Nashua Silver




Bravehearts Quiet Silver Knight Bats


(Leominster, MA): The Knights did not come up with their signature rally on Saturday night, falling to the Worcester Bravehearts by a score of 5-2 on the road, despite outhitting their opponnents (5-2). This concludes a four-game road trip for Nashua.

The Silver Knights were down 2-0 as they entered the top of the sixth inning. To that point, they only had two hits on the game: A Luke Beckstein (Kansas State) single in the first, and Jared Dupere (Northeastern) doubled directly after that. However, the Knights would tie it up after 6 last night, until Worcester regained the lead in the bottom of the sixth and got two in the eighth. 

In the sixth, Joseph Pesce (NYIT) hit a solo home-run with two outs to give Worcester the lead for good. In their eighth inning, Tyler Patane (Franklin Pierce) and Ben McNeill would walk, before both scoring on a Pesce double. Danny Torres (Saint Leo) and Ben Rice (Dartmouth) hit homers in the third and fourth innings. 

As the running theme this season, the Knights pitching is a topic of discussion, but after falling to third in overall ERA (4.29) they look to get back on track along with the offense. Nashua drops to 7-7 on the season, now two games out of first place. Angelo Baez (St. Thomas Aquinas) took the win for Worcester. He only gave up 5 hits in 6 innings with 2R, 1ER, 0BB and 11K. Shea Ryan (Assumption) took the loss, although he pitched well in 2.1 innings of work: 1ER, 1H, and 3K.

The boys of summer return to Holman Stadium on Sunday to face the North Shore Navigators at 3PM before going back to Leominster on Tuesday for another matchup with Worcester. As always, you can subscribe to the FCBL Network to catch all game action throughout the league at
