BaseballGonzalez Hits Go-Ahead Home Run To Lead To 2-1 Patriots Win by Somerset Patriots July 9, 2016 Bridgewater, NJ – The Somerset Patriots (5-1, 43-33) defeated the Lancaster Barnstormers (2-3, 36-38) 2-1 at TD Bank Ballpark on Saturday evening. With the win, the Patriots are 7-1 in their last eight games played. The Barnstormers took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning on a home run by Sean Halton (9). Somerset responded with a run in the bottom of the frame on a Bryan LaHair RBI single that tied up the game. The Patriots took the lead in the fifth inning on a solo home run by Yovan Gonzalez (2). “The first pitch was a curveball. The next one was a sinker in.

Eric Farris went 3-for-4 with a run scored to help pace the Somerset offense. Donovan Hand (3-1) picked up the win, allowing a run on six hits in six innings pitched.
