Whitehall’s baseball team learned it’s not how you start but how you finish.

Unfortunately the Railroaders started well but finished poorly in their season opener Monday night in Whitehall.

After bursting out of the gates with four runs in the first inning, Whitehall was held to a single run the rest of the way in a lopsided 19-5 loss to Lake George.

Craig Keenan had four hits in the game, while Connor McCoy and Brandon Matthews each knocked in three RBI.

Julian Barber had two doubles for Whitehall and freshman Tyler Thomas had a two-run double in his first varsity at-bat.

The Railroaders jumped all over McCoy, one of the Adirondack League’s best pitchers, in the first inning.

Carl Rehm plated Justin Hoagland with a single to make it 1-0 and Barber drove in the Railroaders’ second run on a double down the right field line. Tyler Thomas made it 4-0 on a sinking line drive to left field.

Trailing 5-1 entering the fourth inning, Lake George scored five runs to take a 6-5 lead and blew the game open with eight runs in the sixth inning.

The schedule doesn’t get any easier for Whitehall as they travel to Fort Ann later this evening. They host Corinth and Salem on Monday and Wednesday of next week.
