Onondaga, NY June 13, 2018: For the second time in three games, the Onondaga Flames allowed five runs in the 1st inning last night. However, this time around, the Flames caught fire for a comeback victory over divisional rival Syracuse Salt Cats. Onondaga got on the board in the 3rd inning thanks to a Jarrad Grossguth (Community College of Rhode Island ) solo home run. Two more runs came around to score to make it 5-3 Salt Cats in the 3rd. The score stayed the same until the 7th inning. After a single by Adam Gordon, Jack Chernow (Columbia University)  scored on an error to get Onondaga within one. Then an AJ DiFillipo (Columbia University) 2-run single flipped the score to give the Flames a 6-5 lead. DiFillipo then scored on an error by the pitcher. After seven innings, Onondaga lead 7-5. After Syracuse scored a run to make it 7-6 in the 8th inning, Corbin Paxton (Lake Erie College) laced a 2-out RBI triple to add an insurance run.

From the 1st inning on, the Flames outscored the Salt Cats 8-1.

Gabe Golob (New York University)  allowed all five runs in the 1st inning but kept Syracuse off the board for his first win of the season after pitching six innings.

The loss goes to Zach Kemp of Syracuse. He pitched two innings and allowed all four Flames runs in the 7th inning.

Keon Taylor (Chatham College) picked up a 6-out save, his first save of the season, while striking out 3.

Flames improve to 4-6 on the season (3-0 against the Salt Cats) while Syracuse falls to 3-6 on the season.

The Flames host the Olean Oiiers at 7:00 PM tonight at Onondaga Community College baseball complex.
