Cooperstown 11, Sherburne-Earlville 2
SHERBURNE – For the second straight game, Sherburne-Earlville found itself on the wrong side of a triple play as Cooperstown cruised past the Marauders Wednesday.
Similar to the triple play in Monday’s loss, S-E’s attempted bunt with runners on first and second was scooped by Cooperstown’s pitcher (Jared Hotaling) for the first out. The runners on second and first also failed to get back to the bag safely as outs two and three were subsequently recorded.
Cooperstown’s offense had little trouble putting runs on the boad over the first four innings. A misplayed flyball in the fourth inning with the bases loaded scored three runs. Hotaling added a two-run homer, and Kyle Liner had three hits for Cooperstown.
“It was really windy today, and we probably had four or five misplays in the outfield that cost us five runs,” said S-E coach Brian Hicks.
Jake Bohnert had three hits for S-E and Carter Cole finished with two hits.
