Ironically, as J-D was losing, CBA was smashing Fulton 19-0. The Brothers put together a 12-run outburst in the top of the seventh inning to break it open.
Justin Brennan, with a home run, supplied the biggest blow, adding a career-best five RBIs. Webb Little doubled and drove in three runs, while Andrew Gacek had two doubles and two RBIs.
Camillo Spinoso, Mason Garlatti, Sam Little and Tommy Benz each drove in one run as Brad McCaullife pitched three innings for the win and Tim Pierret, in four innings, only allowed one hit.
CBA kept this up Thursday in a 13-0 shutout of the same Ludden team that had just conquered J-D. It did so by waiting out pitcher Cory Poplawski until the fifth, when it scored five times to break open a 1-0 game and, for good measure, tacked on five more runs in the sixth.
Emmett Dunn, who pitched five innings, and Pierret combined on a two-hit shutout. At the plate, Spinoso had three hits, scored four runs and earned three RBIs. Garlatti and Tim Corapi each drove in two runs, with Gacek and Mike Trasolini each earning one RBI.
Yet even this win streak got halted on Friday at St. Denis Field, where CBA lost, 10-4, to the same Homer side it beat 6-0 two weeks earlier.
This time around, the Trojans figured out the Brothers’ pitching to the tune of 17 hits as it broke out of a 3-3 tie with two runs in the fourth and four more runs in the top of the fifth. Jake Hayes, who went four-for-four and scored four runs, and Jake Casey, who had three hits and four RBIs, led Homer’s assault, while CBA, in defeat, got two RBIs apiece from Garlatti and Brennan.
East Syracuse-Minoa got swept in a doubleheader against Cortland. The first game went 9-0 as the Purple Tigers took charge with five runs in the fourth inning off Joel Clark, who took the loss. The Spartans managed just three hits off Cortland ace Brian Hughes, who struck out 12.
