The SUNY Cobleskill baseball team pushed their current winning streak to nine games by sweeping the visiting Wildcats of Cazenovia College in North Atlantic Conference (NAC) action on Friday by scores of 6-4 and 8-2 at Fighting Tiger Field. With the sweep Cobleskill moves into first place in the NAC Western Division with a 16-11 overall including a 7-0 record versus NAC opponents while the Wildcats are now 7-17 overall with a 2-5 record in conference action.  

The Fighting Tigers trailed the visitors 3-2 in the bottom of the sixth inning with the bases loaded and two outs when Head Coach Lance Ratchford went to his bench sending first year slugger Logan Hutter, Smithtown, N.Y. Smithtown West High School, in to pinch hit. Hutter who had arrived to the game the previous inning from a late class and a make-up exam responded by ripping a bases clearing double down the third base line to give Cobleskill a 5-3 lead. He would then score the team’s final run when the Wildcats committed an error on a ball hit by first year pinch hitter Matt Deall, Manorville, N.Y., Eastport South-Manorville High School, which made it 6-3. 

Cobleskill senior starter Jarrod Williams, Baldwinsville, N.Y., C.W. Baker High School/Finger Lakes Community College, went six innings allowing three earned runs on five hits striking our 10 Wildcat hitters while walking three to improve to 2-0 overall on the year with relief help in the sixth inning from senior Manielvic Diplan, Peekskill, N.Y., Peekskill High School, who notched his second save of the year.  

Sophomore third baseman David Flora, Windsor, N.Y., Windsor High School/Herkimer Community College, kept the home team in the contest early twice tying the game with solo home runs as part of a 2-for-3 effort at the plate.  

In the second game Cobleskill senior lefty Devin Lewis, Cobleskill, N.Y., Cobleskill-Richmondville High School, returned from the disabled list to hold the Wildcats scoreless over five innings allowing only two hits while striking out two and walking only one to improve to 3-2 overall on the year. 

Offensively the Fighting Tigers capitalized on three Cazenovia errors and several wild pitches to secure the victory as senior shortstop Eddy Garcia, Bronx, N.Y., World View High School, went 2-for-3 with a pair of triples, a run scored and an RBI while third baseman David Flora continues his hot hitting going 2-for-3 with a stolen base, a run scored and an RBI. Catcher Logan Hutter also continued to play well going 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored with first year center fielder Zach Ducorsky, Oceanside, N.Y., Oceanside High School, going 1-for-2 with a walk and an RBI from the lead-off stop.  

The two teams are tentatively scheduled to next meet on Monday April 18 for a NAC single game at Fighting Tiger Field.
