BAINBRIDGE – Harpursville won for the second time in as many nights against Chenango County opposition blanking Bainbridge-Guilford Tuesday.
Harpursville erupted for 12 runs in the fifth inning to put the game out of reach. The first two Hornets reached on errors to start the uprising. “We don’t commit those two errors to start the fifth, maybe things work out differently,” said B-G coach Tim Mattingly. “But we have to hit the ball better. We had just five hits in the game.”
Austin Bauerle doubled twice for B-G, and Lucas Butcher also had two hits.
Jon Arnold and Jim Kelley led Harpursville with two hits apiece.
B-G hosts Unatego on Thursday.
