Bravehearts, Starfires Halted Mid-Game By Rain

Game Will Resume in the 3rd Inning at a Later Date

The Worcester Bravehearts led 1-0 over the Westfield Starfires in the bottom of the 3rd inning when the game was suspended due to rain at Fitton Field Wednesday. The contest will resume at a later date, with the bases loaded, nobody out, and Worcester’s Joey Rubin at the plate in a 1-1 count.

Worcester took its 1-0 advantage in the 1st, when a Matt Milone (SUNY Maritime) sacrifice fly scored CJ Egrie (Holy Cross) from third. The RBI marked Milone’s team-leading 17th of the season.

On the mound, Shrewsbury’s Ben Griffith (Binghamton) tossed three scoreless innings. The right-hander allowed three hits and struck out four Westfield hitters.

Worcester loaded the bases in the 3rd when Nathan Samii (Middlebury) grounded a single to third, Franklin’s Henry DiGiorgio walked, and Egrie reached first on a bunt hit. With Rubin at the plate in a 1-1 count, the game was suspended. It will resume at that spot as part of a doubleheader when Westfield returns to Worcester on July 12th and 13th. Wednesday’s resumption will be completed as a nine-inning contest, and the regularly-scheduled game to follow will be seven innings.

Worcester’s next game is Thursday against the Norwich Sea Unicorns. First pitch at Fitton Field is set for 6:30 p.m.

The following evening, on Friday, June 28, the Bravehearts host their annual Military Appreciation Night presented by Carr Financial Group at 6:30 p.m. at Fitton Field. All veterans and active military receive free admission.
