Railroaders Take Down Generals

Adirondack League contenders beware. The defending champions are finding their groove. Whitehall collected their biggest win of the year, taking down previously unbeaten Salem 6-3 on Friday afternoon.

The Railroaders lost all but three starters from a squad that had been dominant the last few years. After three one-run losses, Whitehall has won two straight, but none bigger than topping a General’s squad who had just knocked Granville from the unbeaten ranks.

The game was tied 2-2 after two innings of play. Salem took a 3-2 lead in the third, but a four spot in the fourth put Whitehall in control, and Khloe Paddock shut down the Generals from there.

Whitehall only managed a trio of hits, but took advantage of nine Salem walks. Marissa Eggleston was 2 for 4 with two RBIs for the Railroaders. Mia Waters added a hit and an RBI. Paddock also drove in a pair of runs.

Paddock scattered six hits while striking out five and walking just one.

Emma Blondin played a key role for the Cardinals. Blondin delivered a two-run home run in the seventh to give the Cardinals the victory. Blondin also earned the win in the circle, yielding six hits while striking out seven.

Brooke Wright blasted a triple for Fort Ann. Jadyn Mitchell along with Blondin finished with two hits. Blondin drove in three runs. Mitchell tripled and chipped in an RBI.
