In the 8-3 win Thursday, the Patriots started early with two runs in the first inning and added two more in the fourth for an early lead that they never gave up.
Wednesday night was a different story altogether. Head Coach Jeff Hewitt’s team was trailing the Scots 1-0 in the sixth inning when they broke the game wide open scoring seven runs for the win.
