Friday's high schools: Greylock baseball beats Taconic; Wahconah, Lee get girls lacrosse wins


PITTSFIELD -- It was a rough Friday afternoon for the Taconic baseball team and Mount Greylock took full advantage.

Ryan Wadsworth's two-run single broke a second-inning tie and the visiting Mounties beat the Braves 6-4 in a game played at Clapp Park.

The Braves committed six errors in the game and stranded seven runners. Taconic left the bases loaded in the fifth inning and runners in scoring position in the sixth.

"Not playing good defense and leaving guys on is a recipe for getting a loss," said Taconic coach Kevin Stannard.

Wadsworth and Nick DiSanti each had two hits for Greylock. Mitch Clary had two hits for Taconic.

The big hit in the third was Nick Pow's two-run single.

"They hit the hell out of the ball and we didn't," Lenox coach Kevin Downer said. "They certainly bounced back."
