BROCTON - The Westfield Wolverines used a four-run fourth inning to fight off the Brocton Bulldogs, 6-5 Monday in a rain-shortened non-league high school baseball game.
It was a tune-up game for both teams as they prepare for the upcoming Section 6 playoffs.
"It was a good warmup for the playoffs," Brocton coach Terry Presto said. "We played Falconer earlier and we hit the ball well here today. Our pitchers threw decent. We put the ball in play so I was happy."
The one area Presto noted his team needs to work on is reducing the number of walks as the eventual game-winning run was scored on a bases-loaded walk.
The fourth inning was highlighted by a two-run single Dylan Kawski. John Coe added an RBI fielder's choice.
Brocton responded with three runs of its own in the fourth as Kyle Schrantz, Wade Austin and Devon Austin each had RBI singles.
The Bulldogs added two more runs in the sixth as Schrantz cracked a two-run base hit. He finished with two hits and three RBIs in the game.
Austin Alonge and Greg Best each had two hits for the Wolverines.
