Outlaws down Chiefs, 4-1; Hawkeyes fall on road

Staff Report

Despite stranding 15 baserunners, the Oneonta Outlaws earned a 4-1 New York Collegiate Baseball League victory over the Syracuse Jr. Chiefs on Friday at Damaschke Field.

Oneonta starter Matt Milburn allowed one run on six hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked three.

Winning pitcher Corey Kafka followed with 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief — a span that included four strikeouts — and Brandon Agar earned the save, striking out two of the three batters he faced in the ninth.

Brian Kraft gave the Outlaws a 1-0 lead on an RBI double that drove in Jake Levine in the first inning.

Oneonta (3-2) took a 2-1 lead in the sixth inning, when Mitch Hollander scored on a passed ball.

Kraft made it 3-1 in the seventh, coming home on a bases-loaded walk to Ryan Tomita.

Hollander also drew a bases-loaded walk that pushed Oneonta High senior Chris Pindar across the plate in the eighth inning for the final margin.

Pindar finished 1-for-3 with a run and two walks. He’s batting .308 (4-for-13) with five runs, five walks, two doubles and two RBIs in his first season of college summer baseball.

OHS graduates Sean Getman and Michael Calkins did not play Friday. Rhode Island College-bound Getman is batting .143 (1-for-7) in three games this season for the Outlaws, who are managed by OHS athletic director and baseball coach Joe Hughes. The Outlaws have yet to use left-hander Calkins of Division II champion University of Tampa on the mound.

Oneonta will host the Geneva Twins at 7 p.m. Saturday at Damaschke Field, then visit the Geneva Red Wings at 5 p.m. Sunday.

Ticketholders for Saturday’s game will have an opportunity to test drive the UPS NASCAR Sprint Cup Simulator Car, which will be on display from 3-8 p.m. in front of the Outlaws’ ticket booth.
