Oxford 5, Unadilla Valley 3
OXFORD–A dramatic finish in Oxford end in defeat for Unadilla Valley and a save for the Blackhawk Kyle Crawford.
The Storm’s starter, Mason Alford, lead off the bottom of the seventh; down two, with a single.
Catcher Andrew Radke followed suit and after an Austin Taylor walk, the bases were loaded without an out.
When Brendan Brooker hit a medium range fly ball into center field, nobody though that it was the beginning of the end for UV... except for Cameron Heggie.
The Oxford center-fielder made and incredible catch and fired the baseball to senior catcher Matt Moore for a very close second out at the plate.
Closer Kyle Crawford worked Connor Pope into a ground out shortly after and the cold, rainy game had ended.
“The parity in the MAC this year is pretty decent... anybody can beat anybody. I take my hat off to Oxford,” said Unadilla Valley varsity baseball head coach Gary Alford.
Oxford plays Afton at home today and Unadilla Valley is at home against Deposit.

Bainbridge-Guilford 3, Greene 0
BAINBRIDGE–Zach Ouimet threw a gem Wednesday, striking out six and allowing only three hits in a complete game shutout over Greene.
Ouimet played jayvee as an eighth grader, Bainbridge-Guilford varsity baseball head coach Tim Mattingly brought him up as a freshman because he needed pitching support.
“He’s grown, gotten bigger and stronger,” Mattingly said, “ “He’s come into his own.”
“He threw a great game for us. He pounded the strike-zone, kept it low and really challenged the hitters all day,” he said.
B-G scored a run in each of the first three innings of the game.
In the first, Kyle Hanvey walked and stole second. Shawn Jones singled and with runners on the corners, Lucas Butcher hit into a fielder’s choice that scored Hanvey.
In the second, Mark Cordner lead off with a walk. The pitcher Ouimet walked and both runners advanced on a wild pitch.
Bobcat catcher Dylan Mondore then drove in Cordner.
“We had our opportunities with some walks and were able to push some runs across,” Mattingly said.
Kyle Hanvey lead off the third inning with a solo homerun, the last run of the night.
“...Clutch hits,” he said, “That was the difference.”
The Bobcats play the Sidney Warriors Friday in Oneonta.
