Hornell Dodgers (1-3) vs Niagara Power (1-5)
Friday, June 8th - 7:00 P.M.
Maple City Park – Hornell, N.Y.
NIAGARA FALLS N.Y. – The Niagara Power are not off to the best of starts, but that hasn’t stopped the players from continuing to work hard. After last night’s loss at home to the Rochester Ridgemen, several infielders, after most of the lights at Sal Maglie Stadium was turned off, went back out to take grounders. The Power tied the game on the team’s first home run of the re-born Power thanks to an inside the park home run from Tre Pankratz in the bottom of the 7th inning, only to lose the lead and give up 3 runs in the 9th on 3 errors.
The Power are right back at it this evening with a date with the defending champion Hornell Dodgers at 7 P.M. The Dodgers are looking to turn around the way they have started the season as well, going 1-3 and as a team is hitting .230 and a 5.00 ERA. The Power are being led by David Wessells at the plate who is hitting .500 followed by Kolbly Blanchard at .330 and Nick Carlini at .300. However, the team as a whole would like to improve on its .214 batting average and 7.41 ERA. The Power in the first 6 games has given up 12 errors for a fielding percentage of 0.917, something they would like to clean up.
