The Nashua Silver Knights returned home to Holman Stadium for a Sunday night game against
the Pittsfield Suns. Danny Gracia started on the mound for the Knights, striking out five batters
over six innings.
The Suns started off in the first inning with two hits and one run. The Knights were able to cut
the lead in half with a solo home run from Benjamin Cowles in the third inning. In the fourth,
Nashua tied it up with a sacrifice fly to right field from Dylan Jones to score Noah Lucier.
Pittsfield’s Mark Coley hit a home run in the top of the sixth to give the Suns the lead again.
After pitching an inning, Derek Goldrick entered in the top of the eighth to replace Spencer
Bergeron on the mound. After a wild pitch and a walk, the Suns were able to score Caeden
Trenkle on a sacrifice fly to center field from Andrew Fernandez.
The Knights were able to tie it back up in the bottom of the eighth. Lucier got on base with a
single, and a double from Mike La Rocca brought him home. A big triple from Suns’ Dan Baruch
put him in scoring position to take back the lead, and he scored on a single from Bryce Osmond.
Nashua’s Jared Dupere hit what looked like a double deep to right field, but as a result of some
eager base running, he was putout at third. Unfortunately, a strike out ended the Silver Knights
seven-game win streak with a final score of 4-3 Pittsfield.
The Knights are now 11-9 for the season, only 1.5 games behind first place. Nashua will be back
at Holman Stadium on Monday to take on the Bristol Blues at 7:05 p.m.
