To say I was late to the party for Friday's Lansingburgh-LaSalle game would be an understatement. I've said all along that trying to make it for a 4:15 game after work would be a dicey proposition, and Friday was proof of that.
When I got there, Lansingburgh was up, 8-3, in the home 6th. What I missed was LaSalle's Jon Weber putting on a virtual one-man show for the visiting Cadets, hitting two home runs and driving in all 3 Cadet runs. However, what did in LaSalle was an uncharacteristically sloppy game on defense, as while Weber and the bullpen held the Knights to just 5 hits, three Cadet errors were the difference in the game, as Lansingburgh, now 4-2, handed LaSalle their first loss by that 8-3 score.
Meanwhile, in Albany, the Troy High softball team finally broke into the win column, beating the Lady Falcons, 6-3. Conversely, the Albany baseball team also got off the schneid, as they handed Troy their 3rd straight loss, 3-2. Both teams are now 1-3 on the young season.
Albany Academy for Boys continues to roll, as they ran their record to 4-0 by thumping Cobleskill-Richmondville, 11-3
Unlike in the Suburban Council, teams in the Colonial Council play home & home series, so LaSalle will have an opportunity to avenge yesterday's loss when Lansingburgh comes to Geer Field in a couple of weeks. Likewise, Academy will be visiting Cobleskill soon.
