Green Wave rolls against Endicott, 19-1

JARED BOMBA | The Daily Star Oneonta's Tanner Russin throws to first base during the fifth inning of Wednesday's game at Oneonta High School.

Oneonta scored 13 runs with two outs in the bottom of the first to defeat Endicott, 19-1, in five innings Wednesday at Oneonta High School.

The Green Wave saw two of its first three hitters make an out before sending 16 more batters to the plate in the inning. By the end of the frame, Oneonta had batted around twice and benefited from seven walks and two errors.

Tanner Russin had a two-RBI single and leadoff hitter Aidan Breakey had a two-RBI double in his second of three at-bats in the inning.

"We had good at-bats and we didn't swing at bad pitches," Green Wave coach Mike Jester said. "I've never seen anything like it, scoring 13 runs with two outs."

Oneonta scored at least once in its three remaining opportunities, including four in the third. Cameron Neer was the only Green Wave player with multiple hits, going 2-for-3 with a RBI and three runs. Oneonta totaled nine hits and Endicott committed six errors.

That was plenty of support for Oneonta starter Sean MacInerney (1-1), who pitched all five innings to earn the win. He struckout four and walked one while allowing one earned run.

"They were missing a couple of players, but I didn't expect to roll like that," Jester said. "They are pretty young, but it's never happened before."

Oneonta (10-6) visits Binghamton Post 80 Friday at 6 p.m. on Conlon Field.

Elmira 7, Oneonta 1

The Oneonta offense struggled to produce Wednesday as the Outlaws dropped a third consecutive contest with a home loss to Elmira.

Pioneers starter Keegan Ernest allowed one first-inning run after an infield error allowed Tim Buchek to single in Kevin Gsell. Ernest came back with six scoreless innings, holding the Outlaws to four hits, zero earned runs and zero walks in seven innings. He struck out eight.

Drew Guldin entered in the eighth with the Pioneers leading by six, and finished up with one hit allowed in two scoreless innings.

Buchek paced the Oneonta offense with two hits and the lone RBI. Noah Cabrera, Mike Casaleggio and Minjae Hong had the remaining hits for the Outlaws.

Oneonta used six pitchers as Elmira collected nine hits for its seven runs. Josh Hudgins got the start, allowing two earned runs in just more than an inning of work. Walker Sutman took over in the second, and was on the hill when the Outlaws committed three errors in the fourth to allow four unearned runs. He finished with four runs allowed, zero of them earned, along with three walks and three strikeouts in 2 2/3 innings.

The Outlaws (7-13) visit Saugerties on Friday at 7 p.m.
