Though it took most of the week, the Baldwinsville baseball team returned to the win column when its offense showed a bit of a pulse.
It came during last Thursday's 5-4 win over Corcoran, but even this win required quite a comeback.
Leading 1-0, the Bees saw the Cougars get four runs off pitcher Alex Riley in the bottom of the fifth inning as brothers Steve and Jamie Boronczyk drove in those runs.
Somehow, B'ville shook this off, then got to Corcoran ace Steve Boronczyk for two runs in the sixth inning and two runs in the top of the seventh to sneak back in front.
John Feola had three of the Bees' nine hits, including a double, and earned two RBIs. Kevin Roy also drove in two runs. Scott Redmond, pitching in relief of Riley, blanked Corcoran down the s
The Bees had just one real slip-up in last Monday's game against Fayetteville-Manlius, yet it led to a 2-1 loss to the Hornets.
Jeff Schuster pitched for B'ville, only allowing a pair of second-inning runs. Schuster and Bo Watson blanked F-M the rest of the way, but all the Bees could manage was a third-inning tally and five hits off Joe Sinopoli, who earned the win.
Once again, B'ville's offense could not do much on Wednesday afternoon, kept off the board in a 7-0 loss to Cicero-North Syracuse.
Watson pitched until the third inning, when the Northstars used four runs (most of them from Steve Salamone's home run) to break the game open and forced John Feola into a long relief stint.
Meanwhile, the Bees had just three hits, unable to solve CNS ace Grant Nadeau during his complete-game shutout.
