Boulders Lose Late to Federals, 6-5
RAMAPO, New York – The Rockland Boulders lost to the New York Federals on a rainy Saturday afternoon at Provident Bank Park, 6-5. Both teams were scheduled to play a double-header, but due to the threat of Hurricane Irene only one game was played.
The game involved an hour and ten minute rain delay after an inning of play, which the Boulders offense took advantage of. In the second, Rockland batted around in the order with Cristobal Santana driving in the two first runs and putting the Boulders 2-0. Cole Kraft and Ray Stokes also plated a run each to give the Boulders a 4-0 lead.
The Federals would add a run in the third on an error from Kraft to cut the deficit to 4-1.
Rockland took the run back in the fourth, thanks to an RBI double from Stokes making it a 5-1 Boulders edge.
New York began their comeback in the fifth off the Rockland bullpen. The Federals put together five consecutive hits off of relievers Kent Worthington and Casey Hodges to tie the game 5-5.
New York would then take the lead in the sixth. Former Boulder spring training camp invitee, Jose Reyes singled up the middle with two outs to put the Federals on top for good at 6-5.
The Boulders (18-20, 37-47) will travel to Worcester on Monday to play another double-header against the Tornadoes (23-14, 44-40).
The first game is scheduled for 4:05 PM.
