Local roundup: Vermont beats Tigers 5-4 in first of two

Burlington, Vt. — Jesus Lage walked with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth to give the Vermont Lake Monsters a 5-4 victory over the Connecticut Tigers in the completion of a suspended New York-Penn League baseball game on Tuesday night.

The game was suspended after just seven pitches on Monday due to rain. The regular-scheduled second game ended too late for this edition.

With two outs and nobody on, Payton Squier tripled and the Tigers (2-2) intentionally walked two batters to load the bases, but losing pitcher Jhonny Mateo walked Lage and Squier trotted home to score the game-winning run.

Cesar Gonzalez had two of Connecticut's four hits, going 2-for-3 and scoring twice, while Jose King added a two-run double in the fourth.
