Colin Bates 2 2/3 scoreless innings for win ... Vermont has also won its last 7 home games and host Williamsport Monday at 7:05


BURLINGTON, VT --- The Vermont Lake Monsters won their team-record tying eighth straight game as they scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to rally from a 3-1 deficit and defeat the Williamsport Crosscutters 4-3 in New York-Penn League action Sunday afternoon at historic Centennial Field.

The Lake Monsters fell behind early 3-0 as the Crosscutters scored two runs in the second and another in the fourth. Michael Dabbs hit a leadoff home run in the second off Vermont starter Taylor Jordan, who later in the inning gave up an unearned run on a Jim Klocke RBI groundout. Williamsport’s fourth-inning run came across on a Jordan wild pitch after a single and two groundouts.

Vermont got on the board in the fourth inning with an unearned run off Williamsport starter Kevin Angelle, who allowed just one hit with three walks and four strikeouts over five innings to lower his ERA to 0.37 in his four starts. Jason Martinson reached on an error to start the inning, advanced to second on a Stephen King single and to third on a balk before scoring on a David Freitas groundout.

Crosscutter reliever Jake Borup (0-1) took over for Angelle and walked King to leadoff the inning. Freitas followed with a double to leftcenter and King was able to score when centerfielder Kyrell Hudson had trouble fielding the ball for an error. After a walk to Cole Leonida, Wade Moore tied the game with a groundball single to center scoring Freitas and Marcus Jones followed an out later with a flyball single to right to score Leonida with the go ahead run.

Colin Bates (1-0) allowed one hit in 2 2/3 scoreless innings to pick up his first win in relief of Jordan, who allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits over 5 1/3 innings. Neil Holland had a strikeout and gave up a two-out infield single in the ninth inning to earn his second save of the year.
