Knights Start Final Stretch with a W


(Lynn, MA): Nashua put together one of their best all-around games of the season on Wednesday night, as they took down the North Shore Navigators 5-1 at Fraser Field. The Knights were paced by their stellar pitching, to be noted later. 

In the second, Luke Beckstein (Kansas State) would be hit by a pitch with one out, later coming around to score on a single from Ben Rounds (Harvard). A trio of walks would help load the bases after Troy Schreffler Jr. scored on a walk by Nick Shumski (Merrimack). The Knights would get their final run when Jared Dupere (Northeastern) made his return to the lineup and delivered a SAC fly to score Lucas Stalman (Boston College).

Nashua would tag on two more 7th inning to seal the game from the Navs. Shumski singled and would score on a hit by Dominic Keegan (Vanderbilt). Their final run came when Dupere scored after John Mead (Franklin Pierce) grounded into a 4-6-3DP, but home came Dupere. 

Griffin Young (Wheaton) was superb in his latest start, going 6.0IP, giving up 1R, 4H, 1BB and 7. North Shore’s Todd Tringale (Northern Essex CC) took the loss (0-2), going 2.0IP, getting hit with 3R, on 2H, while walking 4 and collecting 3K. Nick Guarino (Clark) extended his empty-ERA to 10.1 innings for the Knights this summer, while Chris Chaney (Maryland) picked up his third save on Wednesday, delivering a 1-2-3 ninth after the first two runners had reached against Steven Miller (Penn State).

Nashua improves to 15-11, now 2 games behind Worcester for the number seed. They are two games ahead of Brockton for second place. The Knights will travel to North Shore again on Thursday at 6PM before The Silver Knights will return to Holman Stadium for a 3-game homestand on Friday.
