Commodores Down Eagles

The Vergennes Commodores put together a six run sixth inning to knock off the Mount Abraham Eagles 9-4 in a clash of Addison County rivals last Saturday at Bristol in high school baseball action. Cam Cutler, who led the Commodores offense with three hits, smashed a grand slam in that six run sixth. J.C. Dugan and Hans Westenfeld had good games at the plate for Vergennes, each slapping out a pair of hits. Adam Flynn started for Vergennes but gave way to Cutler, who picked up the win by pitching three innings of hitless ball. The Commodores improved to 2-1 with the win.
