(2019-04-16)Tioga County Sports Report
BINGHAMTON â€” Chelsea Sellars fired a one-hitter, striking out 17 in the process as Owego snapped out of a two-game tailspin with a 6-1 non-league victory over Chenango Valley here Tuesday.
Sellars retired 10 of the first 11 batters she faced, hitting one, before the Warriors ended her shutout bid. CV was able to parlay a walk, single and error into a run in the bottom of the fourth inning.
By then, the Indians had scored all their runs â€” more than enough to secure the win.
Owego picked up its initial run its first at-bats. Emma Stevenson singled with one away and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Grace Thomas. Stevenson would steal third and score on Miki Worzelâ€™s single to left field.
The Indians tacked on four more runs in the third. Emma Howe led off with a triple and Stevenson followed with a double. Thomas was hit by a pitch, Worzel walked, Abby Shirley reached on a fielderâ€™s choice, Taylor Aubel singled, Anna Felice walked and Sellars singled. Howe scored on an error, Stevenson and Thomas tallied on wild pitches, and Shirley scored on the Sellars hit, giving Owego a 5-0 cushion.
Owego added its final run on back-to-back singles by Thomas and Worzel in the fourth.
After CV scored, Sellars struck out 11 of the final 14 batters while surrendering three walks to end the Warriorsâ€™ three-game win streak.
Six Indians had multiple-hit games. Stevenson was 2-for-4 with a triple, double and two runs; Thomas went 2-for-2 with two runs and was plunked once; Worzel was 2-for-3 with two RBI; Shirley was 2-for-4 with a triple and a run; Aubel went 2-for-3 and Sellars was 2-for-with an RBI. Howe contributed a triple and a run; and Ashley Allen added a single.
Owego (3-3) visits Vestal (2-2) at 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
