Silver Knights rally but can’t catch Suns

A late-inning resurgence fell short Thursday night for the Nashua Silver Knights in Pittsfield as the Suns held on for a 7-5 victory.

Pittsfield built a 4-0 lead after three innings but Nashua began clawing back into the game with Benjamin Cowles’ RBI double in the sixth.

A bases-loaded hit batsman and Dylan Jones’ RBI single brought in two more runs in the seventh.

Pittsfield scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh before the Silver Knights scored a pair in the eighth, one on Noah Lucier’s RBI single.

The Silver Knights are back at Holman Stadium tonight for a 6:45 game against Bristol.
