Niagara Gazette — Fernando Garcia's base hit allowed Brett Connors to come home with the game-winning run, as the Geneva Twins (17-10) completed a two-game sweep of the Niagara Power (14-11) at McDonough Park in Geneva Wednesday night with a 6-5 win in 10 innings.
The Power scored two runs in the top of the ninth that forced the extra inning. Trailing 5-3 and with the bases loaded, Gabriel Sevigny was awarded first after being hit by a pitch, allowing A.J. Hammond to score. The following batter, Jack Trotman, hit into a fielder's choice play that allowed John Mulhern to score the game-tying run.
Both teams exchanged runs in the first inning. Tyler Marcinko led off with a triple then scored on Ivan Acuna's single.
The Power went up 2-1 in the top of the third when Mulhern reached first safely on an error by Geneva's first baseman, allowing Ryan Wagley to score.
After Geneva scored twice to go up 3-2, the Power evened the game with a run in the sixth inning. Another Twins error allowed Sevigny to score.
Geneva scored two runs, one in the seventh and another in the eighth, but couldn't shut the Power down in the ninth.
When the Twins did cross the winning run, Daniel Twitty was on the mound for Niagara and took the loss to fall to 1-2 on the season. The Twins' David Anderson (6-0) got the win.
The Power return to Sal Maglie Stadium today to host the Syracuse Jr. Chiefs. The opening pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m.
