Heath Holder and Orlando Rivera had two hits and one run apiece Thursday, but the Oneonta Outlaws fell, 9-5, to the visiting Watertown Wizards in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League.
Oneonta's second straight loss at Damaschke Field kept it in a two-way tie for second place in the nine-team league with Newark, which also fell to 11-8 on the season with a 5-4 loss to Glens Falls on Thursday. Amsterdam (16-3) extended its lead over Oneonta and Newark to five games with a 2-1 defeat of Mohawk Valley.
Jordan Enos' three-run double off Outlaws reliever Spencer Thomas in the ninth all but sealed it for the Wizards (8-11), who scored four times in the inning on two hits and two walks.
Oneonta starter Nathaniel Abel (0-2) limited Watertown to two hits in five scoreless innings before giving up four runs on four hits and two errors in the sixth. Reliever Ben Mordini walked four batters in the seventh and threw a run-scoring wild pitch. Clay Bates then struck out the side in order in the eighth before Watertown pulled away in the ninth.
Clay Holcomb contributed a hit, a run and an RBI for Oneonta, which scored twice on three hits in the ninth.
The Outlaws host a non-leaguer against the Albany Athletics at 7 tonight.
Hawkeyes 8, Elmira 6
Tyler Mautner went 2-for-5 with three RBIs to lead visiting Cooperstown. Matt Urakami contributed two hits and two RBIs for the Hawkeyes (7-13), who are one game ahead of last-place Elmira (6-14).
Cooperstown hosts the Albany Dutchmen at 5 p.m. today.
