Jackets' baseball streak snapped by Owego

The Daily Star


Oneonta High’s 19-game winning streak ended Monday with a 7-3 Southern Tier Athletic Conference baseball loss to visiting Owego.

Indians starter Matt Marsili threw five innings of shutout ball to get the victory. He struck out seven.

“(Marsili) was very effective,” said OHS coach Joe Hughes, whose team won its final 16 games a season ago when it won the Class B state championship and opened this season with three straight wins. “We fell behind against a good pitcher. He had a good fastball and a good off-speed pitch.”

Owego scored twice in the first inning and took a 4-0 lead on Mike Yanchus’ two-run double to right in the third inning. The Indians scored three more runs in the fourth inning when OHS made all three of its errors to take a 7-0 lead.

“Defensively, we gave away too many runs,” Hughes said. “The plays we’re talking about, they weren’t ESPN Top 10 plays. They’re plays that varsity players should make and we just didn’t do it.”

Oneonta scored all of its runs in the seventh, when Peter Brunetta hit a two-run single.

Senior Chris Pindar had two hits, including a double, for the Yellowjackets. Pindar has had two hits in each of Oneonta’s four games this season.

Left-hander Brock Eichler (2-1) took the loss.

OHS (3-1, 1-1) will play Seton Catholic Central on Thursday at NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton.

Freshman Josh Feyerabend struck out seven and walked three in a one-hitter to lead host Unatego to a Midstate Athletic Conference victory.

“He loves baseball and he does a lot in the offseason,” Unatego coach Frank Microni said of Feyerabend, who is 2-0. “He’s mature for his grade. He’s a big, strong kid for a freshman.”

Microni said Feyerabend spotted his fastball well and mixed in an occasional curveball.

Kellen Komenda, Jon Wingate, Phil Youngs and Nick Angell had two hits apiece, and Quinn Barnhart had a pair of RBIs for the Spartans (5-2, 3-0), who will travel to Delhi on Wednesday.
