Top 2: Alex Trezza solo HR (4) to LF ties it. He's really in form now.

Top 3: Carlos Rodriguez RBI single scores Alex Trezza. 4-1 Spirit.
Top 4: Ha-ha... Mr. Japanese Import Number Three is gone already... sucka. In comes Tom Thornton to pitch.
Top 5: Josue Lopez leads off the inning with ANOTHER hit! he has TWO in ONE GAME!... then he is knocked home by Brad Rea who hits an RBI single! 5-1 Spirit. Thornton pulled from the game.
Top 5: Jason Paul in to pitch for Nashua.
Top 5: Gary Roche adds an RBI single of his own, 6-1 North Shore.
Bot 6: With 2 outs and runners on first and second, Derek Drage comes in to pitch for the Spirit... Farley did alright tonight but nothing too dazzling.. he worked his way out of a lot of jams and put the Spirit in position to win.
Top 7: Holy !@$!@#!#@! JOSUE LOPEZ HAS THREE HITS AND NOW THREE RBI!!!!!!!!! A RBI double for Josue!!
Top 7: Angelo Burrows in to pitch for the Pride. Who?..... Spirit add a sac fly, 8-1
Bot 8: McNamara in to pitch for the Spirit.
Top 9: Seriously, the apocalypse is upon us... Josue Lopez has just hit ANOTHER RBI SINGLE for 4 hits and 4 RBI on the night. Seriously??!???!?!??!!!!?!??!?!?!??!?!??!?! Maybe there IS hope!
Top 9: Butch Hobson puts Brian Duplissie on the mound in the 9th...hahaha... wave that white flag, baby! 9-1 Spirit.... Gil Gil adds an RBI single making it 10-1 North Shore... Adam Balkan pinch hits for BJ Weed and will move into his spot in centerfield. 16 hits tonight for the Spirit. Nice.
Top 9: File this under "Insult to Injury": an E-6 allows Balkan to reach and scores the 11th Spirit run. Then Gary Roche adds an RBI groundout- 12-1. Our Nameless Color Commentator does not seem to grasp the concept of 'baseball teams have bad games over the course of a long season' - as if this is some major disaster for Nashua and they should just pack it in and not play the rest of the year.
