A quick run around the diamond 5/1

Troy (2-5, 3-5)
bounced back from a tough loss to CBA on Wednesday to beat Catholic Central 8-2 on Thursday. Pitcher Nick Pontari was solid throwing four innings of shut out ball in relief. Mason Duncan had a pair of RBIs including a big two out RBI double in the fifth that broke a 2-2 tie.
Andrew Christie walked three times and came around to score all three times.
The future looks bright for the Crusaders (2-5, 2-7) though as sophomore pitcher Rory Sweeney was impressive before he seemed to run out of gas in the sixth. They also start two eighth graders, Bradley Adams at catcher and Jack Leroux at second.
Catholic Central's Chris Cahill (5) is out as Troy first baseman Mike Marsh squeezes the throw. (J.S. Carras — The Record).

In other Big 10 action the Albany High Falcons beat up on CBA with a 9-0 win. Michael Hughes pitched six and two-thirds innings, gave up just two hits and struck out seven to pick up the win. Jevonte Osterhout drove in three runs and reached base five times on two doubles and three walks.
The Falcons, who also beat Amsterdam on Wednesday, are the surprise team in the league so far their only loss coming to power house La Salle.
The Falcons now move in to second place in the Big 10 behind the Cadets who improved to 8-0 with a 9-5 win over Schenectady.

The Suburban Council remains as hard to predict as ever with Shaker topping Colonie 1-0. Drew Chance hit the game winning RBI single in the bottom of the ninth to give the Bison (4-2, 8-2) the victory.
Guilderland (4-2, 6-5) picked up its second straight win prevailing 7-5 over Niskayuna and Columbia stayed red hot with a 5-0 win over Burnt Hills. Bethlehem (5-2, 9-4) kept pace with the Blue Devils in the Gold Division with a 9-0 win over Averill Park.

In the Colonial Council Mark Pretierra hit a two-run home run and that was all the Cohoes Tigers (6-4, 10-4) needed in a 2-1 win over Voorheesville. Ravena (8-1, 10-2) is all alone atop the Colonial and routed Albany Academy 15-3 on Thursday.

Waterford won a non-league contest 6-3 over Mechanicville. The Fordians are undefeated at 6-0 in the CHVL and 9-0 overall.
