Bridegrooms Score Late, Stun Blue Pirates, 4-3
The Maryland Bridegrooms took Ontario pitcher Chet Ward's best shot and still were able to claim a win at Farmers Market Stadium. The final score had Maryland getting past the Blue Pirates, 4-3. Ward went 7 innings and allowed 1 earned run, striking out 4. Maryland reliever Rubén Aguilera picked up the win, upping his record to 3-1. Edwin Mercer was saddled with the loss. António Garza got the save, his 27th in 31 chances.

Maryland needed the clutch hitting of Eddie Taylor to notch the win. The third baseman hammered a 2-run home run in the top of the ninth inning to put the Bridegrooms on top, 4-3. For the game, Taylor had 1 home run and 1 single in 5 at-bats.

"This kind of win will certainly make our fans happy," Taylor told the Maryland Observer.

Maryland now sits at 45-62, while Ontario falls to 43-64.
