A runner makes it home

Pittsfield Suns catcher Derek Paris is unable to tag out Brockton Rox's Peter Messervy at home during a game at Wahconah Park on Sunday. 

PITTSFIELD — So far this season, the Pittsfield Suns have hit the ball hard, pitched it well and fielded their positions. The problem, however, is that it’s been an issue to do all three together for long stretches.

Sunday afternoon, the Suns got a good last outing of the season by pitcher Freddy Mosier, but managed only seven singles and committed three errors as visiting Brockton beat the Suns 8-3.
