Pit Spitters Snap Seven Game Losing Streak With 7-2 Win Over Rockers
TRAVERSE CITY – The Traverse City Pit Spitters scored six runs in the second inning on their way to a 7-2 win over the Green Bay Rockers on Monday night. The win snapped a seven-game losing streak for Traverse City.
Trey Truitt got the scoring started with a two-run home run to kick off the six-run second.
Eight of the nine Pit Spitters hitters registered a hit in the victory.
“It always feels good, whether you’re on a losing streak or on a winning streak, it always feels good to score early and get some momentum early,” manager Josh Rebandt said after the game. “We’ve had a ton of close games over the last 10 games. A lot have been extra innings or lead changes in the ninth or one run games, two run games. So we’ve been able to play in some really tough games and I think that’s going to help us in the long run.”
Pit Spitters starting pitcher Aaron Forrest threw five innings and while he did give up nine hits he allowed just one run.
