Little Falls baseball stays undefeated vs. Mohawk
By BRIAN SANDLER
LITTLE FALLS, N.Y. (WKTV) - Mohawk might have been the "home" team Saturday at Little Falls, but it was the Mounties looking right at home with a 3-0 victory to stay perfect this season.
The Center State Conference Division I rivals are playing both regular-season matchups at Little Falls this season due to Mohawk's field being under construction, and Saturday's game was designated as Mohawk's home contest. But with Devin Mannuzza throwing a complete-game one-hit shutout for Little Falls, the Mohicans had no advantage.
Little Falls is now 8-0 overall and 4-0 in league play while Mohawk falls to 3-5 (1-3).
Mannuzza, who retired 14 straight batters during the middle of the game, finished with 10 strikeouts and two walks, both coming in the first inning. Alex Chlus gave Mannuzza all the support he'd need with a two-run single in the first and Ryan Dawley added an RBI single in the fifth that drove in Mannuzza for the game's final run.
John LeClair also went the distance in a losing effort for Mohawk.
Little Falls followed up the victory with another over visiting Edmeston 12-3 to improve to 9-0 overall. Pat Shepardson led the offensive charge with a home run and three RBIs.
