Leitch, DiSanti Push Greylock Past St. Joe'sPITTSFIELD, Mass. — Two days after suffering a tough extra-inning loss to South Division rival Hoosac Valley, the Mount Greylock baseball team rebounded nicely with a 7-3 road win over Saint Joseph's.

Leitch also helped his own cause by hitting a two-run triple in the top of the fourth inning. Greylock (6-3) scored three times in the fourth before breaking out for four more runs in the fifth to open a commanding 7-1 lead.

Senior Billy Pulasky also had a good day at the plate for the visitors, batting 2-for-3 with a walk, two RBIs and two runs scored.
Jeremy Witt was charged with the loss for the Crusaders (3-8), allowing five earned runs on four hits and four walks in four innings of work.
