The Cougars would take the second game in the series against the Burlington Bees, 6-1. This means they have one the series, since they took the first game. Ian Krol pitched a great game and got lots of offensive support.
Krol pitched six innings giving up two hits and no runs. He gave up two walks and struck out four. The only chance the Bees had to score on him was in the fourth inning with runners on second and third with one out. Krol would get a pop out and a ground out to end the inning.
The offense came through tonight as they would score six runs on eleven hits. Anthony Aliotti led the way with three hits. Tyreace House, and Nino Leyja both had two hits.
The Cougars would take the lead in the second inning and never look back. With one out, Aliotti singled to left then stole second. One out later, Kent Walton singled up the middle to drive home Aliotti. The same combo would score the second run for the Cougars two innings later. This time Aliotti led off the inning with a double down the left field line. One out later, Walton hit a sacrifice fly to left to score Aliotti.
Three doubles in a row would score two runs in the sixth inning for the Cougars. With two outs, House doubled to right center. Myrio Richard then doubled to right to score House. Rashun Dixon would follow with a double to right center to score Richard. The Cougars scored one run in the seventh and one in the eighth also to end their scoring.
In the seventh inning with one out, Leonardo Gil pitch hit for Walton. Gil would be credited with a triple to left center. The left fielder misplayed the ball and should've been charged with an error on the play. Mike Gilmartin then put down a squeeze bunt to score Gil. In the eighth with one out, House singled to left center. One out later, Dixon walked and Aliotti then would single to left center to score House.
The Bees only run came off of releiver Jonathan Joseph in the seventh inning. With one out, Ryan Wood singled to center. Juan Graterol then doubled to right to score Wood.
