No breaks for Phils in 8th

Mike Fiers gave up a lead off single to Ken Jacobi and was lifted for Mark Lamm (Vanderbilt).
Fiers would finish with seven innings pitched, giving up three unearned runs on six hits. He walked on, hit a batter and struck out five.
Lamm came on with confidence and sent down the next three batters with two strikeouts and a ground out to third.

The Phillies came to life again against Bennington's reliever Bosley.
Eric Walker (Oaklahoma State) hit a one-out single that droped into left center and then hit Mark Riffee. After walking Corey Hunt to load the bases, the Bomber's coach had seen enough.
Bosley was lifted for newly aquired Franklin Pierce right-hander John Handy.
Donnie Web hit a dribbler to third and Sean Donovan (UAlbany) flipped to catcher Paul Panik (Canisius) to force Walker at home for the second out.
With bases loaded, two outs and coach Garret Baron lookimg to make something happen, he sent Riffee from third on Handy's wind-up.
Panik caught the 2-1 pitch and then dove towards a diving Riffee at home. After the dust cleared, umpire Dave Sherman called the Phillie out to end the threat.
Despite a plea from Riffee and a conversation with Baron, Saratoga took the field down, 3-2.
