Norwich 6, Chenango Forks 3

CHENANGO FORKS – Norwich grabbed the lead with four runs in the top of the sixth, and completed a season sweep of Chenango Forks Wednesday.

Colby Griffin was 4-for-4 with three RBI to lead the Tornado, and he added a key RBI hit in the sixth. Brendan McInerney and John Yacano also collected ribbies in the sixth.

“The middle and the bottom of the lineup did what it needed to do,” said Norwich coach John Martinson. “They were patient at the plate and worked the count.”

Justin Lindenthaler pitched 6 1-3 innings for the victory, and Cody Barnes recorded the final two outs for the save. “Justin was very efficient and tonight was our first error-free game,” Martinson said. “Justin was solid, and Cody was able to come in and put the game away.”

Unatego 4, Greene 1

GREENE – Unatego pitcher Quinn Barnhardt was not dominant, but he was effective.

Barnhardt struck out six and walked six in no-hitting Greene Wednesday afternoon.

The Spartans scored all of their runs in the opening inning, the lone RBI coming on Kellen Komenda’s sacrifice fly. The other three runs came on passed balls and wild pitches.

“We just didn’t get good swings (at Barnhardt),” said Greene coach Steve Burghardt, who applauded his own pitcher, Josh Hurlburt. “(Hurlburt) was fabulous the last six innings, he just wasn’t with it in the first inning.”

Hurlburt gave up just five hits striking out seven and walking six in a complete game.

COPES CORNERS – Cherry Valley-Springfield pitchers Andrew Bosc and Alec Denninger struck out 10 and combined on a no-hitter Wednesday afternoon at G-MU.

“They have an experienced team and we are pretty young,” said G-MU coach Rick Mohrein. “We faced two good pitchers today, and they have a good team behind them. We put some balls in play, it was just one of those nights.”

Sherburne-Earlville 6, Canastota 0

SHERBURNE - Mike Wilson tossed a three-hit shutout for Sherburne-Earlville, who moved its record to 3-1 in Center State Conference Division One play on Wednesday.

Wilson struck out seven, walked two, and was backed by solid defense.

Cole Hodges finished with three RBI hitting a two-run single in the second and adding an RBI single in the third as the Marauders constructed a 5-0 lead to support Wilson. Mick Khoury and Wilson contributed RBI doubles in the win.

“We did leave a few runners on base, but the kids are staying back and hitting the ball well,” said S-E coach Brian Hicks. “We played great defense tonight. We had new kids all over the infield to cover for three starters who were out...it was a good win for us.”

The Marauders play at Ilion today.
