Yard Goats late game heroics lead to big Sunday win

Goats overcome a four run seventh for a 7-6 win

The Hartford Yard Goats had to weather the storm on Tuesday night before coming through with some late game heroics and a big one run victory over Binghamton.

Correlle Prime led the way with two extra base hits and the game winning run in the 9th inning and the bullpen arms of Jerry Vasto and Matt Carasiti slammed the door to give the Goats a hard fought victory.

Raimel Tapia continued to torment Eastern League pitching with a 2-for-5 day, adding an RBI and a run scored. Tapia's .330 average leads the Eastern League, and the 22-year-old may be staring a September call up in the face if he can avoid injury and/or a cavernous slump.

German Marquez gave up 12 hits and five runs in the game, three of those runs came in the seventh inning, as Marquez struggled to get the final out. The Eastern League All-Star continued to show good swing and miss stuff with five Ks and only one walk in the performance. The Yard Goats improved to 50-42 with the win.
