Whitehall Uses Huge fifth inning to Rally Past Hartford

Often times in small school high school baseball on days when neithers team's ace pitcher is available it comes down to which team can piece togther enough success on the hill to get the job done. That was the case at Bob Wilkins Field in Hartford Tuesday as Whitehall rallied from an early 7-2 deficit to defeat Hartford-Fort Edward 17-12 in an Adirondack League contest.

Trailing 10-9 Whitehall exploded for eight runs in the fifth to take control and held off the TanaForts the rest of the game.

"That's what we are going to have to do when oue one is not throwing. We're going to have to piece together each game to make it work and hopefully outscore them," Whitehall coach Keith Redmond said.

Hartford-Fort Edward broke a 2-2 tie with five runs in the top of the third, but the Railroaders scored three of their own on the bottom of the frame to make it 7-5.

Down 17-10 the TanaForts scored a pair of runs in the top of the seventh, but Whitehall was able to shut the door.

Brandon Bakerian was 2 for 3 with three RBIs for the Railroaders, including a big triple in the decisive fifth. Landon Rozell was 2 for 3 with two RBIs. CJ Monty was 2 for 5 with three RBIs.

Rozell was granted the win with stellar relief work in the fifth. Tyler Brooks pitched the first three innings then came back on to pitch 1 1/3 in the in the sixth and seventh, striking out six.
