The Bristol Blues piled on five runs in the seventh and eighth innings to pick up a 6-4 victory on the road over the North Shore Navigators on Sunday evening, completing a game for the first time since Tuesday.

Down 3-1 with two out and the bases empty in the seventh, Mitch Williams reached first on an infield error and Max Goione made North Shore pay for the mistake by hitting a game-tying home run.

In the top of the eighth, Logan Green was hit by a pitch to start the frame, moving to second on a ground out. Mitch Guilmette then hit an RBI single to give the Blues a 4-3 lead, taking second on the throw home.

Jayson Gonzalez followed with another RBI single and Jake Frasca also got a base hit before the Navigators made a pitching change. It didn’t help, as Josh Zbierski was hit by a pitch to load the bases and Williams followed with an RBI single for a 6-3 lead.
