An eight run third inning propelled the Hartford Hawks to a 10-4 win over the Bobcats. Bobcat starter George Dummar lasted just 2 1/3 innings, giving up eight runs on eight hits and three walks.
After a scoreless first and second, the Hawks exploded in the third. After Dummar retired the first batter of the inning, the next nine batters reached base. The Hawks scored seven of their eight runs before another out was recorded. Even when the Bobcats (6-24) could record the second out, the Hawks still managed to score.
The Bobcats got on the board in the fifth. Ryan Ullrich drove in the first run with a single to right. The Bobcats added another run as the Hawks committed two errors on the same play.
But the Hawks got the two runs right back in the bottom of the inning on a bases loaded walk and a sacrifice fly.
The Bobcats finished the scoring in the eighth. Brian Monack drove in the third run of the game with a groundout to first. Joe Poletsky drove in the last run with a sacrifice fly to center.
The Bobcats face rival Yale on Wednesday.
