Late rally not enough for Yellowjackets in loss to Forks

STAFF REPORT

Andrew Zeigenfus and Chad Raychel combined for seven hits, four RBIs and three runs to lead host Chenango Forks to a 6-4 Southern Tier Athletic Conference baseball victory Tuesday over Oneonta High.

“We were just not hitting very well,” Oneonta High coach Joe Hughes said. “We scored a few in the seventh, but it was too little, too late.”

Josh Garufi hit an RBI single and Peter Brunetta contributed an RBI double during the Yellowjackets’ four-run seventh inning.

Nate Butler went the distance for the Blue Devils. He limited OHS to four hits over the first six innings.

Zeigenfus went 4-for-4 with three runs and Raychel had three hits and four RBIs off of losing pitcher Brock Eichler.

“It seemed like we were a pitch away from getting out of jams, but they were tough hitters,” Hughes said. “They battled in six-, seven- and eight-pitch at-bats, and got key hits. We weren’t able to do that.”

Brunetta, Kevin Smith and Tyler Horne had two hits apiece for OHS (7-7, 6-7), which will travel to Norwich today.

Cooperstown 7, Milford 2

Ray Cabrera’s two-hitter included four strikeouts and two walks as Cooperstown earned a victory in the first Bud Fowler Game at Doubleday Field.

“He did a nice job of mixing his breaking ball with his fastball,” Cooperstown coach Frank Miosek said of Cabrera, who threw Cooperstown’s first complete game of the season.

Scott Curtis’ doubled to right-center scored three runs to give Cooperstown a 4-2 lead in the fourth inning.

Cooperstown (2-7) will travel to Herkimer today.

UV 10, Unatego 4

Dakota Kolvik had three hits, including a home run, and six RBIs to lead visiting Unadilla Valley to a Midstate Athletic Conference victory.

Kolvic hit a three-run homer to left in the second inning to give the Storm a 4-1 lead.
