NEW BRITAIN, CT. – The New Britain Bees (34-33, 70-67) topped the Somerset Patriots (37-30, 75-62) 4-1 yesterday evening at New Britain Stadium.

“The bottom of the order beat me all night and that fourth inning makes me ill, but I was able to settle down and give our team a chance,” said starting pitcher Donovan Hand. “Bottom line with three games remaining the ball is still in our court.”

Somerset scored in the top of the second via an RBI ground out by Kyle Roller.
