Suns end losing streak with rain-shortened win over Mavericks
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. -- The Pittsfield Suns didn't generate much offense against Seacoast pitcher Tim Holmes. It didn't matter, because Holmes was as wild as the weather.
The Suns got a fourth-inning sacrifice fly from Luke Reynolds to score the only run in a rain-shortened, 1-0 win for Pittsfield on Tuesday night. The game was stopped after five by the weather.
The win ended Pittsfield's two-game losing streak.
Harrison Paige (1-0) got the win. The right-hander from American International College scattered four hits in five innings. He walked one and struck out one. Twice Seacoast had runners in scoring position, but couldn't produce a score.
The Suns got to Holmes in the top of the fifth. Morgan Phillips led off with a walk and after stealing second, Brendan Slattery walked. Holmes, who struck out four Suns hitters, got Ryan Olmo on strikes but walked Zach Goldstein to load the bases. Reynolds' sacrifice fly brought home Phillips with the only run of the game.
Rob McLam had both of Pittsfield's hits, a single and a double.
Pittsfield shortstop Devon Reed was hit by a pitch in the third inning and left the game.
