NORWICH – Windsor regrouped from a five-run deficit to defeat the Purple Tornado Wednesday afternoon.

“We had a great start, but (Goetz, Windsor pitcher) did a nice job settling in,” said Norwich coach John Martinson. “They are a superb defensive club and well-rounded at the plate and in the field.”
Paddy Law had a three-run double in the opening inning for Norwich (2-8). Tim Clark, Richie Bonney, and Christian Hotaling added two hits apiece for NHS.

S-E 6, Sauquoit Valley 0
SAUQUOIT – Sherburne-Earlville won its seventh straight division game as starter Jake Sampson twirled a six-hit shutout victory Wednesday.
Sampson and Joe Moses led at the plate with 3-for-4 days, and Moses had two run-saving plays in right field to preserve the lead and the shutout.
He snagged a deep fly with two runners on in the third inning, then, after making a grab with the bases loaded in the fifth, threw a one-hopper to home to catch the SV baserunner for an inning-ending double play. “(Joe) probably saved us four runs today,” said S-E coach Brian Hicks.
Moses had a two-run double in the second inning to put S-E (7-0, 10-3) on the board. Sampson added two runs scored and an RBI.

DeRuyter 11, Otselic Valley 6
SOUTH OTSELIC – Otselic Valley lost for the first time in six games this season Wednesday at home.
The Vikings (5-1) fell behind 8-0 before two late-inning rallies made the final score respectable. Along the way, the OV defense was charged with seven errors.
“We just committed too many errors to give ourselves a chance,” said Vikings coach Dave Loomis. “DeRuyter is a good club and I’m pretty sure we can play with them. I just hope we can field the ball more soundly the next time.”
Jamin Selan had two RBI for OV, while Dave Cerasani finished 2-for-3.

Greene 4, Unatego 3
GREENE – Greene avenged a one-run loss to Unatego from earlier this season grabbing the lead in the third inning and hanging on for the win.
Brendan Kinne pitched five innings for the victory, and Paul King added two scoreless innings of relief for the save. “Our pitchers easily had their best game all season,” said Greene coach Dave Gorton. “And we played fantastic defense behind them. We feel we have nine legitimate hitters, so when we get this type of pitching and defense, we can play with anybody.”
