In the eighth, the Outlaws had the makings of a big inning but scored once.
Evan Harasta and Heath Holder singled with one out off of winning pitcher Joey Gamache. Kyle McLain relieved Gamache and walked Joe to load the bases. Spencer Duffie then hit an RBI single that made it 6-4. But McLain struck out Ryan Tomita and Oneonta High graduate Chris Pindar to end the inning.
Oneonta threatened again in the ninth.
After McLain retired the first two batters, Mitch Hollander reached on an error by first baseman Beermann, Harasta walked and Holder singled to load the bases. Derek Vail relieved McLain and Joe bounced out to first to end it.
Oneonta scored twice in the third to take a 2-1 lead. With one out, Duffie and Tomita singled, and Pindar walked to load the bases. Jake Levine followed with a two-run single. But Brian Kraft struck out and Pindar was picked off to end the inning.
Hollander scored on a wild pitch in the fourth to extend Oneonta’s lead to 3-1.
OHS graduate Mike Calkins retired all six batters he faced in the eighth and ninth innings for the Outlaws. He struck out one.
Harasta had three hits, and Duffie and Holder finished with two hits apiece.
