Jenny Colaianni of Sonny’s Service Center, left, stands on third base and looks toward home plate to watch her teammates score after hitting an RBI triple in the top of the first inning of Tuesday night’s Sullivan County Women’s Softball League game. Making sure Colaianni doesn’t run home is CRMC third baseman Karen McCoy.

Sonny’s Service Center earns a softball victory against CRMC

By Rob Potter
MONTICELLO — Sonny’s Service Center grabbed a 9-0 lead in the top of the first inning in its Sullivan County Women’s Softball League (SCWSL) game against Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC) on Tuesday night at Kenneth H. Somerville Field in Monticello.
Because of that early lead, Sonny’s went on to post a 24-7 victory over CRMC.
During Sonny’s first time at bat in the contest, Jenny Colaianni hit a two-run triple and scored when the throw to third base was errant to give the team a 3-0 advantage.
Later in the frame, Kathy Jo Hoyt hit a two-run double and Chris Martinek, Chrisseda Besson and Shannon Parlapiano all had RBI singles.
CRMC (2-7) answered by scoring two runs in the bottom of the first. The first three batters of the frame – Cathy Belancia, Jen Smith and Karen McCoy – all singled. Kristin Brucher then beat out a ground ball to safely reach first base, which enabled Belancia to cross home plate for the team’s first run of the evening.
Smith scored when Jessica Youmans reached base on a fielder’s choice.
Cathy Herbert then singled to once again put a runner at every base. But Sonny’s pitcher Hoyt retired the next two batters so her team could maintain its seven-run lead at 9-2.
Sonny’s (8-6) scored 10 runs in the top of the second to increase its advantage to 19-2. Key hits in the inning included a two-run single by Brittany Hoyt and RBI singles by Besson, Colaianni and Janet Calangelo.
CRMC got one of those runs back in the bottom of the second. Donna Feeney led off with an infield hit and scored when McCoy reached base on a fielder’s choice.
Besson scored a run for Sonny’s in the top of the third when Parlapiano walked with the bases loaded.
Sonny’s registered its last four runs of the evening in the top of the fourth. With the bases loaded and no outs, Carly Sklar blasted a double to center field which allowed her three teammates – Colaianni, Calangelo and Brittany Hoyt – to cross home plate.
Sklar then scored when Martinek singled to center field.
CRMC recorded two runs in the bottom of the fourth. McCoy singled to bring Feeney in to score and Belancia scored on a fielder’s choice by Brucher to make it a 24-5 game.
CRMC scored the final two runs of the game in the bottom of the fifth as Smith and McCoy each hit an RBI single.
