AVOCA — The Avoca-Prattsburgh baseball team has had some outstanding pitching performances this season, including a no-hitter tossed by junior Haden Abbott.

On Saturday, sophomore lefty Macoy Putnam tossed a complete-game one-hitter as A-P ran their record to 3-3 by beating Bradford-Dundee in six innings, 10-0. 

Putnam struck out seven and walked two to improve to 1-0 on the season. Ian Gee got the lone hit for B-D in the fifth inning.

On offense, A-P was led by junior Sawyer Devoe who went 3-for-4 with a RBI and run, senior Ashton McMahon went 2-for-2 with two doubles, a RBI and scored a run.


Also for AP, Jamel Crowder went 2-for-4 with a RBI, stolen base and two runs, Putnam helped his cause going 2-for-4 with 3 RBI’s and a run, Tucker Gerych scored three runs and had a single, Evan Campbell had a RB, Pacey Hopkins doubled and Chris Abbott had a single.

“We had two tough losses in the seventh inning, 2-1 to Arkport-Canaseraga and 4-1 to Addison, so this was a much-needed win for us,” said A-P coach Dennie Miles. “Macoy gave us everything we wanted on the mound, he was effective and kept his pitch count down.”

A-P has a rematch with Arkport-Canaseraga today at 5 p.m. in Avoca, plays at Andover-Whitesville on Tuesday at 5 p.m., at Campbell-Savona on Wedensday and at Canisteo-Greenwood/JT on Friday.
