UV/GMU falls in regular season finale to Delhi
DELHI – The Storm of Unadilla Valley/Gilbertsville-Mount Upton reached the playoffs Wednesday with a win over the Walton Warriors, reaching the win amount needed with the 6-3 victory. UV/GMU fell behind the Delhi Bulldogs 10-1 early in Friday’s game before losing 10-2.
Due to two bad innings defensively, the host Bulldogs built a big lead and were able to hold off the Storm in the regular season finale.
UV/GMU took the lead early, tacking on the first run of the game in the top of the first because of Kyler Butts.
Butts scored on an error by the Delhi shortstop, coming in from third with the bases were loaded. The Storm batter was hit by a pitch during his lead-off at-bat and moved up the bases with a steal at second.
Teammate Andrew Jackson advanced Butts into scoring position with hard ground ball in the infield. Delhi’s Tyler Bruce threw Jackson out across the diamond as Butts moved to third.
Back-to-back walks were drawn by the Storm’s Cameron Osborne and Timmy Postma to fill the bases but a strikeout ended the offensive half of the frame for the visiting team.
