It was all CBA from that point, though, as it chased Hughes with another five-run rally in the bottom of the fifth and tacked on five more runs in the sixth to get clear.
Twice, Garlatti went deep for home runs, adding up to six RBIs, while Little also went deep and doubled as part of a three-for-four effort that led to seven RBIs. Camillo Spinoso and Tim Corapi each scored three times and drove in single runs as Mike Trasolini doubled and scored three runs.
Andrew Gacek was valuable, too, pitching two scoreless innings in relief of Emmett Dunn, who won despite giving up a home run to Caden Giroux and two doubles to Hughes.
Right before the rematch with Cortland, CBA first had to make a late comeback against Fulton to pull out a 7-5 victory over the Red Raiders.
Fulton pitcher Peter Ravesi did an effective job silencing the Brothers’ bats after giving up a pair of first-inning runs. That left CBA trailing 5-2 going to the bottom of the fifth.
A run in that inning made it 5-3, but the Brothers really got to Ravesi in the sixth, erupting for four runs to reclaim the lead. Sam Little led the attack, finishing with a double, triple, three runs scored and two RBIs, while Trasolni scored twice, joining Little and Connor Gollegly with single RBIs.
Starting pitcher Mike Lanzafame struggled, but Tommy Benz was sensational in relief, giving up just one run in four innings of work and striking out five to earn the victory.
