NABA Championship Game

Karma finally came around for the Bridgeport All-Stars. After some heartbreaking defeats over the last couple of season, they pulled out one of the most dramatic comebacks to win the NABA title over the defending Champs Meriden Blaze.

Meriden's starter, Derek Drag, cruised through the 1st 8 inning. Only giving up 4 hits and securing a 2-1 lead. The Blaze scored on an RBI single by Fransisco Asencio in the 2nd and a double by Justin Poirier in the 3rd. Bridgeport starter, Dom Merole settled down to blank the Blaze for 3 more innings before giving way to Steve Struckero. The All-Stars finally put a run on the board in the 6th and a basesload walk by Sal Savo.

The score remained the same (2-1) until the top of the 9th inning. The Blaze brought in last years pitcher of the year, Donny Crook, to close out the game. The move made sense because Crook has been dominant for the past 2 years and the All-Stars had never faced the hard throwing righty. After falling behind to the All-Star's leadoff hitter, Mike Lucas...he greeted Crook with a long double. Savo got Lucas over with a ground ball to the rightside of the infield. With 1 out and Lucas on 3rd, Mike Tamsin walked up to the plate. Tamsin hit a ground ball to1st base but the Blaze first baseman elected to give up the run and clear the bases with 2 outs and not let the go ahead run get on base. With the score tied at 2, Alberto Martinez got a broken bat single and Mark Consorte hit a moon shot into Right center to score Martinez all the way from 1st to put the All-Stars up 3-2.

The Blaze didn't go down quietly against Bridgeport closer Aj Neville. They had men on 2nd and 3rd with 2 outs but Neville slammed the door striking out the last Blaze hitter to end the game.
