The North Shore Navigators mustered just three hits on Wednesday in a 3-0 shutout loss to the Mystic Schooners, marking their second loss in the state of Connecticut in as many days after falling to Danbury 9-5 on Tuesday. North Shore has now dropped five of their last six games to dip back under the .500 mark (7-8).
Mystic took an early lead on a first-inning RBI double after the Navs had left the bases loaded in the opening frame. The Schooners added two more in the sixth against reliever Nolan Corr after Navigators starting pitcher Michael Johnson had allowed just one run on four hits over five innings.
Shortstop Clinton Harwick (Point Loma Nazarene) had two hits for the Navigators while Dario Pizzano (Columbia) walked and had the other North Shore hit on the night. The Navigators return home on Thursday to Fraser Field against the North Adams Steeple Cats (6:15 p.m.). Freshman Dan Slania (Notre Dame), who has a 1.00 ERA on the season, gets the start for the Navigators.
