Bulldogs run past

Clymer, 9-0

CLYMER (April 27) - The Brocton Bulldogs (7-2, 6-1) swiped 13 bases to run past Clymer, 9-0, in CCAA West 2 high school baseball.

Ryan Johnson stole four bases, Alec Chelton had two stolen bases and Steven Krystofiak had one.

"We took advantage of their weakness," Brocton coach Robert Fetterick said. "We were very aggressive on the base paths. We were moving runners into scoring position because we were struggling at the plate. We had to muster runs any way we could. We only had seven hits."

The Bulldogs received a solid pitching performance from Alec Chelton, who went the distance, striking out eight, walking two and giving up four hits.

"He did great," Fetterick said. "He hasn't thrown much because of the other guys we have. When his number was called, he stepped up and commanded the game. I am proud of him for that and the boys played well behind him. We knew coming in this year, our strength was pitching. To have guys I can call on for relief is a big asset and will help us at the end of the season and a playoff push."

Johnson went 3 for 5 with three runs scored and an RBI while Chelton had a hit, two walks and two runs. Krystofiak was 1 for 3 with a run scored and an RBI.

Wolverines hold on to edge Silver Creek, 6-5

SILVER CREEK (April 28) - The Westfield Wolverines (7-2) held on to beat the Silver Creek Black Knights, 6-5, Thursday afternoon in a non-league baseball contest.

The home team (4-5) spotted the visitors a 4-1 lead before coming back to tie the game, 4-all. Westfield went ahead 6-4, and while Silver Creek got a run across in the bottom of the seventh, it could not score the tying tally before the game ended.

"This was a non-league game, so both teams threw the pitchers who needed work at this time of year," Silver Creek coach Mike Janisch said. "Both teams swung the bat real well."

Max Bates led the Wolverines' batters with a 3-for-4 day, knocking in two runs. Taylor Irwin went 3 for 4 with an RBI and Chris Catalano had a 2-for-4 day with a triple and a run batted in for Westfield. Joe Quagliana went 2 for 4 with an RBI and Greg Schroeder was 2 for 4 for the winners.

For Silver Creek, Brad Rybak went 2 for 3 with a double, a triple and an RBI. Zak Bogosian went 2 for 4 for the Black Knights while Chris Williams had an RBI.

Eric Fermier recorded the win on the mound for Westfield, pitching the last four innings. Jonathan Wilson was the Wolverines' pitcher for the first three innings.

Williams pitched the first three innings for Silver Creek, walking one batter and striking out one. Jacob Lewis finished up for the team, recording two strikeouts and no walks.

Robson four-hitter leads Sherman to win

JAMESTOWN (April 30) - Chris Robson hurled a four-hitter with four strikeouts and no walks as Sherman edged Randolph, 2-1, for its first win in the Baseball Showcase at Diethrick Park on Saturday.

Jake Beaver was a tough-luck pitcher with a four-hitter as well, striking out six and walking two for Randolph.

Kolby Parks broke the 1-1 tie in the sixth inning by scoring an unearned run. In the second, Jarrett Bates doubled and later scored the Wildcats' first run.

Bates wound up with two hits, while Robson and Parks each had one.

Zayne Reardon-Ball, Dakota Donaldson, Dylan Williams and Beaver recorded the Randolph hits.
