Roenbeck's HR leads Senior Mariners

PLATTSBURGH — Chris Roenbeck capped a five-run first inning with a three-run homer and the Clinton County Senior Mariners went on to record an 11-3 victory over the Colchester Cannons at Lefty Wilson Field on Tuesday night.

Robby Knowles and Adam Goldfarb rapped out three hits for the Mariners (11-6), with Knowles driving in two runs and Goldfarb one.

Roenbeck finished with a homer, single and three RBI, while Logan Recor added two hits and two RBI in a 13-hit attack.

“We were able to get contributions from a lot of people in the line-up,” Mariners coach Matt Tolosky said. “We strung some hits together.”

Recor and Knowles each drove in a run in the first inning before Roenbeck homered over the fence in right.

Knowles added an RBI single in the second to make it 6-2 and Recor singled in a run in the fourth for a 7-3 advantage.

Clinton County then broke it open with four runs in the fifth, with Tanner Rascoe and Goldfarb delivering RBI hits.

Kasey Favreau pitched four innings to get the win, followed to the mound by Jeremy Barber and Ryan Meyer. Meyer struck out the side in the seventh.

“It was Kasey’s first start of the season and was nice to get him back on the mound,” Tolosky said.

The Mariners also played well defensively. Rascoe had six putouts in center and Brandon Rabideau threw a runner out at the plate from left field.

“It was a good team effort from everyone,” Tolosky said. “We swung the bats well and played good defense.”

Josh Rylant swung the big bat for the Cannons with two singles and a double, while Josh Jared Rylant finished with three singles.

Colchester (9-4) stranded 14 runners, including the bases loaded in the first and fifth inning.

The Mariners were playing a day after returning from the “Gubby” Tournament in Keene, New Hampshire. Colchester, meanwhile, played in a tournament in Rhode Island on Saturday, Sunday and Monday and stopped off in Plattsburgh to honor their commitment without returning home.
