Russo sparked a seven-run fourth with a three-run shot to right center and junior Tom Meaney (Holbrook, N.Y./Sachem), Delawter and junior Scott Peddicord (Columbia, Md./Long Reach) each added more runs for the Retrievers as Meaney and Delawter both tallied RBI singles and Peddicord registered a two-RBI single as the Retrievers built a 9-0 lead.
The Bearcats chipped away at the lead, adding two runs each in the sixth and seventh, but came up short as the Retrievers cruised to the 9-4 victory.
The teams will play the four-game series finale on Sunday at NYSEG Stadium at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.
