Oneonta holds off Norwich in baseball

The Daily Star


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.

Margaretville 9, H-T 5

Kyle Short struck out 11, walked two and allowed two hits over five innings in Margaretville’s Delaware League win at home.

“Every time Kyle starts a game he gives us a chance to win,” Margaretville coach John Bernhardt said of Short.

Zach Mudge hit a three-run homer to left in the fifth inning to give Hunter-Tannersville a 5-2 lead. What happened next caught the eye of Hunter-Tannersville coach Ryan Funck.

Funck said Margaretville retrieved the ball. It came back to Short, who walked over to H-T’s dugout, handed the ball to Mudge and said, “good hit.”

“I thought that was a class act,” Funck said.

The Blue Devils scored seven runs in the sixth inning with only one hit.

Mitch Hull went 3-for-3, including a sacrifice fly ball and two RBIs for the Blue Devils.
