Fourth of July had no shortage of fireworks this year thanks to the offenses of Nashua and Worcester.
The big story heading in to the game is obviously Sean Babineau getting the start. Who's last time out, no-hit the Silver Knights with a little help from his friends out in the bullpen. However, it was not the same story this time around. In the second inning Jared Dupere got to Babineau for the first hit of the ballgame. A solo homerun to the opposite field, his 6th of the season. The very next batter, Ben Cowles, followed in suit as he went back to back with Dupere with a solo homerun of his own.
The Knights would strike for 7 more runs but the big story was the long ball. Joe Bramanti also hit a solo homer in the middle innings, as well as a pinch hit 3-run homerun off the bat of Billy Butler.
Though the bats were hot, the Knights were not able to keep the Bravehearts offense quiet enough to steal the win. The Bravehearts put up 11 runs on 12 hits, but Nashua's 4 errors proved to be the big difference, as only 5 of the 11 runs given up were earned.
The Silver Knights drop under .500 again but will have the opportunity to redeem themselves in Pittsfield on July 5th.
