Milford Micros Downs Hopkinton, 8-5

Fino Field continued to play host to winning baseball on Thursday, June 28 as Milford Micros defeated Hopkinton, 8-5. The win improves Milford to 7-1 on the season and keeps them atop of the division with a one game lead over Bellingham.
Milford was led by starting pitcher Bryan Hildebrand. The left-hander went 5+ innings while giving up four earned runs on seven hits. The Milford starter also walked four and struck out four in the winning effort.
"Bryan Hildebrand was out there by himself today," said Milford coach Jim Cappadoro. "He threw really well, kept the ball down and kept the team in it."
In his first start of the season, Hildebrand showed flashes of dominance. He battled back after falling behind in the count on numerous occasions and was able to keep Milford in the game long enough for the offense to take over.
The Milford offense was streaky, but was still able to break out for a big inning in the fifth.
"The offense tonight was asleep," said Milford coach Steve Shaddock. "They really only had one inning where they woke up...then they went back to sleep."
Despite Milford's offensive struggles throughout most of the game, the offense came through when they needed to. Down 4-3 in the bottom of the fifth, Milford's bats came alive as they scored five runs on six hits. Two of the six hits in the inning for Milford were triples by Cam Cossette and Alex Tonkonogy.
"We got people over and got people in when we needed to," said Cappadoro in regards to the offense.
Tonkonogy's triple drove in Cossette and really got the offense going late in the game. After working the count throughout the at-bat, Tonkonogy struck big with a deep drive to put Milford ahead for good. The second baseman finished at 1-for-4 on the night with an RBI triple.
Although the win keeps Milford in first place, the coaching staff still believes that there is a lot of room for improvement.
"It's a win you'll take, but not a win you're happy with," said Shaddock.
Milford's schedule continues to get tougher as they prepare to welcome Holliston to Fino Field on Friday, June 29 at 7 p.m. Milford then heads on the road to play Bellingham on July 2. Bellingham is the only team to defeat Milford so far this season.
"We've got Holliston on Friday and a big Bellingham game Monday night," said Cappadoro. "That is where our heads are at right now."
