GRANVILLE — It wasn’t exactly a work of art, but Granville will take the win.

The Golden Horde survived eight errors to beat Lake George 9-8 in an Adirondack League baseball game on Tuesday. Granville is unbeaten in four games, including wins over the Warriors and Fort Ann, two teams that are often contenders.

Jarett Williams picked up the win, holding Lake George to three hits over five innings. He walked one, struck out six and allowed one earned run with 86 pitches.

“We made him work too hard,” coach Corey Burton said. “Eight errors is atrocious. He threw very well, kept it down in the zone, got a lot of first-pitch strikes.”

Granville scored four runs in the first inning and five more over the fourth and fifth. Nick Sumner went 2 for 4 and Cole Haines drove in two runs.

The Horde is coming off a 10-6 season and lost two seniors from that team.

“We’re playing as a team,” Burton said. “I think the camaraderie built a little quicker than anticipated. ... This is a tough league, with four or five tough teams. If we play our game, we can be good if we do the right things.”

Lake George (2-1) got two hits from Mike Johnson and Cole Clark.
