Dukes Lose To Westerners 14-12

07:27AM / Saturday, June 16, 2007

Pittsfield Dukes continued a losing streak Friday night at home.
Pittsfield – The Dukes scored in the bottom of the first, taking only their second lead of the season, but it would not last long as the Westerners pounded out 12 runs 14 hits at Wahconah Park.

Yadiel Lanzo (Keystone College) got the ball for the Dukes and struggled as he lasted only three innings, giving up four runs on four hits, he walked one and struck out two. He did not factor in the decision as Jack Bender (Georgetown University) struggled to find his control. Bender allowed five runs in just two-thirds of an inning, walking two and striking two out, and failed to demonstrate command of many of his pitches. He was saddled with his first loss of the season.

Offensively the Dukes had their best output of the season putting up seven runs on 10 hits, scoring in five different innings.

The Dukes had what appeared to be a rally going in the bottom of the fourth when Nelson Gomez (Keystone College) lined a double to the base of the wall in leftfield, and was followed by another wall shot by Chester Wilson (Southern Utah University), plating Gomez and cutting the Danbury lead to 9-4.

Phil Cerreto(Longwood University)lined and RBI single into right field and the Dukes were in business; two runs across, a runner on first, and no outs.

The next batter was Jeff Rustico (American International College) drilled the first offering from Danbury starter Doug Hurn (Oklahoma Baptist) right back to the right handed hurler. Hurn extended his glove towards the third base line, snagging Rustico’s drive and turning to first where he flipped on to double up Cerreto and kill the Dukes’ rally in its tracks.

Making a solid appearance out of the Dukes’ bullpen was lefthander Ryan Watson (Harvard University). In three and a third innings worked, Watson did not give up a run on two hits, struck out three and walked just one. In his only other appearance this season Watson did not record an out and allowed one earned run.

The Dukes will be back at Wahconah Park Sunday night as they search for the elusive first win against the Manchester Silkworms at 7 p.m..

Season tickets for the Dukes are still available. Tickets can be purchased online at www.pittsfielddukes.com or by calling (413) 447-DUKE.
