Keene Swamp Bats outslug Danbury


Zach Lauricella blasted two homers to lead the Keene Swamp Bats to an 8-7 victory over the Danbury (Conn.) Westerners before 985 fans on Saturday night at Keene's Alumni Field.

Lauricella, from St. John's University, smoked a three-run homer and a two-run shot to lead Keene (16-18).

The Swamp Bats once led 7-3, but Danbury tied it with three runs in the fifth and one in the sixth. Keene regained the lead for good in the bottom of the sixth, on a wild pitch.

Keene's late relief pitching excelled. Michael Dunnigan hurled a scoreless seventh and eighth, and Southern New Hampshire University's Ben Criscuolo pitched a perfect ninth, striking out two.

Taylor Perez (St. Leo) added a solo homer for Keene, which visits Mystic (Conn.) tonight at 6:05 p.m.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
