Liguori found himself in a bit of a jam in the top of the fifth inning when Jim Love scorched a one-out single to right field then took second on a wild pitch. But Liguori was able to get the next two batters to pop up.
John Foster took to the mound for the Rams in the top of the sixth. Other than hitting Stewart with a pitch, he equated himself well, allowing no runs as catcher Drew Fecteau found himself catching a popup almost inside the Generals’ dugout along the way.
Left hander Joey Martin got some work on the mound as well in the top of the seventh and would only give up a single to Love to put a capper on the evening.
“(The Rams) put it together tonight,” said Viltale, who also coaches the Generals. “They’ve got a good squad, it looks like a lot of college kids. Woody has got them playing well and (the league) is a battle this year. There’s only two points separating everybody, so it’s really tight this year. And obviously tonight was a tough one.”
“This is what we need to do,” said Wood. “Tonight’s game is how we’re built to play. This is really how we should be playing. When you get pitching, and offense and defense it makes the game pretty fun and pretty easy. So, we’re back at it (in Hamilton) with these guys tomorrow night.”
