Avoca-Prattsburgh 7, Dundee-Bradford 2

Haden Abbott threw a complete game 4-hitter with seven strikeouts to earn the win as Avoca-Prattsburgh downed Dundee-Bradford, 7-2.

At the plate for A-P (13-6), senior catcher Ashton McMahon had his second straight three-hit game going 3-for-4 with two RBI’s, Pacey Hopkins had two doubles while Macoy Putnam (two runs), Sawyer Devoe (RBI), Sam Patterson (2 RBI’s), James Forte (RBI) and Tucker Gerych had hits.

Tyler Spina was 2-for-3 for Dundee-Bradford (5-9) while Logan Ayers and Jeremy Stiles (RBI) had hits. Matt Mason, up from the JV team, tossed a complete game with three strikeouts.

A-P hosts Alfred-Almond today at 5 p.m. for senior night, as they honor Sam Patterson, Tucker Gerych, Ashton McMahon and Pacey Hopkins.

“Mason threw well for them and after getting behind 7-0 in the third, they played tough baseball the rest of the way,” said Avoca-Prattsburgh coach Dennie Miles. “Their field was not playable, they have games through Saturday but their athletic director and coach Steve Spina agreed to move the game to Avoca and the umpires from that board came over and did the game. It was a class move by their program and the umps to get this game in for the kids.”

Miles was also pleased with the hitting.

“After a tough game with Hornell the night before and getting 10 hits against great pitching, the team hit well the first three innings and scored seven runs, then fatigue seemed to settle in,” Miles said. “But Ashton continues to hit the ball well and Pacey just missed three doubles today.”
