Ridgemen struggle in loss to Genesee

Senior Austin Marsh (Greenville College) struck out nine batters over seven-and-thirds innings in the Genesee Rapids’ 10-2 win over the Rochester Ridgemen in New York Collegiate Baseball League action Tuesday night at Basket Road Field. Marsh allowed one run on two hits and five walks.

“I knew our starting pitcher went pretty far against them last time,” Marsh said. “Our defense has been solid the last week, so I never have worry about anything like that, I know I can just throw strikes.”

The Ridgemen matched Marsh by starting sophomore Daniel Smith (University of Chicago) on the mound. Smith finished his start with six runs (five earned), eight hits and six walks surrendered, striking out two in five innings.

“It was a rough start. I got behind in too many counts [and] walked too many guys,” Smith said. “Then they just sit fastball and they know it’s coming. It’s tough to pitch like that.

Rapids’ head coach Joe Mina said the win was a very positive experience after a rocky road to open the season.

“We’ve been struggling, going up and down, kind of a roller coaster ride for the last week or so,” Mina said. “It was nice to see guys who have been taking a break coming off the bench and producing for us. Just a total team effort.”

The Rapids began scoring quickly, plating three runs in the first two innings.

In the first inning, after junior AJ Nitzschke (Northwestern College) doubled with two outs, senior Travis Ralls (Greenville College) singled to give the Rapids’ a 1-0 lead. The Rapids followed with two runs in the second on a single for senior John Zamites (Houghton College), scoring sophomores Josh Hayner (Messiah College) and Aneury Lara (New England College).

The Ridgemen broke up the shutout in the second, loading the bases with one out. This set up junior Connor Dunn (University of Puget Sound) to draw a walk, scoring senior Ethan Luna (Southwestern University).

Hayner came around to score again in the fourth when senior Adam Marston (Eastern Mennonite University) singled, but the Rapids delivered a blow in the fifth thanks to Lara.

With the bases loaded after Ralls reached on an error, freshman JP Knight (Tufts University) walked and Hayner reached on a fielder’s choice, Lara stepped to the plate with a chance to extend the lead. He wasted no time, jumping on the first pitch and driving it into the outfield for a two-run double.

Another two runs came across in the sixth when Knight drew a bases-loaded walk, with the ball getting away and allowing both Nitzschke and senior Judah Wollenburg (Indiana Wesleyan University) to score.

But Knight’s night was not over, as in the eighth inning with two outs and one on, he slapped a single into right field. The right fielder came up firing to try to get Nitzschke, who had walked, out at third, but the ball sailed out of play and Nitzschke scored.

“I felt like my last few games I’ve been seeing too many pitches, so I tried to attack strikes early,” Knight said. “Anything close I just like to drive it. [I] just got a couple good pitches to hit and took advantage.”

Lara scored on a sacrifice groundout by Zamites in the ninth with the Ridgemen adding a second run in the bottom half when senior TJ Lanning (Trinity College) tripled and scored on their own sacrifice groundout for junior Dillon McTague (Colorado Christian College).

However, this is as far as the Ridgemen got, as the Rapids got through the ninth to secure the win.

Ridgemen head coach Justin Dillard said there weren’t many positives to the game.

“It was weird night. We were bad [and] they made a lot of outs on the base paths,” Dillard said. “So what do you take from this? Not a thing. Hopefully, a night like this never happens again.”

The Ridgemen drop to 3-10, while the Rapids improve to 7-9 on the year.

The Ridgemen will next play Wednesday when they travel to Cortland to play the Crush at 6 p.m.

The Rapids will play on Wednesday, hosting the Olean Oilers at 7 p.m.

6/19 Game Summary

by Mikael Desanto

Freshman Gunner Becker (Niagara County Community College) pitched eight scoreless innings, allowing one hit and striking out seven batters to lead the Olean Oilers to a 3-0 win over the Rochester Ridgemen in New York Collegiate Baseball League action at Basket Road Field Monday night.

“My approach is always the same: go in there and throw strikes,” Becker said. “Going out there in the bullpen and really making sure I’m ready, making sure I’m throwing a bunch of strikes before I go out there.”

Oilers head coach Jay Weitzel said the strong pitching performance showed Becker should be a strong arm going forward for the team.

“He kept donuts up there after donuts,” Weitzel said. “He’s an exceptional kid. He battles every time.”

The Ridgemen countered by sending senior Jordan Brown (Baker University) to the bump for the start. Brown threw six innings, giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts.

“I was able to spot up my fastball, changeup, got a few strikeouts off that back door on some guys,” Brown said. “ But, [I] really couldn’t throw my knuckle-curve for strikes, which really limits me on the mound.”

The Oilers’ offense got started in the top of the first inning, scoring the first run of the game quickly.

Junior Mike Magnanti (Finger Lakes Community College/Greece) reached base with a single, advancing all the way third on a stolen base and the ensuing throw, which sailed wide of second base. This set up sophomore Allen Murphy (St. John Fisher College) to single home the runner, putting the Oilers up 1-0.

“Honestly, I just caught it off the end of my stick and out. I just stayed on it long enough to send it to left field,” Murphy said. “I stay aggressive [and] go early if it’s there.”

The Oilers added two additional runs later in the game, with one in the sixth inning and one in the eighth.

In the sixth, senior Chris Wastchak (California University of Pennsylvania) singled to get on, stealing second and third thanks to a wild pitch. This put Wastchak in position to score on a passed ball.

In the eighth, Murphy reached via single and Wastchak wasted little time bringing him home, doubling to plate Murphy for the final run of the game.

Senior Kaden Darrow (Marymount University) and sophomore Nate Mascellino (Niagara University) held the Ridgemen scoreless in the ninth inning, locking down the win for the Oilers.

Ridgemen head coach Justin Dillard said there were some positives to take away from the loss, including the festivities for Military Appreciation Night.

“First, it was just a whole lot of fun to have the members of VFW out here tonight. We were just honored that they graced us with their presence,” Dillard said. “We’ll take out pitching and string them all together where we’re not making mistakes, and not giving away free stuff, and competing with the bat in our hands.”

The Oilers improve to 5-9, while the Ridgemen fall to 3-9.

The Ridgemen will next play Tuesday at Basket Road Field against the Genesee Rapids at 7 p.m.

The Oilers next game is also on Tuesday at 7 p.m. as they host the Cortland Crush.

6/9 Game Recap

by Mikael DeSanto

Senior Sam Vilk (Seton Hill University) went 3-for-3 with six RBI, three runs scored and three walks in the Olean Oilers 24-2 win over the Rochester Ridgemen in New York Collegiate Baseball League action at Basket Road Field Friday night. Vilk earned Player of the Night honors for his performance in the game, which was called after seven innings.

“Honestly, since the school season, I keep the same approach every time I go up to the plate,” Vilk said. “I just have the same two thoughts, it’s have fun and make solid contact. Honestly with that, I just try to go up there, see a pitch as best I can, just take my hands to the ball and have fun with it.”

Vilk drove in runs with bases-loaded walks in the second, fourth and fifth, as well as a two-run double in the first and an RBI single in the sixth.

Senior Chris Wastchak (California University of Pennsylvania) also delivered a six RBI game for the Oilers, going 2-for-2 with two runs scored. Wastchak’s biggest blow came when he drove 1-1 pitch over the right-centerfield wall with the bases loaded for a grand slam.

“The first pitch I saw, I just wanted to get my timing down,” Wastchak said. “H ejust came into the game, so I watched the first one and it was right there. So I figured that he was just trying to get outs. He threw the ball in the same spot I timed it up to, I just connected up to it and drove it.

Wastchak also homered on Sunday at Basket Road Field.

Oilers head coach Jay Weitzel said the team responded well to a tough loss 11-7 to the Sherrill Silversmiths on Wednesday.

“The games are tough. This is going to be a pretty good team,” Weitzel said. “[It] might comeback to bite me, but if they keep listening, working hard and doing the right stuff, the improvement from day one to now is big with me. A lot of these kids haven’t had a lot of at bats this year and haven’t played for four weeks, maybe they hit their stride a little bit.”

The Oilers started junior Colin Benner (Shepherd College) on the mound. Benner threw six innings, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk, striking out five.

“I want to say my defense, first of all. They get a base hit [and], next thing you know, double play ball,” Benner said. “I did fall behind in a few of the counts, but I battled back, but big shout out to the defense, they really put on a good show today.”

The Ridgemen countered with sophomore Jaden Stromire (California Lutheran University), who left with a line of nine runs (eight earned), five hits and three walks given up with two strikeouts in one-plus inning pitched.

The Oilers were able to score a run in each inning, getting an RBI from seven of the nine starters in the lineup. The only two starters to not drive in a run were sophomore Allen Murphy (St. John Fisher College) and senior Ryan O’Connor (St. Bonaventure University).

The Ridgemen were able to muster a pair of runs late, thanks to junior Connor Dunn (University of Puget Sound) and senior Christian Bitar (Regis University).

Ridgemen head coach Justin Dillard said the game was difficult on the pitching staff, a majority of whom Dillard chose to rest in favor of fielders.

“It was hard, where we have a big stretch coming up. We have one off-day between now and the end of the month basically,” Dillard said. “So we just don’t have pitching to give. Then we’re running position players out basically from the fourth inning just trying to get outs.”

The loss drops the Ridgemen to 0-5 so far on the season, while the Oilers improve to 2-4. Both of the Oilers wins have come against the Ridgemen.

Sophomore Jake Miknis (St. Bonaventure University) scored four times and put up two hit, two RBI and three walks for the Oilers.

The Ridgemen will hit the road for the next eight days, starting with a 7 p.m. game against the Hornell Dodgers on Saturday.

The Oilers will seek revenge against the Silversmiths, hosting them on Saturday at 7 p.m.

6/7 Game Recap

By Mikael DeSanto

Senior Brenden Cuni (Felician College) drove in four RBI for the Wellsville Nitros, who beat the Rochester Ridgemen 8-7 in New York Collegiate Baseball League action Wednesday night at Basket Road Field. Cuni’s one out, bases clearing double plated sophomore Bayley Jamanis (Seton Hill University), and juniors Ryan Kosmynka (Notre Dame College) and Cole Tracy (Mansfield University), and sparked a seven run sixth inning. The Nitros’ slugger had recently been moved down in the order due to struggles at the plate.

“I knew Coach batted me in the seven spot after a couple tough games, so I knew I’d be seeing a lot more fastballs, so I was just looking to drive in the gaps basically,” Cuni said. “Walking into that at bat, he had just walked someone so I knew I was going to get a pitch to hit, and I was just waiting for it.”

The Nitros sent junior Joseph Mallory (Union College) to the hill for the start. Mallory threw six innings and allowed five runs (two earned) on nine hits and one walk with four strikeouts.

After being knocked around early, Mallory settled in, allowing three base runners (one each inning on two singles and a hit-by-a-pitch) in his final three innings of work.

“[The] beginning of the game, that’s baseball, stuff happens. Sometimes [the] defense doesn’t make plays, sometimes you don’t make a good pitch, you just have to fight through it,” Mallory said. “You have to make the next pitch, you have to get them out, give them a chance.”

Nitros head coach Sam Quinn-Loeb said his team did not come out strong, but was able to climb back and stay in the game.

“It was a lousy performance from the early going. We had to make some changes,” Quinn-Loeb said. “Then the guys competed in the last five innings. That’s all I want them to do, compete out there hard, make the plays and then whatever happens, happens.”

Senior Jordan Brown (Baker University) matched up with Mallory for the Ridgemen, going five-and-one-third innings and giving up five runs on nine hits and one walk, also striking out three.

“My approach is always to just go after hitters,” Brown said. “Sometimes that gets me in trouble because I’ll leave stuff over the plate. It just so happens the runs came with lead-off hitters getting on and that’s something I need to clean up as we go forward.”

The Ridgemen struck quickly to open the scoring, putting up two runs in the first inning. After a single and an error at second base put two runners on, senior TJ Lanning II (ASA College) stepped to the plate with the chance to give the Ridgemen the lead. A passed ball moved the runners to second and third, allowing Lanning to single and plate the first run of the game. Sophomore Sean Rooney (Point Loma Nazarene University) followed with another single, driving in another run for the Ridgemen.

The Nitros got a run back in the second inning thanks to a triple and a fielder’s choice, but Rooney helped the Ridgemen add more runs in the third inning, pushing a bunt in between the pitcher and a charging third baseman with the bases loaded, reaching safely and bringing home a run.

“First at bat, I walked up there, was feeling confident in myself, guy gave me a pitch I could hit and I just put it through the hole,” Rooney said. “The next at bat, Coach gave me the bunt sign and I was looking for it. The guy left in up in a place where I could get it right by him, we got the run on it, so all is good.”

A fielder’s choice and a wild pitch the following at bat allowed a pair of runs to score for the Ridgemen, giving them a 5-1 lead through three innings.

The Nitros re-loaded the bases on a hit-by-a-pitch and a single, allowing sophomore Jonathan Carratala (Bloomfield College) to single home a run and then another to score on another hit-by-a-pitch.

The Ridgemen got another out and looked to get through the inning, but Tracy had other plans, singling home an additional two runs to put the Nitros up 8-5.  Tracy went 3-for-4 with two RBI for the Nitros.

“The nine inning game, you’re never really out of it,” Tracy said. “[I was] just trying to put the ball in play hard, let the ball fall where it goes.”

The Ridgemen were able to mount a comeback, loading the bases with two outs in the seventh inning. Senior Christian Bitar (Regis University) took advantage of the opportunity, doubling to drive in two runs and make it a one run game yet again.

“I’ve been struggling the first couple games. It all just came down to getting comfortable up there,” Bitar said. “That at bat I was just looking to drive something. Every time I step up to the plate it’s barrel the ball up really. [I] got a pitch that I could handle and did something with it.”

But, that is a as close as the Ridgemen would come, as the comeback fell short and the Nitros secured the victory.

“Honestly, I’m not disappointed with it at all,” Ridgemen head coach Justin Dillard said. “Like I told them, we had one half-inning that got away from us and there’s a reason for it. So at this point in the season, we have guys we are trying to stretch out as starters, Brownie is one of them, so we knew he was going past his pitch limit that he’s done so far this year. So he got himself tired.”

Sophomore Matthew Schneider (Marymount University) pitched two-and-one-third innings, allowing one walk and striking out two in relief for the Nitros.

Freshman Dylan Brister (Cuyahoga Community College) and senior Sean Masiakiewicz (Cedarville University) combined to provide two scoreless innings of no hits, one walk and two strikeouts for the Ridgemen.

The Ridgemen drop to 0-4, while the Nitros improve to 2-2.

The Ridgemen will next play Friday at Basket Road Field, hosting the Olean Oilers at 7 p.m.

The Nitros will take on the Cortland Crush on Thursday at 5 p.m. at home.

June 4th Game Recap

Senior Chris Wastchak (California University of Pennsylvania) went 1-for-3 with three RBI and a run scored as the Olean Oilers beat the Rochester Ridgemen 9-3 in New York Collegiate Baseball League action at Basket Road Field.

“You get out there and go at it,” Oilers head coach Jay Weitzel said. “It’s a good win. [We] played good [and] got good pitching.”

Sophomore Cameron Weinberger (University of Florida) also contributed to the Oilers cause, throwing eight innings and allowing three runs (all unearned) on six hits with 10 strikeouts.

“I was just really trying to pound the zone,” Weinberger said. “I thought my fastball was moving and I just tried to get ahead.”

The Ridgemen sent senior Tanner Pruett (Crown College) to the hill to start, getting six-and-two-thirds innings and five runs, five hits and four walks surrendered from the left hander.

“[I] had a good catcher back there behind the plate,” Pruett said. “Towards the end I got a little tired. Like I said, [the] defense did well and the catcher back there, gives me confidence.”

The scoring began in the second inning as the Ridgemen took control early.

After two quick outs to open the inning, senior TJ Lanning II (ASA College) and junior Connor Dunn (University of Puget Sound) keep the inning going with singles. Freshman Trevor Cho (St. Cloud State) wasted no time taking advantage of the opportunity, slapping a single to score Lanning and get the Ridgemen on the board.

“I just wanted to be aggressive,” Cho said. “First pitch was a ball and it was a fastball. I was sitting fastball on the next pitch, it was a little outside but it was still a strike, so I swung, put a nice swing on it and we scored.”

Freshman Jonathan Sabino (Coppin State University) and junior Joshua Parks (University of Chicago) would follow with an RBI double and RBI single, respectively, to put the Ridgemen up 3-0 after two.

However, in the fourth inning, the Oilers chipped into the Ridgemen lead and sparked the offense with one swing. Wastchak, who had a long fly out to right field in his first at bat, stepped to the plate with one out in the fourth. He then proceeded to square up a hanging curveball from Pruett and dispensed it over the right-centerfield wall for a solo home run.

“I saw him the first at bat and I know he was throwing all that slide stuff,” Wastchak said. “I saw on (sophomore Jacob) Burlingame (Canisius College), he struck him out with that slider in, so I was looking for something like that on me. On that first pitch out, I could hear him (the catcher) move out, then I could hear him move in on me. I was looking for something in, I saw it and drove it.”

But the Oilers were not done, as sophomore Isaac Porter (St. Bonaventure University) singled home a run in the sixth to put the Oilers down one.

However, it would be the seventh inning which proved the difference. Pruett picked up two quick outs and it appeared it would be smooth sailing through the seventh. The Oilers had other ideas, getting two runners on and setting up sophomore Alex Amos (University of Pittsburgh) for a game-tying single.

But the run scoring was not over, as the next batter worked a walk to load the bases. Two more walks brought in two more runs and the Oilers left the top of the seventh leading 5-3.

The Oilers would add four insurance runs in the eighth inning on a single from sophomore Jacob Miknis (St. Bonaventure University), a bases-loaded hit by a pitch for Burlingame, sacrifice groundout from Wastchak and, finally, a wild pitch.

The Ridgemen were set down 1-2-3 in both the eighth and ninth, ending the game.

“I thought Tanner threw the ball really well. He gave us a chance to win,” Ridgemen coach Mitchell Holland said. “Overall it was encouraging.”

The Ridgemen fall to 0-3 on the season, while the Oilers get their first win of the season at 1-2.

The Ridgemen’s next game will be Tuesday at 6 p.m. on the road against the Cortland Crush.

The Oilers will next play on Monday at home at 10:30 a.m. against the Genesee Rapids.

Opening Day Game Recap

Written by Mikael Desanto

Junior Alexander Ferlenda (St. Bonaventure University) went 2-for-4 with two RBIs as the Syracuse Salt Cats defeated the Rochester Ridgemen 3-1 in 13 innings Saturday night at Basket Road Field in New York Collegiate Baseball League action. The game was the Ridgemen’s home opener.

“Tonight we went on all aspects. We hit a little bit, we pitched, made some plays and we came out ahead in the end,” Salt Cats head coach Mike Martinez said.

The Salt Cats also benefited from the performance of redshirt sophomore Mathew Nerz (Kansas State), who went 3-for-4 with one run scored.

On the mound for the Salt Cats was sophomore Patrick Maybach (Salve Regina University). Maybach threw five innings for the Salt Cats, allowing one run on four hits and one walk with seven strikeouts.

“Just getting ahead and competing with your off-speed pitches really helped,” Maybach said. “Just keeping them off-balance helped out.”

The Ridgemen countered with sophomore Josh Stella (Hillsdale College) and got four innings of no runs, not hits and one walk with four strikeouts in the start. However, Stella was forced to leave the game after taking a line drive of the elbow.

“He just took a ball on the outside of his throwing elbow, so it’s swollen up pretty good,” Ridgemen head coach Justin Dillard said. “He should be fine. We’ve got ice on it, so once the inflammation goes down, which on regular day’s rest, I’m assuming he’ll be fine.”

The night’s scoring kicked off in the second inning with the Ridgemen striking first. In the bottom half, sophomore Seth Hagan (Centre College) lead off with a double, after working a 2-0 count. Senior, and Ridgemen veteran, Casey Claflin (Shawnee State University) followed up by slicing the ball down the right field line into an open space, as the right fielder was playing closer to right-center. This allowed Claflin reach second with a stand-up double, while Hagan came around to score, putting the Ridgemen up 1-0.

“[I] figured he would try to come in and away, we saw he started throwing a good changeup away, so I didn’t want to get to the changeup. I wanted to hit him early,” Claflin said. “I was thinking ‘just anything to the right side.’ He left one up and away. I tried to stay within myself, not get too big, basically hit it right at the second baseman, hit a line drive over his head.”

The two teams then engaged in a pitching and defensive duel, and the Ridgemen’s lead held up until the top half of the seventh inning.

The seventh inning opened up with back-to-back base hits for the Salt Cats, a double for redshirt senior Shannon Baker (Indiana Purdue Fort Wayne) and a single for Nerz, putting runners on first and second. After a fielder’s choice got Baker out at third, but kept runners on first and second for the Salt Cats, Ferlenda stepped up and singled, bringing home Nerz to tie the game.

“I knew that I was swinging a hot bat in BP (batting practice) and I felt really good today,” Ferlenda said. “So I was just trying to get a fastball either in or out because I drive it on the outer part of the plate or pull the ball. I got the pitch, so I just took a hack at it and got the result I wanted.”

The Ridgemen and Salt Cats then dueled through the eighth and ninth innings, sending the game to extra innings.

During extra innings, each team got its chances, beginning in the 11th when the Salt Cats got a runner to third with two outs thanks to an error and a wild pitch. However, the Ridgemen worked out of the inning with a strikeout in the next at-bat.

The Ridgemen followed by getting a runner to third in the 12th inning in the form of senior TJ Lanning II (ASA College), who doubled and then advanced on a balk. But back-to-back swinging strikeouts ended the opportunity.

The Salt Cats finally broke through in the 13th, loading the bases after junior Tim Gorton (Eastern University) was hit by a pitch, Baker walked and Nerz singled. Junior Justin Clark (Lesley University) then hit one to the shortstop, who threw to second to begin a double play, but Clark reached first and the go-ahead run scored.

“It was my second or third time I had faced that pitcher,” Clark said. “I knew that he was working in with the fastball [and] away with the slider, so I was looking at jumping on a fastball early, getting something in the air. [It] kind of tailed away from me a little bit and I was just able to stay with it and punch it to the left side. The shortstop made a great play to keep it in the infield, but I’m just Mat Nerz was just able to have a great slide and break it up  so that we could come home with the win.”

Ferlenda completed the days scoring with a single, bringing home another run before the innings ended.

The Ridgemen would get a runner on in the bottom half of the 13th, but nothing more as the Salt Cats claimed the win.

The Salt Cats move to 2-1 on the season, while the Ridgemen fall to 0-2.

Sophomore Keven Mackintosh (Lamar Community College) tossed six innings in relief for the Ridgemen, surrendering two runs on four hits and one walk.

“Usually I’m a starter, so I just treat it as a start,” Mackintosh said. “That’s usually my plan and everything going through that with school just did the job for me. It helped me be a lot more mentally focused and mentally tough.”

Senior Kyle Sanford (Western Connecticut State University) also came in for relief for the Salt Cats, going four innings and letting up no runs, one hit and one walk with six strikeouts.

The Ridgemen will next play Sunday at 5 p.m. against the Olean Oilers at Basket Road Field.

The Salt Cats next game will also be Sunday, as they take on the Syracuse Spartans at Onondaga Stadium at 7 p.m.

Rolls hurls Ridgemen past G-Twins

WEBSTER, N.Y. — Josh Rolls (Midland Lutheran) went the distance, throwing all nine innings while striking out seven and only walking one, and the Rochester Ridgemen lived to fight another day in the Western Division playoff race with a 4-0 win over the second seed-to be Geneva Twins in New York Collegiate Baseball League action at Basket Road Field Thursday night.

“[Geneva was] going to have some fun tonight, and they did, but we had to take care of our business and we did,” Ridgemen head coach Joe Shallenberger said.

The Ridgemen had a balanced offensive effort, with three players grabbing RBI and Colin Winn (Santa Ana) putting together a multi-hit night, the only player on the home side to do so.

Ridgemen complete wild comeback, stay in playoff hunt

WEBSTER, N.Y. — How wild can postseason races be? Well, heading into the top of the ninth at Basket Road Field Wednesday night, the Genesee Rapids held a 5-3 advantage over the Rochester Ridgemen. About an hour and a half south of Rochester, the Olean Oilers held a 4-3 lead over the Hornell Dodgers.

Should the results have held, the Ridgemen would have been eliminated from postseason contention.

Of course, because this is a postseason race, that was not going to stay. Hornell came back and won 5-4, and Ryan O’Hearn (Hillsdale) grounded into a fielder’s choice that should have been a double play, but a throwing error allowed Aaron Vallance (Wayland Baptist) to score the winning run and give Rochester a 6-5 victory over Genesee, completing a wild final two innings that saw both teams put up three spots.

Big eighth lifts Rapids over Ridgemen

HOUGHTON, N.Y.—The Genesee Rapids’ playoff chances are slim, but there is still hope after they came away with a 5-1 victory over the Rochester Ridgemen Tuesday night at the Kerr-Pegula Athletic Complex in New York Collegiate Baseball League action.

After six scoreless innings, Rochester struck in the sixth with a run from Ryan O’Hearn (Hillsdale) off a Genesee error. The lead didn’t hold for long as the Rapids offense found some much needed life in the eighth inning and scored five runs; three more than they had in their previous 22 innings of baseball.

Dan Crozier (Cazenovia), Ryan Dickt (Virginia-Wise), Austin Hauck (Sienna Heights) and Will Lucas (Akron) recorded one RBI each in the inning.
