Binder Pitches Flames to Victory vs. Jamestown

ONONDAGA, N.Y. - The Onondaga Flames (15-16) overcame the Jamestown Jammers (26-8) and their top-ranked offense on Wednesday night with a 5-2 victory at the Onondaga Community College Baseball Complex.

The Jammers entered the game leading the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League in runs scored. However, they were held to just two runs over seven and half innings by Flames starter Jake Binder (Ithaca College).

“When you play as good of a team as the Jammers, it’s one of those days you’ve gotta have everything going for you.” Said Binder.

Binder faced the minimum 18 batters over the first six innings, including a stretch where he retired 11 straight between the first and fourth innings. He finished the game with two runs allowed and four strikeouts to pick up his second win of the season (2-3).

“Fortunately my change, curve, and fastball were all working,” said Binder.  “I felt like I could throw any pitch, in any part of the zone, in any count.”

Binder also got help from his defense as Alex Canty (Monroe CC) started three double plays that came immediately after the three hits Binder allowed in the first six innings.

Binder ran into some trouble when he loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth inning. Matt Bowman (SUNY Broome) was called on to relieve Binder, as the starting pitcher left to a standing ovation. Bowman allowed the first two runs of the game to score via walks. The Ithaca transfer then struck out Skyler Valentine (University of Texas at San Antonio) to end the inning. In the ninth inning Bowman pitched a scoreless frame to end the game.

On offense Colin BeVard (SUNY Cortland) led the way with a two-run triple in the second inning that ended up scoring the go ahead runs.

Connor Ryan (Mercyhurst University) fell to 2-1 on the season as he gave up five runs (three earned) over just one and a third innings of work.

Onondaga will host Geneva (20-15) on Thursday as it tries to pick up back-to-back wins.  Jamestown will head to Elmira (17-17) on Thursday and try to rebound against the Pioneers.
