Tedford hits game-winner for Saranac

SARANAC — Saranac picked up its second walk-off win of the week when Andrew Tedford’s run-scoring single in the bottom of the seventh inning gave the Chiefs a 5-4 victory over Plattsburgh High in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference baseball Friday.

The Hornets held a 4-3 lead entering the sixth when the Chiefs tied it on singles by Jake Griffin, Tedford and Kyle Erickson.

Then, in the seventh, Nate Stanton and Zach Lareau rapped singles, setting up Tedford’s two-out, RBI single.

Stanton allowed five hits and struck out five in going the distance for the pitching win. Losing pitcher Jack Tolosky also went the route as he struck out two and surrendered 13 hits.

“Nate (Stanton) pitched real well and Tolosky battled,” Saranac coach Frank Trudeau said. “Whenever we play Plattsburgh, it’s a battle.

“We were able to get double digits in hits, which was nice to see, and I was proud of the way we played defensively.”

Caleb Keysor, Erickson, Tedford, Jeremy Barber and Stanton accounted for two hits each for Saranac.

Tolosky had two of the five PHS hits and Shawn Courson added a double.

The Hornets trailed, 3-2, when they scored two in the fourth inning.

Lake Placid 6, Northern Adirondack 2

ELLENBURG — Ryan Meyer struck out nine and failed to surrender a walk in six innings on the mound, helping the Blue Bombers to a four-run win.

The junior helped his own cause at the plate, hitting two singles, registering an RBI and scoring a run.

“Defensively, I feel like we played our best game of the whole season,” Bobcats coach Jeph Doorey said. “We were relaxed and played far batter. Lake Placid has some good, strong pitchers. They throw hard and are well-coached.”

Chris Williams disallowed Northern Adirondack from coming within striking distance in the bottom of the seventh. The freshman accounted for two strikeouts and helped preserve the win.

Like Meyer, Alex Brandes picked up multiple singles.

Evan Nichols and Dallas Page accounted for both of the Bobcats’ hits.

Jared Nichols was tagged with the loss. However, he punched out five batters without giving up a walk in a complete-game performance.

Ticonderoga 6, Moriah 1

PORT HENRY — Jarryn Granger tossed 11 strikeouts, while Jordan Woods led the Sentinels at the plate with three singles in a five-run win.

“(Granger) pitched well,” Moriah coach Casey Nephew said. “He was throwing strikes and his breaking ball was decent. He kept our hitters off-balance.”

Woods registered a single and a triple, and Miles Austin added a homerun.

Jarred MacDougal hit the Vikings’ lone extra-base hit, a double.

Christopher Clarke was tagged with the loss, but pitched seven strikeouts in a complete-game performance.

Beekmantown 9, Saranac Lake 1

SARANAC LAKE — Austin Bradish had three hits on the afternoon and captured the pitching victory in the Eagles win over the Red Storm.

Devin Fessette added two hits for Beekmantown, which scored seven runs over the final two innings to pull away.

“We just couldn’t get the bats going,” Saranac Lake coach Bryan Munn said. “We have been hitting well all year, but we didn’t really get many guys on base (Friday). When we did, we didn’t get the hits when we needed them.

“Beekmantown played a great game. Their pitcher was tough; my hat goes off to him.”

Grant Strack paced the Red Storm with two hits. Trent Fitzgerald took the pitching loss.

Crown Point 10, Indian Lake 5

INDIAN LAKE— It was a low-scoring affair until the third inning when Crown Point took control of the game and didn’t look back.

Matt Moore took the loss in the game, but did get a few hits in the game going 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored. Henry Sandiford also went 2-for-4 in the game with two singles and Collin Farrell had a double for the Orange.

Orange coach David Olbert was happy with the way his team played today even though they didn’t come away with the win.

“I felt we hit the ball well today,” Olbert said. “I thought we put the ball in play a lot and we played well throughout the game.”

Crown Point got some nice pitching by Jaice Spring, who went five innings in the game allowing two runs and picking up the victory for the Panthers. Springs also helped his own cause going 3-for-4 in the game with a double.
