Margaretville 19, Gilboa 7 (Tuesday)
The Blue Devils dealt a hardy loss to visiting Gilboa last Tuesday, defeating the Wildcats 19-7. The Blue Devils jumped out to an early lead, scoring seven runs in the first inning to Gilboa’s one.
“Gilboa did score an unearned run in the first inning – we had an error in the infield – but we came up at the bottom of the first inning and scored seven runs,” said Margaretville Head Coach Rick Funck. “Chris Costa led off with a walk, Cody Fronckowiak singled, and Patrick O’Connell hit a triple. We only had three hits, but Patrick had a triple to knock in a couple runs and we scored a couple more that inning on sac flies.”
