Afton 7, Greene 4
AFTON – Afton defeated Greene for the second time in as many years jumping out to a 6-0 lead after three innings.
Mike Muller had 10 strikeouts to earn the win, and was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate highlighted by a two-run homer in the opening inning. Muller scattered nine Greene hits, five of those of the extra-base variety. “He needed those 10 strikeouts, if he didn’t have them, Greene would have scored a lot more runs,” said Afton coach Ron Rapp.
Brendan Kinne had three hits for Greene, while Nic Puglisi and Brian Day had two hits apiece.
Afton plays at Unadilla Valley Wednesday.

Unatego 11, B-G 7
BAINBRIDGE – Down four runs after two innings, Unatego’s offense began to click, in large part due to B-G’s battles with pitching wildness.
The Bobcats issued nine base on balls during the contest, said head coach Pete Mansheffer, and six of those free passes led to runs. “They also had some key hits with runners in scoring position,” Mansheffer said.
Dillon Maxson led Unatego with three hits, two RBI and two stolen bases.
The Bobcats’ defeat spoiled a career day from lefty Eric Oefelein. Oefelein had three hits including two solo homers and a double finishing with two runs scored and two RBI.
B-G (0-2) is at Greene today.
