Conor Youngs struck out nine and walked none in a five-hitter and Chris Pindar had two hits to lead Oneonta High to a 4-2 Southern Tier Athletic Conference baseball victory over visiting Owego on Saturday.

"He got his curveball over," OHS coach Joe Hughes said of Youngs, who allowed two unearned runs in the third inning. "He started to pitch off his curveball, which made his fastball seem 10 mph faster."

The Yellowjackets (9-1, 5-1), winners of eight straight, scored three times in the second inning to take a 3-0 lead. Mike Calkins walked to open the inning and went to second on an infield single by Mark Giallanzo. After an out, Zach Pidgeon hit an RBI single that sent Giallanzo to third. Pidgeon and Giallanzo then executed a double steal for Oneonta's second run.

"(Pidgeon) was trying to steal second," Hughes said. "When the throw went through, Mark broke for home."

Pidgeon scored on Pindar's RBI single to make it 3-0.

Pindar also contributed an RBI double with two outs in the sixth inning to cap the scoring.

The Yellowjackets travel to Johnson City today.
