Leitch, Greylock defeat Wahconah in baseball


HINSDALE -- Another day, another well-rounded win for the Mount Greylock baseball team.

Andrew Leitch threw a four-hitter and smacked a home run to lead the Mounties to a 13-0 win over Wahconah Regional at the Duquette Sports Academy on Friday.

"They're the most complete team I've seen this year, in two years, actually," said Wahconah coach Jared Shannon. "They are solid one through nine. They play great defense. They have great pitching. They're a great team."

Leitch cracked his home run in the second, which technically was the game-winner. Brother Eric Leitch, Ben Alley and Ed Dufur all had doubles, and Sean Houston had two hits.

Matt Schneider had a double for the Warriors.

Putnam 11, McCann 3

SPRINGFIELD -- A day after scoring nine runs in the first inning, the Hornets yielded nine over the first two innings to Putnam.

Joe Gwozdz's start lasted just three innings for McCann. He gave up seven hits and four walks with one strikeout as Putnam quickly grew its lead.

"Starting pitcher just didnt have his stuff today," coach Pat Ryan said. "It really comes down to pitching. If your pitcher comes out strong, a bunch of hits coming together is OK. Once he starts walking kids and we're making errors, it hurts."

PITTSFIELD -- The Generals smacked 18 hits and a strong pitching effort from Bob New to beat the Hurricanes.

"We spread it around today," said Pittsfield coach Bob Moynihan. "We've been hitting the ball pretty well, but lately it's been at people. Today we hit more line drives. It's harder to catch line drives."

Chad Shade had four hits, including a double, for the winners. Kevin Donati, Justin Hopkins and Austin O'Neill all had three hits. O'Neill had a double and a triple.

Sean Ryan-Kut had two hits for Hoosac.
