BURLINGTON, VT — The Lake Monsters scored just one run on one hit on Saturday night at historic Centennial Field, but the four runs that Vermont had scored in the first inning back on July 14th were more than enough for a 5-1 Futures League victory in the completion of a suspended game against the Nashua Silver Knights. 

Back on July 14th, Vermont had scored four runs on four hits in the bottom of the first inning, including a pair of RBI singles from Harvard teammates Jordan Kang and Callan Fang. The score remained 4-0 until the top of fourth inning when the game was suspended by weather.

When the game resumed Saturday night in the top of the fourth, neither team could muster a base hit until the eighth when Nashua scored on a one-out single and two-out RBI double. Francis Ferguson (Eastern Nazarene) came on in relief for Vermont when the game resumed and allowed just the one run on two hits with a walk and eight strikeouts over 4 ⅔ innings. 

The Lake Monsters got their first hit since the third inning (back on July 14th) on a Teddy Schoenfeld (MIT) single in the eighth to load the bases after a pair of walks. Tommy Martin (Yale) then collected Vermont’s third walk of the inning to force home a run to make it 5-1. 

Sean Gamble (Minnesota State) struckout three of the final four Nashua batters of the game to earn his third save of the season. The regularly-scheduled game for Saturday was postponed with Vermont and Nashua now scheduled to play a pair of seven-inning contest 4:05pm Sunday at Centennial Field.
