Final Error Costly In Frewsburg Loss

CATTARAUGUS – The fifth and final error proved to be costly for Frewsburg in a protested game in Division 2 baseball.

Cattaraugus-Little Valley (6-3, 8-3) scored a run in the last of the seventh inning on a error and beat Frewsburg (5-3, 7-7), 4-3, on Tuesday afternoon.

The protest came after the first inning when Frewsburg coach Jay Grann said Ryan Hanft was balking. It will be up to the Cattaraugus County Umpires Association’s rules committee to make a final decision.

With the score tied at 3-3 entering the last of the seventh inning, the hosts scored the winning run when Jared Frary reached on a one-out error, he took second on an infield out and scored on a throwing error.

Frewsburg tied it up at 3-3 in the top of the seventh inning when Christian Proctor walked, took second on a passed ball and came around on two wild pitches.

The Bears took a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning on an error and Brett Johnson’s double.

Cattaraugus-Little Valley came right back with three in the fourth on another error and a two-run single by Frary.

Sam Agnew was the winning pitcher in relief and the hosts survived five hit batters and eight walks.

Trevor Spicer went the distance for the Bears, allowing five hits with five strikeouts and two walks.

Agnew and Hanft held the Bears to doubles by Bryce Peterson and Brett Johnson and a single by Spicer.
