CARDINALS 0
SNOW CATS 9

A.J. Gartland (Alfred State College) ran his string of innings without allowing an earned run to 30 with a complete game, three-hit shutout. The 6-foot-1 lefty retired 16 batters in a row from the second inning to the seventh and recorded four of his six strikeouts during that span. Gartland’s season ERA continues to drop, going to 0.20. He improved to 5-0 on the season.

Offensively, the Snow Cats got out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning despite not getting a hit. David Bermudez (Rider University) hit a sacrifice fly, Gil Merod (Ithaca College) and Lachlan Charles (Cornell University) drew bases loaded walks and Buzz Shirley (Ithaca College) was hit by a pitch with the bases juiced.

Shirley lengthened the lead in the third with a two-RBI double and Branden Myers (St. Bonaventure University) closed the scoring with an RBI triple in the fifth inning.

Merod also hit a double in the game for the Snow Cats and James Cronin (St. Lawrence University) and Patrick Blackall (Rochester Institute of Technology) also notched hits in the victory.

Maxwell Yale, Jackson DeJohn (St. Bonaventure University) and Daniel Tirabassi (University of Rochester) recorded all of the Cardinals hits. Jake Wamser (Tompkins County Community College) threw a scoreless seventh, striking out two while surrendering a walk.
