Chenango Valley Warriors: 10
Chenango Forks Blue Devils: 4

As the Warriors entered the top of the seventh inning they were tied 4-4 with their rivals from across the river, but by the end of the seventh it was clear who was the undefeated team. The Chenango Valley Warriors varsity baseball team beat the Chenango Forks Blue Devils 10-4 Friday night at Chenango Forks High School. CV is now 11-0 on the season. CV came out strong, scoring two runs in the first inning, and another two runs in the third on a towering 2-run HR by Brian Stinson that rolled almost all the way to the CF parking lot. The next three innings, CV cooled down and Forks (2-7) heated up. Geoff Daniels and DJ Smith each got hits to help Forks rally to score one run in the 4th, and two runs in the 6th to tie the score. In the top of the seventh, a walk from Eric Bidwell and Derek Stupski, and a single by Dan Pendleton loaded the bases for Stinson. He smoke a bases-clearing, three RBI triple to center field to make it 7-4 CV. Taylor Howard reached first on an error, and then Vince Palmieri hit a two out, three-run HR to make it 10-4 CV. Starting pitcher Pendleton led the Warriors for 6 and 2/3 innings, turning the ball over to Stupski to get the final out of the inning. Stupski struck out four in 1 1/3 innings getting the win for the Warriors (11-0). Chenango Valley’s next game is Monday night at Owego.
