The Spartans had a 6-2 lead going into the bottom of the 6th, and the Lancers took advantage of a call that went their way and a bunch of hits to score 9 runs on their way to an 11-7 win against EL.
Longmeadow had a 2-0 lead early, but the Spartans struck back. Andrew Difiore and Chris Koetsch had hits, and after one of them was out on a fielder's choice, Mike Maggipinto launched a 290 foot blast to the warning track in right field for a triple and an RBI to get the Spartans on the board. Danny Miller followed with a 2 out base hit up the middle to score Mike and tie the game.
The Spartans pulled ahead in the 4th when Matt Indomenico came off the bench to double. After a couple of walks, Jimmy Stone had a sharp 2 RBI base hit. Another run scored on a fielder's choice to bring the Spartan lead up to 5-2.
Matt had his second of three hits on the day with an RBI base hit in the 5th, but unfortunately the wheels came off the bus in the bottom of the 6th, and the Lancer win was sealed.
Matt led the team with a 3 for 3 performance today. Mike was 2 for 2 with a double and a triple, Jimmy had 2 hits, and Willie St. Marie, Andrew D, CK, Danny, and Eric Girard had one apiece.
