(Sorry for no photos everyone. The website isn't allowing us to upload 'em)

9:58 PM - Apologies for not updating, but no fear, the Navs pulled it out. Solid outing for Lisowski, a career night for McNaughton, all smiles at Fraser. Navs win 9-1.

9:28 PM - ATTENTION, ATTENTION: With McNaw at the plate, Chris "Killer" Kowalski is now taking swings in the on-deck circle. The RHP has been known to put a few outta the park in batting practice.

*Sorry for not noting, John Griffin pinch-hit for Costello in the sixth, and Kent Graham pinch hit for Provencher in the seventh. Ryan McCrann is now playing second base.

9:18 PM - Ryan Krull is in to relieve Jimmy Lisowski, who put together another stellar night, allowing one run on 5 hits through seven innings striking out three batters and walking one. Well done, Jimmy, well done.

9:07 PM - Joe Gravs and I just returned to press row following our embarassing performance in the dizzy bat competition. After ten spins, Joe Grav had trouble getting that first step, falling straight back on his butt. I managed to stagger my way down the third base line, leaning to the right, then left, then right, then left until I crossed the finish line. Anyway, the Navs got two more runs in the bottom of the sixth thanks to runs by McNaw and Belcher. McNaw reached on a single, making him 4-4 on the day. Navs 9-1

8:48 PM - Lisowski gets the Sox to go 1-2-3 in the sixth. He has really settled in. So far, he's given up 1 run on 5 hits.

8:39 PM - Costello and Hill welcomed White to the game with back to back singles, Hill's scoring Kuehl from second. 7-1 Navs

8:36 PM - James White replaces Gariano on the mound for Holyoke. (4 IP, 7 R, 7 H, 5 K, 2 BB)

8:23 PM - McNaw wanted to make remind Provencher that this is his night. He just unloaded on a ball that reached perhaps the deepest part of the park in center. 1 Double, 2 Triples, 4 RBIs. 6-1 Navs

8:21 PM - Immediately following the roar of a fan saying "It's clobbering time!", Mike Provencher launched a double off the wall in right field, scoring Trent from third and Zurk from second. 4-1 Navs

Side note: We were just informed that Joe Grav and I will be competing in the 7th inning Dizzy Bat competition for a string of bowling. This is big. This is for bragging rights in the Sports Information Department. Probably shouldn't have eaten that pizza...

8:04 PM - An Adam Dimino bloop single over the outreached glove of Zurk allowed Killeen to score from second after his double. 2-1 Navs

7:54 PM - McNaw's at it again. After Provencher moved Little from second to third, McNaw roped a double down the left field line for his second RBI of the night. 2-0 Navs

7:39 PM - Gariano gets Zurk to chase one down and away to end the inning, stranding John Hill on second. After 2, still 1-0 Navs.

7:32 PM - In his first ever at-bat with the North Shore Navigators, 1B Mathew Costello hit into a harmless 4-3 ground ball out.

7:29 PM - Holyoke was able to advance a runner to second base for the second inning in a row, but Shepard grounded out to Kuehl at second to end the half-inning.

7:20 PM - Triple by Sean McNaughton to the right-centerfield fence, bringing Mike Provencher to the plate. 1-0 Navs.

7:12 PM - Lisowski just got Killeen to line out to Zurk at short to retire the Sox. Hilliard had walked and stole second, but was stranded at second.

7:04 PM - First pitch to Shima...STRIKE 1.
