Hornets, Sentinels capture wins at Mingo Bay Classic

MYRTLE, BEACH, S.C. — Jack Tolosky wasn’t on his game the day before.

Wednesday, he was.

The senior struck out four, walked one and allowed two hits in tossing a 69-pitch shutout and went 3-for-4 at the plate to lead Plattsburgh High to a 5-0 victory over Westfield at the Mingo Bay Classic.

The game was scoreless until the Hornets scored three runs in the sixth and added two more in the seventh.

“Jack was outstanding (Wednesday) and pitched a gem,” Plattsburgh coach Jim Manchester said. “He is such a competitor. We knew he would give us a chance to win after struggling (Tuesday). He hit his spots and kept their hitters off balance throughout.

“Jack also started the rally in the sixth inning with a bunt single. He was sacrificed to second by Ryan Whalen and scored on an error. Shawn Courson drove in the second run with a single and later came around to score on another Westfield error. Alex Follmer had the other hit in the inning.”

Winning pitcher Jarryn Granger walked one and struck out eight in going the first 5.1 innings for the Sentinels. Ryan Trudeau finished up.

Ticonderoga erased a 3-2 deficit with four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to take the lead for good.

Blake Gautreau was the lone Sentinel with two hits.

“Gautreau had two big RBI for us,” Ticonderoga coach Dan Dorsett said. “His second hit plated the game-winning run.

“This was the make-up game of a rained out game the day before.”
