Roundup/Area Notes: Pittsfield Suns drop sixth consecutive contest

BROCKTON — Kyle Simon went 3 for 4 with three extra-base hits — a double, a triple and a home run — for the Brockton Rox in the team's 8-3 victory over the Pittsfield Suns on Saturday afternoon.

The loss is Pittsfield's sixth straight since an 8-0 start to the season.

Kevin Donati went 2 for 4 with two RBI for the Suns, but Brockton's 5-0 lead through two innings and 8-0 advantage through six frames was more than enough.

The team's were set to play again in the evening as part of a day/night doubleheader, with the latter contest ending after print deadline.
