ITHACA, N.Y. – The Oswego State (5-9) baseball team pounded out nine hits, but could not plate a run in a 6-0 loss in Ithaca (9-3).
Ithaca took a 2-0 lead in in the bottom of the first inning thanks to a lead-off walk and a home run to right field before an out was made.
The Lakers tried to get back in the game in the second inning, but they would strand the bases loaded. Ed Charles (Jr., Auburn, N.Y.) and Andrew Lazzaro (Jr., Oswego, N.Y.) both singled with two outs and Brian Hamilton (Fr., Liverpool, N.Y.) walked to load the bases, but a strikeout ended the threat.
Ithaca added to its lead in the third, fifth and seventh innings, going up 6-0 before the Lakers made one last threat to score in the ninth.
Charles opened the frame with a single and Hamilton added a one-out single, but a pair of strikeouts ended the game with Bombers in front 6-0.
Matt Miller (Jr., Montoursville, Pa.) and Charles each had two hits for the Lakers, while Adam Bishop (Jr., Camillus, N.Y.) took the loss during a tough day for four Laker pitchers.
Oswego State returns to action on Wednesday when it travels to Utica for a non-conference doubleheader.
