Oneonta 13, Norwich 0
ONEONTA – Oneonta received a sterling effort on the mound from hurler Mark Giallanzo, and the ‘Jackets’ offense scored early and often in a shutout of the Purple Tornado Wednesday.
Giallanzo pitched a one-hit shutout, the lone base knock for the Tornado coming from senior Dennis Oralls.
Ben Moxley went 4-for-5 with five RBI to lead Oneonta. David Wright, Mike Calkins, and Zach Pidgeon drove in two runs apiece. “Oneonta hit the ball very well, and you can see why they have been a perennial power,” said Norwich coach John Martinson.
Norwich hosts Chenango Valley Friday.

Sidney 10, Oxford 6
OXFORD – Sidney claimed the lead with five runs in the third inning to erase a three-run deficit in Wednesday’s victory at Oxford.
In the third, Dylan Van Pelt reached on an infield error that scored Jon Wingate with the tying run, and Nate MacDonald’s triple plated the go-ahead run. “Sidney hit the ball hard today, that’s for sure,” said Oxford coach Chris Palmer. “Six of their hits went for extra bases, and they had several loud outs.”
Adam Pierson had two hits and three runs for Oxford, and Andrew Golden added two hits and two RBI in the loss.

Morris 6, G-MU 4
COPES CORNERS – Morris pushed across four runs in the top of the fifth to take the lead from G-MU in Wednesday’s road victory.
The Raiders committed three of their five errors in the fifth, and Kyle Doyle’s two-run triple gave the Mustangs the lead for keeps. “They took advantage of the mistakes that we made,” said G-MU coach Rick Mohrein. “With the exception of that one inning, we played well. We just have to play seven good innings, not six.”
Dan Primrose, Tim French, and Codi Mabie had two hits for G-MU (3-10), who host a doubleheader against Laurens Friday.

Sauquoit Valley 6, Sherburne-Earlville 3
SHERBURNE - Sauquoit Valley pitcher Aaron LoPiccolo bested the Marauders for the second time this season allowing six hits in Wednesday’s victory.
LoPiccolo helped his own cause with two hits and two RBIs, and shortstop Rob Slivinski added an RBI triple. Slivinski was a vacuum up the middle, said S-E coach Brian Hicks. “(Slivinski) made at least three or four unbelievable plays tonight,” Hicks said. “He and LoPiccolo were definitely the difference.”
