Geneva Snow Cats split doubleheader with Monarchs

SNOW CATS (7-3) 6
MONARCHS (7-3) 7

Christian Montanez (RWU) and Jourdan Plaisted (Elmira College) ignited a three-run Monarchs comeback to win Game 1. Montanez knotted the contest at six apiece with an opposite field, three-run bomb in the fifth. Plaisted drove in his second RBI of the game with a single for a 7-6 lead the Monarchs would not relinquish.

Montanez is on a five-game hitting streak after going hitless in his first five games of the season. The 6-foot-6 righty has seven hits on the season and tied with Dylan Mackenzie (Flyin’ Fish/SUNY Cortland) with a league-high three home runs.

Hayden Ewell (Southern New Hampshire University) earned the victory after shutting down the Snow Cats in the final two innings, allowing two hits and striking out three. Gavin Moore (Alfred State College) was 3-of-3 with a triple, run scored and RBI.

Frank Fernandes, Justin LoTemple (Alfred State College) and Andrew Sanchez (Mercyhurst University) each collected a hit in the game.

Mark Trotta (College of William and Mary) led the Snow Cats offense with three hits and two runs scored as the team jumped out to a 6-2 lead after three innings. He is now 13-for-26 on the year and has five multi-hit games in 10 appearances.

Garrett Bell (Ithaca College), Patrick Blackall (Rochester Institute of Technology), Nick Franceschi (Cayuga Community College) and Branden Myers (St. Bonaventure University) all had a hit.


MONARCHS (7-4) 1
SNOW CATS (8-3) 2

The Snow Cats made their one hit stand as their pitching led the team to the doubleheader split. The duo of Rojo Prairie (College of William and Mary) and Jack Leahy (Rochester Institute of Technology) combined to allow only four hits and strike out nine. Leahy retired the first nine batters he faced. Prairie induced a fly out to end the game with the tying run on first base.

The Snow Cats used small ball to score the go-ahead run in the fifth inning. Tied at one, Matt Smith (Ithaca College) reached first on a fielder’s choice, advanced to third on a pair of wild pitches and scored on James Cronin’s (St. Lawrence University) sacrifice fly.

Patrick Blackall (Rochester Institute of Technology) accounted for the team’s lone hit with a run-scoring single in the second.

For the Monarchs, Trevor Povlock (Rochester Institute of Technology) struck out seven in four innings of one-hit ball. Nick Serce (Alfred State College) hurled two hitless frames of relief.
