Bulldogs topped by BBA in BABL finals

DALTON — For most of the Berkshire Adult Baseball League season, the Lenox Bulldogs scuffled. Despite starting the season 1-5, Lenox entered Sunday morning just one win away from claiming its first championship in the team’s history.

It was not to be, as the Bulldogs dropped games two and three of the BABL championship series 1-0 and 11-1 to BBA, who hoisted the trophy for the second time and the first since 2016.

Due to the top seeds in both BABL divisions calling the Dalton American Legion home, game one was played in Lenox, where the Bulldogs came from behind thanks to a home run in the seventh inning by Michael Downer to tie the game, then earned a 7-6 win in nine innings to bring them once win away from winning the championship.

Standing between Lenox and the crown was BBA pitcher Joe Bateman, who had not allowed an earned run in two regular season starts against the Bulldogs.

Bateman was dominant once again, holding Lenox to just a single hit through the first six innings and maintaining a one-run lead for BBA that Bateman got himself with an RBI single to left field.
