PLYMOUTH, Mass. – Oh to be young. Trying to make up for games lost to the weather, the Muskrats played a day-night double header yesterday — in different cities – and came away empty handed. Laconia gave up 4 runs in the bottom on the eighth to drop a 5-4 decision in New Bedford in the afternoon, then traveled up the coast and suffered a heartbreaking 9th inning loss, 3-2, in Plymouth.
The two losses dropped Laconia to 21-19 in the Eastern Division of the NECBL, 3-1/5 games behind Newport and in a tie for fourth with Mystic.
New Bedford will return the favor today, traveling up to Robbie Mills Field for a 2 p.m. matinee and then heading over to Sanford, Maine for a night game. Laconia plays just once on Tuesday, then will host Keene on Wednesday. The regular season wraps up for the Muskrats with a road game at Ocean State on Thursday and a home game with Sanford on Friday.
Laconia took a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the eighth yesterday at New Bedford but 4 singles and 4 wild pitches opened the flood gates for the Bay Sox. Starter Evan Phillips (North Carolina-Willmington) gave up 3 runs over 7 innings and took the loss. Adrian Longoria (Texas A&M-Corpus Christi) relieved him in the eighth but surrendered 3 hits and the last of the wild pitches.
The Muskrats outhit their hosts 10-6. Right fielder Ryan McBrook – the league's fourth leading hitter at .319 — went just 1 for 5 but drove in 2 runs in the ninth with a double. Representing the tying run, he was stranded when Jake Peevyhouse (Arizona State) flied out to end the game.
Second baseman Joe Torres (Iona) and third baseman Joey Bielek (Arizona State) both had two hits for Laconia.
Laconia managed just 7 hits in the nightcap and no player had more than 1.
The game was knotted at 2 going into the bottom of the ninth though and Ryan Agnitsch (Jefferson) was relived after giving up a one-out double. Ryan Tezak (West Virginia) then gave up the single that platted the winning run. Agnitsch got the loss.
