Manchester legion splits Sunday double header

MANCHESTER - Manchester Union Underground split its double header with Bellows Falls Post 37 on Sunday. In game one, Will Addington drew the start for Manchester. The right hander pitched four and two thirds innings, but did not get the help he needed from his defense. 

Addington allowed eight runs on the mound, though only one was earned as Manchester's defense struggled to make plays. In total, Manchester had four errors in its 8-7 loss. 

In the second game, Manchester shored up its defense, not committing a single error in its 12-2 victory. Jack and Joey McCoy split time on the mound in the victory, which was fueled by a seven-run second inning. 

Trevor Greene stepped into the batter's box with the bases loaded and two outs in the inning and cleared the bases with a triple, providing the big hit.
