CANANDAIGUA - The MCC baseball team ran its winning streak to nine games with a pair of victories over Finger Lakes Community College Tuesday afternoon.
The Tribunes prevailed 9-5 and 6-5 to move to 21-18 on the season. The two teams will do battle once again on Thursday, this time at Monroe.
The Lakers got one back in the bottom half of the first and tacked on another in the fourth to cut it to 3-2. It stayed that way until the sixth, when Monroe put up a four-spot.
Loew doubled in a run to make it 4-2 before Logan Martella-Tasick singled in Ferranti to push the lead to three. TJ Lucey followed with a sacrifice fly, and Anthony May capped the inning with a run-scoring two-bagger.
MCC then added two more in the seventh on a Loew sac fly and a wild pitch.
Brennen Smith came through with the clutch hit in game two, breaking a 3-3 tie with a two-run homer in the top of the sixth. That helped Monroe rally from an early two-run deficit.
Smith finished 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored, and Ferranti and Andrew Czubaj also added two hits. Lucey drove in a pair of runs.
Frankie Pizzo picked up the win on the hill, tossing five innings while striking out five.
