Pioneers Walk Off Against Dutchmen

The Elmira Pioneers looked to get back in the win column Tuesday night as they welcomed in Albany for the first time this season. The Pioneers would need extra innings to come out victorious against the Dutchmen. Sal Pezzino connected for his first home run of the season, a 3 run walk-off shot in the bottom of the tenth inning to cap off a 13-10 comeback victory for Elmira.

The Dutchmen would race out to a 5-0 through 3 innings against Elmira starter Matt Holling. The Pioneers would plate their first run of the game in the fourth inning when Pat Hyde singled to bring in Aaron Hopper. Elmira’s offense would come to life in the fifth inning, as the Pioneers would tally three runs to make it a 5-4 ballgame. The inning would be highlighted by a two run home run off the bat of Justin Lacy. Elmira would then take a 7-6 lead in the sixth inning as Hopper would drive in Justin Lacy with a single.

After falling behind 10-7 Elmira would use a three run eighth inning to tie up the ballgame. David Bishop clubbed his league leading seventh home run of the season to get Elmira within two runs of the Dutchmen. Elmira would fail to score in the bottom of the ninth, as fans would see extra innings for the first time this year at Dunn Field. Wes Mcbride would keep the Dutchmen off the scoreboard in the tenth and again give Elmira a chance to pick up a victory. After a single and an intentional walk to put two runners on for Elmira, Pezzino sent the Pioneers to their 13th victory of the season and get them back into the win column.

The Pioneers finish the short two game series against the Dutchmen tonight at 7:05. Elmira hits the road for three games before returning home Sunday July 10th for a 6:05 start. Tickets are available in advance from Jubilee Foods at 2898 Westinghouse Road, Horseheads.
