Marcus Forrester and the Suns couldn't get ahold of Brockton in a loss Saturday at Wahconah Park.

PITTSFIELD — One bad inning spoiled Saturday night for the Pittsfield Suns.

Nine Brockton hitters came to the plate in the first inning, scoring five runs on six hits — three of them infield base hits — and that was more than enough for the Rox. The Suns played the visitors even the rest of the way, but the damage was done in a 6-2 win for Brockton at Wahconah Park.
