WILLIAMSTOWN -- Four wins, four double-figure run totals for the Mount Greylock baseball team. Their latest victory came Friday afternoon against Mount Everett, 11-2.
"I'm happy with the run production," said Greylock coach Steve Messina, who wants to see his team's batting average rise. "They got some timely hitting when they needed it."
The Mounties broke open a 4-0 game with five runs in the fourth inning. The Mounties had 10 hits, but nobody had more than one.
Andrew Leitch went the first five innings, and did not give up a run. He gave up two hits, struck out three and didn't walk anyone.

GRANBY -- The pitching woes continue for the Hornets. Starter T.J. Therrien couldn't make it out of the first inning, Tim DeBlois couldn't stop the bleeding and the Hornets lost to Granby, 19-3 in five innings.
"We just could not find the strike zone," coach Pat Ryan said. "Just throw strikes and we had a hard time doing it."
Therrien walked four and gave up six runs in just two-thirds of an inning and took the loss. DeBlois finished the first and lasted two more before he was relieved. At that point, Granby held a 19-0 lead.
Dillon Carr, who endured a long day behind the plate, was rewarded with an RBI triple for McCann.

GATEWAY -- The Hornets scored in three consecutive innings, but it wasn't enough to rally out of a deep hole and fell to Gateway, 12-5.
McCann yielded 10 runs in the second and third innings combined, and it proved too much to come back from.
"The second inning kind of was hurtful. It took air out of our sails," coach Kate Galli said. "We're still learning how to fight their way out of these things.
"Once we started putting some things together offensively, they did start rallying back into the game."
Jordan Prevey continued her hot hitting, slugging her third triple of the week. She also had three doubles this week. Jessica Sunn started and lasted 21 3 innings, taking the loss for McCann.

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -- The Ephs gave up a run in the first and then two more in the sixth and were unable to generate any offense themselves in a 3-0 loss to Middlebury.
Panther pitcher Elizabeth Morris held the Ephs in check, scattering six hits and striking out four. Mo Frank had two hits for Williams.
