Bierfeldt drives in three in Titans 5-2 comeback win at North Shore.
NORTH SHORE: The Torrington Titans are as glad to have former Torrington High School star, Conor Bierfeldt, on their 2012 team as the former Raider is as well.
The results on the field have translated into a 2-0 start as the Titans used a four-run seventh to beat the North Shore Navigators by a 5-2 win.
All Bierfeldt did Thursday night in the teams home opener was blast a 340 foot two-run home run in an 11-6 win over the Wachusett Dirt Dawgs.
His drive came with his team up by a 7-0 score that night, Friday night on the teams first road trip, Bierfeldt showed he could be clutch as well.
His one out triple in the top of the seventh broke a 2-2 tie and gave him five RBI’s in two games, best in the Futures Collegiate Baseball League after two games.
It should not surprise anyone that Bierfeldt tends not to let runners stay on base too long.
The Western Connecticut State junior led the Little East with 50 ribbies in 37 games, earning him the 2012 New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association Player of the Year for his stellar play for the Colonials.
Jordan Lozzi got the start for the Titans and the junior from Wesley College was solid in five innings in which he gave up two runs (one earned) and just four hits.
Derek Richards, a sophomore from Babson College, pitched three scoreless innings to get the win while Lynn University freshman Austin Bailey pitched a perfect ninth for his first save.
The bottom of the Titans order had a productive night as shortstop Kevin Lum (2-4, run, RBI) and Jordan Serena (1-4, 2 runs) helped the Titans erase an early 2-0 lead.
Serena started the four-run rally in the seventh with a double and scored on a Lum single and an error by the Navigators catcher.
After the Bierfeldt triple, Polk State freshman Aldo Ferrante singled for the innings fourth and final run.
The Titans return to action on Sunday afternoon when they take on the Pittsfield Sun at Fuessenich Park with first pitch scheduled for 1 p.m.
Pittsfield comes to Torrington with a 2-0 record.
Kenyon College junior, Tyler Dierke will take the ball for the 2-0 Titans.
