July 17th, 2013

Leading 5-1 after the second inning, Lloyd tacked on three runs in the third behind CJ Tozzi’s two-run double and Ryan LaMark’s RBI-double. They made it 9-1 in the fourth with a bases-loaded walk before Sam Ruiz hit a two-run double in the fifth after Joey Pugliese and Steven Panquin hit RBI-singles in the inning.

“What you saw here, it’s what we’re capable of doing. It’s been up and down,” said Pugliese.

Coming into the game, Lloyd split a double-header with Saugerties after going 0-4 in a Rhode Island tournament.

But Saturday, they made it work as they get ready for the postseason.

“We can make some noise when we play,” said Pugliese.
