Big sixth inning sparks baseball team to 17-8 win

A big sixth-inning rally sparked Whitehall’s baseball team to a come-from-behind victory over Fort Edward on Monday night.

Trailing 8-1 after four innings of play, Whitehall scored three runs in the fifth and 10 runs in sixth on their way to a 17-8 victory.

Codie Bascue led the charge offensively, going 2 for 4 at the dish with a pair of RBIs and two runs scored. Brett Christian and Dylan Griffin each recorded two hits and Carl Rehm had a double for Whitehall, which improve to 2-1 on the young season.

Christian, who took the hill for the Railroaders, picked up his second win on the season.

It took several innings for Whitehall’s bats to come alive. The Forts held the Railroaders scoreless for the first three innings as the built a 2-0 lead.

Whitehall finally managed to push a run across the plate in the fourth inning, but Fort Edward responded by scoring six runs in the bottom half of the frame for an 8-1 lead.

The inning seemed to light a fire under Whitehall, as the team scored 16 runs in the final three innings while holding Fort Edward scoreless the rest of the way.

The lone negative in an otherwise strong performance were the five errors committed by Whitehall.

The Railroaders will travel to Hartford on Friday before hosting Argyle on Monday evening.
