Norwich 9, Seton Catholic Central 1
NORWICH – Norwich avenged a weekend loss to the Saints getting a complete-game three-hit victory from senior pitcher Mike Moon, and also won for the first time in six outings this season.
“Mike has improved tremendously the past two seasons, and he has great control of his fastball and change-up,” said Norwich coach John Martinson. “His pitching was tremendous, and our defense did not make any fielding errors.”
Moon finished with seven strikeouts and one walk in holding a Seton club that scored 12 runs in a five-run victory over NHS last Saturday.
Moon, Tim Clark, Richie Bonney, and Brock Kossman had two hits for NHS (1-5), and Josh Borfitz added a two-run double in the third inning.
Norwich (1-5) plays at Chenango Valley Wednesday.

Oxford 13, Hancock 6
OXFORD – Oxford leveled its season log taking advantage of Hancock’s mistakes in Monday’s MAC divisional contest.
Tom Gould, Eddie Grundner, and Brett Trask all finished with two hits and three RBI for Oxford (4-4). Trask clipped a two-run triple in the sixth to up the Blackhawks’ lead to seven runs.
“They threatened a lot and I didn’t feel comfortable, even after we scored five runs in the fifth and three more in the sixth,” said Oxford coach Chris Palmer. “A seven-run lead might not be enough the way they were hitting.”
Trask came on to pitch a scoreless seventh to support winning pitcher P.J. Hubman.

Sherburne-Earlville 7, Cooperstown 1
COOPERSTOWN – Sherburne-Earlville became the first team to not only defeat Cooperstown, but score a run on the Redskins in Monday’s game at Doubleday Field.
Caleb Brown pitched a complete-game victory striking out seven and not walking a batter. Nate Kline had two hits including a three-run double in the fifth with two outs. “We had timely hitting and just put the ball in play,” said S-E skipper Brian Hicks. “This game tells us we are right where we should be. Early in the season, we had a couple losses where the ball just didn’t bounce our way.”
