Genesee Rolls to a Doubleheader Sweep of Cayuga

Genesee powered its way to a doubleheader sweep of Cayuga CC on Sunday afternoon, winning both games in five innings, 8-0 and 17-3.

Mackenzie Weber faced just four batters over the minimum in game one, shutting out Cayuga by allowing just two hits, a pair of singles in the fourth inning.

GCC capitalized on a fielding error in the bottom of the first to take the lead for good. Weber reached on a two out single and scored when an Abigail Noeth fly ball to left was mishandled.

The Cougars added five runs in the second, highlighted by RBI doubles from Sydney Brenton and Weber, and RBI's from Shiori Ubukata and Marissa Draper, to take a 6-0 lead.

Noeth delivered a two run double in the fourth to up the GCC lead to 8-0 and finished game one 2-3 with three RBI's. Weber went 3-3 at the plate with three runs scored and an RBI and Ubukata scored a pair of runs and collected two hits.

Weber, who struck out six, worked around a leadoff walk in the fifth to retire the Spartans to end game one.

 

The Cougars wasted little time in game two, scoring four runs in the top of the first to jump out to an early lead. Brenton led off with one of three straight extra base hits for Genesee, reaching on a triple and scoring the game's first run on an RBI double by Ubukata. Weber followed with an RBI double of her own and eventually came around to score on a Cayuga fielding error.

Karli Phillips put together a complete game effort of her own on the mound in game two, allowing just three first inning runs to the Spartans before throwing scoreless innings the rest of the way. Phillips struck out six and allowed seven hits.

Weber highlighted a seven run third inning with a grand slam, her sixth home run of the season. GCC added to its lead with six runs in the fifth and ended the game in the bottom of the frame when Phillips pitched a clean half inning and struck out two.

Brenton went 3-4 and scored twice in game two, Weber was 2-3 with five runs batted in and three runs scored, Amanda Stratton added two hits and an RBI and Draper collected two hits, scored twice and drove in a run.

Genesee improves to 12-10 overall and 10-4 in Region III play. The Cougars will travel to Corning CC on Tuesday for a doubleheader beginning at 3 p.m.
