Baseball routs Fort Edward, loses to Hadley-Luzerne, Fort Ann

One big swing of the bat was all it took for Hadley-Luzerne to defeat Whitehall Monday evening.

Matt Hay hit a grand slam in the third inning and Cory Sahiem limited the Railroadersl to three hits in seven innings as the Eagles defeated Whitehall 4-2.

Dillon Griffin scatter six hits in seven innings, recorded seven strikeouts and helped his own cause by scoring a run for Whitehall. Julian Barber added a double and scored the Railroaders’ other run.

“They got a few men on and then the kid stepped up and hit a grand slam. That’s all it takes,” head coach Jason Hoagland said.

Griffin pitched well, shutting out Hadley-Luzerne through the first two innings as the Railroaders got out to an early lead. But Hay’s homerun put the Eagles ahead and the Railroaders were never able to get their offense going.

It was the second straight game Whitehall’s offense struggled.

On Friday, Fort Ann’s George Lehoisky struck out 14 in a complete game 9-0 shutout on the Railroaders’ home field.

Whitehall stayed with Fort Ann through the first four innings but the Cardinals broke out for five runs in the fifth inning.

Tyler Mattison had three RBIs for Fort Ann and Joe Foran went 2 for 2.

Justin Hoagland was 3 for 3 with a double for Whitehall.

Whitehall’s offense had no problem against Fort Edward last Wednesday, as the team routes the Flying Forts 18-6.

The Railroaders scored 11 runs in the first two innings to sweep the season series against Fort Edward.

Julian Barber drove in two runs and scored four times and Paxton DeLorme went 3 for 4 at the plate with 3 RBIs and three runs scored. Dillon Griffin scattered nine hits over seven innings to pick even his record at 3-3 on the season.

Tyler Brockway hits a two-run homerun for the Forts.

DeLorme helped Whitehall get off to a fast start in the first inning, doubling down the left field line to put Whitehall ahead 2-0. He would later come around to score on a pass ball to extend the lead to three.

The Railroaders blew the game open in the second inning, scoring eight runs in the frame. They would add another run in third inning and a total of six more in the fifth and sixth innings.

Since a 1-3 start, Whitehall has gone 8-4 in their last 12 games to finish second in the Adirondack League East Division behind Fort Ann. At 9-7, the Railroaders have qualified for postseason play and will learn their Sectional opponent Monday.
