OHS sophomore shuts down JC

Staff Report
The Daily Star

---- — Sophomore Brieanna Baker struck out 16 in a one-hitter and Oneonta High opened its softball season with a 7-0 Southern Tier Athletic Conference victory over visiting Johnson City on Monday.

“She overpowered most of the girls and her curveball was working well,” Yellowjackets coach Randy Brockway said of Baker, taking over in the circle this season for the graduated Seneca Baldwin _ The Daily Star’s Player of the Year in 2012. “Her location was spot on today.”

Baker took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, when the Wildcats’ Kelsey Lewis led off with a bloop single over third.

Baker finished with one walk and hit one batter.

“I have to think that’s the most we’ve had at Oneonta,” Brockway said of Baker’s 16 strikeouts. “In STAC, I’d say definitely no one has had that many.”

OHS took a 1-0 lead in the first inning. Cami Cleaveland walked to lead off. She then stole second and with JC’s center fielder covering the second, the throw went into the outfield and Cleaveland came around to score.

Singles by Shelby Cleaveland, Amy Hait, Maria DiMartin, Cami Cleaveland and Hayley Dower plated four runs in the second. Dower’s two-run single capped the inning.

Oneonta, coming off a 14-7 season, received two hits apiece from Dower, Baker and DiMartin.

On Wednesday, the Yellowjackets will host a Windsor squad that advanced to the Class B state semifinals last season.
