Tigers Fall in Final Road Game in 2019
Burlington, VT - Jake Holton went 1-for-4 with the only RBI in the contest, but the Connecticut Tigers (34-39) fell by a final score of 2-1 to the Vermont Lake Monsters (33-40). The contest went 12 innings, which was the longest Tigers game of the 2019 season.
Vermont got on the board first in the fourth inning with an RBI double by Shane Selman off of Xavier Javier to make it 1-0. Javier went four innings with one unearned run, two walks and three strikeouts.
The Tigers did not score until the ninth inning of the contest. After Ryan Kreidler walked, Jose Rivas threw the ball away trying to pick Kreidler off at first, and he moved to second on the play. Holton followed with a two-out RBI single to tie the game at 1-1.
In extra innings, the Tigers put runners in scoring position in each of the three innings. However, they were unable to cash in. Vince Coletti pitched 2.1 scoreless innings with no runs on two hits and two strikeouts. Clark Cota (Win, 2-3) pitched a scoreless inning with no hits and a strikeout.
In the bottom of the 12th inning, Vermont loaded the bases with one out on back-to-back walks from Alfredo Silva (Loss, 0-1). Kevin Richards walked with the bases loaded to win the contest for the Lake Monsters. This was the second time in the last two nights Richards brought home the winning run.
