Elmira Squeaks By Geneva, 5-2

ELMIRA, N.Y. – In a close contest until the end, the Elmira Pioneers (16-14) were able to outlast the Geneva Red Wings (18-12) by a final score of 5-2 on Friday evening at Dunn Field.

Geneva took an early leads thanks to two runs off of Pioneers starter Jake Hamilton (Kentucky) in the second inning. TJ Byrd (Rend Lake) opened the scoring with an RBI looping liner to left field that plated Will Simoneit (Cornell). Later in the inning, a Trustin Riley (Tampa) fielder’s choice scored Ben Terwilliger (Maine) from third.

Elmira would get one back in the bottom half of the frame on a Brayden Combs (Kentucky) RBI double down the right field line.

The Pioneers tied the game up in the bottom of the fifth when Colton Evans rolled a ball through the left side for an RBI single that scored Devon Adams (Old Dominion) and knotted the score at two.

The game would stay tied until the eighth inning when, with the bases loaded, pinch-hitter Allbry Major grounded one through the drawn in infield and into left field that scored one run. On the play however, Brayden Combs would be thrown out at the plate trying to score from second base. Later in the frame, Joe Preziuso (Canisius) would add two big insurance runs with a two-run single to left field that made the score 5-2.

Conor Grammes (Xavier) came on to shut the door in the ninth and was able to do so albeit with a bit of drama. Grammes walked the bases loaded before striking out Mikey Arman (Kenyon) to end the game.

Neither starting pitcher for either club ended up factoring in to the decision. Jake Hamilton threw six innings of two run baseball while his counterpart Ben Terwilliger tossed five innings while giving up two runs and striking out nine.

Chase Austin (Corning C.C) gets the win for Elmira after throwing a scoreless eighth inning. Garrett Uhl (UT-Dallas) is hung with the loss after giving up three runs out of the bullpen in three innings.

The Pioneers will be back in action tomorrow, Saturday, July 8th, against the Adirondack Trail Blazers at Dunn Field at 7:05 p.m.
