Oxford 11, B-G 6
OXFORD – Coming off back-to-back lopsided losses, Oxford finished out the week on the upswing beating Bainbridge-Guilford on Friday.
Locked in a 1-1 tie, Oxford scored six in the third inning. Andrew Golden’s sacrifice fly scored the go-ahead run, four runs scored on passed balls or errors, and Krys Escobar added an RBI single.
“We put the ball in play, and they got a little wild in the third,” said Oxford coach Chris Palmer. “It was nice to be on the other side of that.”
Jamie Smolcnop hit a two-run homer in the fourth for Oxford to support Golden, who won his first varsity game. Golden allowed one earned run in six innings striking out seven and allowing two hits.
Kyle Ferrington had two hits and three stolen bases in the win, and Escobar was 2-for-3 with two runs scored.
Cody Lake led B-G with three hits, and Billy Holden had a two-run double in the seventh.

G-MU 7, Richfield Springs 4
G-MU 13, Remsen 9 (finals)
RICHFIELD SPRINGS – The Raiders took advantage of three Remsen errors in the first inning to score five runs, and after a five-run lead dwindled to one, tacked on six runs in the fifth thanks to four more Remsen errors in Saturday’s Richfield Springs Tournament title game.
“They were able to come back to within 6-5, but we weren’t worried because we know we can hit,” said G-MU coach Jim Johnson.
Brendan Zucchi, Corin Todd, and Andrew Delmar all had two hits in the win. Zucchi and Todd put up two RBI apiece.
Alex Schmidt went seven innings for the win, and struck out the final two batters in the seventh to cap the tourney.
Friday, G-MU recovered from a 3-0 deficit to win its opening game against host Richfield Springs.
Zucchi’s double drove in two runs to tie the game in the third. Zucchi then had a steal of home for the go-ahead run. Ian Edwards added an RBI triple one inning later.
The Raiders fell behind by three committing four errors, and Richfield Springs put all four of its runs on the board in the opening three innings without a hit.
Delmar struck out eight for the victory. “The errors were plays we probably should have made, but Andrew was able to settle down and we played better as the game went on,” Johnson said.
G-MU (6-1) plays Milford today.
