After claiming nine victories in 10 days, the Upper Valley Nighthawks’ series of consecutive wins has come to an end.
The visiting Winnipesaukee Muskrats handily defeated the Nighthawks, 7-3, on Wednesday night at Maxfield Sports Complex. Despite the loss, the team is looking ahead to its game with the Valley Blue Sox, which will be played at 6:30 tonight at Mackenzie Stadium in Holyoke, Mass. It should be a good one — the Nighthawks and the Blue Sox are the top two teams in the New England Collegiate Baseball League’s Northern Division, and they’re both coming off win streaks (the Blue Sox have won their last seven games).
