PLATTSBURGH — The second-seeded Meron’s Expos and third-seeded Fourth Ward Cardinals split two competitive games, setting up a deciding game in Plattsburgh this coming Sunday.
In the opener, Billy Davis struck out five and allowed four hits in going the distance for the pitching win.
Mark Passino led the Expos with a single, double and two RBI, while Cliff Conners added two singles and a RBI, and Glenn Engstrom a double.
The Cardinals held a 1-0 lead before the Expos tallied two in the bottom of the fifth for a 2-1 advantage. The Cardinals then tied it with a run in the sixth, only to have Meron’s get three in the home half.
C.J. Worley paced the Fourth Ward with a single and double, while Nate Durkee chipped in a RBI double.
The second game went into extra innings, with the score tied at 1-all.
The Cardinals went ahead with two in the eighth, but the Expos knotted it in the home half of the inning when Jordan Woods tripled in a run with two out and scored on an overthrow of third base.
The Fourth Ward, however, prevailed with three in the ninth.
Brandon Buksa, Joe Tolosky, Durkee and Steve Burris led the Cardinals with two hits apiece. Durkee had a double and two RBI, while Frank Buksa and Bret Bosley each had a double.
