Bristol Eastern 2, Maloney 0: Mike Giovinazzo is inching closer and closer to career win No. 600 as the Bristol Eastern baseball team’s head coach, and he has his red-hot Lancers to thank for that.

Ethan Rembish (2-for-3, double, RBI, run) led the way for St. Paul, which also got a double, RBI and run scored from Thayer and Ryan Daniels. Walker Sharp finished 2-for-3 with an RBI and run scored.
Terryville 2, Gilbert 1 (9 innings): For the second straight night, the Kangaroos (3-2) won a thriller, defeating Gilbert (1-5) on a throwing error with two outs in the ninth to plate the winning run.
