Collegiate baseball: Rams snap skid with win


ELMIRA – Matt Diorio and Shane Dressler provided three hits apiece as the Watertown Rams captured a 10-4 victory over the Elmira Pioneers in a Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball game Saturday night.

The Rams improved to 18-13 and moved into a tie with Newark for first place in the PGCBL West Division.

Elmira fell to 18-14 and sits a half-game out of first.

Diorio launched a deep home run to right field in the fifth inning to cut Elmira’s lead to 4-3. He then ripped a bases-clearing single in the sixth to give the Rams an 8-4 lead.

Earlier in the sixth inning, Santino Alteri beat out an infield single to score Dressler and give Watertown a 5-4 lead after Robbie Alessandrine singled to score Willi Martin to tie the game at four runs apiece.

Alessandrine also drove in a run with a groundout in the third inning.

The Rams bullpen threw four shutout innings to preserve the victory. Kyle Simmons threw a pair, Jake Sale worked the eighth and Jon Escobar finished it off with a 1-2-3 ninth inning. Anthony Magovney tossed five innings to pick up the win.

Ben Wylly’s RBI double in the third inning snapped a 19-inning scoreless streak for the Rams.

Watertown will wrap up its week-long road trip because of the Jefferson County Fair with a 7 p.m. game tonight at Utica.

The Rams return home to host Amsterdam at 7 p.m. Monday at the Alex T. Duffy Fairgrounds.
