Pregame: Navs @ Sanford

The Game

The North Shore Navigators, set to visit the Sanford Mainers tonight, had a three-game winning streak snapped on Sunday in an 11-2 loss to the Newport Gulls. Still, they have won five of seven and are now deadlocked in a three-way tie for first place with both Sanford and Newport, who is not in action tonight. Sanford, which defeated North Shore 2-1 on a walk-off error June 15, lost 9-2 last night to Newport at Cardines Field.

The Pitchers
NS – LHP Michael Johnson (1-0, 0.90)
SAN – RHP Nate Jones (1-0, 1.69)
Lefty Michael Johnson makes his third start for the Navs tonight in Maine. Johnson, the NECBL Pitcher of the Week in Week 1 of the season, has been the Navs best starter thus far, compiling a 1-0 record with a miniscule 0.90 ERA. Meanwhile Jones, who posted a 5.67 ERA in 23 appearances at Wake Forest as a freshman, allowed just one run on one hit over 5.1 innings June 14 at Keene in his only start to date on the season.
