Alec Teska (St. John Fisher College) fanned eight batters over six innings of two-run ball to lead the Blue Jays. The 6-foot right-hander retired seven consecutive hitters between the third and fifth innings, including three straight via strikeout on the way to his league-leading fourth win of the season. Teska is 4-0 this summer.

Tyler Holmes (University of Hartford) clobbered a go-ahead, two-run shot in the fourth for a 4-2 lead. Overall, the 5-foot-11 catcher went 2-of-3 and crossed the plate twice.

Patrick Bigham (SUNY Fredonia) and Shane Hake (Elmira College) both hit an RBI single. Noah Campanelli (St. John Fisher College) tripled and drew a walk. Owen VanNewkirk (Misericordia College) singled and reached on an error. The 6-foot-4 first baseman scored on Nolan Hicks’s sacrifice fly in the second inning.

For the Orioles, Jorge Oropeza (Finger Lakes Community College) and Jack Scanlon (Washington and Jefferson University) both singled. Scanlon put the team on the scoreboard with an RBI groundout in the third. Zach Carpin (Clarkson University) doubled and scored on Jon Catapano’s (Grand Valley State University) groundout to tie the game.

On the mound, Jake Conklin fanned three batters in four frames of work.
