Flames, Trail Blazers Split Doubleheader

ONONDAGA, N.Y. - The Onondaga Flames (17-21) and the Adriondack Trail Blazers (13-24) played two on Thursday night as they made up for the rained-out game at Doubleday Field in Cooperstown. The Trail Blazers came to Onondaga Community College and the teams split both ends of the doubleheader, with the Flames winning the matinee, 2-1, and the Blazers taking the nightcap, 8-5.

The Flames took game one off the bat of Adam Gallagher (Ithaca College).  Gallagher collected both of the team’s RBIs with a two-run single in the second inning.

For Gallagher, this continues a hot streak as he now has a four-game hitting streak and has gone 5-10 over that streak.  This comes after a slow 6-34 stint to start the season for Gallagher.

“He’s been working his butt off nonstop both defensively and with his swing,” said head coach Ryan Stevens.  “He’s someone that’s earned every bit of playing time and at-bats that he’s gotten.”

The Trail Blazers responded to Gallagher’s hit with an RBI double off the bat of Zach Zschering (Adrian College).

However, that was all the offensive they would get as they failed to complete the comeback.

Flames starter Evan Reichel (St. Lawerence University) earned the win (1-0) after giving up just one run in five innings of work.

In the seventh closer Matt Bowman (Ithaca College) got into trouble as he loaded the bases but earned his fifth save as he did not allow any runs to score.

The loss was given to Michael Delease (Central Connecticut State) as he gave up two runs over five innings to fall to 0-5 on the season.

In game two the Trail Blazers took advantage of a rough start from Chase Hagerty (Southeast Missouri State) as they jumped out to an 8-0 in the first four and a half innings.

In the fourth inning, Jordan Torrento (Adrian College) brought in two runs with a ground-rule double.  The next batter, Riley Schaefer (Texas Lutheran University) plated Torrento and Tyler Bruno (Iona College).

Chuck Hooker (Alderson Broaddus University) then singled and an error brought home Schaefer to give Adirondack a 6-0 lead.

The Flames answered in the bottom of the fifth and scored four runs on just one hit as they benefitted from three walks, two hit batsmen, a sacrifice fly, and a misplayed infield fly to cut the deficit in half.

The Flames cut the lead to three on a single from Stephen Bennett (Canisius College) in the sixth but could not close the gap completely.

“Yeah, we scored five runs, but we still had a lot more opportunities than that and we’ve got to a better job of executing,” said Stevens.  “They obviously showed some resiliency [and] that they can come back in any single game.  But we can comeback if everyone executes.”

Trail Blazers starter Joe Hamrick (Hillsdale College) earned his first win of the season after throwing four innings and giving up four runs.

Hagerty (2-3) was given the loss after giving up six runs over three and two thirds innings.

Onondaga travels to Oneonta (11-24) on Friday for a game with the Outlaws.  Adirondack hosts Geneva (24-16) on Friday.
