No game scheduled.
NEW BRITAIN 3, READING 2 IN NEW BRITAIN
Batting stars: Mike Kvasnicka was 2-for-4 with a double, scoring once and driving in one. Kyle Knudson was 2-for-3 with a run.

The game: Reading led 1-0 after three, but in the fifth New Britain scored all three of their runs. A walk and a single put two on with one out, Kvasnicka doubled in a run to tie it, an error brought home the go-ahead run, and a sacrifice fly plated an insurance run. They needed it because Collier tripled home a run for the Fightin Phils in the seventh. That obviously put the tying run on third, but he did not score and Reading did not get a man on base after that.

Hicks singled in a run, Harrison singled in another, Gonzales doubled home two, and Niko Goodrum and Aderlin Mejia each contributed an RBI double.

In the second, Christian Carmichael had an RBI double and Zimmerman homered as part of a three-run inning that put Clinton up 3-2.
