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.
