Pios Get Back on Track, Beat Pilots 11-2

NEWARK, N.Y. – One night after losing 7-0 to Geneva, the Elmira Pioneers (5-4) snapped their two game losing streak in a win by a score of 11-2 over the Newark Pilots (1-8) at Colburn Park.

The Pio’s got things going early thanks to an Ayrton Schafer (Samford) sacrifice fly in the 1st that scored Anthony Nucerino (UConn) after he lead off the ball game with a base knock.

The Pilots would answer right back in the bottom half of the 1st however. Tyler Odekirk (Irvine Valley) lead off Newark’s half of the first with a single and would later score from third when John Balliet (Orange Coast C.C.) was caught stealing at second base.

In the 2nd, Elmira would take a lead they would never relinquish. Joe Preziuso (Canisius) drove home Allbry Major (Xavier) with a single and then Andrew Orzel (Wofford) followed up Preziuso with an RBI single of his own that scored Casey Oliver (UL-Monroe). Anthony Nucerino brought home Preziuso and Orzel with a double that split the right-center field gap, making the score 5-1. Following Nucerino’s double, Brett Rodriguez (Wofford) laced a single that scored Nucerino to push the lead to five.

The Pioneers would tack on another in the third when an Anthony Nucerino single to center was mishandled by the centerfielder Over Torres (Yavapai) and the ensuing error allowed Casey Oliver to score the sixth Elmira run.

The scoring onslaught would continue in the 6th when the Pioneers put up two more runs. Ayrton Schafer singled home Brett Rodriguez and then Allbry Major legged out an infield single that plated Schafer for the ninth run of the game for the Pioneers.

Allbry Major added to his stellar day at the plate when in the 8th, he added two more RBIs on a single to right that scored Brett Vosik and Ayrton Schafer for the 10th and 11th runs for Elmira.

The starter for the Pioneers, Houston Roth (Ole Miss) was stellar in his five innings of work, as the 11 runs were more than enough for the Freshman All-American. In his five innings of work, Roth struck out two, and only allowed two hits and one unearned run en route to being awarded his first win of the season.

The bullpen would pitch the final four frames, as Zach Eggers (Old Dominion), Chase Austin (Corning C.C) and T.J Stuart (Manhattan) combined to only allow one run to close out the game.

Adam Klos (Viterbo) takes the loss for Newark. The righty allowed five earned runs, seven total, in just 2.2 innings.

The Pioneers will take an off day tomorrow, before returning to Dunn Field on Tuesday, June 13th, to take on the Onondaga Flames. First pitch will be at 7:05 p.m.
