Bridgewater Township, NJ - After a forgetful night on Tuesday, the High Point Rockers returned to TD Bank Ballpark to get revenge against the Somerset Patriots. They got just that on Wednesday, beating the Patriots 3-1 enroute to Jamie Keefe’s 900th win as a Manager.
Dante Bichette Jr. was called out on a double play, however Hector Gomez was able to bring the first run of the night for the Rockers. Tuesday’s hero, Edwin Espinal hit a line drive to center field, bringing in Alfredo Rodriguez for the only run of the night for the Patriots. Much like he did against the York Revolution, Quincy Latimore hit a home run to give the Rockers a 3-1 victory.
The Rockers will be back in action Thursday to try and win the series against the Patriots. The Rockers return home Friday against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. To get your tickets, you can visit www.highpointrockers.com or call 336-888-1000.
