Bristol Blues Baseball:
The Blues remained winless on the season after suffering their fourth-straight loss, 4-3, at the Pittsfield Suns (5-0). The Suns currently lead the West Division in the FCBL. After two scoreless innings, the Suns posted three runs off a 6-3 putout and RBI double in the third. In the next inning, the Suns extended their lead to four with a run off an RBI single with two outs. Logan Green (2-for-5) cut the deficit to three after driving in Brandon Grover (2-for-4) on a double in the fifth. Grover continued to chip away at the Pittsfield’s lead with a solo home run in the seventh. Ben Maycock brought the Blues to within a run with a double that scored Chris Davis on an error made by the left fielder in the eighth. But Bristol’s rally ended soon after, as the Blue finished with seven hits. David Stiehl (0-1) started on the mound and was credited with the loss after going three innings with a pair of strikeouts, allowing five hits, three earned runs, and two walks. John Natoli and Anthony Morrone (0-1) saw some action on the mound as well. The Blues will look for their first win of the season when they wrap up the week with games against the Suns, divisional Wachusett Dirt Dawgs (0-3), Seacoast Mavericks (3-2), and divisional Worcester Bravehearts (3-2).
