O-State baseball puts squeeze on New Paltz

Staff Report

Oneonta State played small ball then hit one deep Tuesday as the Red Dragons opened SUNY Athletic Conference play with a 6-2 baseball victory at New Paltz.

With the score tied at 2, Casey Kerdesky started Oneonta’s rally with a walk to lead off the top of the ninth inning. Kerdersky took second on a failed pickoff attempt and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Billy Riedel.

LJ Gizzarelli then walked to give O-State (5-10) runners at the corners, setting up Casy Kies for a safety squeeze that scored Kerdesky as the go-ahead run and sent Gizzarelli to second base.

Christopher Orlando then sent a 3-2 pitch over the left-center field fence for a three-run shot that marked his second homer of the season.

Alex Mastrianni gave up seven hits and two runs over eight innings for Oneonta, which scored a pair of unearned runs in the first inning. He struck out four in his first victory this season.

Roy Missall took the pitching loss for New Paltz (9-13, 1-5), which scored in the first and eighth innings.

O-State will play a non-conference doubleheader against Ithaca College at 2 p.m. today at Cornell University.
