Saints Take a Ddouble Header from Genesee

The Saints continued their solid play in Region III contests taking a pair of games from GCC 13-4, 12-4.

In game one the Saints put up 5 runs in the first inning after a lead off hit by Adam Gasiorowski. Drew Delsignore hit an RBI double and was followed by an RBI single from Mike Montalbano. Cody Pitzo had a two run RBI single.

Genesee responded with 4 runs in the bottom of the 1st off started Jim Solano. Solano had previously had a 27.2 consecutive innings with allowing an earned run. Solano settled down and didn't allow another run in the last 6 innings to pick up his 5th win of the season.

MNE broke the game wide open after Gasiorowski had a lead off hit to start the second. Brian Casiano was hit by a pitch and Drew Delsignore hit a single to load the bases. Back to back strikeouts to Pierce and Montalbano gave GCC some hope of getting out of the inning. Sabatino Dinardo was down to his last strike before hitting an 0-2 pitch out to left center for a grand slam and his 3rd homerun in his last three games.

All nine starters for MNE had hits including Drew Delsignore's 3-3 with two doubles. Adam Gasiorowski had 3 hits as well.

In game two MNE capitalized on some sloppy play from Genesee and got out to an 11-0 lead. Nick Woloschak picked up the win, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits and struck out 3. Jimmy Pitzulo threw 2 scoreless innings in relief.  Brandon Johnston had two hits to lead MNE.

The Saints are now 4-0 in Region III play and 12-13 on the season. MNE will take on Lakeland is a 9 innings game tomorrow at 11:30 am.
