100th career hit with RBI single, but Bees drop game 2 of 3 to Bridgeport by a 4-1 score #NewBritainVsEverybody
The Game Changed When… Jonathan Galvez stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the 4th inning with Jose Cuevas on third base and 1 out. At the time, the game was tied at 1, and the stalemate would be broken when Galvez would bring Cuevas home with a sacrifice fly to center field. It gave Bridgeport the 2-1 lead, and that lead would hold until the final out was recorded.
