Hjelle’s Eight Inning Gem Pushes Pio’s To West Division Title

Still needing a win in order to clinch the regular season West Division Championship Title, the Pioneers looked to finally do so against the Newark Pilots on the road.




The Pioneers jumped on the Pilots early with a RBI triple from Troy Dixon (Samford) and a RBI groundout from Rob Perteet (Samford) to get a 2-0 lead in the top of the first. 


Kyle Ruth (LIU Brooklyn) would hit a RBI single to right field in order to extend Elmira’s lead to 3-0 in the top of the fourth.




The Pilots would take advantage of an Elmira error to get a run on the board in the fifth to shorten the Pioneers lead 3-1.


Parker Carraci (Ole Miss) notched down his seventh save of the season to secure the win and the West Division Regular Season Title.




Sean Hjelle (Kentucky) earns the win pitching an absolute gem. He went eight innings, giving up no walks, three hits, one unearned run and struck out nine Pilots. Ryan Wesson (UMass Lowell) took the loss for the Pilots.
