By: Doug PageFriday, October 5, 2012 | Categories:
Elmira, NY - Fans were entertained by the Horseheads and Elmira Varsity baseball teams at Historic Dunn Field on Monday night. The Blue Raiders and Express suited up for a doubleheader after having their originally scheduled game rained out a couple weeks ago.
The Blue Raiders would get on the scoreboard early in the first game as they plated a run in the top of the first inning. Leading 1-0, Horseheads would tack on a pair of single runs in the middle frames en-route to a 3-0 win against the Express. Horseheads would hold Elmira to just hits and three base runners.
Elmira would try to turn the tide for the night cap as they would play the visitor role in the second game. The Express jumped out to an early 2-0 lead under the lights at Dunn Field as they looked for a split of the doubleheader. The Blue Raiders would not be silenced by the Express as they would muster a two run rally to knot the game up 2-2. The sixth inning seemed to be the most heart pounding one as the Express would take a 3-2 lead in the top half of the inning, but quickly see it go by the way side as the Blue Raiders would open up the scoring margin by plating five runs to take a 7-3 lead heading into the final frame. Horseheads would close the door on Elmira in the final inning to earn the doubleheader sweep.
