Pregame: Westerners @ Navigators

The Game

The Navigators will host the Danbury Westerners tonight in a rematch of last year’s NECBL Championship Series. Danbury defeated North Shore 9-5 on June 28 in Connecticut, so the Navs will look to even the season-series tonight. The Westerners (17-9) currently own the best record in the NECBL and have now won four straight after a 7-2 win on the road at North Adams last night. Meanwhile North Shore has won two in a row coming off of a four-game losing streak.

Starting Pitchers
NS – LHP Crayton Bare (1-1, 3.68)
DAN – RHP Mike Augliera (1-1, 2.08)
Lefthander Crayton Bare (Baylor) is coming off his best performance of the season his last time out, allowing just one hit while shutting out Vermont over five innings of work on July 12. He left with a 1-0 lead but the Navs ultimately dropped the ballgame 4-2. He is 1-1 with a 3.68 ERA on the season and was an NECBL All-Star for the Navs last summer. Righty Mike Augliera, a junior out of Bunghamton, goes tonight for Danbury. He has made two starts on the season, going 1-1 with a 2.08 ERA. He was hit with the loss his last time out on July 10 despite allowing just two earned runs over six innings of work.
