A few misfires for Starfires

PITTSFIELD – The Westfield Starfires may have gassed up their engines, but it’s taking a little bit of time to get their wings under them.
Westfield dropped their latest effort as the Pittsfield Suns rallied past the Starfires 4-2 Sunday at Wahconah Park.
Westfield scored one run in each of the third and fourth innings, but Pittsfield (4-0) bounced back with four unanswered runs, two each in consecutive innings (5th, 6th) to pull away. The Starfires fell to 0-4.
It was the second win for Pittsfield over Westfield in three days. The Starfires lost to the Suns in their season opener Friday night at Bullens Field.
On Sunday, Tommy Quinn (2 doubles, RBI), Elijah Dale (double, run), and Andrew Ciacciarelli (RBI) each went 2-for-4 to lead Pittsfield. Christian Walsh also doubled.
Jackson Petersen picked up the lone multi-hit game for Westfield, going 2-for-4 with a double, home run, run scored and RBI. Jeff Boggess doubled and had two RBIs.
Westfield relievers Joshua Jezouit and Ryan Langford each tossed two scoreless innings, striking out two and three batters, respectively.
Westfield dropped a double header Saturday, losing a pair to the Bristol Blues, 13-6 and 5-2. The Starfires will look for a bit of redemption – and their first victory – when they host the Pittsfield Suns Monday at Bullens Field. Game time is 6:30 p.m.
