NORWICH – The Chenango Hellcats Legion baseball team grabbed the game for their own late in the game over Binghamton Post 80, winning 3-2 on July 11.
“Did you see that catch? That was a gap shot, if that center fielder (Hellcats Jonathan Liuzzo) didn’t have that speed to make that play, it's a tied ballgame. Liuzzo's catch was simply great,” said Hellcats head coach Jason Miller.
It was in fact Jonathan Liuzzo, who made the diving catch in center field off of a deep bomb, who effectively secured the final out of the game, ending any possible comeback in the seventh inning.
The game would see shutdown performance's on the mound for both sides. Hellcats Nate Scheer pitched the entire seven innings of the contest, tossing out 98 pitches. Scheer would allow only three hits in those 98 pitches, as he recorded eight strikeouts and allowed only three walks.
