iBerkshires.com SportsPrint Story | Email Story
LEOMINSTER, Mass. -- David Wildgoose turned a double play with nobody out in the bottom of the sixth to preserve a 2-0 win for the Pittsfield Little League American Division 10-12 All-Stars on Thursday in the sectional tournament.
 
Second baseman Wildgoose snared a line drive up the middle with the bases loaded and stepped on the bag to leave runners at the corners.
 
"That changed the whole outlook of that inning," Pittsfield Americans coach Matt Stracuzzi said.
 
Reliver Cam Harrington got the final out on a groundball to Wildgoose to send his team home with a 1-0 record in pool play.
 
Jason Codey earned the win on the mound, going 4-1/3 innings and allowing just two hits before running up against a 50-pitch limit.
 
Simon Mele finished the fifth on the hill and started the sixth before Harrington came in to get the save.
 
Pittsfield jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first.
 
Jack Abel led off with a base hit and moved up on an error before scoring on a single by Jack Reed.
 
In the third, Mele hit a two-out double to the left-center gap and scored on Reed's second RBI single of the night.
 
The Americans, who got seven hits and committed no errors in the win, are home on Friday at 5:30 against Agawam at Deming Park.
