A five-run second inning was more than enough for the Fairfield Lions baseball team to get the win over North Adams on Tuesday night en route to an 8-0 victory to give the team their eighth win on the season.

Fairfield Lions Varsity scored in the second on a fielder’s choice, a two-run single by Cody Gragg, an RBI single by Klay Walker, and an RBI single by Mitchell Rose.

Fairfield added two more runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and then capped off their scoring in the sixth scoring a single run to bring them to their eight run total.

Hunter Dixon went all seven innings in the win throwing just 86 pitches. He gave up just three hits in those seven innings and tallied six strikeouts while walking two.

Mitch Rose led the Lions at the plate with three hits and two RBI’s. Cody Gragg and Hunter Dixon each had two hits and Austin Setty, Klay Walker, Sam Buddelmeyer, Tucker Ayers and Mason Cain all had one hit a piece.

“We’ve had two good games in a row with Manchester last night and North Adams tonight,” said Head Coach Tony Haley after the game. “Both those games were also well pitched games. We’ve been kind of struggling hitting-wise. We’re just not getting the big hit. Tonight the guys hit the ball real well and we had a couple doubles. We ran the bases well as well. Tonight was just a really good team effort.”
