WG baseball sweeps quartet of foes

Having secured a winning mark for 2010, the West Genesee baseball team could now look forward to what could happen during this week's Section III Class AA playoffs.

WG reached double digits in the win column during last Monday's game against Oswego (made up from a May 11 rainout), leading all the way in a 9-2 decision over the Buccaneers.

Against Oswego pitcher Adam Clawson, the Wildcats struck for two runs in both the second and third innings, then chased him with a four-run outburst in the fourth that made it 8-2.

Brian Burns had three of WG's 12 hits, as he and Greg Wadach both doubled and earned a pair of RBIs. Justin Capella, Eric Spencer, Erik Krohl, Nick Woytan and Mike Sgroi each drove in one run as Capella and Krohl scored two runs apiece.

On the pitching side, Matt Naton went most of the way, as he and Burns combined to hold the Bucs to five hits and a pair of runs, both of them scored in the fourth inning.

Hosting Corcoran a day later, the Wildcats kept up its good play, as Spencer and Turner Parry led the charge in a 7-1 win over the Cougars.

Spencer went two-for-three at the plate, smashing a home run, scoring twice and earning three RBIs as WG got all of its runs in the second, third and fourth innings and never trailed. Burns and Naton also drove in runs as Krohl scored twice and Woytan got a pair of hits.

Meanwhile, Parry was a steady, strong presence on the mound, the right-hander limiting Corcoran to five hits, one walk and a single third-inning run while earning five strikeouts.

WG's league schedule concluded Thursday, at Central Square, as it again got stellar pitching, this time from Spencer, and beat the Red Hawks 8-1 to improve its regular-season mark to 12-6.
