LEE, Mass. — Juniors Andrew and Eric Leitch were a formidable duo on the mound for the Mount Greylock baseball team on Wednesday, combining to give up just four hits in an 8-2 road win over Lee. 

Andrew pitched five scoreless innings, allowing just two hits with five strikeouts and only one walk to bring his record to 4-1 with a 1.38 ERA this season. Eric then finished the final two innings, giving up two earned runs on two hits while striking out three.

The two brothers also helped themselves at the plate. Andrew went 2 for 3 with two RBI and a solo home run in the fifth inning, while Eric, who leads the team with .457 batting average this season, had three hits in five at bats. Sean Houston’s second home run of the season, a three-run shot, helped the Mounties (8-4) open a 4-0 lead in the second inning. They would go on to add one run in the fourth and two more in the fifth, chasing Wildcats' starter Heamon Williams out of the game. 

Armani Ingegni hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning for Lee (4-9), accounting for all of the Wildcats' runs in the game. 

Greylock next hosts New Lebanon at 4 p.m. on Friday.
