North Syracuse eliminates Colonie

Mike Chemielewski pulled Colonie even in the top of the sixth with a two-out RBI single. Then, Kalica escaped a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the bottom half of the sixth inning with a pair of timely strikeouts.

That gave Colonie the momentum it needed for the seventh inning. Jeff Gerard belted an RBI double to break the 1-1 tie, and Jake Mullen's squeeze bunt brought home two more runs thanks to a throwing error on the play to help the All-Stars build a 5-1 lead.

Kalica handled the rest, retiring the side in order in the bottom of the seventh inning for the victory and first place in Colonie's pool.

The team included Zack Bleau, Mike Chemielewski, Ken Curione, Brendan Durkee, Jeff Gerard, Dylan Hardy, Chris Kalica, Jake Mullen, Chris Rogan, Joe Schupp, Matt Snyder and Matt Wadsworth.""
