Roth Outduels Frank, Pios Beat Pilots 2-0

NEWARK, N.Y. – Houston Roth (Ole Miss) out-pitched Will Frank (Canisius) to lead the Elmira Pioneers to a 2-0 victory over the Newark Pilots at Colburn Park.

Roth tied the Major League Baseball record, and set the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) record by striking out 20 Pilots hitters en route to his second win of the summer.  That wasn’t his only accomplishment, he was perfect through the first two outs of the seventh inning, when Will Allocca (Virginia) broke up his bid for perfection with a two-out double.  His final numbers were nine innings pitched, two hits, no walks and 20 strikeouts.

Frank wasn’t bad for the Pilots either.  The Canisius right hander no-hit the Pioneers through four innings, before allowing a lead off single in the fifth.  The only mistake he made was on a one strike pitch to Conor Grammes (Xavier), which Grammes deposited for a two-run homer over the right center field wall for the only runs of the game.  His final numbers were 7.2 innings pitched, five hits, two runs, two walks, and four strikeouts.  He also picked up his second loss of the summer.

Kyle Griffen (Louisiana Tech) relieved Frank, going 1.2 innings, allowing one hit and striking out one.  Grammes led the way for Elmira, going 3-for-4 with the two-run home run.  Every hitter in the Pilots starting lineup against Roth struck out at least twice.

The Pilots are on the road at Onondaga tomorrow night.  Elmira will be on the road at Jamestown.
