BROCKTON, Mass - It was not a good night for the Bristol Blues.

Bristol was swept in its doubleheader against the Brockton Rox Friday night, dropping the first game 8-5 and the second one 8-2.

Once again, the Blues found themselves with a comfortable lead in Game 1, having been up 5-0 after the top of the fifth, but the Rox responded with a six runs in the bottom of the frame to wipe away Bristol’s lead. Brockton then tacked on two more runs in the sixth to put the game away.
