Matt Milburn continued his strong pitching and Oneonta High graduate Sean Getman had three hits to lead the Oneonta Outlaws to a 10-1 New York Collegiate Baseball League victory over the Geneva Twins on Tuesday at Damaschke Field.
It marked the fourth win in five games for the Outlaws (20-12), who moved into a tie for first place atop the NYCBL standings with Olean (19-11), which lost, 11-9, Tuesday to Hornell.
Milburn (4-1) improved to 3-0 in July. He worked eight innings, allowing one run on four hits. He struck out three and walked two. In his previous start, Milburn threw a two-hit shutout against Rochester.
Milburn, a right-hander who lowered his ERA to 1.95, also received plenty of support from an Outlaws offense that finished with 13 hits.
Oneonta took a 1-0 lead in the second inning, when Josh Treff doubled and scored on a single by Evan Harasta.
The Outlaws then plated five runs in the fourth inning off of losing pitcher Jimmy Spagna.
Howard Joe led off the inning with a triple to right. After Spencer Duffie walked, Getman singled to right to score Joe. Jake Levine then hit a one-out triple that scored Duffie and Getman to make it 4-0. Levine scored on a wild pitch. Mitch Hollander then walked, went to third on a double by Brian Kraft and scored on Treff’s sacrifice fly.
Hollander and Kraft had RBI hits in the sixth inning as Oneonta increased its lead to 8-1. Kraft and Treff contributed RBI groundouts in the eighth to cap the scoring.
Kraft finished with three hits, and Levine and Hollander had two hits apiece. Levine raised his batting average to .364.
The Outlaws will travel to Sherrill for a doubleheader that starts at 3 p.m. today.
