Mohawks rattle bats in win over Bobcats
It was a rough outing for the Corning Bobcat pitchers and team Thursday, March 7 at home. The rivals from across the county led wire-to-wire and used 13 base hits to score 8 runs in their victory. It wasn’t just their fire power on offense that was impressive. Their pitching staff held Corning to just 5 base hits with one of those hits being an extra base knock. Corning didn’t help themselves making three untimely errors that led to a whopping five extra runs for Piggott. Corning tacked on a few runs late and the final in this rivalry game would be 8 to 2 in favor of the road team. Beau Young got the start on the rubber for the black and gold. Young gave up one earned run through four and two thirds innings pitched. Young threw 92 pitches with 49 of those being called strikes. Dylan Woolard, Cole Guthrey and Clay Smith combined to finish the game on the pitcher’s mound for the Cats. The real story of the game was the gem pitched by the Mohawk starting pitcher. The starter for the visiting team hurled a complete game five hitter. Young led the way for Corning at the plate going 2 for 3 with one run scored. Smith earned the home team’s only extra base hit knocking in a RBI double and Woolard was 1 for 2 with a run scored and a walk in the loss.
