Bristol Blues Baseball: The Blues continued their steady climb to .500 on the season after earning their third-straight win with a 7-4 victory at the Seacoast Mavericks (5-8). The Mavericks held a one-run advantage, 2-1, until the Blues captured the lead for good in the fourth inning. Mitch Guilmette hit a solo home run, and Brandon Grover drew a walk with the bases loaded to bring in a run. Kyle Pileski drove in two more runs with a base hit in the fifth. The Mavericks cut the deficit to one with a pair of runs in the sixth, but Mitch Williams (2-for-3) added a couple more runs for insurance with an RBI single in the seventh. Bristol finished with eight hits and committed two errors. Ross Weiner (2-0) started on the mound and picked up the win after going five innings with six strikeouts, allowing five hits, four earned runs, and three walks. Ian Halpin relieved Weiner to go three innings with three strikeouts, and Tommy Curtin closed with a pair of strikeouts to get his third save of the season. The Blues will wrap up the week when they return home to host the Brockton Rox (9-2) tomorrow. Game time is 6 p.m. The Rox are currently in first place of the East Division. Bristol is currently 6-8 overall.
