Staff Report

Josh Treff, Heath Holder and Howard Joe had two hits apiece in the second game of a New York Collegiate Baseball League doubleheader Sunday, helping Oneonta to an 8-5 victory over the host Syracuse Junior Chiefs as the Outlaws salvaged a split.

The three hit consecutive RBI singles in the third inning, when the Outlaws (18-12) scored four runs to take a 5-2 lead.

Spencer Duffie contributed two RBIs and a double for third-place Oneonta, which received seven strong innings from starting pitcher Luke Crumley. He allowed two unearned runs on six hits, struck out three and walked two in seven innings.

The Chiefs rallied against reliever Tsuyoshi Horibata, who was hit up for three earned runs on five hits in 2/3 of an inning. Closer Brandon Agar took over thereafter, striking out two and allowing one hit in 1 1/3 scoreless innings for his fifth save of the season.

Treff, Joe and Jake Levine each scored twice for the Outlaws, who opened the doubleheader with a 7-3 loss to the Chiefs.

Syracuse pitchers Jordan Fuller (3-2) and Patrick Merryweather combined on a four-hitter against the Outlaws, who received runs from Joe, Brian Kraft and Oneonta High graduate Chris Pindar.

Oneonta starter Malcolm Purdy (2-3) lasted 2 1/3 innings after yielding five runs — four earned — on eight hits.

On Saturday, OHS graduate Mike Calkins earned his first pitching victory of the season by leading the Outlaws to a 5-1 win over the visiting Niagara Power.

Calkins struck out 10, walked two and gave up one earned run on three hits in 7 2/3 innings as he lowered his ERA from 14.73 to 7.80.

Kraft gave Calkins a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first as he doubled and scored on a single by Joe.
