We make that catch, that’s an out, the next ball is a ground ball and we’re out of the inning probably. Instead of a seven- run inning it’s a one- run inning.”

“I despise the N0- run rule for that reason only,” Parisi said. “I would have liked to have gotten a couple other guys who haven’t seen a whole lot of action into the game, particularly there were a couple of pitchers.”
With both teams nearing the end of their seasons, the young Patriots are looking to grow and learn lessons while the Explorers look to become a deadly team come playoff time.

“The whole team is doing well [and] we’re going to be one hell of a team to play when the playoffs hit,” Picard said.
