SHEFFIELD — There’s an old adage in sports that says, in effect, the team that makes fewer mistakes in a game will win. Wednesday afternoon, the Mt. Everett baseball team was not that group.
The Eagles fell to the Hoosac Valley Hurricanes 6-3 at home, dropping them to .500 on the season. Alex Zdziarski pitched six solid innings, but a three-run fourth for the Hurricanes would be too much for his team to overcome.
From the first inning, it was clear that the Eagles were going to have a rough day in the field.
After a leadoff single by Henry Sniezek, the Hurricanes attempted to put a bunt play on. Despite the batter whiffing, Sniezek trotted toward second base, where he was dead to rights. But a high throw from Jack Carpenter sailed into the outfield, as Hoosac caught a break.
Then, a routine ground ball to third base was thrown off-target by Pat Silk, allowing the Hurricanes to take an early lead.
