Power topple the Twins, 5-1

Niagara Gazette — The Niagara Power won their third straight New York Collegiate Baseball League game Wednesday night with a 5-1 decision over the Geneva Twins at McDonough Park in Geneva. 

The hosts took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first and held that lead until the sixth inning, when the Power took the lead with what proved to include the game-winning run. Perry Rigby opened the rally with a double, advanced to third on an infield play then scored on Buddy McCoy's single.

Scott Gillespie got on base. McCoy and Gillespie were both brought home on Matt Brooks' base hit.

Niagara added two more runs in the eighth inning. After loading up the bases, McCoy scored on a wild pitch, followed later by Brooks scoring on an error by Geneva third baseman Josh Cassidy.

Zach Uher was Niagara's winning pitcher, allowing just one run and five hits in 7 1/3 innings, striking out six along the way. Relievers Sam Whim and Peter Moran held the Twins hitless the remainder of the game. Alex Leighton took the loss for Geneva.

The same two teams will face each other at Sal Maglie Stadium in Niagara Falls Thursday night, beginning at 7 p.m.
