SPRINGFIELD -- A day after scoring nine runs in the first inning, the Hornets yielded nine over the first two innings to Putnam. They couldn’t climb their way out of the big hole and lost, 11-3.
Joe Gwozdz’s start lasted just three innings for McCann. He gave up seven hits and four walks with one strikeout as Putnam quickly grew its lead.
"Starting pitcher just didn’t have his stuff today," coach Pat Ryan said. "It really comes down to pitching. If your pitcher comes out strong, a bunch of hits coming together is OK. Once he starts walking kids and we’re making errors, it hurts."
The Hornets made five errors in the field to aid Putnam.
Gwozdz did have the Hornets’ lone extra-base hit, a double.
