LEE — A little seventh inning magic sent the Blue Devils past Lee 5-4 on Thursday afternoon.
Anthony Pettengill set the stage for the comeback with a two-run single in the top of the sixth inning, plating Ben Moulton and Nick Lescarbeau.
Trailing 4-3 in the top of the seventh with two outs, Moulton reached base on a walk and Amont David reached base on an error. The two would eventually reach home with the help of aggressive baserunning, pushing Drury into the lead.
Pettengill was responsible for Drury's first run of the game after reaching on an error in the fifth inning and picked up a win on the mound.
The Wildcats had a bit of two-out magic as well. Hayden Siok, Evan Heath and Lucas Bombardier worked their way around the bases in the third inning to give Lee the early 3-0 lead. Mike Naventi was responsible for the big hit, earning two runs batted in on a single.
Zach Bianco crossed the plate to score Lee's fourth run, which came in the fourth inning.
Monument Mountain 9, Mount Greylock 5
GREAT BARRINGTON — The Spartans showcased why there is no place like home, taking care of business with a 9-5 win over the Mounties Thursday afternoon.
Jayder Raifstanger continued his hot start to the season, going 3 for 4 with a double, two triples and plating three runs in the process.

McCann Tech 21, Gateway 1
HUNTINGTON — The Hornets won in a runaway on Thursday night, blasting Gateway in a five-inning mercy to improve to 2-1.
McCann manufactured three times in the first inning to set the stage, using a bunt single, pair of RBI groundouts and Omar Uqdah's next-level speed to get going.
Justin Chen, who went 3 for 4 out of the leadoff spot, scoring three times and driving in a pair, doubled and scored in the second. He also executed a suicide squeeze bunt as part of a three-run third to score Noah Debendetto.
The Hornets turned it into a blowout in the fifth, batting around twice with 19 hitters stepping into the box. Troy Wnuk had three at-bats in the frame, reaching base twice.
"This was a great chance for us to get a lot of guys into the game and see what they can do," wrote coach Bill Farrell in an email. "It was a solid showing, especially by the pitching staff. So far in three games this season, in 19 2/3 innings, the staff has combined for 29 Ks while allowing only four walks."
Colin Booth got the start for McCann, going two innings and striking out for to earn his first varsity win. Chase Vander-Woude, Nick Gilman and Seth Farnsworth each pitched a scoreless inning.
The Hornets finished with 13 hits, while Gateway committed seven errors and issued six walks.
