Pioneers Sweep Watertown
Coming off a 21 - 7 Friday night, the Pioneers were looking to sweep the 2 game set with the Watertown Wizards.
The Pioneers jumped out to an early lead. After Sal Pezzino [High Point] knocked in a run with a groundout, Ty Yesensky [Old Dominion] singled. Justin Lacy's double put both runners in scoring position and both came home when Aaron Hopper [Marietta College] roped a double to the gap in right center field. After Watertown second baseman Angel Rosa banged a home run to left to cut the lead to 3 - 1 the Pioneers added a pair on a groundout by Ryan Normoyle [Washington College] and a single by Justin Lacy.
Helped by a Pioneers error, the Wizards put a scare into the home crowd by scoring 3 runs in the ninth. But, Jon Koch [Arkansas State] came in and shut the door.
The Pioneers return to Dunn Field on Monday to take on Mohawk Valley Diamond Dawgs. The next day the Pioneers begin a short two game series against Glens Falls Golden Eagles.
