Muckdogs Sweep Home & Home Series Against Pios

Batavia completed the comeback win Wednesday night as they beat the Pioneers
10-6 at Dunn Field, their second win over Elmira in as many days. During the two-game
stretch the Muckdog offense exploded, edging out Elmira in runs (20-7), and hits

With the game hanging in the balance due to inclement weather prior to first
pitch, the Pios jumped to an early 4-1 lead after two complete innings. DH Daniel
Burroway responded with a two-RBI double over center fielder Chris Erickson’s head
that shaved Elmira’s lead to one.

Catcher Ben Schorr knocked in his second run of the game in the fourth for the
Pioneers, as their lead would increase back to tow run deficit, 5-3.
With runners on the corners in the top of the sixth, skipper Joe Martinez made
the decision to have Pepperdine commit Cameron Conley enter the game as a pinch
hitter. The decision would pay off as Conley would fleece a ball into the right-center gap
on the first pitch that he saw which would score both Jerry Reinhart and Joe Georger to
tie the game at five.

Erickson would have a leadoff single off birthday boy Colin Noeth, and would
later come around to score in the bottom of the frame. With Elmira back up by a run,
Abner Benitez kept his six-game hitting streak intact after a clutch two-out RBI single in
the top of the seventh.

With the game knotted up at six, Christian Robinson, who replaced Conley after
his triple, had a clutch hit of his own. After Georger and catcher Joey Battaglia reached
on walks, Robinson hit the go-ahead opposite-field single to go up 7-6.

The Muckdogs would not look back as winning pitcher Andrew Parr kept the
Pioneers stuck at six runs without allowing a hit in three innings of work. Heading into
the ninth with a 8-6 lead, Spencer Marcus and Benitez would both hit solo home runs
over the 25-foot outfield walls at historic Dunn Field.

Both homers would add extra cushion for Parr (who went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the ninth) and create even more excitement in the Muckdog dugout, which was electric all night long.

Batavia now leads the season series against the Pioneers 3-1, as all of their losses
have been against the Muckdogs. Batavia will shift their focus to the Jamestown Tarp
Skunks as they travel to Russell E. Diethrick Jr. Park.

First pitch is scheduled for a 7:05 start. Tomorrow’s game can be viewed on
