Outlaws drop fourth straight, 7-4

Taylor Jones went 3-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and a run Tuesday, but the Oneonta Outlaws fell, 7-4, to the Sherrill Silversmiths in a New York Collegiate Baseball League game at Damaschke Field.

Oneonta's loss to the Eastern Division-leading Silversmiths (11-4) marked its fourth straight loss after opening the season with four consecutive victories.

The Outlaws (4-4), third behind Sherrill and the Geneva Red Wings (7-5) in the East, will visit the Syracuse Salt Cats at 7 p.m. today at Onondaga Community College. The Salt Cats (7-8) stand fourth in the six-team Eastern Division.

Jones drove in the first run of Tuesday's game with a two-out triple to left field.

Kody Ruedisili singled off Sherrill starter Cody Tolbert, who then walked Matthew Bolger to give Oneonta runners at first and second. Jones then tripled home Ruedisili, but Bolger was thrown out at the plate on the relay from second baseman Kellen Brown to end the inning.

The Silversmiths rallied back with three runs in the fourth against losing pitcher Jeremy Roberts, who walked Brown to open the inning. After getting sacrificed to second by Reid Neal, Brown scored to tie it when Oneonta shortstop Ben Mauseth misplayed a grounder by Kevin Brice.

Mauseth made another error on a ball hit by Oneonta High graduate David Wright, giving Sherrill runners at the corners. Christian Triplett followed with an RBI single and Nicholas Duarte drove in Wright with a groundout to second to put the Silversmiths up, 3-1.

Neal doubled to lead off the sixth and later scored on a passed ball for a 4-1 lead. Wright singled and moved into scoring position on a passed ball before making it 5-1 as he scored on a single by Duarte in the sixth.

Back-to-back singles by Jones and Mauseth to start the bottom frame put runners at the corners for Oneonta, which cut its deficit to 5-2 when the two executed a double steal.
