(Norwich, CT) –The Norwich Sea Unicorns won for the fourth straight game and eighth time in their last nine games, beating the Nashua Silver Nights 6-1 Wednesday night at Dodd Stadium. Matt Malcom (East Lyme, CT/Eastern CT State University) hit a home run and scored twice and Payton Sutman (Waterford, CT/Holy Cross), Kenny Heon (Montville, CT/Mitchell), and Spencer Fox (Manchester, CT/Southern CT State University) combined to strike out 11 batters and hold Nashua to one run on four hits.

Tremayne Cobb (Huntington, MD/University of Hartford) drove in two runs, opening the scoring with an RBI groundout in the first and knocking in another with an RBI single in a two-run third inning. Malcom drove a solo shot over the left-centerfield wall to make 4-1 Sea Unicorns after four. He also scored on a heads-up base-running play, tagging up from third on a foul pop to the first baseman by Korey Morton (Norwalk, CT/UConn) in the eighth to score when home plate was left uncovered.

Sutman went four innings in the start on the mound, yielding just two hits. Heon struck out the side in the fifth. However, Fox stole the show with an electric three innings of relief that included five straight strikeouts and his seventh total punch out to end the ball game.
