Cooperstown 5, Hamilton 2
Catherine Borgstrom went 3-for-4 to lead Cooperstown to a Center State Conference Division III victory over visiting Hamilton.
Cooperstown broke a 2-all tie with a three-run sixth. Maggie Hall and winning pitcher Nicole Cring drew intentional walks, the latter with one out, to start the bottom of the sixth. Hall moved to third on a passed ball and scored the go-ahead run after getting caught in a rundown on Ellen Vibbard’s grounder to third.
Cring advanced to third on the play. Vibbard then stole second to set up Erin Hascup’s two-run single to left-center field.
Cring struck out 11 and walked one in a six-hitter as she improved to 10-0 this season for Cooperstown (11-0, 8-0), which is responsible for both of Hamilton’s losses this season.
