Back when the sun was still out, C-NS made it 14 consecutive wins by going to Oswego and steadily working on the Buccaneers before a big finish created a 13-1 romp, the team’s seventh game this spring where it scored double-digit runs, and third in a row.
It started modestly enough, C-NS staking itself to a 3-0 lead in the third inning on Oswego ace Ryan Lavner, but it took control with three runs in the top of the fifth, knocking out Lavner. Then it knocked around three Bucs relievers in a seven-run seventh inning.
Hamilton and Paul Ludden both went deep for home runs, Hamilton also doubling as he and Ludden got two RBIs apiece. Owen Dziados had two hits and a team-best three RBIs, while Vince Mallaro also drove in two runs. Mike Mento, Brandon Kapcinski and Justin Teague had one RBI apiece as Vinciguerra parlayed a walk and single into three runs scored.
Sophomore pitcher Steven Theetge’s stellar season continued, too, as he went the route and held Oswego to four hits while recording 12 strikeouts.
With the weekend’s weather interruptions, C-NS would resume action Monday, at Fayetteville-Manlius, the last hurdle before Wednesday night’s highly-anticipated showdown with defending Class AA champion Baldwinsville at Gillette Field and a Thursday trip to Liverpool.
