Cayuga Community College Baseball finished the season sweep of SUNY Adirondack by taking both halves of an away doubleheader on Saturday.

After winning two home games Thursday against the Timberwolves, the Spartans relied on strong starts from Cam Langille and Jared King to take Saturday's contests by finals of 7-4 and 6-4. Cayuga improves to 9-5 on the season and is now 4-0 in East Division play.

"We played really good baseball today," said Cayuga Coach John Rizzo. "I'm proud of the team and the identity they are adapting. We're finding ways to win close games, which we'll need for the rest of the season."

Cayuga trailed 3-1 in the opener before plating four in the fifth to take the lead. The Spartans tied the game on Mike DeRosa's RBI single, then took the lead when DeRosa scored on Bradley Soto-Diaz's triple. Cayuga added two insurance runs in the seventh on a sacrifice fly by Brandon Hoftijzer and a single by Alex Gaudet.

Jacob Laird went two-for-three in the opener, Soto-Diaz and Gaudet both scored twice, and six different Spartans had one RBI. Langille picked up the win, allowing four runs in five-plus innings.

The Spartans trailed early in the second game before a four-run third inning gave them the lead. Kevin Dolan's double started the frame, with five more Spartans singling and DeRosa, Hoftijzer and Juan Perez driving-in runs. The Spartans added two more in the fifth on Perry Chetney's two-run homer.

King earned his first collegiate win, throwing four-plus innings and allowing three runs. Chetney went three-for-four with the homer, two runs scored and two RBI, and Soto-Diaz went two-for-four with two runs scored.

Cayuga is back home Tuesday, April 2, to host Hudson Valley Community College. First pitch is scheduled for 2 p.m.
