Pioneers Earn Fifth Straight Win in Pitcher’s Duel

Elmira, NY – Sam Sinnen (Old Dominion) impressed all of the 2,743 fans at Historic Dunn Field on Tuesday night. The Pioneers came into the game against Glens Falls having won their last four games in a row. Elmira used a two run bottom half of the first inning to take their first (and only) lead of the night in a 2-0 victory against the Golden Eagles.

Brad Currao (Wagner) faced Sinnen in his second start of the season for the Golden Eagles. Sinnen would find himself in familiar territory once again in front of the Dunn Field faithful as his defense turned a double play after a one out walk to end the top half of the first inning.

The Pioneers offense would pick up where they left off on Monday night after a win against Newark. TJ Dixon (Samford) would come around to score Elmira’s first run of the game after an error by Glens Falls second basemen Mark Powell (Bucknell) allowed him to advance to third base. Zac Bellinger (St. Rose) drove in Dixon with an RBI single through the right side to give Elmira a 1-0 lead. Taylor Hillson (Mansfield) gave Elmira a 2-0 lead as he was able to beat a throw at first base that would have been a double play to end the inning. Nick Walker (Old Dominion) would cross the plate on the groundball by Hillson catching the Golden Eagles defense napping, sending the home crowd into a resounding cheer.

Sinnen would control the pace of the game from the first inning on as he would work around back to back singles by Glens Falls in the third inning to keep the Pioneers lead intact. The Golden Eagles batters were unable to catch any breaks on the night as Sinnen picked up ten groundball outs over the course of seven innings. Elmira would turn to their bullpen in the eighth inning after SInnen allowed just 2 hits while striking out three batters.

Matt Horton (Cornell) and Tucker Rekucki (Bucknell) combined to throw two scoreless innings in relief allowing just a single hit, which would come in the ninth inning against Rekucki. With the win Sinnen moved to 2-0 on the season while Rekucki picked up his third save of the season. Taylor Skerpon (Penn State) finished the night 2-3 for Elmira as he picked up his first multi-hit game at Dunn Field. Elmira now sits at 7-3 on the season as Glens Falls drops to 4-6 on the season. Elmira returns home on Thursday night against the Newark Pilots for Red Solo Cup Night as select adult beverages will be just $2. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. at Historic Dunn Field.
