INDIAN LAKE — Henry Sandiford, Matt Moore and Kyle McMurty combined for a perfect game, striking out 11 of 21 batters as Indian/Lake Long Lake blanked Keene 23-0 in Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference baseball Tuesday.
“They were just pitching strikes,” Orange interim coach Dave Snide said. “They pitched a great game, and they had good fielding behind them. We were in the right spot at the right time.”

Indian Lake/Long Lake managed an 11-run lead after the first inning of play.
“It allowed us to do some different things, getting off to that good of a start,” Snide said. “It just makes for a good game all around. Keene played a fine game as well.”
Chaitin Giessen paced the Orange at the plate with a home run, while Curtis Seaman (2), Collin Farrell and Arthur Jennings all registered doubles.
Sandiford was credited with the win in over four innings of work, while Brandon Dumas was tagged with the loss.

TICONDEROGA — Robby Knowles belted three hits as Jack Tolosky, Ryan Whalen and Rob Hartman each added two in the Hornets’ seven-run win.
“We really struggled receiving the ball behind the plate,” Sentinels coach Dan Dorsett said. “They scored two runs in the first inning on a past ball, and they were moving runners at will.
“They got key hits when they needed them, and we really struggled defensively. When they got up big, they didn’t go into cruise control.”
Ty Denno and Anthony Costello each paced Ticonderoga with two hits apiece.
