NEW BRITAIN, CT.—Southern Maryland came into the game having not scored five or more runs in seven straight games and that streak was extended today as the Blue Crabs fell to New Britain in the series finale by the final of 6-1.
The combination of a five run third inning and the pitching performance by the lefty Josh Outman led the Bees to victory. With the bases loaded, Anthony Hewitt ripped a bases clearing double to make it 3-0 New Britain. The next hitter Jovan Rosa singled to center to score Hewitt. A couple of hitters later and with two runners on, former Blue Crab Craig Maddox scored on an error by Angel Flores to complete the five run inning.
That was all LHP Josh Outman needed as he threw a complete game allowing just one earned run and striking out five. No hitter in the Blue Crabs order got more than hit.
