Baker strikes again as OHS tops Owego

Staff Report

Brieanna Baker finished with 14 strikeouts and three walks in a three-hitter and Oneonta High batters amassed 12 hits in a 9-2 Southern Tier Athletic Conference softball victory at Owego on Tuesday.

“She looked good,” OHS coach Randy Brockway said of Baker. “There were a lot of close pitches that didn’t quite go our way and that forced a couple of walks, but she handled the Owego hitters with a mix of rise (pitches) and curveballs to keep them off balance.”

The Yellowjackets scored twice in the first inning. Cami Cleaveland off with a single and stole second. She went to third on a groundout and scored on Erin Mushtare’s groundout to short. Brianna Haines then tripled and scored as Shelby Cleaveland reached on an error.

OHS made it 3-1 in the third, when Hayley Dower singled to right-center with one out, advanced to third when Haines reached on a fielding error in right and then scored on a throwing error.

Cami Cleaveland went 3-for-4 with two runs, Dower was 2-for-4 with a run, Shelby Cleaveland went 2-for-3 with three runs and Baker finished 2-for-4 with three RBIs.

The Yellowjackets (13-1, 12-1) will host Seton Catholic Central today.

Davenport 13, SK 12

Kacie Hymers hit two two-run homers and Emily Whipple hit a three-run shot during a nine-run sixth inning that carried visiting Davenport to a Delaware League victory.

The Wildcats led, 13-7, after their nine-run inning, but South Kortright rallied with two runs in the sixth and three more in the seventh.

Kelsey Little hit a two-run double in the bottom of the seventh to bring the Rams to 13-12, but with the tying run on third, winning pitcher Jenna Lutz induced a groundout to third to end it.

Lutz had 10 strikeouts and no walks. Counterpart MacKenzie Smith struck out seven and walked none — her first walk-free game of the season.
