BEEKMANTOWN —

Robby Knowles had three hits for Plattsburgh and also pitched seven innings. Jack Tolosky took the loss.

“Knowles, in the first inning through the fifth inning, got 13 out in a row,” Bell said. “He did a great job pitching for them. He was really on his game. We weren’t really able to crack him until the seventh inning. He carried his team on his back (Tuesday) with his hitting and pitching.”

Peru 9, Saranac 2

PERU — Blake Altizer and Andy Kneussle each belted two singles and had an RBI apiece, helping the Indians to a seven-run win over their division rivals.

Peru jumped out to an early 5-0 lead through two innings of play.

“We were swinging the bat, getting the ball in play and putting some pressure on their defense,” Indians coach Brian Marino said. “They committed four errors in the first three innings, and we were able to capitalize.”

Dom Delello recorded the win on the mound, while finishing with eight strikeouts and surrendering just one earned run.

“There were two innings in the game (Tuesday) where he did an outstanding job,” Marino said. “He tossed 15 pitches during that two-inning span. Our defense played well behind him. The boys were up for this one.”

Nick Uliva added a two-RBI single for Peru.

The Chiefs accounted for three hits in the ballgame with all three occurring in the third inning.

Michael Conway, Andrew Tedford and Kyle Erickson tallied hits for Saranac.
