Cazenovia, N.Y. – After extending their home winning streak to nine games with their doubleheader sweep Tuesday over Keuka College, the Hilbert College baseball team ran into trouble Wednesday losing to Cazenovia College 7-6 and 9-5.


In game one, Sam Gioia (West Seneca West/West Seneca, NY) hit a home run and Glen Ufland (Bishop Timon/Buffalo, NY) scored on a Cazenovia error to tie the game at six in the top of the seventh inning. Ufland was credited with the loss when the Wildcats scored in the bottom of the seventh inning. Gioia, Brendan Mullen (Oakfield-Alabama/Oakfield, NY), and Wally Skrzynski (Lackawanna/Lackawanna, NY) each had two hits to lead the Hawks offense.
