Mason Montgomery and Zach King drove in five runs apiece Thursday, leading the defending Class B state champion Oneonta High baseball team to a 20-4 rout of host Seton Catholic Central.

Noah Sheehan tripled and doubled in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference game at NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton, and Oneonta teammate Conor Tavarone scored three times.

The Yellowjackets’ 13-hit attack helped junior Kevin Smith to his first pitching victory. He struck out five, walked three and allowed two earned runs on four hits in six innings.

“Kevin pitched a strong game for us,” said OHS coach Joe Hughes, whose team rebounded from a 7-3 loss to Owego on Monday that snapped the Jackets’ 19-game winning streak. “He did a real nice job and benefited from some offensive fireworks. ... We had contributions up and down the lineup.”

Montgomery, King, Sheehan, Tavarone and Chris Pindar each had two hits for OHS (4-1, 2-1), which visits Chenango Forks today.
