Chenango Valley 5, Norwich 2
TOWN OF FENTON – Chenango Valley hurler John Santiago pitched six shutout innings as the Warriors shaded the Tornado Thursday afternoon in STAC baseball.
Derek Stupski had two doubles and two RBI for CV, and the second through fourth hitters accounted for six of the Warriors’ eight hits. “That part of their lineup was tough, and Santiago pitched a tremendous game for them,” said Norwich coach John Martinson. “We had had trouble getting on base, and they didn’t hurt themselves defensively.”
Tim Clark had an RBI single in the seventh for Norwich, who play at Oneonta today.

Harpursville 4, Greene 2
HARPURSVILLE – Harpursville answered Greene’s two-run fourth with four runs in the bottom half of the frame to saddle the Trojans with their second loss this week.
Ben Andrews had an RBI double and Derek Lindow an RBI single for the Hornets, who scored their other runs on an error and a wild pitch.
Greene loaded the bases and scored one run in the top half of the frame, but failed to hit the jackpot with its best offensive opportunity of the game. “We didn’t hit the ball solidly most of the day, and it’s disappointing we didn’t score more in the fourth,” said Greene coach Dave Gorton. “Corey (Breck) pitched a nice game, he just got a couple pitches up in the fourth inning.”
Don Amell and John Carlin split Greene’s four hits evenly. The Trojans (6-3) host Delhi today.

B-G 5, Deposit 4
DEPOSIT – B-G catcher Ray Neubauer threw out Deposit’s baserunner with a strike to Kyle Davy for the final out of the game giving B-G a one-run win, while ending the Lumberjacks’ last-inning threat.
Deposit had Tyler Vandermark at the plate when the final out was recorded. Vandermark had hit the ball sharply in his three previous at-bats, but didn’t get a chance to tie the game. “We had anticipated they would try to steal and put the runner in scoring position for Vandermark,” said B-G coach Steve Rice. “I don’t know if we would have pitched around Vandermark, but we were fortunate at the end.”
