Wmsv. East no-no goes nowhere
Williamsville East pitchers Hunter Dee and Matt Whiting combined on a no-hitter and still endured a 2-1 loss to Sweet Home. Sweet Home had only four baserunners, all in the second inning, on three walks and a hit-by-pitch.
In the Panthers' second, Jacob Logiudice walked and stole second. Taylor Kacz got hit by a pitch and Jordan Everet walked to load the bases. Cody Johnson hit a sacrifice to left field to drive in Logiudice. With runners on second and third, Kacz scored on a balk.
"This was very unusual. Both teams got solid pitching and defense, and two of the game's three runs came in non-conventional ways," said Sweet Home coach Derek Zgoda. "Obviously the sacrifice fly by Cody was a great at-bat. And the balk was out of character because they were in control the whole game."
Sweet Home's Steve Stapleton allowed three hits over five innings to get the win. Reliever Nick Beresford pitched two innings to get the save. Williamsville East's run came in the sixth, when Brandon Schick doubled and scored on a throwing error.
Patience pays for Wmsv. North
It took two trips to Jamestown and 13 innings for the Williamsville North baseball team to come away with a 7-6 win over the Red Raiders. North and Jamestown played to a 6-6 tie after eight innings the first time they met on May 4. On the day the game was rescheduled, it rained.
But in the top of the 13th Monday, cleanup hitter P.J. Mistretta homered to left center with two outs for the winning run. Mistretta, who's the Spartans' regular shortstop, earned the win on the mound as he pitched five scoreless innings.
"He really hasn't really pitched that much. He grabbed the ball, and started off real good, so we let him go," said coach Jerry Scarcella.
Dunkirk, Fredonia both 8-2
Kevin Burns had a two-run single in the bottom of the sixth inning, driving in Mike Rozmalski and Kevin Holmes, as the Dunkirk baseball team remained in thick of the race for the CCAA I title with a 6-5 win over rival Fredonia. Each team is 8-2 with two games left.
Dunkirk also threw out two runners at home plate in the fourth inning.
Each has a game today and Wednesday. Fredonia plays Allegany-Limestone and Falconer, which have three combined league wins. Dunkirk has Olean, which won the first meeting, 10-2, and Gowanda.
Cleveland Hill wins title
Kim Rohe's walk-off single in the bottom of the seventh inning not only gave the Cleveland Hill softball team a 3-2 win over Tonawanda, it clinched the ECIC IV title for the Eagles. It was one of three hits for Rohe, who also pitched a four-hitter. The Eagles rallied from a 2-0 deficit after the first inning. They won the league with an 11-1 record.
