Two strong starting pitching performances and a balanced lineup gave Cayuga Community College Baseball a pair of road wins against SUNY Adirondack on Thursday.

Behind pitchers Will Coleman and Luke Ough, the Spartans captured wins of 6-4 and 9-0 against the Timberwolves. The victories gave Cayuga a season series win over SUNY Adirondack and improved their record to 18-4 overall and 14-2 against Region III opponents.

"Great outings from Will and Luke today, we got production from top to bottom in the lineup, and our situational hitting was excellent," said Cayuga Coach John Rizzo. "Our goal is to win every series and our guys did that today against a good team."

Cayuga led from the start Thursday, with Mike Norton's triple scoring Caleb Delly in the first inning. With two outs in the third, Cayuga loaded the bases and scored two on a double by Juan Perez and one on a single by Ough to push the score to 4-0. Norton's two-run homer in the fifth pushed the lead to 6-0 before the Timberwolves added runs late.

Less than a week after he led the Spartans to a home win over the Timberwolves, Coleman came back to throw four scoreless innings to get the win in the opener, allowing four hits and striking out two. Norton finished three-for-three with two runs and three RBI, a homer and a triple. Delly scored twice and went two-for-four, and Perez had two RBI.

Ough dominated from the start in the second game, allowing only three hits over seven innings for the complete game shutout. At the plate the Spartans started the scoring in the second when Alex Gaudet doubled home Perez, and Perry Chetney and Roy Glaum both hit sacrifice-flys to make it 3-0. An RBI single by Bradley Soto and a two-RBI base hit by Gaudet made it 6-0 in the third before the Spartans scored solo runs in each of the last three innings.

Perez and Gaudet both collected two hits in the second game, with Perez scoring twice and Gaudet finishing with three RBI. Soto scored twice and had two RBI, Glaum had two RBI and Tyler Korsky went one-for-three with two runs scored.

Cayuga is back on the road Saturday, April 15, to face SUNY Broome. First pitch is scheduled for noon.
