Power lose rematch in Oneonta, 5-1

Niagara Gazette — There would be no last-inning drama as there was in Friday's meeting at Sal Maglie Stadium. Saturday night at Damaschke Field in Oneonta, the host Outlaws avenged their loss the night before, defeating the Niagara Power, 5-1.

The game was actually a low-scoring, low-hitting affair for the first five innings. The Outlaws went up, 1-0, in the bottom of the first when Brian Kraft scored on Howard Joe's hit. 

Niagara didn't get its first hit of the game until the fourth inning when Ben Pickard singled. The Power were held to just four hits the entire game.

Oneonta scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth, including the game-winner. Evan Harasta doubled to score Jake Levine, followed by Mitch Hollander bringing Howard Joe home. Harasta then scored off Spencer Duffie's sacrifice fly to center field.

The Power got on the scoreboard in the eighth inning when Scott Gillespie's base hit brought Johnny Blue Craig home. Oneonta countered with a run in the bottom of the eighth.

Ryan Brasser (1-3) took the loss for the Power, whose record fell to 10-18. 

Niagara is scheduled off today. Tomorrow night the Power travels to Rochester to face the Ridgemen, who have fallen back into the New York Collegiate Baseball League's cellar, trailing Niagara by just a half game.
