Ryan LaPierre pitches the ball

Pittsfield’s own Ryan LaPierre threw two hitless innings for the Suns on Thursday night against Vermont. 

PITTSFIELD — The Pittsfield Suns have 11 games remaining in the Futures League's regular season. If the Suns are going to make a push for the fourth and final playoff spot, Wednesday night's win was a good way to start.

The Suns got six shutout innings from Pittsfield High School graduate Ryan LaPierre as the Suns beat Brockton 6-1 at Wahconah Park.
