Bellardini Goes Eight Strong, Wings End Jammers' Win Streak

GENEVA, N.Y. - Alex Bellardini (Youngstown State) delivered a much needed long and effective outing for the Geneva Red Wings on Tuesday night at McDonough Park, as he pitched 8.0 strong innings to guide the Wings past Jamestown, 4-3.

Through the first two innings, Bellardini stranded six Jamestown baserunners. It was in the bottom half of the second when Jake Evans (Alabama Southern CC) would start the scoring with a leadoff home run down the right field line.

In the top of the 5th, a controversial home run would tie the game. Christ Conley (Canisius) hit a ball a ton down the right field line, and it was initially ruled foul by the field umpire. After conversing with the home plate official, the call was overturned and Conley trotted the bases in a tie ballgame.

A single and a sequence of botched fielding on a sacrifice bunt would put runners on second and third for the Wings in the bottom half of the 6th inning. The situation would eventually run to bases loaded, 2 outs, and a full count before Joseph Tassin (Bossier Parish CC) would deliver with a 2 RBI single through the left side to make the score 3-1.

The Wings would add one more in the bottom of the 7th on a throwing error. With runners on the corners, a ground ball earned Jamestown their second out of the inning at second base, but the throw on the turn bounced past first base, allowing Dominic Toso (Bucknell) to score.

Alex Bellardini would end his outing after 8 strong innings, giving up 2 and striking out 3 in the process. He would earn the victory on the evening. David Lyskawa (Niagra County CC) would also turn in a quality outing for the Jammers, cut short by the error in the field. He would finish with 5.2 innings pitched, giving up 2 earned runs and striking out 5.

Colby Mullins (Andrew College) worked past some ninth inning drama to earn his third save of the season. A run would score, but Mullins would slam the door with a strikeout to end the game.

These two teams will return to action again at McDonough Park tomorrow night as they finish their 2 day set in Geneva. The Red Wings (10-6) picked up a game on the Jammers (11-3), and now are two games out of first place in the West division.
