Burghers' season suffers setbacks, Warriors charge ahead

Corinth 8

Warrensburg 7

CORINTH - The Corinth Baseball team turned the tables on their Warrensburg counterparts Monday as they pulled out a last-stanza 8-7 win on their home field.

The dramatic contest seemed to score revenge over Warrensburg's 6-5 similar last-minute victory when the two teams last played about two weeks ago.

Corinth's Trevor Sherrange, who ended up with two hits in the game, started the bottom of the sixth inning with a base hit and scored the eventual game-winner in this Adirondack League matchup.

John Joseph pitched for the Burgers.

Mike Perrone slugged an RBI double for Warrensburg. With this loss, Warrensburg falls to 4-3 in the league, 5-6 overall.

Lake George 9

Warrensburg 2

WARRENSBURG - Lake George Pitcher J.D. Jenkins showed his versatility April 30 as his team, surprising prognosticators this year, defeated Warrensburg April 30.

The victory continues the Warriors' improbable, remarkable winning streak that few expected from the young squad which was recoiling this year from graduating 10 Senior athletes.

In this showdown between the Northway rivals, the Warriors extended thetradition of poise and power set by the 2009 squad that won the Adirondack League crown in a come-from-behind victory.

Jennings allowed four hits through five innings and was 3 for 4 at the plate with five RBIs as he led his squad, ever full of surprises, past the solid Warrensburg on their home field.

Jenkins' teammate Vinny Crocitto added two RBIs for the Warriors.

Mike Perrone blasted a double and tallied two hits for Warrensburg. Brendan Frye pitched for the Burghers.

With the win, Lake George advances to 7-1 in the Adirondack League and 8-3 overall. Warrensburg drops back to 2-2 in the league and 5-5 overall.
