Baseball: 7-10, 1-3 AMCC

The hitting of Colin Johnson (Alfred Almond) and the pitching of Garrett Mack (Avon) led the Alfred State baseball team to a split of a AMCC doubleheader at Pitt-Bradford on Wednesday afternoon. The Pioneers won the nightcap 3-1 after falling to the Panthers 3-1 in the opener. A scheduled doubleheader vs. Pitt Greensburg was postponed on Saturday.

The Pioneers started off fast in the nightcap. Connor Pingitore (Amsterdam/Broadalbin Perth) singled, Samuel Dickerson (Cutchogue/Mattituck) was hit by a pitch, and one batter later Colin Johnson (Alfred Almond) hit a three-run homer to give Alfred State the early lead. Mack made that lead stand with a complete game three-hitter. He allowed an unearned run in the 7th inning but didn't allow the Panthers any closer. He walked five and struck out 11.

Johnson finished the game 3 for 4 with 3 RBI. Pingitore was the only other Pioneer with multiple hits finishing 2 for 4.

In the opener, Pitt Bradford got on the board first in the 3rd when they scored an unearned run. The Pioneers tied it up in the 5th on a RBI single by Dickerson to score Mike Gibson (Schenectady) who had led the inning off with a single. The Panthers took back the lead in the bottom of the inning with a two-out single and added an insurance run in the 6th. The Pioneers had chances but could not capitalize to tie the game up. Pingitore was the lone Pioneer with multiple hits. He finished 2 for 4. AJ Gartland (Irondeqouit) allowed just four hits and one earned run in 4.2 innings but took the loss.

AJ Soto (Churchville) and Joe Johnson (Churchville) both registered eight points as the lacrosse team battled in three contests this past week. The Pioneers fell 22-6 to Cazenovia, 10-8 at Houghton, and 19-7 vs. SUNY Poly.
