Post 124 Falls in Walk-Off

SPRINGFIELD – Westfield Post 124’s four-game winning streak ended in walk-off fashion at Springfield’s Forest Park Wednesday night at the hands of East Springfield Post 420.
Joe Adona’s sacrifice fly in the bottom half of the seventh inning capped off a tight ballgame and gave the squad made up mostly of Western Massachusetts Division 1 champion Cathedral High School players a big 3-2 win.
Westfield (8-2) became the last local team to acquire their second loss of the season, but jumped ahead 1-0 after two innings, thanks to an errant pick-off attempt, allowing Chris Riga, who tripled to start the rally, to score from third base.
Post 124 went up 2-1 late in the game, but a couple costly errors aided Post 420’s comeback.
The Whip City squad continues this current tough stretch of games Friday night against Greenfield at Hagan Field on the campus of Westfield State University.
