ECIC I) own two wins over usual power

On Mon­day, Clarence took care of an­other big­gie, de­feat­ing Lan­caster, 9-3, be­hind se­nior right-han­der Jon White.

Clarence and Lan­caster will meet again to­day at Clarence un­der the unique sched­ul­ing for­mat that ECIC I and ECIC II to which coaches have agreed. Each team will face a divi­sion op­po­nent on a Mon­day and Tues­day of the same week, leav­ing Wed­nes­day and Fri­day open for make­ups.

“It’s some­thing the coaches talked about for a while,” Smith said of the sched­ul­ing plan. “I like it. It’s like a se­ries, the way base­ball is sup­posed to be.”

White, who shut out Or­chard Park last week, pitched a four-hit­ter on Mon­day.

“He does a nice good job of get­ting the ball over the plate,” Smith said. “We’ve got a good field­ing team. We feel can go get the ball as long as he throws strike.”

White had just two walks in his first 13 in­nings this spring. He walked two in the first in­ning on Mon­day, but got used to the windy con­di­tions at Lan­caster and set­tled down.

Jack Put­ney had three hits, in­clud­ing two dou­bles, scored twice and drove in three runs for Clarence. John Stevens had two hits, scored once and drove in a run.

Bil­lies win in 16th in­ning

Jack­son pitched two in­nings for the win. Jeff Ran­dall started and went four and two-thirds for the Bil­lies be­fore Tom Dinda and pitched through the 14th.

Shawn Ger­ber pitched shutout ball for Sweet Home for eight in­nings. Ean Poko­rski pitched the last seven for the Pan­thers.
