Norwich 4, Susquehanna Valley 3

NORWICH – Norwich gave up an early lead in its last game, and Wednesday, the Tornado rallied from an early deficit to earn their first win of the season.

Josh Whaley came on to pitch three innings for scoreless relief for the win. During that time, the Tornado tied the game with three runs in the bottom of the fifth, and scored the winning run in the sixth..

Josh Borfitz, Mackay Hotaling, and Whaley had single ribbies in the fifth to score Kyle Cashman, Lucas Follett, and Paddy Law respectively. In the sixth, Nick McCullough singled, stole second, moved to third on a flyout by Casey Edwards, and scored on Follett’s RBI triple.

McCullough went 2-for-3, and Follett also had two hits for the Tornado (1-2).

“We have to get rid of some of those errors, but it was really nice to see the bottom of our lineup come through at the plate tonight,” said Norwich coach John Martinson.

G-MU 19, Downsville 18

COPES CORNERS – G-MU won a slugfest over Downsville in a non-league game Wednesday afternoon.

“It was quite a game, and one of those I eventually expected to happen,” said G-MU coach Jim Johnson.

The Raiders’ offense was plentiful, and Andy Delmar’s five hits and four RBI led the way. Three of Delmar’s hits turned into triples. Corin Todd had four hits and two RBI and winning pitcher Jon Scofield finished with three hits and two RBI. Scofield came on to pitch in the third inning, and threw better with each ensuing inning, Johnson said. “It’s a win, and we pounded the ball again,” the G-MU mentor said. “None of our hits were really cheap ones.”

The Raiders (4-1) play Cherry Valley-Springfield on Friday.

B-G 18, Hancock 1

BAINBRIDGE – Looking for its first win of the season, Bainbridge-Guilford found it in a big way.

The Bobcats banged out 19 hits, and routed Hancock on Wednesday afternoon. Travis Colburn continued his hot hitting with a perfect 5-for-5 day with four runs scored and two RBI. Winning pitcher Cody Lake was 4-for-5 with three ribbies. “This is the team I’ve been waiting to see all season long,” said B-G coach Pete Mansheffer. “The hitting was infectious, and it went up and down the lineup.”

Paul Parsons added three hits, four RBI, and three runs scored for the Bobcats (1-7), and Lake allowed five hits and just a single run in the sixth inning. “This is the type of game you would like to bottle up and bring to the field every time,” Mansheffer said. “We played such good baseball tonight, and it was nice to see.”

B-G plays Afton on Friday.
