Pilots Win Big 13-5 Over Pioneers, Behind Seven Run Seventh

Newark- There was rain all around the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League but it was nice and dry at Colburn Park allowing the Newark Pilots to take on the Elmira Pioneers. Top teams in their respective divisions made for a great match up as Elmira has won the first three meetings between each other this season.
Jayson Yano (Stevens) was going for his fourth straight complete game on the mound tonight for the Pilots but didn’t have his best stuff and wasn’t getting much help from his defense early on. Two errors in the first inning by Newark aided three runs for Elmira. Christian Santiseban (Manhattan) continued to stay red hot with an RBI single that brought TJ Dixon (Samford) home for the early lead.
Pilots scratched two back in the home half of the first, courtesy of an RBI double by Jack Gerstenmaier (Virgina) and single by Tanner Giesel (Southeastern CC) and the score was 3-2 Pioneers after one.
Elmira trailed by one heading into the forth when Zac Bellinger (St. Rose) took down and in fastball from Yano and smashed over the right center fence.
Yano went 5 1/3 innings pitched and existed with a one run lead and the bases full of Pioneers in the sixth. Andrew Tidwell (Saginaw Valley State) entered to try and escape the damage and did just that, getting Nick Walker (Old Dominion) to pop up to Austin Clock (SUNY Cortland) in foul territory and Santiseban to ground out to Gerstenmaier at second and the Pilots held onto the narrow lead
The back and fourth contest was broken open in the bottom of the seventh. Giesel lead off with a no doubt home run off the scoreboard in left field, his first of the season. Following the homerun, Clock was walked and then the flood gates opened up. Five straight hits recorded by the Pilots as they sent eleven batters to the plate scoring seven runs in the inning to take a 13-5 lead as they cruised to victory.
Yano didn’t go the distance but thanks to some great relief work by Tidwell and Chad Valcoviak (Houston Baptist), does get the win improving to 4-1. Gerstenmaier had three hits on the evening also scored three runs. Giesel was the power for Newark, with three hits and four runs batted in. Designated Hitter Samm Wiggins (Houston Baptist) also added three hits for the Pilots. Chris Kalousidian (Manhattan) recorded three this in the Pioneers loss.
Newark will remain home to take on the Watertown Rams tomorrow night, first pitch 7:05pm.
