Niagara Power 3, Batavia Muckdogs 2 – 5 Innings
The Power (21-17-2) kept themselves in playoff positioning with this win over the Muckdogs (25-15).
The Power struck first in the bottom of the first inning, with an RBI double from DH Andrew Stillinger (NCCC) giving them a 1-0 lead. Their other two runs would cross in the bottom of the third when Stillinger would come through with another RBI hit, followed by first baseman Cal Brazier (Tiffin) crossing home.
Batavia would tie the game at one in the third when DH Adam Agresti (St. John’s) came through with an RBI single. Then in the fifth, right fielder Josh Leaden (Rochester) came home on an error after a stolen base to bring Batavia within one.
Unfortunately, the comeback would be halted there due to storms in the area, and the league ultimately chose to make the game final over a postponement, given its proximity to the playoffs.
Josh Quartley (Gannon) picked up the win for the Power, pitching two innings in relief.
