Pregame: Bay Sox @ Navigators

The Game
The Navs are now in a tie for first-place in the Eastern Division with the New Bedford Bay Sox, who will be at Fraser Field tonight. As recently as Friday, the Navigators narrowly trailed two teams in the standings and sat in third place, but their magical 6-5 walk-off win on Friday night enabled them to overtake the Newport Gulls and also even things up with the Sanford Mainers. To boot, both Newport and Sanford lost Saturday night while the Navs extended their winning streak to three, meaning both teams are now in fact a game back of North Shore.

Starting Pitchers
NS – RHP Junior Mendez (0-0, 0.00)
NB – RHP Kyle Putkonen (0-0, 0.00)
Right-hander Junior Mendez (Southern New Hampshire University) will get his first start of the season tonight for the Navigators. The freshman has not yet been scored upon in seven appearances out of the bullpen spanning nine innings. Mendez went 2-2 with a 3.69 ERA in 11 games for the Penmen this spring. Kyle Putkonen goes tonight for the Bay Sox in what will be his third start of the season. The Samford junior went 7-2 with a 3.25 ERA in 13 starts this season.
