Brockway added his team had a standout day in the field as well.
In the second inning, first baseman Haines made a diving catch on a popup in four territory.
Two innings later, Windsor’s Paige Rauch drew a leadoff walk against Baker. The next batter bunted, but Baker made a diving shoestring catch and doubled Rauch off of first.
Then in the sixth inning, with a runner on and one out, Windsor’s Alexa Cary hit a liner down the right field line that Emmalee Sloman gloved.
“It was a screamer down the right-field line,” Brockway said. “It was only fair by a couple of feet, but Emmalee made a fantastic catch with her arms stretched out.”
Added Brockway: “I think our defense has proven itself again. We’re making plays. We’re making routine plays and today we made some great plays against a very good Windsor team.”
Brockway said Baker seemed fresh Wednesday. The sophomore hadn’t thrown in three days.
“She was just feeling well and her curveball and rise ball were working well,” he said. “She hit her spots and kept Windsor hitters off balance.”
Cleaveland has had two hits against Starley in both meetings against the Black Knights this season.
The Yellowjackets, who are tied atop the East Division standings with Windsor, will host Owego today.
Cooperstown 12, MM 1
Nicole Cring struck out 15 and walked one in a one-hitter that led Cooperstown to a road victory in the Center State Conference.
Cring took a perfect game into the fifth before walking a batter, then had her no-hit erased when Sarah Mondore led off the last of the seventh with an infield single. Mondore moved to second on Cooperstown’s only error and scored on two wild pitches.
Cring (9-0) also went 2-for-2 with a home run, three runs and two RBIs for the Hawkeyes (10-0, 7-0), who also received two hits from Catherine Borgstrom.
