The Plattsburgh State Cardinals were back in action the next day as they would take on the Oneonta State Red Dragons in doubleheader action. The Red Dragons would get first blood as they would get four runs in the third inning highlighted by a 2 rbi double by Serena. The Red Dragons would get a single run in the fourth and fifth to make it a 6-0 game. The Cardinals would get on the board in the fifth with a fielders choice by Kelsey Waite to make it a 6-1 game. Then in the sixth inning, the Red Dragons would add three more runs lead by Serena 2 rbi double for the 9-1 lead to invoking the mercy rule as the Cardinals lose game 1 and fall to 5-8 on the season. After a twenty-minute break, the teams would return for the second game of the doubleheader and it would once again start off badly for the Cardinals as they would give up three runs in the first inning led by Digiovanni rbi single. Although in the bottom of the inning the Cardinals would answer back with a pair of runs by Sam Gentile and Kelsey Waite for a 3-2 game. The Red Dragons would extend the lead back to a Cardinals error making it 4-2. The Red Dragons would make it a three-run game on a rbi single by Mangone in the fifth inning. The Cardinals would answer back in the fifth as Golino would score on a wild pitch. The Cardinals would make it a one-run game in the sixth inning on a rbi single by Golino at 5-4. Although in the top of the seventh the Red Dragons would put the final touches on the sweep for the day on a rbi double by Hussey and secure the 6-4 win. In the loss, the Cardinals fall to 5-9 on the season and will be back in action on April 5th as they travel to St. Lawerence and take on the Saints. Gallery
