The Day Is Upon Us

Shoot more, shoot more often

Today, New Britain moved into a tie for 5th place in the six team Eastern League Northern Division:

New Brtn 46-54 .460 6.0 GB
Bingham 43-51 .457 6.0 GB

While the Binghamton Mets were blowing a 5-1 lead in Bowie, losing to the Baysox 6-5 in 11 innings, the Rock Cats were prevailing in Norwich, 9-8. It was a typical Jeckle and Hyde performance for the Rock Cats: Norwich broke out quickly, leading 4-0 after 2, but then the Rock Cats stormed back against the Navigators' top starter, Merkin Valdez, and took a 9-4 lead before Norwich scored 4 more runs in the bottom of the 8th to make it close. Alex Romero had 2 doubles and 2 RBI, and a 90-year-old lady in the row in front of us almost got smoked by a line drive foul ball, which always makes me think of Walt Frazier for some reason.
