Oneonta holds off Norwich in baseball


Collin Neer hit an RBI single and then scored Oneonta High’s fifth run in the fourth inning and the Yellowjackets hung on for a 5-4 Southern Tier Athletic Conference baseball victory Tuesday at Norwich.

Mason Montgomery led off Oneonta’s fourth with a double. He scored on Neer’s RBI single. Neer then stole second and third, and scored on an errant throw on the play at third to make it 5-0.

Norwich scored four unearned runs in the fourth off of winning pitcher Kragh Delello, who struck out seven, walked one and scattered 11 hits.

“Delello pitched a strong game,” OHS coach Joe Hughes said. “It was his first varsity start and he got stronger as the game went on.”

Norwich threatened in the sixth inning, putting a runner on third with one out. With the infield in, Delello induced a grounder to third. Conor Tavarone fielded it and checked the runner before getting the out at first and the third out of the inning also came on a grounder to Tavarone.

Montgomery hit a two-out RBI single during Oneonta’s two-run first inning and Zach King had an two-out RBI single in the third inning for the Yellowjackets, who received two hits apiece from Montgomery, King and Josh Garufi.

OHS (5-2, 3-2) will host Chenango Valley today in a matchup of the state’s last two Class B champions. CV won a state title in 2011 and OHS earned its first state title in baseball last spring.
