Blues top Wachusett Dirt Dawks

blues copyThe Blues moved to 10-7 on the season with a big 9-4 victory over the Wachusett Dirt Dawgs. John Mormile (University of Hartford) earned the win, going six innings, allowing three runs on four hits, striking out three and walking four. The Blues broke out of their offensive slump in a big way, putting up eight runs in the first three innings, taking a commanding 8-0 lead. Frankie Gregoire (Marist) had another huge day at the plate, driving in three runs on two doubles. Fighting through a nasty illness, Zach Scott (Saint Leo) went 2-4 with two runs scored and an RBI. Team batting leader Austin Chauvin (St. Mary’s CA) was mashing at the plate once again with a 2-5 day at the plate, bringing his average to .423. Jared Gallagher (Cental CT State University) made his Blues debut, providing two big hitless innings in relief. The Blues return to Muzzy tomorrow night for a 7:00 game against their western division rivals, the first-place Worcester Bravehearts. The attendance at Muzzy Field tonight was 1,011.
