Oneonta ousts Sidney in districts


Oneonta scored four times in the first inning off of losing pitcher Quinn Barnhart. Moxley and Collin Neer walked to start the inning before Wright reached on a bunt base hit to load the bases. Pidgeon and Ben Payton followed with RBI groundouts and Zach King capped the inning with an RBI double.

Wright and King had two hits apiece for Oneonta.

Billy Kozak had two doubles and an RBI for Sidney, which received two hits from Matt Fischer.

Sidney opened the tournament with a 5-4 loss to Binghamton Post 1645 on Saturday.

Barnhart’s RBI single in the third inning scored Kozak to give Sidney a 2-0 lead. Fischer’s RBI double in the fourth made it 3-0.

But Binghamton scored once in the sixth and four more in the eighth off of losing pitcher Dan Shelton to take a 5-3 lead.

In the top of the ninth, Lucas Butcher and Jon Wingate walked with two outs. Kozak followed with an RBI single, his third of the day. After Barnhart walked to load the bases, Zack Decker flied out to center to end it.

In Oneonta’s win over Binghamton Post 80, Pidgeon went 4-for-5 with six RBIs. He hit a grand slam to right-center in the fifth inning, had an RBI double in the third inning and an RBI single in the fourth inning. Wright doubled and scored in front of Pidgeon in the third and fourth innings.

Moxley (5-3) earned the win. He pitched six innings, allowing two runs – one earned – walked none and struck out seven.

“His fastball got stronger as the game went on,” Jester said of Moxley, The Daily Star’s Player of the Year in 2012.

Moxley finished with two hits, and Wright and Matt Horne each contributed two hits and three runs.

Against Vestal, Pidgeon had two hits and two RBIs, as did Zach King, and Neer had two hits.
