The Vermont Voltage is celebrating its 10th season in Vermont.
The Voltage made the move to Burlington High School for the 2009 season after spending its first nine seasons at the Colins Perley Complex in St. Albans and they have enjoyed a good season thus far in Burlington.
After dropping their first two games of the season, the Voltage have gone unbeaten over the past seven matches, achieving an overall record of 6-2-1.
The Voltage is coming off of a 2-0 home victory over the FC Boston Immigrants this past Saturday. The club has played to a home record of 4-1 and looks to continue its success at Burlington High School this Saturday.
Swynenberg on Vermont Roster
Minor League baseball pitcher Matt Swynenberg has been promoted to Vermont from the Gulf Coast League Nationals and will start for the Lake Monsters tonight at Aberdeen, the team announced Monday.
Swynenberg was selected in the 28th round of the 2009 draft out of Black Hawk College, where he went 7-3 with a 3.02 ERA and 66 strikeouts in 53 innings during the 2009 season. The right-hander was 0-1 with a 1.80 ERA in three games (one start) for the Gulf Coast League Nationals. In 10 innings, he allowed two runs on nine hits with five walks and 10 strikeouts.
Two of Three
The Vermont Lake Monsters traveled to Aberdeen, Md., last weekend where they won two games of the three game set against the hometown Iron Birds. With the series win the Lake Monsters improved to 15-14 on the year, and were tied for second in the Stedlar Division with the Lowell Spinners, just two games behind the first place Oneonta Tigers.
Evan Bronson tossed four scoreless innings of relief for the victory and Dani Arias' tie-breaking sacrifice fly in the ninth inning gave the Vermont Lake Monsters a 6-5 victory over the Aberdeen Ironbirds in the series opener last Friday night at Ripken Stadium.
