Windsor’s Paige Rauch hit a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth inning and pitched a six-hit complete game with 10 strikeouts as the Black Knights beat Oneonta 2-0 on Saturday in the Southern Tier Athletic Conference.
Rauch won a pitcher’s dual, only walking one batter and getting out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the sixth inning. It was her first start of the season. Brieanna Baker of Oneonta pitched a complete game, striking out 11 and allowing one walk with six hits.
“Bri Baker’s an all-state pitcher, very experienced, had a good year last year, and has always pitched well against us,” Windsor coach Bill Waldron said. “I was figuring for a low-scoring game.”
Windsor took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning. Mara Kohlbach led off with a single up the middle, then was sacrificed to second base by Rachael Deangelo. Allison Lockwood drove in Kohlbach with a single to left field, one of her two hits on the afternoon. Lockwood, as catcher, also threw out two baserunners.
Oneonta loaded the bases in the sixth inning on three consecutive infield singles before Rauch got a strikeout for the first out, then a fielder’s choice at home on a grounder to the third baseman, then another strikeout.
“I was looking to just give one run with a two-run lead and we got the ball hit in the right spot,” Waldron said. “Very fortunate in that situation to get out of the inning.”
Oneonta is 1-1. Windsor (2-0) plays three games in three days this weekend: at Chenango Forks on Monday, at Owego on Tuesday and at Johnson City on Wednesday at 1 p.m.
