Joe drew a two-out walk in the bottom frame against Johnson City graduate Ryan Clark, who completed his seven-inning five-hitter by striking out Duffie.
The second game of the doubleheader was suspended by rain with two out in the top of the fifth inning and the Chiefs ahead, 6-3.
Evan Harasta’s two-run single in the fourth pulled the Outlaws to 5-3. The Chiefs extended their lead with an RBI double by Connor Mathis in the fifth before the rain hit and flooded the infield. A date for the continuation of the second game has not been set.
Rain also canceled Oneonta’s seven-inning exhibition game against Waterford Nolan Propane on Sunday night at Damaschke Field. Outlaws President of Operations Steve Pindar said the teams played three innings before the game was called and that it will not be rescheduled.
The Outlaws visit the Geneva Twins at 7 tonight, then return to Damaschke Field at 7 p.m. Tuesday to play the same team.
