Railroaders baseball split four game road trip

An opportunistic Warrensburg team took advantage of several Whitehall errors to pull out a dramatic 3-2 win on Monday evening.

Joe Brunelle drove in the winning run on a double with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning as the Burgers won their sixth game of the season.

The Railroaders got a good performance out of Dillon Griffin, who allowed five hits in seven innings but Whitehall couldn’t get out of its own way, committing six errors in the game.

After exchanging zeros through the first two innings, Whitehall jumped out to a 1-0 lead on Justin Hoagland’s RBI triple. Warrensburg immediately answered back, tying the score in the bottom of the third inning.

Whitehall would go back ahead in the fifth inning on Griffin’s RBI double but the Burgers again answered back, tying the score in the bottom of the inning.

Last Friday, it was Whitehall that registered a comeback win.

The Railroaders clawed their way back from an early 4-0 deficit to defeat Argyle 8-4.

Cary Rehm picked up his second win of the season and had four hits and Paxton DeLorme went 2 for 3 with an RBI and two runs scored.

The Scots jumped on Rehm early, scoring four runs in the first inning, but the Whitehall pitcher settled down after that, blanking Argyle the rest of the way.

Whitehall scored two runs in the third inning and two more in the fourth to tie the game at 4-4.

In the fifth inning, Tyler Thomas hit a two-out, two-run double to put Whitehall ahead for good.

The Railroaders would score twice more in the inning to take an 8-4 lead as Whitehall held on for its fifth win of the season. 

The Railroaders matched their season high for runs scored in a game, defeating Hartford 14-2 last Wednesday.

Rehm hit a bases-loaded double in the fifth inning as the Railroaders scored 10 runs in the frame to break open what was a close game.

Rehm finished the game 3 for 4 with two doubles and five RBIs and Hoagland pitched a complete game to pick up his second win of the season. He also went 3 for 4 at the plate and helped his own cause, scoring four wins.

Whitehall jumped out to an early lead, scoring two runs in the first inning and extended that lead to 3-0 with a run in the third inning.

Hartford answered back, scoring a run in the fourth inning and cut the lead to a single run in the fifth inning.

Clinging to a narrow 3-2 lead, Whitehall loaded the bases in the bottom of the frame and Rehm came up and drove a double into the outfield to start a huge inning for Whitehall.

The Railroaders added another run in the sixth inning and Hoagland shut the door on Hartford’s offense.

The win came a day after Whitehall was shut out by league-leading Fort Ann.

Joe Foran limited the Railroaders to one hit and fanned 14 in 9-0 complete game shutout.

It was a banner day for Foran who broke the Section II career hits record and drove in a run to tie the New York State all-time RBI record.

George Lehoisky hit a homerun and drove in RBIs in the game.

Fort Ann jumped out to an early lead scoring a run in the first inning and adding two more in the second to take a 3-0.

Griffin was able to hold the Cardinals powerful lineup in check, pitching a scoreless third and fourth innings. But Fort Ann scored twice in the fifth inning and four times in the sixth inning and Foran did the rest, shutting Whitehall’s offense down.

Whitehall plays at Salem tomorrow before returning home for games against North Warren and Fort Edward on Monday and Wednesday.

At 5-4 in the Adirondack League, Whitehall needs to finish at least 3-4 if it hopes to qualify for postseason play.
