HAMBURG, NY – After an afternoon scramble to determine where the AMCC conference game will be played, Medaille College gave up their home field advantage to play on campus diamond at Hilbert College in between all the rain drops. With the first pitch off the mound at 4 pm, Medaille went on a 7-run first inning cruise to a (12-3) 5-inning victory. After a brief delay, the Hawks surrendered 3 runs early in game two and never recovered (13-6). Hilbert drops to 8-8 overall and 2-4 in conference. Medaille moves to 11-7 and 5-1.
