PORTSMOUTH, N.H. - For the second consecutive game, the Bristol Blues offense scored seven runs, lifting the team to a 7-4 win over the Seacoast Mavericks on the road on Saturday night.

The Blues scored two runs apiece in the fourth, fifth and seventh innings and their first run was scored in the first. The Mavericks held their only lead in the third inning, after scoring a pair to take an early 2-1 lead. But Bristol’s string of two-run innings was able to keep Seacoast at a distance.

Mitch Williams was the only Bristol batter to have a multi-hit day, going 2-for-3 at the plate. Williams and Kyle Pileski each picked up a pair of RBI. Ben Maycock and Mitch Guilmette each scored three runs.

Ross Weiner got the start for the Blues and pitched five innings of five-hit, four-run baseball, while also striking out six. Ian Halpin pitched three innings in relief and maintained his spotless ERA.

Tom Curtin entered the game for the Blues in the ninth and pitched a 1-2-3 inning to earn his third save in as many tries.
