A player is congratulated by the team

A three-run seventh inning was the difference as the Pittsfield Suns defeated Westfield 7-3 on Thursday.

The Vermont Lake Monsters came into the old ballpark on Wahconah Street having lost only five of 28 games and were 10 1/2 games ahead of the Pittsfield Suns in the Futures League standings.
