Pioneers Swept at Niagara

Pioneers Swept at Niagara

The Alfred State baseball team got back on the field after a pair of rainouts and fell in both halves of a Region III Division III doubleheader at defending Region III champion Niagara CCC. Walks proved costly in a 10-2 loss in the opener and the Pioneers were held to just three hits in a 2-0 pitching dual in game two.

In the opener, NCCC took advantage of seven walks and three hit battersby the Pioneer starter to ease to the victory.  Colton Caldwell (Dublin, OH) was 1 for 3 with both of the team's RBI while Tom Banicky (Orson, PA/Hancock) was 1 for 1 while Jordyn Confer (Tioga, PA/Williamson) was 1 for 3 with a double.

In the nightcap, the Thunderwolves scored both of their runs in the 5th after a controversial call at first base that would have ended the inning.  Jordan Wheaton (Wayland Cohocton) collected the Pioneers only hits of the day finishing 3 for 3 with a stolen base.  Stephen Solomon (Harrisburg, PA) allowed six hits and the two runs in six inning of work but was the hard luck loser.

The Pioneers (6-21, 4-6 Region III Division III) begin a four game series with Onondaga CC on Tuesday.  First pitch in Syracuse is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Tuesday with a doubleheader at Alfred scheduled on Thursday.
