PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- On a night when very little was working for the American Legion Post 68 baseball team, a little patience went a long way for Jack Cooney.   Cooney crushed a base hit into left center with two out in the bottom of the eighth Monday to score Izaiya Mestre and give Pittsfield a 4-3 win over Aldenville and back-to-back Western Massachusetts championships.   “I was looking for a fastball,” Cooney said after the obligatory dousing with ice water. “He threw me a couple of curve balls to start me off. I laid off those, and I got up in the count. I knew he was going to give me a fastball, so I just sat back on it and tried not to be too

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- The American Legion Post 68 baseball team did not hit the cover off the ball on Sunday.   But Izaiya Mestre had things covered.   Mestre struck out 15 and allowed just four hits in a complete-game, 4-0, win over Northampton Post 28 that kept Pittsfield unbeaten in the Western Massachusetts tournament.   Post 68, which scored 36 runs in its first wins of the double-elimination tourney, was held to a tourney low offensive production on Sunday at Clapp Park. Pittsfield had just one extra-base hit, and Patrick Colvin’s two-out double did not lead to a run.   Pittsfield used stolen bases, bunts and, of course, pitching to eliminate Post

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- After winning its last two American Legion playoff games by a combined 26-0, Post 68 got off to a bit of a slow start on Friday against Westfield Post 124.   The visitors earned a leadoff walk on four pitches, stole second and followed with a single against Post 68 starter Ethan Forfa.   The message from Forfa’s former Wahconah teammate and current batterymate Matt Schneider: We’ve got this.   “He threw six straight balls to start, so I just told him, ‘Hit your spot. You’ve got a great offense behind you and a great defense, so just hit your spots,’ “ Schneider said.   Schneider definitely backed up his words
