DALTON — Entering the final weekend of regular season play, the Great Barrington Millers had already locked up a playoff spot. But if it wanted to avoid a first round matchup with league-leading BBA, Great Barrington would have to knock them off Sunday in Dalton.
Unfortunately for the Millers, they fell 2-1, dropping them to fourth place in the BABL, which is still good enough to claim the final slot in the league’s postseason, which begins Saturday.
On the mound for Great Barrington was right-hander Chris Walker, making his seventh pitching appearance of the season. The pressure was on, as Great Barrington was missing a large chunk of its roster, including run-producers such as Mike Markham and Spencer Cookson.
For the first couple innings Walker did that perfectly. But as his outing lengthened, he began to lose some control of his pitches.
“That’s my whole thing,” Walker joked after the game. “I always put myself in trouble.”
