Outlaws take five in a row from Cortland

Staff Report

Kody Ruedisili finished what John Boland started Sunday at Damaschke Field.

Down to their last out in the bottom of the 10th inning, the Oneonta Outlaws loaded the bases before Ruedisili hit a two-run single to secure a 6-5 New York Collegiate Baseball League victory over the visiting Cortland Crush.

Ruedisili’s walkoff single capped Oneonta’s five-game sweep of the Crush, who lost back-to-back doubleheaders to the Outlaws on Friday and Saturday at Damaschke Field.

Oneonta (17-12), which started its winning streak after dropping a 6-3 cross-division game at the Olean Oilers on Wednesday, is one game behind the Geneva Red Wings (18-11) for first place in the six-team Eastern Division.

The Outlaws, who announced an attendance of 1,496 fans Sunday, will not return to Damaschke Field until a 7 p.m. game against the third-place Syracuse Salt Cats (17-14) this Saturday.

The NYCBL All-Star break begins with an off day today, followed by its annual All-Star Game between the Eastern and Western divisions at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Houghton College’s Kerr-Pegula Athletic Complex, the home of the Genesee Rapids.

The Outlaws’ Brandon Agar (RHP), Taylor Hicks (RHP), Taylor Jones (OF), Ben Mauseth (SS) and Ramon Osuna Sanchez (1B) will play for the Eastern Division All-Stars.

The NYCBL All-Star Home Run Derby, which starts at 6 p.m. Tuesday, will feature Osuna Sanchez and eight other players. Osuna Sanchez has hit one home run this season and is tied with Mauseth and Kyle Brennan for the team lead.

Oneonta will follow All-Star Tuesday with three straight road games, visiting the Sherrill Silversmiths (15-15) on Wednesday and Thursday before traveling to play the Salt Cats on Friday.

Boland started Sunday’s comeback with a two-out single off losing pitcher Tom Taplin. Pinch-runner Carson Waln then stole second before Jimmy Hand walked, prompting Cortland to turn to first baseman Greg Jasek for a relief-pitching appearance.
