SAXTONS RIVER -- On a perfect Sunday afternoon before a nice gathering of fans, the Saxtons River Pirates lost a doubleheader to the Burlington Brewers at picturesque Vermont Academy’s Lucy Stadium by the scores of 4-0 and 5-2.
In Game 1, the Pirates could only collect two hits, both by Jeremy Kilburn, off Brewers pitcher Mark Echo.
Adam Kuhn pitched a complete game for the Pirates and was very effective.
In Game 2, the Pirates were cruising along with a 2-0 lead entering the bottom of the sixth when defensive lapses opened the flood gates and Burlington scored five runs.
Alex Drost went the distance for Saxtons River, giving up only one earned run.
