It did not take long for the Syracuse Salt Cats to get back into the swing of things as they sent the Generals back to base with a mercy rule, 13-0 win in 7 innings. The Salt Cats have scored 31 runs in the past 12 innings moving to 8-1 on the young NYCBL season.
Connor Wilson ( Dayton University) and Chase Nowak (East Stroudsburg) were named NYCBL Player of the Night and NYCBL Pitcher of the Night respectively as their performances were second to none.
Chase Nowak (East Stroudsburg) pitched 5 complete innings and was solid through his outing getting the win. He moves to 2-0 on the season and struck out 3 while giving up a stingy, 2 hits. Strong support from Billy Wildeman (Molloy) covered the win for the Salt Cats. Wildemen gave up no hits and K'd 2 in his relief appearance and has been strong every time out.
Offensively the power and speed of the scratchy Cats was just too much for the weary Generals. Connor Wilson (pictured) (Dayton University) lead the attack going 3-3 with a double, 2 runs scored and 3 RBI's. He stole a base in his effort. Scottie O'Bryan (Siena) added 2 hits with a triple while scoring 2 runs and stealing 2 bases. James Messina (Molloy) and Marshall Winn (U of Albany) combined for 4 runs and two more hits. Jonathan Cepeda ( St. Thomas Aquinas) topped it all off with a double, two RBI's and a stolen base.
The Salt Cats have a day off with some side work on Monday as they prepare for a road trip to play the Cortland Crush on Tuesday.
Tune in on Tuesday by watching on the NYCBL Digital Network. Game time is listed on the Salt Cats schedule as a 6pm first pitch.

The Salt Cats came into the NYCBL in 2010 after playing in the Eastern Collegiate Baseball League for two seasons. We have had several players from several Colleges and Universities located throughout the United States and Canada and have enjoyed the experiences and quality of the soon to be 41 year old New York Collegiate Baseball League. The NYCBL is one of the most historic Collegiate Summer Baseball Leagues in America and is funded by Major League Baseball. All members of the NYCBL belong to the National Alliance of Collegiate Summer Baseball and are governed by NCAA rules and regulations. The league is partially funded by Major League Baseball.
