GREENPORT — The Hudson River Collegiate Baseball League’s Wednesday match-up featured the Warriors taking on the Bears, who completely dominated the game by putting on an offensive outburst that has not been seen all year, winning 20-1.
Bears coach Marshall gave the ball to HVCC pitcher Christian Nolan and he pitched deep into the game, completing seven innings. Nolan finished with five strikeouts, three walks, five hits and one earned run.
Jeremy Ramirez closed out the final two innings with two Ks.
The Bears totaled a season-high 25 hits. They where led by Patroon Conference MVP Ramirez, who went 5 for 6 with a triple and two RBI. Utica College and local Hudson High School product TJ Gardner went 5 for 6 with a double and three RBI, Bailey Dunn went 5 for 5, Jeremy Cramer 4 for 6 with a triple and three RBI, Felix Day 2 for 6 with two RBI, Christian Nolan 2 for 6, SUNY Canton’s James Morehouse added a single and a walk and C-GCC’s Joey Tedford a single and two RBI.
Mike Menz was the choice for coach Berry and the Warriors. He pitched 5 2/3 innings, but the Bears’ offense was relentless. Menz gave up 16 hits with 12 runs — 10 earned — four Ks and one walk. Matt Denatale entered in relief trying to stop the hungry Bears, but the hits continued. Denatale pitched 2 1/3 innings, giving up nine hits, eight — two earned — with three Ks and a walk.
At the plate, Zach Schott, Pat Vivalda, Sean Berry, Joey Gosiewski and Angelo Agosto each had a single.
