BRISTOL - It was a back-and-forth game, but in the end, the Bristol Blues were able to earn a 6-4 win over the Worcester Bravehearts Saturday night.

Berlin native Mitch Williams drove in what would be the winning run with a two-RBI single in the fifth for the Blues, while three others tallied an RBI apiece over the course of the game.

Bristol got on the board first with a three-run second inning thanks to singles by Garrett Blaylock and Brandon Grover and later a sacrifice fly by Nick Roy.

Worcester responded, however, with three runs of its own in the third off Michael Genaro.

The Bristol starter allowed four runs and six hits over five innings.

After Williams’ two RBI in the fifth inning, Mark Tumosa scored on a passed ball in the seventh to give the Blues a little more breathing room.

Tommy Curtin then entered in the ninth to earn the save.
