Onondaga, NY June 10, 2018: The Flames’ best performance of the season came Saturday night thanks to an all-out spectacular performance on both sides of the ball
On offense, all 16 runs came in the first five innings of the cam. As a matter of fact, Onondaga put up 5 runs in an inning three times. Trace Peterson (Lake Erie College @lecbaseball) stood out, going 3-4 with an RBI and 2 runs scored. Jack Chernow (Columbia University @CULionsBaseball) was also marvelous at the plate. He went 2-4 with 3 RBIs.
Meanwhile on the bump, Flames starter Riley Glenn (Chapman University @ChapmanSports) was solid on the mound as he kept the Salt Cats off the scoreboard throughout most of his outing. Glenn pitched 6.0 innings, allowed 3 hits, 1 run, and struck out 4 Syracuse hitters.
During the 5th inning, a pitch from Logan Zavada nearly hit Adam Gordon (Cal State LA) in the head, resulting in words being exchanged. Not too long after, Gordon reached second base on a wild pitch, but his slide upset a Salt Cat infielder, resulting in more words being exchanged and the ejection of a Syracuse assistant coach.
It won’t be long before the two teams meet again. They face off at Onondaga Community College Tuesday June 12th at 7pm.
The win belongs to Riley Glenn of the Flames and the loss goes to Thomas Genuario of the Salt Cats.
Onondaga improves to 3-4 on the season while Syracuse drops to 2-6.
The Flames next game is Sunday night against the Syracuse Spartans at Hopkins Road Park. First pitch is set for 5:15 PM.
