WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — The Upper Valley Nighthawks regained their winning form Tuesday, defeating the Vermont Mountaineers, 9-3, in an NECBL baseball game at Maxfield Sports Complex.

The Nighthawks (11-8) came from behind for the win as the Mountaineers (10-10) took a 1-0 lead in the first inning. Upper Valley scored three times in the fourth inning to go ahead. Designated hitter Raphael Pelletier (Kansas State) hit an RBI single to tie the game, and then shortstop Luca Trigiani (St. Josephs) hit a two-RBI double.

Second baseman Max Viera (Northeastern) led the way for the Nighthawks, going 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored. Pelletier and Trigiani also enjoyed multi-hit games.

Third baseman Gehrig Anglin (Wright State) hit his second home run of the season, a three-run shot in the eighth inning.

Hartford High alum Jordy Allard (Richmond) was Upper Valley’s starting pitcher. He threw five innings, surrendering three runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk with two strikeouts. Alex Theis (Wright State) relieved Allard and allowed two unearned runs, charged to Allard, to score in the sixth.

Relievers Randall Alejo (St. Rose), Cole Garrett (Liberty), and Cameron Bye (Wichita State) held the Mountaineers off the scoreboard the rest of the way.

The Nighthawks visit Vermont on Friday night at Recreation Park.
