Since starting the New York Collegiate Baseball League season with four straight victories, the Oneonta Outlaws have lost seven of their last 10 games, including back-to-back losses to the Hornell Dodgers over the weekend.
In a rematch of last season's NYCBL championship series the Outlaws swept in two games, the Dodgers followed a 10-3 victory at Damaschke Field on Saturday with a 4-3 win at home over Oneonta on Sunday.
The Outlaws' latest losses dropped their record to 7-7.
On Sunday, Hornell (17-3) scored three times in the fourth inning off of losing pitcher Jeremy Roberts to take a 4-0 lead.
Spencer Scorza singled to lead off the inning and advanced to second on Connor Lewis' walk. Blake Thomas' sacrifice bunt moved the runners to second and third.
After Jake Marinelli walked to load the bases, Jake Kenney hit an RBI single to left. Lewis also scored on the play on left fielder Frank D'Agostino's error.
Marinelli scored the inning's final run on Jimmy Latona's groundout.
The Outlaws scored once in the fifth inning, when Jimmy Hand led off with a triple to left-center and scored on Tyler Martis' groundout.
In the seventh inning, the Outlaws scored two more runs off of winning pitcher Zachary Krivda.
Krivda started the inning with two strikeouts, but Hand reached first on the latter on a dropped third strike.
Martis then walked. Kody Ruedisili then reached on an infield single to third. Hornell third baseman Lewis then made a throwing error, which allowed Hand to score as Martis moved to third and Ruedisili to second.
Matt Bolger's RBI groundout made it 4-3, before Taylor Jones grounded out to second to end the inning.
Oneonta's final hit came on a two-out single by Martis in the ninth inning, but Jeff Beall induced a groundout by Ruedisili to end it.
