Cougars Escape Against Wilton, 8-7
With a late rally in the seventh, the Cougars overcame a somewhat sloppy game to beat Wilton. "We may not have totally deserved this win considering how flat we were for much of the game," commented Coach Blaisdell, "but, to their credit, the boys found a way to push some runs across to escape with this win. Hopefully, we can learn from this." The Cougars found themselves down 3-1 after two innings, but clawed back within a run 5-4 after three. Wilton added two more in the fifth to open up a 7-4 lead going into the last inning. Added Coach Brandt, "We kind of woke up just in the knick of time." Zach Martin led off the last inning with a walk followed by a force out and two more walks. Centerfielder Hunter Crawford then delivered a big hit to score two. After two more walks which tied the game, co-captain Brendan Mulcahy drew another walk for the game-winning RBI. 1B Alex Drake and 3B Owen Clemans each had two hits in the Cougars' win.
