Mount Greylock 7, Lenox 5
WILLIAMSTOWN — A five-run sixth inning helped host Mount Greylock shake off some early lethargy, and win its fifth straight game.
"Lenox was playing a great game and their hitters were just putting the ball in play and we just could not get things going. Jamo [Jameson Bayliss] started for us and was pitching ok but we just were not giving him much run support," Greylock coach Rick Paris wrote in an email. "In the sixth we finally started putting things together and got some runs across the board.
An RBI single by Landen Jamula plated Jack Cangelosi with the go-ahead run, and Dylen Harrison followed with a two-run single to left.
That made a winner out of Bayliss, who went 5 1/3 innings. He gave up four runs, two earned, on six hits. Michael Butler, the second Lenox pitcher, took the loss. In two-thirds of an inning, he gave up four runs but only one was earned.
Jamula was 2 for 4 with two RBI for Greylock (10-2), while Cliff Flynn was 3 for 4 with two runs scored and two RBI for Lenox (3-7).
