A Clinton County run in the top of the seventh broke a 3-3 tie and gave Oneonta a loss in its first game of the Green Wave Classic on Friday at Damaschke Field.
Clinton County’s Dyllon Bougor led off the top of the seventh, reaching first after being hit by a pitch from Oneonta’s Tanner Beang. He stole second and scored on a single by Izaiah Browne in the next at-bat.
Oneonta went down 1-2-3 in the bottom of the seventh to drop the opener.
Bougor opened the scoring in the top of the first for Clinton County before the Green Wave got three in the third. Cameron Neer walked to start the inning, and Aidan Breakey reached via error with one out. Ryan Packard followed with another walk before Caden Clow drove in two with a single. Tanner Russin recorded a RBI single with two outs for what proved to be Oneonta’s final run.
The Green Wave (5-5) plays Corning on Saturday at 10 a.m. at Oneonta High School and finishes round-robin play at 4 p.m. against Brockville at the same location. Tournament play concludes Sunday.
Outlaws 8, Stallions 6
Oneonta scored three eighth-inning runs to come from behind and beat Saugerties on the road Friday.
Nick Cabrera’s bases-loaded walk scored Mike Casaleggio to start the scoring in the inning before Cavan Tully’s two-out single plated Ben Bianco and Niko Amory to give the Outlaws a 7-5 lead entering the bottom of the eighth.
Saugerties answered with a run in the home half, but John Rhodes’ double and a RBI single by Bianco manufactured a run with two outs for Oneonta. Bowen Plagge threw a scoreless ninth and the Outlaws won for the second time in three outings.
Oneonta starter Tim Buchek earned no decision by allowing four runs, two of them earned, in four innings. He struck out three and walked one while allowing five hits.
Rhodes, Bianco and Cabrera all had two hits for the Outlaws. Rhodes had two doubles with a RBI, while Bianco, Cabrera and Tully all had two RBIs.
Oneonta scored first in the top of the first as Bianco plated Casaleggio on a RBI groundout after Casaleggio was hit by a pitch and Rhodes doubled to left field.
The Outlaws got another run in the third after Baylin Moore led off with a triple. In the fourth, two walks and a error keyed a two-run inning for the visitors.
Oneonta (6-10) remains in last place in the PGCBL East, trailing first-place Amsterdam (13-2) by 7.5 games.
The Outlaws host Utica (9-5) Saturday at 7:05 p.m. at Damaschke Field.
