North Adams Babe Ruth Wins Convincingly

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires.com Sports
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- Eight was more than enough for North Adams' Hayden Bird on Thursday night.
The Drury High School rising sophomore pitched a complete-game four-hitter in leading the North Adams 15-year-old Babe Ruth All-Stars to an 8-0 win over Joe Schwartz in state tournament play at Alcombright Field.
North Adams improved to 1-1 in pool play with one game left -- Saturday afternoon on the road against Worcester's West Side.
On Thursday, North Adams was in a must-win situation after losing, 3-0, in its tournament opener two nights earlier.
Coach Dan Harrison said there was no doubt in his mind who would take the hill against Joe Schwartz.
"Pretty much after that loss Tuesday night, as soon as that game ended, I had in my mind that he was my guy," Harrison said of Bird. "He's been solid for me all year.
"He has a way of finding ways to get outs. he's done that all year. He's our go-to guy."
Bird struck out three, walked three and left at least one runner on base in each inning.
He was spotted a big lead after North Adams' offense, which had just one infield hit in Tuesday's loss, scored four runs in the bottom of the first on Thursday.
McCann Tech's Collin Racette hit an RBI double to drive in Brandon Condon with the game's first run, and Connor Guyette drove in two runs with a single up the middle in the rally.
"These guys bounced back after Tuesday, which was nice to see," Harrison said. "The middle of the lineup was pretty solid tonight."
It stayed 4-0 until the fifth, when Racette drilled his second double of the game and scored his second run on Thaylen Harrison's double to right. Harrison moved up on a ground ball and scored on a passed ball to make it 6-0.
In the sixth, North Adams scored two more without the use of a hit. Three walks, a couple of wild pitches and a delayed double steal with men on first and third did the damage.
The most serious trouble for Bird came in the fourth, when the visitors loaded the bases with two out thanks to a couple of hit batters and North Adams' only error of the game.
But catcher Charlie Bohl fielded a swinging bunt and threw to first to end the threat.
Bohl also caught a runner stealing second -- one of many solid defensive plays for North Adams on the night.
"We played great defense Tuesday night, too," Dan Harrison said. "That's kind of been our strength over the years.
"This team has been together a good seven years now, and they've definitely always been solid. If we keep the mistakes to a minimum, we should do well in this tournament."

Dalton Little Leaguers Knock Off Adams-Cheshire

ADAMS, Mass. -- Brandon Roughley hit a two-run home run and a double to lead the Dalton 11- and 12-year-old All-Stars to a 13-0 win over Adams-Cheshire in the District 1 tournament on Wednesday evening.
Chad Howes pitched four innings of shutout ball before leaving the game to save himself for future games this week as Dalton stayed alive in the double-elimination tournament and ended Adams-Cheshire's run.
Brandon's brother Auggie hit a three-run homer in the first inning to get Dalton a lead, and it never looked back.
Nate Zink and Kevin Huban each had two hits for Dalton, who moves on to play Pittsfield North on Thursday in a double-header that features Pittsfield South and Great Barrington in the winners' bracket.
Zach Swistak broke up Dalton's no-hit bid with a single in the fifth inning.

Berkshire Americans Battle, Fall Short

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires.com Sports
ADAMS, Mass. -- After falling behind by five runs early, the Berkshire Americans high school all-star baseball team almost battled all the way back before suffering a 6-5 loss to the Adirondack Hawks on Wednesday night.
The Americans, who have players from five different Berkshire County high schools, fell to 8-4-2 in the Eastern New York Travel Baseball League.
But despite the loss, the Americans showed the kind of spirit that got them where they are.
"Overall, I'm happy with the attitude we had tonight," Berkshire coach Mike Gladu said. "Any time you spot a team a bunch of runs, you're going to battle from behind. And that's never an easy thing to do in a seven-inning game.
"I think the hitting was there. I think we threw the ball around a little bit."
Five Berkshire errors led to three unearned runs for the Hawks.
Another factor was early control issues for starting pitcher Isaiah Clark, who walked five in an inning and two thirds.
His Drury teammate Tyler Briggs came in from third base and went the rest of the way, allowing just one unearned run on four hits over 5.1 innings.
"He did great," Gladu said. "To come in in a situation on three days rest and throw 60-something pitches.
"I tell the pitchers, you've got to pitch to contact. When you have a good defense, you've got to make them work. When you don't pitch to contact, there's no defense for a base on balls."
It was 5-0 midway through the second when McCann Tech's Sean Davis singled to left for Berkshire's first base runner.
He moved up on a ground ball and an error and came home on an errant pickoff throw to make it a 5-1 game.
That same errant pickoff try got Briggs to second, and Hoosac Valley's Joey Buonemani reached when he was hit by a pitch. A ground ball moved both men into scoring position, Pittsfield High's Evan Bossio doubled to left to score two and get Berkshire within two runs.
Adirondack stretched its lead with an unearned run in the top of the third, but Briggs shut them down from there.
Meanwhile, Berkshire scratched out a run in the third and a run in the fourth.
In the third, Jake Tatro reached on an error and came home on a base hit by Kevin Donati.
In the fourth, Kyle Shade reached on an error, moved up on Bossio's sac bunt, went to third on a fielder's choice and scored on a wild pitch.
Berkshire will be home again on Saturday at Renfrew in a double-header at 11 a.m. The Americans will play more than 30 games by the end of July before heading to Myrtle Beach for a tournament next month.
