The Knights broke open a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the fourth inning on a two- run double by Mike Sherburne (North Kingstown, RI) and a bases clearing triple by Marc Dorsi (West Haven, CT) to propel them to victory. Dorsi led the offense with three hits and three RBIs.
Joe Portukalian (Cranston, RI) picked up the win going five innings, giving up seven hits and four runs. Rodger Lincoln (East Providence, RI) came on in relief of Portukalian and pitched spectacular as he shut out Mass Bay over the final four innings to close out the game and seal the victory for the Knights.
The team will travel to Washington Park in Groton, CT on Saturday at 12noon for a Region XXI conference showdown with rival Pointers of UConn-Avery Point to decide the conference title and home seed next weekend for the regional championships.
