TORRINGTON: Of late, the bats of the Torrington Titans have taken a while to get cooking. Late game rallies have been the norm.

Sometimes that has worked, other times the hole has been too deep.

On Sunday, Jake McGuiggan and JJ Gould made sure the subject of late inning heroics didn’t have to come up.

 McGuiggan put the icing on a three-run first inning with a two-run home run and Gould followed with a solo shot the next inning and the Titans beat the North Shore Navigators by a 5-2 score.

Chris Hatfield continued his solid stretch of solid pitching with six innings of shutout ball, giving him 13 straight over his last two starts.

The right hander allowed just three hits and struck out five as Torrington improves to 12-17 on the year.

Alex Disanto saved his seventh game of the year (second in the FCBL) and ran his streak of not being scored on to 11 games this summer.

North Shore falls to 14-15 with the loss.

The Titans are off on Monday before playing on Tuesday night against the second place Nashua Silver Knight (20-9).
