Geneva Snow Cats win seventh straight

FLYIN FISH (6-10) 4
SNOW CATS (14-3) 5

Patrick Blackall (RIT) went 2-for-3, scored a run and drove in a RBI as the Snow Cats won their seventh straight and ninth in 10 games. The squad has  outscored their opponents 38-9 within that span over the past seven outings.

Blackall’s biggest hit gave the Snow Cats a two-run cushion with a two-out single in the third.

The Cats tied the game at two in the bottom of the second on a wild pitch, passed ball and a single from Garrett Bell (Ithaca). He later drove in Gil Merod (Ithaca) for the game-winning run in the fourth.

Rojo Prarie (William Mary) stranded the tying run on second after giving up a two-out double in the seventh. The righty completed his third save of the season with his fifth strikeout of the game. Through 19 1/3 innings, he’s set down 39 on strikes and has an ERA of 0.72.

Lachlan Charles (Cornell University) and David Bermudez (Rider University) both collected a base knock for the Cats. Mark Trotta (William Mary), James Cronin (St. Lawrence) and Merod each scored a run.

Reliever Buzz Shirley (Ithaca) earned the win after tossing three innings with two runs given up on three hits and four strikeouts.

In the top of the fifth, Jesus Baez tripled in Jarod Signorelli (Elmira) to cut the score to 5-3. Dylan Mackenzie (SUNY Cortland) followed with an additional run driven in. Both finished with a RBI and run scored.

Nate Sanderson (Hilbert) led the Fish with two hits and a RBI. Trevor Robinson (Tompkins Cortland CC), Zach Harter (Finger Lakes CC) and Ryan Demitrovic (Alfred State) each collected a hit.

Fish starter Demitrovic was pinned with the loss despite giving up zero earned runs (5 runs). The 5-foot-10 righty threw four innings, gave up four hits and struck out three. Tyrone Woods allowed one hit and struck out three in two innings of relief.
