A rough first inning did the Hilltown Hardwood Flooring West County Warriors in on Tuesday, as the team allowed six runs in the first frame en route to an 8-6 loss to Northampton in Pioneer Valley Youth Baseball League Mickey Mantle action in Buckland. 

Despite getting down early, West County refused to quit, scoring one run in the second and two in the third to get them back in the game. 

“There were difficult plays and balls that were just out of our reach,” Mohawk coach John Finck said. “We let the flood gates open but there’s no quit in this team.”

Trailing by four heading into the bottom of the seventh, Mohawk got a rally going. 

Liam O'Donnell reached on an error, and Shawn Davenport added a hit to put two runners on. A passed ball allowed both to advance to second and third. 

Reuben Bassett hit a sacrifice fly to left field to bring O’Donnell home, and Jared Jacobs later brought Davenport in to make it a two-run game, but that was as close as the Warriors would come. 

Anthony Moffatt had a hit and pitched two innings, striking out three while Jacobs pitched the final two innings, recording one strikeout. Cam Lococo had a hit and an RBI while pitching the first three innings, striking out five.
