Big Inning Dooms Pioneers Against Wizards

In a game originally scheduled to be played in Watertown the Wizards defeated the Pioneers by a score of 7 - 4.  After the Pios jumped out to a 1-0 lead, courtesy of a Pat Hyde (Northern Kentucky) sacrifice fly, the Wizards chased Pios starter Mike Kazley (Cornell) with a six-run fourth.  The big blow was a two run single by Alex Maldonado (Holy Cross).
The Pioneers would score a two runs in the fourth on an RBI single by Ty Yesensky (ODU) and a Justin Lamborn (West Chester) fielders' choice.  They closed the gap with a run in the sixth on a Ryan Normoyle (Wash., Md.) double.   But, the Wizards added a run in the seventh on Erick Gaylord's (Campbell) solo shot.  His league leading tenth long ball of the season.
The Pioneers put the tying runs on base in the ninth before Wizards closer Adam Krebs (Keystone) struck out Logan Uxa (Arkansas State) and Corey Keller (FAU) to end the game.

Clubhouse Confidential:
Pioneers Skipper Dan Shwam returned to Elmira in the middle of the game last night.  His wife, Melody, had successful surgery to remove a non malignant tumor from her heart last week.  We are glad to know her  recovery is going extremely well.
The Pios signed two middle infielders prior to tonight's game.  Travis Rosenwinkel (Corning Community College) and Corey Hamula (Sullivan County Community College).  "Both are local players who give us the up the middle infield depth we lost when Sal Pezzino had to leave the team.  Both hit well for their respective schools and will get some playing time this season.  But they are really looking to make an impression in regards to our 2012 roster. " said GM, Jeff Kunion
