(Nashua, NH): The Silver Knights continued to get back on track Tuesday with a 13-9 victory
over the Navigators. Many of the Knights everyday starters had the night off, so it was a chance
for the rest of the position players to shine.
By the 3 rd inning, the Navs had built up an early 4-0 lead on starter Shaun Cormier (NEC). In the
first after retiring the first two batters, two runners reached base (the second via error) before
Tommy Seidl (Harvard) hit a 3-run home run. In the 3 rd , Logan Bravo (Harvard) hit a SAC fly to
score Ben Malgeri (Northeastern). Malgeri would go on to hit for the cycle, the first player in
the FCBL this season to complete the rare feat.
Nashua answered in their usual fashion by scoring 6 in the bottom of the 3 rd , Tom Crowley
(Merrimack) singled and Max Viera (Northeastern) was hit by a pitch before a Ben Rounds
(Harvard) RBI-single scored Crowley. The next batter was new Knights addition Kyle Bouchard
(Nichols), fresh off a big game Sunday in Brockton. He took a 3-1 pitch high over the right field
wall for his second home run of the season to tie the game. Later, a Nate Cormier (Nichols) 2-
RBI single would score John Mead (Franklin Pierce) and Lucas Stalman (Boston College). The
Navs would get the lead right back, scoring 3 in the 4 th to go up 7-6. Sal Frelick (Boston College)
would single home Dylan January (Franklin Pierce) and then Malgeri would hit a no-doubt home
run to left-center field.
The offense went quiet on both sides until the home half of the 8 th , when Nashua erupted for 7
more runs. Cormier would single and score the tying run on a Viera hit. Pinch-hitter Troy
Schreffler would score on a Rounds single. Viera and Rounds would come around on a pinch-hit
3-run home run by Jared Dupere (Northeastern). Dupere had been struggling as of late at the
plate, but waited nicely for the breaking ball that he took easily over the right-center field wall.
To finish the Nashua scoring, Ed Jarvis (Northeastern) would single home Mead, advance on the
throw, and then come around to score on an error by the catcher when he attempted to put
out Viera at second.
As this game was used as tune-up for the knights pitching staff before the weekend, many arms
were used, including starters such as Pat Harrington (Assumption) and Josh Roberge
(Wheaton), who picked up the decision by pitching the 8 th inning for Nashua. He had one
strikeout. Peter Sakellaris (Virginia) took the loss for North Shore, going 2IP, giving up 3ER on
3H, 1BB, and 1K.
The Knights improve to 22-16 and travel to Westfield for the regular-season finale on
Wednesday at 6PM. Game one of the FCBL Championship from Nashua is set for Thursday at
7PM with the Knights as the road team. Game 2 follows on Friday night, a 6PM start with
