Flames Sweep Newark in Doubleheader

ONONDAGA, N.Y. - The Onondaga Flames (8-5) extended their winning streak to five games as they swept the Newark Pilots (3-11) in a doubleheader at Onondaga Community College on Wednesday. The doubleheader was played as a makeup for the rain postponement from June 6th.

Onondaga won the first game by a score of 4-1 in seven innings.

The Flames jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning.  The first run scored on a triple from Gage Lanning (Canisius College).  After hitting his team leading fourth triple Lanning later came home on a single by Sam Little (Ithaca College).

The Flames scored two runs in the fifth inning from back-to-back doubles by Lanning and Trey Baur (Cornell University).  Lanning ended the first game 2-3 with a two RBI and two runs scored.

The Pilots weren’t able to score any runs until the sixth inning when Graham Hackbarth (Pearl River CC) drove in Wei-Chi Chen (Vanung University) with an RBI single.

The Pilots loaded the bases in both the second and fourth innings but were held scoreless as Flames starter Brian Nolan (SUNY Oswego) was able to get Hackbarth for the final out both times.

Nolan picked up his second win of the season (2-0) as he threw five and a third innings of one run ball and struck out four.  Matt Bowman threw a scoreless seventh inning to earn his first save of the season.

Henry Martinez (Cypress College) pitched all six innings for the Pilots and was given the loss (0-2).

The second game posed a unique challenge for the Flames as head coach Ryan Stevens replaced all but four of his game one starters in game two.  However, Stevens wasn’t worried about the prospect of starting new faces.

“I believe wholeheartedly we could put two winning teams on the field coming from this bench,” said Stevens.  “That speaks volumes about the talent and depth we have on this team.”

Stevens’ faith in his team was rewarded as the team won the second game 2-0.

Neither team scored a run in the first four innings of the game but the Flames broke through in the fifth inning with the game’s only two runs.

Adam Gallagher (Ithaca College) led off the bottom of the fifth with his first double of the season.  Gallagher advanced to third on Tyler Rourke’s (Alabama A&M) groundout.  Colin BeVard (SUNY Cortland) then brought him home with his first double of the season.

On top of getting their first doubles, Gallagher scored his first run and BeVard was got his first RBI of the season.

On the mound, Emmett Dunn (St. Lawerence) tossed six innings of shutout baseball.  Dunn finished the day allowing only two hits despite only striking out one batter.  The Ithaca College transfer earned his first victory of the season (1-0).  Trent Schulte (Gonzaga University) got the game’s final out to earn his first save.

For Newark, Kyle Griffen (Louisiana Tech) was given the loss (2-2).  Griffen pitched four and two thirds innings giving up two earned runs on five hits while striking out three.

The Flames will take their winning streak to Oneonta (4-10) on Thursday.  The Pilots will try and turn things around on Thursday as they travel to Jamestown and face the West-leading Jammers (11-3).
