Brighton Braves 5, Stoneham Sabers 3
|Braves bounce back with a big win over Stoneham. Kennedy-Smith, making an emergency start on short rest, comes up huge limiting the Sabers to 3 hits in 5.2 innings.
Sabers jump out in front in the 1st as Pizarro gets hit by a pitch, steals second and Adams knocks him in. Braves answer in the bottom half with 4 runs on 6 hits, including RBIs from Tracy, McLaughlin and Uberti (2).
Sabers score again in the 2nd after a Quezada single, stolen base and a Curtain RBI double.
Braves add one in the 4 when Lee singles in McLaughlin.
In the 6th, Kennedy-Smith gets 2 quick outs but walks the next 2. Smith then comes in for the 4-out save. Colucci grounds one in the hole to right to score Flanagan from 2nd.
Smith shuts the door in the 7th with a grounder and 2 strikeouts.
Web gem of the night goes to Stoneham's Ryan Flanagan who laid out in shallow short, of the softball diamond, to rob Billy Uberti of extra bases.
