Carter Carries Pioneers Over Pilots in 12-4 Win

The Elmira Pioneers (12-7) started off strong and never looked back in their 12-4 victory over the Newark Pilots (8-9) at Colburn Park on Saturday night with 1,466 fans in attendance.

Pioneers' starter Jordan Carter (St. Joseph's) improved to 3-0 on the season after throwing double-digit strikeouts through eight full innings on the mound. Carter fanned 11 Newark batters while allowing only one walk.

Elmira batters gave Carter plenty of offensive support early in the contest. With the bases loaded in the top of the second inning, Corey Keller (Florida Atlantic) cleared the bases with a triple to left center. Justin Lamborn's (West Chester) single later in the inning gave the Pioneers a 5-1 lead.

Down 6-1 in the home half of the third, Randy Villa (San Joaquin Delta) scored the RBI on a single to left field to cut the deficit to 6-2, but that would be all Newark could score until the eighth.

Carter threw four straight scoreless innings from the fourth through the seventh. In the top of the seventh, Aaron Hopper (Marietta) hit a two-run single to score David Bishop (Mississippi State) and Ryan Normoyle (Washington), giving Elmira an 11-2 lead.

The Pilots tallied on two more runs in the eighth. Ray Delvalle (Kentucky Wesleyan) hit a triple just fair down the right field line, bringing Nick Parent (UC Santa Barbara) home. Delvalle scored a run of his own on a passed ball from Elmira catcher Patrick Hyde (Northern Kentucky).

With the 11-4 lead in the ninth, three straight single loaded the bases with two outs for the Pioneers. Keller earned another RBI on Elmira's fourth consecutive single to bring the score to the final 12-4.

Justin Lacy (Longwood) and Hopper each recorded four hits for Elmira. Keller batted in a team-best four runs. Jimmy Reed (Skagit Valley) came in to relieve Carter in the ninth.

The Newark pitching staff struggled as a whole throughout the entire game. The four pitchers combined for nine walks compared to only four strikeouts. Jim Glasgow (Lewis) gave up five runs, losing his first start of the season.

The Newark Pilots head to Cooperstown to face the Hawkeyes tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. The Elmira Pioneers, who remain atop the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League West Division standings, travel for a 7:05 p.m. game against the Watertown Wizards.
