BRUSHTON – Playing on back-to-back nights didnt seem to bother the Brushton-Moira varsity baseball team.
The Panthers, coming off a two-game sweep of the St. Lawrence Central Larries on Thursday, handed Northern Athletic Conference East Division front-running Madrid-Waddington its first setback of the season 7-3 on Friday. The win moves the BMC boys into the divisions top spot with a 6-1 record – with one game in limbo, as the Panthers and Norwood-Norfolk Flyers had the second game of their doubleheader suspended on Monday, tied after five innings. The loss drops the Yellowjackets to 5-1 in league play.
In other East Divison action from Friday, St. Regis Falls picked up its first win of the season 12-4 at the expense of the Chateaugay BulldogsSwinging hot bats
In picking up the victory on the hill, Adam Martin limited the Yellowjackets to just one hit – a two-run double off the bat of Aaron Armstrong. M-W starter Zach Brock was toughed for 13 BMC hits – six for extra bases.
Kennedy paced the BMC boys with a 3-for-3 game with a double and a pair of RBIs. Alex Burnett had two hits, both triples.
