Troy, NY - The Vermont Lake Monsters took the opener of their quick two-game series with the Tri-City ValleyCats Wednesday, 3-1, at Joe Bruno Stadium.
In his return to the Capital Region, Schenectady's J.P. Sportman went 1-for-4 with a single as the No. 3 hitter in the Vermont line-up. Dozens of his friends and family members watched from the first base stands, just a long fly ball from La Salle Institute where he graduated in 2010.
The ValleyCats and Lake Monsters will wrap up their series Thursday night at The Joe.
