OHS hitters stymied in 1-0 loss


Paige Rauch followed with a single up the middle to score Cary.

“We did pretty well, but they got the one hit, the one run,” said Baker, who combined to strike out 31 batters as Oneonta opened the season with 7-0 wins over Johnson City and Seton Catholic Central. “I’m not going to lie, they have good hitters, but we have good fielders and we’ll get them next time.”

Though the Yellowjackets struggled at the plate, they had better at-bats as the game progressed.

The lone baserunner for OHS through the first four innings came on a two-out walk by Erin Mushtare in the fourth.

But Shelby Cleaveland led Oneonta’s fifth with a lined single to center. Sloman followed with a walk.

Baker then hit a grounder to shortstop Emma Benson, who flipped to third baseman Cary for a forceout. After Alexis Ramsey struck out, Sloman was caught stealing third for the third out.

The next inning, No. 9 hitter Maria DiMartin reached on a bunt-single to short.

Cami Cleaveland followed with the Yellowjackets’ hardest-hit ball. She hit a hard liner, but Windsor center fielder Kylie Buchek was positioned perfectly and barely had to move to catch it.

“That’s just luck,” Brockway said. “If Cami hits it 3 feet one way or the other, it’s probably a run based on who we have running. Credit Cami for hitting a hard-hit ball, but credit Windsor for having us played right.”

DiMartin advanced to second when Mushtare was hit by a pitch, but Brianna Haines grounded out to first to end the inning.

Shelby Cleaveland again singled to center to start Oneonta’s seventh and went to second on a sacrifice by Sloman. Starley then retired Baker on a weak liner to short and got pinch-hitter Ceili Getman on a popout to the catcher to end it.
