Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | Aug 3, 2014

Anthony Maldonado had two hits and two RBIs, Korey Perry tripled and scored, and Costello had a nice day at the plate with two hits, two walks, two runs and an RBI.

Costello also picked up the win as the starting pitcher. He went all seven innings and scattered four hits and three walks. He had just one strikeout, playing to contact and trusting his defense.
