Sanford Mainers shut out Vermont Mountaineers on opening day

The Sanford Mainers shut out the Vermont Mountaineers 2-0 on Tuesday, June 4, the opening day of the NECBL league season. The Mainers took a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning when Matt Miceli drove in Devan Kodani on an RBI triple. Miceli scored on a passed ball four pitches later to give Sanford a 2-0 lead.

The two runs were enough support for Connor Ball as he threw six scoreless innings, allowing three hits while striking out four.
