Oriskany Gray 9, Oriskany Maroon 4

The minor league all star game was a fun battle tonight to cap off a competitive season for our youngsters.  

The Maroon squad struck first taking a 2 run lead after a couple of walks and back to back singles from Joe Camerota and and Jace Bewick. The Oriskany gray team starting pitcher Jack Sydoriw settled in nicely and struck out 3 of the next 4 batters to work out of a bases loaded situation. Jack had 5 Ks on the day. Jace Bewick took the mound for the Maroon team and held his opponents scoreless the first inning recording 3 Ks and leaving a couple baserunners stranded.  

In the 2nd inning the maroon teams top of the order threatened after loading the bases with Joe and Jace getting hits but defense saved the gray squad. SP Jack fielded a ball hit by Jackson Lamonica and threw over to Wyatt Fairbrother for the putout to strand the runners. Jace took the mound for the second inning and struck out the first 2 batters but ran into some trouble with a couple walks and a hit batsman which loaded the bases. Jace hit his pitch limit so Quintin LoRusso had to come in for middle relief. Quintin was helped out of a bases loaded jam when on an 0-2 count Wyatt Fairbrother ripped one but was robbed by Camille Looney at 2B. Camille snagged the hard hit ball and got the force out to end the inning. Wyatt must have been fired up by this robbery because he came to the mound and stuck out 3 of 4 batters the next inning. The gray team took the lead and got 5 runs the next inning off some walks and a hit batsman as well as an RBI single from Jack Sydoriw. Austin Carver also singled that inning. Quintin recorded 1 strikeout that inning for the maroon team.  

The maroon team answered back with base hits from Quintin, Jace (3 hits today), Jackson Lamonica and Kenzlee Camerota. Wyatt got a big bases loaded strikeout and some defensive help from Gabe Falero at 1B to limit the maroon team to 2 runs that inning.  

Joe Camerota came on to pitch for the second half of the game for the maroon team. Jace Bewick at 1B barely beat Austin Carver to the bag for out 1. Maddalena Pettinelli singled that inning but 2 Ks from Joe kept the gray team off the board. 

In the 5th inning the maroon squad got a leadoff single from Radley Shaver. Radley advanced to second when Quintin hit one back to the pitcher (now Gabe Falero) who made a nice play for the out at first. Gabe also recorded a strikeout that inning. With Radley in scoring position Joe Camerota hit a line drive but was robbed of an extra base hit and an RBI on an excellent catch by Jack Sydoriw at SS. 

The gray teams bats came alive in the 5th with hits from Kali Kraeger, Wyatt, Austin, and Hunter Albright.  Wyatt's hit was a 2 rbi triple and Hunters was an RBI double. Joe made a nice play in the field for a putout at 1B to end the damage.  

The maroon team tried to rally in the last inning with hits from Jackson and Dmitri Boyko but Gabe closed the game out with back to back strikeouts.

The crowd was packed tonight and enjoyed a game that had a lot of action on both sides of the ball.

D&B Allen 1, Capri 5


Capri Pizza finished the season on a high note with a nice win tonight over DB Allen.  Nash Johnston did the pitching for Capri recording 6 Ks and kept DB off the scoreboard.  Nash struck out the side in the first and worked out of a bases loaded jam in the second inning. 

Radley Shaver pitched a great first inning for DB Allen striking out 3 and working out of trouble with a couple of base runners on. Kali Kraeger pitched in relief in the second inning and got 2 big strikeouts to end her minor league pitching career on a high note. Maddalena Pettinelli came on to make her pitching debut and battled fearlessly in a tough situation.  Relief pitchers Quintin LoRusso and Austin Carver attempted to keep Capri off the board but could not locate the zone for a 3rd strike on multiple occasions. Capri held a 5-0 lead and wouldn't look back. 

Defense took over in the next couple of innings. Capri got baserunners in the 3rd with back to back singles from Mason Powers and Nash but 3B Kali Kraeger continued her brick wall defense by fielding a Rocko Selmon grounder and touching 3rd for the the final out of the inning. In the 4th inning Sal Smaldon for DB Allen led off with a single.  However, Nash Johnston now at SS made 3 unassisted putouts on ground balls hit by John “Rambo” Chase, Austin Carver, and Quintin.  

Capri threatened in the bottom of the 4th when Courtney Van Patten, Dimitri Boyko and Memphis Johnston had consecutive hits but they were unable
to get any runs home. 

In their final chance at a comeback DB Allen got consecutive 5th inning singles from Kali, Jace Bewick, Maddalena and Royce Noel singled to drive in a run. However the comeback attempt fell short there. 

Congratulations to Capri for battling all season and having their hard work pay off at the end of the year. Congratulations to DB Allen for a season with more highs than lows and a season to be proud of.

Holland Farms 15, Fire Department 5


Our first game on Championship Saturday was between our expansion team Holland Farms and the defending league champions Fire Department. All of their previous games against each other this season were decided by a single run. Holland Farms jumped out to an early 6-0 lead in the first on 6 consecutive hits. Nathan Kronafel and Cohen Kraeger got things going with a pair of doubles. Callan Tarantino followed with a single, Landon Pavia hit a double, Jayden Schultz singled, and Camryn LoRusso doubled to right field. That's when Fire Department's starter Nick Citriniti settled down recording three strikeouts and only gave up a single to Natalino Orcutt. Nick was throwing hard but the top of the Holland Farms lineup had their timing set to him. Fire Department drew a couple walks that were followed by a single from Nick to score 2 runs. With two runners on and 2 outs Nolan Opperman hit a hard grounder down the 1st base line. Normally, a hit like this would have scored those two runs but the Holland Farms 1st baseman Landon Pavia made an incredible diving catch to snag the ball and make the force out at 1st to end the inning. Cohen was hit by a pitch to start the 2nd and Callan drew a walk. Darin Mimassi came in to pitch and a single by Landon and a double from Jayden would make the score 9-2. Callan walked one and struck out one in the 2nd before giving the ball to Landon to take over on the mound. Darin Mimassi singled to score a run and Fire Department added another before the inning was complete. Holland Farms again scored 3 in the 3rd. Natahan and Cohen starting things off with a pair of singles. Jayden also hit a single but Darin would strike out three to end the inning. Fire Department was able to get one more run across the plate in the 3rd before the Holland Farms defense recorded 3 putouts. The score was 12-5 heading into the 4th but once again Fire Department had to face the top of the Holland Farms lineup. Nathan doubled to start the inning. Callan and Landon singled, Jayden doubled, and Camryn got her 2nd hit of the game. Darin struck out the next two batters but Holland Farms held a 10 run lead going into the bottom of the 4th. Fire Department would have to score a run to extend the game. Fire Department was in a good position to get a run as their 2 hitter was leading off. However, Landon was able to get a quick 1-3 ground out. That was followed by a ground out to Cohen who was filling in at second base. Landon took that defensive momentum and was able to get a strikeout to end the game. Holland Farms recorded an amazing 17 hits in a 4 inning game. Jayden hit a perfect 4-for-4 and Landon was 3-for-3 at the plate. Callan and Landon combined for a 2-hitter. Nick and Darin struck out 12 for Fire Department. Congratulations to our major league champions Holland Farms. Both teams provided us with exciting baseball all season long.

Sahls 3, DB Allen 2

Sahls won the minor league championship tonight by defeating their fiercest competitor DB Allen this afternoon. As has been the pattern, these teams played a close 1 run game that came down to the wire. 

Sahls took an early 3-0 lead off some walks and a hit batsman but DB Allen starting pitcher Jace Bewick settled in and found the strike zone with the bases loaded recording a key strikeout. Jace then helped his own cause by snagging an infield pop fly hit by Colton Huey and touching second base for the inning ending double play.  

As usual DB Allens top of the order came out swinging on the starting pitcher.  A 2 out triple from Jace got the crown enthused.  Maddalena Pettinelli singled to drive in Jace and Austin Carvers RBI single brought the game to 3-2.  Starting pitcher Joseph Camerota recorded his 3rd K of the inning to keep the score as is.  Joseph had 6 Ks on the day. 

In the second inning Jace recorded 2 more strikeouts before running out of pitches on the day.  Relief pitcher Quintin LoRusso came on to record a strikeout to keep the game within a run. 

In the 3rd inning both teams got baserunners but no runs.  Joseph had an infield single for Sahls and Quintin had a double for DB that inning. The 4th inning was similar as each team got 1 baserunner on a hit from Wyatt Fairbrother (Sahls) and a double from Austin Carver (DB Allen). 

DB Allen had a chance in the bottom of the 5th when John “Rambo” Chase and Royce Noel each had hard hit balls snagged by Joseph at SS who also followed with accurate throws to Wyatt at 1B.  

Sahls and DB Allen split the season series 2-2 with each game being an exciting one and 3 of them being 1 run games. Congratulations to Sahls on their championship and to DB Allen who look to finish strong on Monday night in their season finale.

Grazs 14, DB Allen 8 (extra innings)


For the second time this season Graz’s and DB Allen needed extra innings to get a final result. DB Allen was able to escape the top of the first inning without any runs allowed. Jace Bewick struck out 2 batters in the 1st inning and the 3rd out was recorded when Braeden Miner’s infield hit struck a base runner. Gabe Falero took the hill for Graz’s and was throwing plenty of strikes but DB Allen’s hitters were up to the challenge. Quintin LoRusso singled, Jace Bewick doubled and back to back singles from Austin Carver and Radley Shaver allowed DB Allen to jump out to a 3 run lead after 1. Gabe recorded 3 Ks in the inning. DB Allen took the field and Jace then struck out 3 batters the next inning (5 Ks on the day) to keep the Graz’s bats quiet. Gabe came out firing strikes in the bottom of the 2nd and struck out the first 2 batters. However with 2 outs, DB Allen’s bats got hot when Quintin, Kali, and Jace had consecutive hits and tacked on another run. Relief pitcher Jack Sydoriw was able to shut down the rally recording a bases loaded strikeout to end the inning.

Graz’s took the lead with a 4 run 3rd inning with base hits from Camille Looney, Jack Sydoriw, Braeden Minor and Jackson Lamonica and doubles from Gabe and Hunter Albright. With runners on the corners and 2 outs Jake Charles hit a hard ground ball but a defensive play by SS Quintin ended the inning without further scoring. In the bottom of the 3rd Austin Carver and Radley Shaver led off with back to back singles. John “Rambo” Chase stepped up to the plate and a hard hit ball down the line tied the game and brought Radley to 3rd. Royce Noel singled to bring Radley home. Kalia Liddy singled to load the bases. Quintin LoRusso singled to drive in a run but no more runs were produced that inning. Both teams were then held scoreless in the 4th.

Graz’s was down 3 runs in the last inning but the top of the ordered proved up to the challenge with 6 consecutive hits coming from Camille, Jack, Gabe, Jackson (triple), Hunter, and Braeden (2B). Jackson’s triple tied the game and Hunter’s single gave Graz’s a 1 run lead. DB Allen would have to respond in the bottom of the 5th. After the first 2 batters struck out, things were looking bleak but Royce Noel’s 2 out single got things started for DB Allen. Kalia Liddy then advanced Royce over to 3rd with an infield hit and an overthrow into the outfield as well as some aggressive heads up base running from Royce. Quintin’s 4th hit of the day tied the game for DB Allen. On the next at bat, Kali Kraeger threatened to end the game but stout defense from Gabe and Jack Sydoriw kept the game tied.

In the extra inning it was all Graz’s who put up 6 runs on 9 hits. Runs were produced by hits from Dylan Colon, Walker Looney, Camille, Jack Sydoriw, Jackson Lamonica, Hunter Albright, Braeden Miner, Declan Ciotti and a fielder’s choice from Jake Charles. More runs would have been added if not for the brick wall defense of Kali Kraeger at 3B who prevented multiple well hit balls from going to the outfield. In the bottom of the extra frame Maddalena Pettinelli doubled and Austin Carver singled but a nice play from Camille at 2B prevented John “Rambo” Chase from extending the game further.

This was a wonderfully played minor league game from both teams who played each other in thrilling fashion all 4 times this season. Coaches and players for both teams all walked off the field proud of each teams efforts.

DB Allen 17, Grazs 15

Two evenly matched teams battled for the 3rd time this season.  Both squads used multiple pitchers today in an effort to keep their opponents off the board but to no avail. The score was 10-10 after 2 innings. Highlights from the first 2 innings for Grazs were pitching strikeouts from Jackson Lamonica, Jack Sydoriw and Gabe Falero and base hits from Braeden Minor (2-2 on the day), Gabe and Jackson.  DB Allen got 2nd inning hits from Kali Kraeger and Jace Bewick. 

The action picked up in the 3rd inning when Quintin LoRusso and Jace Bewick singled and doubles from Maddalena Pettinelli and Radley Shaver brought home 3 runs for DB Allen. 

Grazs answered right back with consecutive hits from Jake Charles, Dylan Colon, Camille Looney, Jack, Gabe, and Jackson.  The hot hitting and some aggressive baserunning produced 5 runs for Graz giving them a 2 run lead.  Both teams were held scoreless in the 4th. 

It was in the top of the 5th when DB Allen would rally. Quintin LoRusso tripled to get things started.  Kali Kraeger knocked him in and Jace Bewick followed with a hit. Maddalena Pettinelli doubled to tie the game and was an RBI machine today proving her value as the #5 hitter. With 2 outs Austin Carver hit a 2 RBI triple to give DB the lead for good. DB Allen tried to add another run but John “Rambo” Chase was beaten to the bag after a nicely hit grounder was fielded and put out by Gabe Falero. 

An always fiesty Grazs team kept fans on the edge of their seats after getting the tying runs on base in the bottom of the 5th with 2 out singles from Camille Loonet  and Jack Sydoriw but they were unfortunately unable to get those runs home.

Sahl's Glass 6, 
DB Allen 7

A tough Sahls glass team battled with a feisty DB Allen team on this hot May afternoon.  Austin Carver made his minor league pitching debut for DB Allen while seasoned veteran Wyatt Fairbrother took the mound for Sahls Glass. 
Sahls struck first with a 5 run top of the first highlighted by RBI singles from Wyatt and Robert West.  In the bottom of the first Kali Kraeger singled to get DB going and Jace Bewick hit an RBI double to get DB on the board.  Wyatt was able to strike out 3 batters that inning to keep DB Allen from scoring further.  
In the second inning Austin struck out the lead off batter (2nd K for Austin on the day) before running out of pitches for the day. Quintin LoRusso came on in relief and Austin moved to center field immediately making an impact there when he fielded a pop fly from Joseph Camerota and touched second base. With runners on the corners Quintin recorded a strikeout to keep Sahls off the board and keep the game within striking distance. Wyatt then struck 3 more batters out (6 Ks on the day) keeping Sahls in the drivers seat going into the the 3rd inning. 
Wyatts double and another Robert West single in the 3rd had Sahls threatening to pull away but no runs were scored.  DB Allen tacked on another run in the 3rd when a Kali triple, Jace Bewick single, and a Maddalena Pettinelli double got the game closer for DB Allen.  
Sahls was held scoreless in the top of the 4th and DB Allen grabbed their bats down 5-2. Nora Gleason  came out swinging with a leadoff double. Noras hit sparked a rally as the next 5 batters got hits. Kalia Liddy followed Nora with a a single moving Nora to third. Quintin LoRusso hit an RBI single and Kali Kraeger singled to load the bases for cleanup man Jace Bewick.  After falling behind and on his last strike, Jace cleared the bases with a rip to left field.  Maddalena then doubled (2nd double of the day) sending Jace home and giving DB Allen a 2 run lead going into the 5th and final inning. 
Sahls would not go away quietly however. A leadoff home run from Joseph Camerota and hits from Douglas Lacombe and Robert West made this a nail biter but these efforts were unfortunately not enough for Sahls.  The game would end 7-6 in favor of DB Allen. Wyatt Fairbrother started on the mound for Sahls and Joe pitched in relief.

Cliff's 12, Holland Farms 13

The temperature was hot Saturday morning and so were the bats in our opener between Cliff's and Holland Farms. Cliff's took advantage of what would have been an inning ending dropped 3rd strike play to end up scoring 5 runs on singles from Landon Christopher and Tenton Pryor. The big hit of the inning came off of Blake Phillip's bat when he roped a line drive down the 3rd base line. Gavin Bronk also smoked a line drive to second base but Nathan Kronafel's quick hand grabbed it for an out. Holland Farms answered with a 6 hit inning resulting in 4 runs. Nathan and Natalino Orcutt each doubled and Cohen Kraeger, Callan Tarantino, Jayden Schultz, and Liam Tylutki singled. Liam's hit was a well executed bunt down the 3rd base line to score a run. Gavin Bronk singled and scored in the 2nd for Cliff's. Cliff's threatened to score more but the Holland Farms starter Camryn LoRusso worked her way out of a bases loaded jam with back-to-back strikeouts to end the inning. Holland Farms took an 8-6 lead after 2 innings with another 6 hit inning. The top of the order produced singles from Nathan, Cohen, Callan, Landon Pavia, Jayden, and another double from Natalino. Holland Farms held Cliff's scoreless in the 3rd with an inning ending 6-3 double play by Landon and Callan. Donte Wolcott relieved Gavin Bronk on the mound cooling the Holland Farms bats allowing no hits and striking out 6 in the 3rd and 4th. Cliff's took the lead back (12-8) after scoring 3 runs in the 4th and 5th. Gavin hit a double and Connor Kolewe and Donte singled in those innings. That lead was short lived as the top of Holland Farm's order caught up to Donte's fastball. A leadoff double from Nathan, a pair of singles from Cohen and Callan, and a Jayden Schultz double gave Holland Farms a 13-12 lead headed to the 6th. Holland Farms reliever Callan Tarantino got Blake Phillips to pop up to Cohen Kraeger at short and followed that with two strikeouts to close out the game.

Graz's 7, D&B Allen 7


Two minor league squads battled in the wind and rain tonight in an extra innings showdown on Field 2. 
DB Allen would strike first when cleanup man Jace Bewick (3-3 on the day) continued his hot hitting with an RBI single in the bottom of the 1st.  Graz’s starting pitcher Jack Sydoriw was able to strike out the next batter to escape further trouble and end the inning.  Jack had 3 strikeouts in the first inning. Graz tacked on 5 the next inning to jump ahead and DB Allen would have to respond.  With the bases loaded leadoff hitter Kalia Liddy had an RBI single to bring the game within 1 run.  DB would then tie the game at 5 before relief pitcher Gabe Falero was able to end the inning with a strikeout. Graz’s threatened to take the lead in the 3rd inning with a leadoff single from Gabe but a nice backhanded defensive play from Jace at 1B robbed Hunter Albright of a potential extra base hit. In the top of the 4th Graz threatened to take the lead again with base hits from Walker Looney and Declan Ciotti but they were unable to produce any runs. It was DB Allens turn to try and take the lead and Maddalena Pettinelli started the bottom of the 4th with a base hit. DB Allen had a great chance to score here but SS Gabe Falero made a great play on a nicely hit line drive by Quintin LoRusso, ending the threat for DB Allen. Going into the last inning it was 5-5. The kids were cold, wet and hungry.  How would they respond?

Graz had the first crack at it and answered the bell with a leadoff double from Camille Looney. Jack Sydirow would follow with a RBI single and Jackson Lamonica (2 hits on the day) and Hunter Albright would follow with hits as well giving Graz’s a 2 run lead.  DB Allen would have to get 2 runs to extend the game.  Kali Kraeger led off with a single and Jace had an RBI triple to get the game within 1.  John “Rambo” Chase showed his clutch gene with a game tying RBI single. The extra inning saw both teams go scoreless but highlighted by SS Gabe and 1B Camille making a great defensive play on Maddalena’s ball hit to SS. Jace Bewick (5 Ks) and Kali Kraeger did the pitching for DB Allen tonight.

2022-05-13 (The Friday the 13th Battle for 1st Place)
Fire Department 16, Holland Farms 17


It took 17 hits and 17 runs for Holland Farms to defeat Fire Department in a Friday night battle for 1st place in the major league. Hits from Darrin Mimassi and Ryan Murphy put 2 on the board for Fire Department then Landon Pavia settled in and struck out the next 3 batters in the 1st. In the bottom of the inning Holland Farms answered scoring 6 with singles from Cohen Kraeger and Callan Tarantino. Landon then cleared the bases with a triple which was followed by a double from Natalino Orcutt. Holland Farms threatened to end the game in the 4th by drawing a couple walks and getting hits from Landon Pavia and Jayden Schultz. After a couple nice defensive plays Fire Department was able to extend the game stranding the winning run at second with the score 14-5. That defensive stand must have sparked the Fire Department bats because they rallied for 11 runs in the 5th and 6th inning to take the lead 16-15. Bryce Fortier's double and a Nolan Opperman triple in the 5th generated 5 runs for Fire Department. In the 6th they scored 6 on singles from Nicky Citrinitti and Mitchell Mimassi and another extra base hit double by Bryce. Holland Farms had to go deep into their bullpen to try and stop the Fire Department bats. Nathan Kronafel was tapped as the 4th Holland Farms pitcher to try and stop the Fire Department attack. After striking out the leadoff hitter for the second out he got the 3rd out himself by fielding a ground ball and tagging the base runner from 3rd out at home. A Natalino single started things off for Holland Farms in the 6th and after a couple walks the bases were loaded with only 1 out. Darkness had set in with only the scoreboard lighting the field. But that didn't stop Nathan from hunting down a full count fastball and roping it to left field for the walk-off Holland Farms win. Darin Mimassi hit 3-for-5 for Fire Department with a single, double, and triple. On the Holland Farms side Nathan hit 4-for-5 with 4 singles. Cohen was 3-for-4 with a single, triple, and the hardest hit ball of the night resulting in an inside-the-park home run. Landon was also 3-for-4 with a triple, inside-the-park home run, and a single. Jayden was 3-for-5 with two singles and a double. August Magnanti also had a hit for Holland Farms. Pitching for Fire Department was Mitchell, Darin, and Bryce. Bryce did a phenomenal job in a high pressure situation trying to close the game out for Fire Department after Darin ran out of pitches. Holland Farms pitchers were Landon, Callan, Camryn LoRusso, and Nathan. Holland Farms struck out 16 and Fire Department struck out 8. The defensive play of the game came from Parker Zeina in center field. He robbed Landon of another hit by diving for a pop fly for the 3rd out in the 5th.
