STAC BASEBALL: MAINE-ENDWELL TOPS WAVERLY, 5-3 (2024-05-13)

Valley Sports Report
ENDWELL — Maine-Endwell snapped a tie game with three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning en route to a 5-3 win over Waverly here Monday afternoon in STAC baseball action.

With the Spartans up 1-0 after a run in the bottom of the first inning, the Wolverines tied the game in the top of the third inning on an RBI double by senior Ethan Perry.

M-E scored again in the top of the third to take a 2-1 lead, and Waverly tied it up again on an RBI single by senior Jay Pipher in the top of the fifth. The Wolverines were poised to do further damage with the bases loaded, and just one out, but a 6-4-3 double play ended the threat.

The Spartans answered with three runs to take a 5-2 lead after five innings.

Perry’s sacrifice fly in the top of the seventh closed the gap to 5-3, but that’s was all the damage the Wolverines could muster.

Perry had three hits, including a double, and two RBI, and Pipher singled twice, and drove in one run to pace Waverly’s eight-hit attack, while senior Sean Bubniak doubled and scored one run, and sophomore Hogan Shaw singled and scored one run.

Senior Jake VanHouten added a single for the Wolverines, and freshman Ben Shaw scored one run.

Sophomore Ronin Ault got the start, allowing two runs on five hits, while striking out four and walking one in four innings.

Jay Pipher was tagged with the loss, allowing three runs on three hits, and two walks in one inning of relief, and sophomore Porter Daddona struck out one and walked one in a scoreless inning of relief.

Waverly, now 13-5, hosts Trumansburg Wednesday.
