August 11th, 2022. 315 days since the last time the Vermont Lake Monsters came into Historic Holman Stadium. Nashua’s 2022 rival headed to the 603 for the first time in 2023, with the Knights looking for revenge for a loss up in Vermont just a few weeks ago. Trying to get back at the Monsters, the Knights fell short once again in a dominating win from Vermont 8-2.

Thursday night was all about the Vermont lineup. Seven of the nine hitters all recorded hits, with the Monsters posting eight or more runs for the second straight game. Six different hitters secured RBIs as well, with Wake Forest’s Andrew Noland leading the column with two RBIs on a 2-3 day.

For Nashua, their offensive day could not have been more opposite of Vermont’s. Only three hits on the day, going scoreless after the third inning. Colby’s Brady O’Brien was the lone bright spot for the Knights, going 1-3 with an RBI double. Northeastern’s Will Fosberg brought home New England’s Luca Giallongo on a fielders choice for a first-inning RBI, with Clark’s Ryan Caulfield tallying the other hit for Nashua to round out their day in the statbook.

Vermont jumped out over the Knights early, posting back-to-back two-run innings in the first and second. Colby’s Thomas Rioux had a tough time in his sixth start of the season, getting the loss in his four innings of work. 

Runs in the fifth, sixth, and seventh for the Monsters would put things out of reach for Nashua. Behind the arms of UMass Dartmouth’s Geordan Jackson Murphy and Northeastern’s Carson Walsh, Vermont would coast to the finish with three and ⅓ scoreless innings between the two.

Harvard’s Callan Fang capped off Vermont’s 18th win, throwing four strikeouts in one and ⅓ frames. Nashua has now dropped back to back games, now sitting at 7-19.

Needing to get back into the win column, the Silver Knights will end their four game homestand with a Friday matchup against Norwich. Nashua and the Sea Unicorns are set for a 6:00 PM first pitch.
