postGame: Navigators @ Bay Sox

Navs_Official_LogoThe North Shore Navigators (10-6) snapped a three-game losing streak, defeating the New Bedford Bay Sox (5-10) by the score of 6 to 3.

…For the first time this season, the North Shore Navigators won a game in which they trailed entering the seventh.  A run in the sixth and a two-run seventh helped the Navs overcome a 3-1 deficit as they defeated the New Bedford Bay Sox 6-3.  John Hill ripped a two-run single down the right-field line against Will Jolin (0-2) to score Tre Dennis and Mike LeBel and give the Navs a 4-3 lead in the seventh inning.  The Navs would tack on two insurance runs in the ninth inning in support of Mike Gallo (2-1), who hurled eight innings, striking out eight while only allowing two earned runs.  The turning point of the game came in the bottom of the fifth, when New Bedford put runners at second and third with nobody out in a 3-1 game.  Gallo got Alan Fredriksson to ground out to third base before Kevin David, who had doubled in two runs in his last at-bat, fouled out to Ben Waldrip at first base.  With the runners still at second and third, Gallo got Daniel Pigott, the clean-up hitter, to ground back to the mound and retire the side with the Bay Sox lead still at two.  Matt Marquis added a pinch-hit RBI single to cut the deficit to 3-2 in the sixth inning, before the Navs squandered an opportunity with second and third and one out in the inning.   Marquis also doubled in a run in the ninth inning, and finished the night 2-3 with two RBI.  Tre Dennis was 3-4 with two runs, a walk, and two stolen bases.  Ben Waldrip singled home Dennis in the ninth with one of Waldrip’s two hits of the night.  Chris Kowalski pitched a perfect ninth inning to nail down his third save of the year…
