Rockland 5, Ottawa 3 – Box Score
The Rockland Boulders scored three runs in the top of the ninth inning to overcome a 3-2 deficit and beat Ottawa by the score of 5-3.
After a scoreless inning of play, Ottawa took a 2-0 lead in the second as CF Steve Brown scored on a single by 3B Jordan Caillouet and RF Brian Portelli came home on a sacrifice fly from SS Malik Collymore. The score would remain the same until the top of the sixth when Rockland tied the score up at 2-2 thanks to a double by 1B Collin Ferguson and a single by RF Jordan Hinshaw. The deadlock would not last for long as C Andy Mocahbee hit a solo home run in the bottom of the inning to give the Champions back the lead at 3-2. Ottawa took that advantage into the ninth but could not finish the game off as Rockland plated three runs via a walk and a two-run single from LF Mitch Piatnik to take the lead for good at 5-3.
Ferguson and C Blake Grant-Parks each had 2-for-4 nights at the plate with a run scored.
Boulders reliever Nick Kennedy (pictured) tossed two scoreless innings and earned the win. Kennedy gave up a hit and a walk in the seven batters that he faced.
