Chris Pindar contributed three hits and three RBIs, and Jonathan Vega, Collin Neer and Conor Tavarone had two hits apiece for the Yellowjackets, who bounced back from a 12-5 loss to Chenango Valley on Wednesday by scoring a combined 27 runs against Windsor and SV the past two days.
“We had quality at-bats up and down the lineup,” Hughes said.
