Cayuga Community College Baseball opened up East Division play with a home sweep of SUNY Adirondack behind strong efforts at the plate and on the mound Thursday.

Bradley Soto-Diaz's four-RBI day led the Spartans' attack in the opening 13-3 win, then Austin Miller dominated on the mound to take a 4-0 win in the second contest. The wins marked the 99th and 100th victories for Cayuga's Baseball program since the inaugural season in 2018-2019.

The Spartans trailed 3-2 in the fourth inning of the opener when Mike DeRosa singled home Brandon Hoftijzer to tie the game. Soto-Diaz followed that up by smashing his first homer of the year, putting Cayuga in front 5-3. Cayuga added eight runs over the next two innings, with Soto singling home two more in the fifth and Perry Chetney hitting RBI singles in the fifth and sixth innings.

Soto-Diaz went two-for-five, scoring twice to go with his homer and four RBI. Chetney and DeRosa had three RBI, Alex Gaudet scored three times, and Hoftijzer went three-for-three with a triple, two RBI, and three runs scored.

In the second game, Miller pitched out of trouble in the first and then didn't allow a runner to reach third base through the sixth inning. Cayuga scored in the first inning on an RBI single by Juan Perez, then scored in the second and fourth on defensive miscues by the Timberwolves.

Miller finished with five strikeouts while scattering four hits through six innings. DeRosa again scored twice, and Dolan and Hoftijzer each scored once.

Cayuga improves to 7-5 on the season with the sweep. They are on the road Saturday, March 30, to end the regular season series against SUNY Adirondack. First pitch of the doubleheader is scheduled for noon.
