Mestre, Taconic Hold on to Edge Wahconah
DALTON, Mass. -- Izaiya Mestre allowed no earned runs in seven innings of work on the mound and drove in a pair of runs at the plate Friday to lead the Taconic baseball team to a 4-3 win over Wahconah.
Brett Murphy belted a two-run single, and Mestre hit a two-run double in the top of the first to stake Taconic to a 4-0 lead.
But that was all that the combination of Wahconah pitchers Will Genaway and Ethan Forfa allowed as they combined to strike out five and hold unbeaten Taconic off the scoreboard for six innings.
Wahconah nearly came all the way back when Forfa homered to left to bring home Genaway and Bob Archambault, making it 4-3, in the bottom of the sixth.
But in the seventh, after Austin Cancilla led off with a single, Mestre retired the next three hitters in order to finish the game.
Taconic (13-0) goes to Joe Wolfe Field in North Adams to face Drury on Monday afternoon.
Wahconah (10-4) will be at Joe Wolfe that night to face McCann Tech.
