Chazy's Bisonette no-hits Wells, has 15 strikeouts


WELLS — For Kyle Bisonette and the Chazy baseball team, it was just one of those games where they could seemingly do no wrong.

Bisonette fired 15 strikeouts in a no-hit performance — his second of the season — in the Eagles’ 15-0 drubbing of Wells in Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference play Friday.

With Brian Norcross not present, modified coach Joe Fish assumed head coaching responsibilities.

“(Bisonette) started off slow, but found a groove,” Fish said. “He carried us from there. He was throwing hard and had great command of all of his pitches. He carried us (Friday).”

The Indians only managed four runners on base all game: two were on walks, while the other two reached base after being hit by pitch.

“In the bottom of the seventh, he walked the first two batters,” Fish said. “Other than that, he picked it up right from there. Offensively, we helped him in return. Everyone hit very well. A lot of people stepped up and took care of business. It was a team effort.”

At the plate, Chazy belted 15 hits.

Alex LaPierre hit two doubles, while teammate Josh Peete was 3-for-3 at the plate with a double and 3 RBI.

Craig Botten and Nathan Reynolds each managed multiple hits with Reynolds scoring on three occasions.

Caleb Hayes was tagged with the loss, surrendering seven runs in over four innings of work for Wells.

“I’m really proud of these guys,” Fish said. “They all work so well together. It was great to have the opportunity to step up and help.”

Bisonette and Zach Brothers combined on a no-hitter April 15 in a 10-0 win over Westport.

During his varsity career, Bisonette has recorded two no-hitters on his own, while contributing on two others.

Indian Lake/Long Lake 14 Elizabethtown-Lewis 0

INDIAN LAKE— Owen Farrell was able to throw a complete-game shutout as the Orange were able to defeat the Lions.

Farrell pitched the entire game giving up zero runs on five hits while striking out 10 batters and giving up just one walk. He also went 1-for-3 in the game with a double. Orange head coach Dave Olbert said he was happy with the way Farrell pitched.

“I was thrilled with the way Farrell and our entire team played. He really kept the hitters off balance and pitched really.”

Curtis Seaman went 3-for-4 in the game with three RBIs and Henry Sandiford had a huge day at the plate going 4-for-5 with a double in the game.

“Henry (Sandiford) hit the ball well today,” Olbert said. “He was hitting on all cylinders and he played excellent defense for us as well.”

Noka Bailey took the loss for the Lions as he pitched the whole game striking out 10 batters and Jerry Mitchell went 2-for-3 in the game with two singles.

“I thought Bailey pitched well, but we also kept hitting the ball right at him,” Olbert said.

AuSable Valley 10, Beekmantown 8

CLINTONVILLE — Despite facing a 7-1 deficit in the fifth inning, AuSable Valley baseball coach Randy Douglas continuously encouraged his team to rally.

It’s safe to say Douglas got what he was looking for.

The Patriots belted eight runs in the fifth and held on to the lead for keeps in a monumental 10-8 win over Beekmantown in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference action Friday.

“I have a real good group of kids,” Douglass said. “They stick together and cheer for one another. We’ve been struggling lately, and I’m very proud they never gave up. They deserve a lot of credit.”

Tied at eight a piece, junior catcher Brandon Nolan drove home the game-winning run.

“We were able to get batters on base and chip away,” Douglass said. “Reilly Peck hit a two-RBI single to spark us offensively. We totaled eight hits in the fifth and never looked back.”

Dillion Savage finished the contest with three hits, while teammates Mike MacDonald and Dustin Miller each added two hits. Miller also registered a double.

Quenton Barber paced the Eagles it their lone extra-base hit, a home run.

Roger Preston picked up the win on the mound after completing relief work in the fifth.

Zach Myers accounted for the loss, while starting pitcher Brandon Buska accumulated nine strikeouts in over four innings of work.

Saranac 9, Moriah 4

PORT HENRY — Jake Griffin belted three hits, while Michael Conway and Durgan Zappala each added two in a five-run win for the Chiefs.

“We ended up with some errors that cost us in the fifth inning,” Vikings coach Casey Nephew said. “We had a fly ball drop between our outfielder and shortstop, which didn’t help. They responded to that with (Zappala) hitting a two-run double. That was big for them.”

Leading 6-4, Saranac added three more runs in the following inning.

“In the sixth, we led off with a couple of fielding errors,” Nephew said. “(Zappala) added another RBI in the sixth, so he combined for three (RBI) in a two-inning span.”

The Chiefs finished with 12 hits in the game.

Chris Clarke paced the Vikings with three hits. Dakota Marcotte recorded two hits.
