Game 2 is another 'must win'; since the winner of this game will for sure, be in the thick of the playoff race. We are facing a great lefty pitcher (Varsity at UConn) who knows us well. He came in relief to shut us down 2 years ago in a 15 inning loss to these same Red Sox.
Ice, Papi, and Ski had 4 hits between them, and 3 of them prodeced all of the Nor'easter scoring output with single tallies in the 2nd and 5th. These were basic small-ball runs that win important games. Not doing this, loses big ballgames.
Ricky Bobby pitched a masterpiece 4-hitter, with no real threats. All the Nor'easters took turns touching him after the game. Tomorrow, we play the Rockies, another youngish good Northeast team. We sent Pickle to the mound for this tough assignment.
