The Fayetteville-Perry Rockets entered Wednesday’s contest unbeaten in Southern Hills Athletic Conference play, but their four-game winning streak came to an end with a 12-10 loss to the North Adams Green Devils.
In a game that went back and forth for seven innings and was tied at 10 after the bottom of the sixth, the Green Devils were able to bring home two runs in the top of the seventh inning and hold the Rockets run-less in the bottom of the frame to claim the victory.
The Rockets fell to an overall record of 4-3 and a SHAC record of 4-1 with Wednesday’s loss.
