The regular season in the USCAA is speeding toward its conclusion and Balladeer’s Blog will cover the announcement of the teams competing in this division’s postseason tournament in a few days.
ODDBALL GAME OF THE DAY – The DELAWARE COUNTY COLLEGE PHANTOMS traveled to take on the WILLIAMSON COLLEGE OF THE TRADES MECHANICS. Neither team scored any runs until the SEVENTH INNING, when they both notched all the offense they were going to muster in the game. The Phantoms defeated the Mechanics 8-7 as Williamson left 4 men stranded on base. Strange game, but great names for the teams.
IT’S CLOBBERIN’ TIME – The SUNY-CANTON KANGAROOS hosted the ELMIRA COLLEGE SOARING EAGLES in what turned out to be a very one-sided affair. The Kangaroos actually trailed the Soaring Eagles 1-0 after 1 Inning of play but seized a 3-1 lead in the 2nd Inning on their way to a comfortable 10-4 triumph. SUNY-Canton Pitcher Travis Bigelow picked up the win as he threw for a complete game.
