The Gliders built back the lead to 8-2 with two in the 6th and three more in the 7th. Hornell didn’t go away and scored two in the bottom of the 7th. Hughes collected a RBI single and Hernandez scored on a wild pitch.
Dansville scored an important insurance run in the 8th as the Steamers put together a rally in the 9th. Hughes led off with a walk, Bryson Rigsby (Webster) was hit by a pitch, and Johnson followed with a two-run triple to right center. With the tying run on deck, James Feriolli was able to induce two fly outs and a groundout to close the contest.
Johnson led the Steamers with a 3 for 4 day while Hughes was 2 for 4.
Shane Wockley was 3 for 4 with a RBI while Alfred Hoti was 3 for 5 with 3 RBI. Johnny Briody also finished with three hits.
Dansville used five different pitchers. Caleb Clements didn’t allow a hit in the first three innings while Ivan Navarro worked 1.2 innings and got the Gliders out of a jam.
Braden Consaul (Fairport/USC Upstate) allowed three earned runs in six innings of work for Hornell.
