(New Britain, CT) - The Norwich Sea Unicorns won their season-best fourth in a row, taking the lead in the eighth on a two-run home run by Colton Bender (Lebanon, CT/Quinnipiac University) to beat the New Britain Bees 4-3 Thursday night on the road.

Bender gave the Sea Unicorns the lead for the first time with his second home run in as many nights, finishing the night 3-4 with a run and two RBI. Michael Torniero (East Haven, CT/Central CT State University) went 3-4 with three runs in his Sea Unicorns debut, joining the team this week following his run with the CCSU Blue Devils to the NCAA Regionals.

Down 2-0 after three, Dean Slavin (Tappan, NY/Eastern CT State University) put the Sea Unicorns on the board with a sacrifice fly in the fourth. Tremayne Cobb (Huntington, MD/University of Hartford) tied the game for Norwich with an RBI double to right-centerfield in the sixth.

The combination of Brad Lombardi (East Greenwich, RI/Boston College), Tommy Hughes (Newington, CT/Southern CT State University), and Kalib Clark (Waterbury, CT/Post University) made the comeback hold up on the mound for the Sea Unicorns. Lombardi went 6.1 innings, allowing two earned with three strikeouts in the start. Hughes went 1.2 innings, earning the win by striking out the side in the eighth and stranding the potential tying and go-ahead runs on base. Clark earned the save with a scoreless ninth.

The Sea Unicorns take on the Worcester Bravehearts on the road Friday at 6:35 pm.
