Bristol Blues Baseball: Following the all-star break and three consecutive days away from the field as a team, the Blues picked up from where they left off from to earn their second-straight win with a 6-1 victory at the Nashua Silver Knights (19-21). A pair of base hits by Chris Davis (2-for-5) and Jeff Shanfeldt (2-for-4) and a RBI double by Jayson Gonzalez gave the Blues a 5-1 advantage after the fifth inning. Mitch Guilmette (3-for-5) capped off the victory with a RBI single in the sixth. The Blues finished with 13 hits. Jake Frasca went 2-for-5 at the plate. Michael Genaro (2-0) started on the mound and picked up the win after going eight innings with six strikeouts, allowing six hits, one earned run, and a walk. John Natoli (3-0) closed.
