Seven innings wasn’t enough to decide a winner between the Greenfield Post 81 and Easthampton American Legion Senior teams on Wednesday. 

Tied 2-2 going into the fifth inning, neither team produced a run across the next three frames, leading to extras. Post 81 acted quickly in the top of the eighth, loading the bases before Shane Brussard singled to score Braeden Tsipenyuk.

Ben Werner shut Easthampton out in the bottom of the frame, with Post 81 earning a 3-2 victory in Easthampton. 

Hugh Cyhowski tossed the opening six innings for Greenfield, striking out seven and scattering four hits. Werner pitched the final two innings, didn’t allow a hit and struck out three. 

Brussard tallied two hits and an RBI while Cyhowski and Daniel Brussard each cracked two hits. Dylen Richardson had a hit and an RBI while Tsipenyuk and Ethan Mauthe hit safely for Post 81.

Greenfield (6-2) is off until Monday when it hosts East Springfield.
