Unadilla Valley 16, Delhi 1 (5 innings)
NEW BERLIN – Unadilla Valley regrouped after a lopsided defeat Monday to improve to 2-0 on the season in league play.
Kristen Elliott allowed a single hit in the fourth inning and struck out eight for the win. Sarah Talbot hit a three-run homer in the third for UV and finished 3-for-4 with four RBI. Breanne White had two hits, three RBI, and three runs scored, and Hannah Johnson went 2-for-3. “We talked a lot last night (after the loss) that this is what we needed to do – to turn things around,” said UV coach Eileen Lawyer. “They were aggressive on the base paths and hit the ball well.”

G-MU 16, Franklin 14
COPES CORNERS – G-MU stormed past Franklin with a five-run sixth inning to even its record on the season with a second win in as many days.
Katie Bakhuizen hit a go-ahead two-run triple for the Raiders in the sixth to finish 3-for-4 with four RBI. Ashlea Osborne added three hits for G-MU, who pounded out a season-high 18 hits.
The Raiders trailed early giving up back-to-back five-run innings to the Purple Devils in the first and second innings. Katie Barnhardt led the losers’ attack with three RBI.
“I guess you would call it beginning-of-the-game jitters,” said GMU coach Tina Cole. “Franklin game out and hit the ball hard, and I don’t think we were ready for it. Marissa (Finch) settled down on the mound, and the girls started to make better plays behind her.”
G-MU hosts Schenevus today.

Greene 3, Sidney 2
GREENE – Greene’s bottom-of-the-seventh rally yielded three runs in a come-from-behind victory over Sidney Tuesday.
The Trojans managed three of their six hits against Sidney flame-thrower Danielle Gravel, the last a two-run game-winning single by Stephanie Stahl to score Emily Pierce and Kayla Sevey.
Gravel had 15 strikeouts for Sidney, while Greene’s winning pitcher Megan McDermott fanned 13 and allowed six Sidney hits. “It was definitely a pitcher’s duel,” said Greene coach Kim Huson. “I think our kids were finally able to relax at the plate in the seventh.”
Sevey had two hits for the Trojans (3-4).
