Blanchard, Carpenter Power Sheffield Legion to Western Mass Title

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires.com Sports
SHEFFIELD, Mass. --  A pair of Jacks handed Sheffield Post 340 a Western Massachusetts title on Thursday night.
 
Jackson Blanchard and Jack Carpenter combined to go 6-for-8 with two triples, two doubles and five runs scored as Sheffield’s Junior American Legion Baseball team beat East Longmeadow Post 293, 9-2, to claim the sectional crown and a berth in the state championship tournament that starts Saturday at Spec Pond in Wilbraham.
 
Luke Patella and Carpenter split time on the mound, striking out four and scattering four hits.
 
In every respect, it was a 180-degree turnaround from the teams’ meeting on Wednesday, a 15-0 East Longmeadow win that forced them to play an “if necessary” game to conclude the double-elimination tourney.
