Seton 5, Norwich 1

BINGHAMTON– In an

evenly matched game at

NYSEG Stadium, with only

one error, two future college

pitchers battled as Seton

overcame Norwich.

Seton pitcher Michael

Korchak threw a complete

game, striking out 13, allowing

only four hits and one

earned run, he is committed

to play at Bucknell next

year.. Norwich ace, Cody

Barnes had nine strikeouts in

five innings and allowed just

three hits, he is committed to

play for Division II



Lemoyne next season.

Defending Class C State

Champions, Seton, scored

five runs on five hit by moving

their baserunners, stealing

four bases on Thursday.

Barnes gave up his hits early

in the game and walked

three batters as Seton scored

on a passed ball and a balk.

“We played solid baseball,

obviously we want to win

but we’re happy with the

way we played. I was happy,

the stuff we did wrong is fixable,”

said Norwich varsity

baseball head coach Rich

Turnbull.

Seton’s Neil McCormack

went 3-3 with a double and a

triple, two runs scored and

two RBI. He will be Barnes’

teammate next year at

LeMoyne. Norwich plays at

NYSEG Stadium annually

and the size of the outfield

lead to some spectacular

defensive plays. “It’s a lot

different when your playing

on a Minor League field,”

said Turnbull. Derek

Manwarren was positioned

in right center when a looper

into right field had him on

his horse. He cough the ball

on the run and collided with

the fence, that was the first

of two pretty plays in the

outfield. Centerfielder Josh

Haynes made a harrowing

diving catch in right-center,

the runner did not believe he

would make the play and

advanced to second without

tagging up. Haynes popped

up and gunned him out at

first in the bottom of the

sixth inning. The Tornado
