Tuesday, a struggling Windsor Yellow Jackets baseball team hosted the Bellows Falls Terriers.
The Terriers coming in at 8 and 4 were hoping to travel to Windsor and blow past the weaker 4 and 5 Yellow Jackets. In the fourth inning, Bellows falls did most of its damage scoring five runs that would give them an eight run lead.
Zac Streeter took the mound for the Terriers and pitched 6 and a third innings allowing five hits and two walks while striking out eight. Streeter would also hit two doubles and come across the plate twice during the game to help out his own effort.
Windsor was able to put some runs on the board when Streeter was taken out of the game by Bellows Falls head coach Bob Lockerby and replaced by Brady Illingsworth in an effort to keep his aces pitch count under 75 but Lockerby was forced to put Streeter back on the mound as Illingsworth struggled to find his command and walked five batters allowing four runs.
Streeter then ended the threat and would go on to pitch the last inning of the game. Final score, Bellows Falls 9, Windsor 4. Bellows Falls coach Lockerby and starting pitcher Streeter as well as Windsor’s head coach gave YCN their thoughts after the game.
Bellows Falls improves to 9 and 4 while Windsor falls to 4 and 6. Bellows Falls travels to take on Otter Valley on Friday while Windsor will play a make-up game at Woodstock Thursday.
