Wednesday: Beverly - 4, Hamilton - 3

The Hamilton Generals took a 3 to 2 lead into the bottom of the 7th but the Beverly Giants struck for 2 runs with most of the damage coming after there were two outs.

Rocky Pisa Jr., making his ITL debut, led off the 7th inning with a single.  After two outs were recorded, Pisa scored all the way from first on an Andy Brown single that was misplayed in the outfield.  A couple of batters later the bases were loaded for Joe Bliss.  Bliss came through with a run scoring single giving the Beverly Giants their second walkoff win in the last three games.

Josh Levesque went the distance for the Giants allowing 3 runs (1 earned) in seven innings with 10 strikeouts.  Offensively, Brown was 3 for 4 with 2 runs scored while Bliss, Pisa, and Levesque all collected 2 hits.

Hamilton only had 3 hits on the night but made the most of them plating 3 runs.  Drew Taylor was charged with the loss pitching 6.2 innings and allowing 4 runs (1 earned) while striking out 6.
