James McGann (Suffield, CT / Suffield HS) hit a crucial triple in the fifth inning, batting in three runs for the Cougars. Anthony Rosado-Burgos (Holyoke, Ma / Holyoke HS) was strong on the mound, earning the win while striking out six batters in five innings pitched. Jake Chaplin (Enfield, CT / Enfield HS) earned the save, striking out six batters while pitching the final four innings.
The Cougars are 1-3 overall and 1-3 in the region. They look forward to playing their first home games of the season on Saturday when they host Quincy College for a double-header at Cougar Field beginning at noon. Let's go Cougars!
