After two days off (one scheduled, one due to rain), the Navs return to action with another road game - their first trip to Pittsfield's historic Wahconah Park.

Pregame Notes: North Shore Navigators (8-5) @ Pittsfield Dukes (5-7)

-North Shore Stats
-Pittsfield Stats

-For those who followed the previous tenants of Fraser Field, this is a throwback matchup; in 2003, the Northeast League featured Lynn's North Shore Spirit and Pittsfield's Berkshire Black Bears. Wahconah Park, built in 1919, is one of the oldest and most historic ballparks in America.
-Pittsfield's season has taken a disastrous turn. Since starting 5-1, the Dukes have lost 6 games in a row.
-Their last game was an 11 inning loss on Sunday night against Holyoke. Zach Anderson gave up a run in the top of the 11th to earn the loss.
-Pittsfield's leading hitter, Craig Hertler of San Jose St., is hitting .375 with a .509 on base percentage. He does lag behind in slugging percentage (.400), however - 14 of his 15 hits have been singles.
-The Dukes have hit 4 home runs this season. The Navs - AKA, Mike Provencher - have hit 3.
-Pittsfield's .255 team batting average is good for third in the league; the Navs are 5th at .244.
-North Shore leads the league in pitching (2.20 ERA) and Pittsfield is in 6th (3.17).

Pitching Matchup
-For the Navs, Mike Adams will make his third start of the season. Adams has had trouble in his first two starts, going 0-2 with a 6.00 ERA. In his last outing, Adams gave up 7 runs in 5 innings as the Navs lost in Manchester, 8-4.
-The Dukes will send out Kyle Vazquez, who is 1-0 with a 1.38 ERA in 3 appearances. Opponents are hitting .233 against Vazquez.

Live Updates
-1:21 PM: We're leaving Lynn momentarily; hopefully we'll be able to check in with you on the other side from historic Wahconah Park.
