WOONSOCKET --- Mount St. Charles got a â€˜Dâ€™ for its defense on Thursday afternoon.
The Mounties committed a half dozen errors in its Division I crossover showdown with North Kingstown, and while those miscues led to only two unearned runs, that turned out to be the difference in the visiting Skippersâ€™ 7-5 victory that gave the Division I-South leaders their sixth straight win.
This game was a neat back-and-forth affair until the Skippers (8-1) rallied for three runs in the top of the fifth inning to claim their two-run lead.
