WORCESTER, Mass. — The Pittsfield Colonials scored in six of seven innings in game two of a doubleheader to win 11-5 and split twinbill with the Worcester Tornadoes Friday.
In game two, the Colonials got off to a good start as an RBI single by Angel Molina and an RBI groundout by Billy Mottram gave Pittsfield a 2-0 lead. Worcester came back with four runs on only one hit in the bottom of the inning as four walks in the inning were wrapped around a three-run homer by Nick Salotti.
Pittsfield would chip away at the Worcester advantage, scoring single runs in the third, fourth and fifth to take a 5-4 lead of their own. The Colonials would add two more runs in the sixth on a double by Bomback to score Chris Torres and Jerod Edmondson for a 7-4 advantage.
Heading into the top of the seventh, the tarp was pulled on the field in anticipation of rain. After a 27-minute delay, the two teams resumed play and the Colonials came out with a vengeance, scoring four runs on six hits to take an 11-4 lead.
The win went to T. J. Wink (2-0) who pitched 3.2 scoreless innings of relief. Mike Zenko went the final 2.1 innings to earn his first save of the year. Matt McDonald (0-1) took the loss.
Pittsfield trailed 5-2 heading into the bottom of the seventh of game one when Matt Nandin and Danny Bomback and Angel Molina walked to load the bases. Two batters later, Johnny Welch clocked a grand slam to left-center to put the Colonials up 6-5. A win was not in the cards, however, as the Tornadoes got a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning to win 7-6.
Worcester got off to a hot start in the ballgame as after and error and a double put two men on in the bottom of the first inning, Chris Colabello doubled to bring home Alex Nunez and Abraham Nunez for a 2-0 Tornadoes lead. An Alex Trezza single two batters later brought home Colabello to make it 3-0. Worcester would add a run in the second to go up by four. A sac fly by Cam Monger in the fourth put the Tornadoes up 5-0.
The Colonials got on the board in the fifth with three hits including an RBI single from Danny Bomback to plate Quentin Davis. The base knock extended Bomback’s hitting streak to 13 games.
Rick Asadoorian (1-1) picked up the win, despite giving up the grand slam. Matt Lyons (1-1) took the loss for Pittsfield.
