Mt. Markham 6, S-E 5
WEST WINFIELD – Sherburne-Earlville scored two runs in the seventh to force extra innings, but came up on the short side in an eight-inning loss to Mount Markham Thursday.
S-E rallied in the seventh as Mike Wilson and Cory Musician reached base safely. Mike Squires’ RBI groundout cut the margin to 5-4, and Musician came around to score on a dropped third strike.
In the eighth, S-E recorded just one out before a Mustangs single to right field with two runners in scoring position ended the game.
“There was a slight glimmer of S-E baseball for about three or four innings where we played really well,” said S-E coach Brian Hicks. “We just had three or four costly mistakes.”
Matt Piazzi had two hits – both doubles – and one RBI for S-E, and Musician scored two runs.
