Richfield Springs' doubleheader baseball split with visiting Cherry Valley-Springfield had a little bit of everything Monday. It also had a few big moments.

Brett Adams struck out 15 and walked two in a six-hitter as CV-S opened with a 9-1 victory over its Tri-Valley League rival. The Indians retaliated in the second game, rallying late for a 6-3 triumph in five innings to salvage a split.

Adams also tripled and singled in the first game for the Patriots, who received two hits apiece from Jake Hoag, Tyler Cade and Rich Whiteman. Five of the Patriots' 10 hits went for extra bases, included a pair of doubles by Hoag.

Whiteman (two runs) and Hoag contributed two RBIs apiece for CV-S, which took a 3-2 lead into the top of the fifth during the second game.

Kyle Richvalsky sparked the Indians' four-run fifth with a leadoff single before Nick Nicoletta and Zach Boss bunted for singles to load the bases and chase CV-S starter Alec Barringer.

Adams took over on the mound and struck out Joel Gardner for the first out. Ben Smith, who went 3-for-3 with an RBI in the opener, then squeezed in Richvalsky to tie it at 3. CV-S got Smith at first for the second out, setting up McMann for a dramatic showdown with Adams.

"We have one of the biggest fields you'll ever see. It's 350 to 360 feet to the left-field fence," RS coach Randy Stone said. "(McMann) hit the roof of the building that's on the other side of the fence. It was a shot."

McMann's three-run homer capped the scoring as the Indians sent down the Patriots in order in the bottom of the fifth, when reliever Boss struck out the side. Boss' first save of the season made a winner out of starter Gardner, who scattered five hits in second game, which was called after five innings because of darkness.

Boss finished 2-for-3 in the second game, when Tyler Cade went 2-for-2 for CV-S.

The Indians (7-4, 6-2) host Worcester today.
