ALBANY -- Julian Gallup tripled, singled, drove in three runs and stole three bases, and the Amsterdam High School baseball team got a combined one-hitter from four pitchers as the Rams picked up their seventh straight win and ninth in the last 10 games with a 13-2 rout of Bishop Maginn in Big 10 action Wednesday.
Andrew Rouse singled, walked twice, scored three runs and stole for bases for the Rams (9-4, 7-4 Big 10), who stole 11 bases as a team. Eric Robertshaw added two singles and Ben Rhodes ripped a triple for Amsterdam.
Kolbie Glionna got the start and retired 10 of the 11 batters he faced in combining with Brady McGillin, Kyle Agresta and Brian Cranker to strike out seven in a one-hitter where the Griffins' lone base hit came on miscommunication on a pop-up in the infield.
Amsterdam will seek to extend its winning streak today at 4:30 p.m. when the Rams visit Catholic Central.
Western Athletic Conference
Fort Plain 4, Canajoharie 1
James May Jr. singled twice and drove in two runs, and Jesse Heroth scattered six hits and struck out eight to pick up the complete game win as the Hilltoppers remained perfect on the season by completing a season sweep of Canajoharie.
The Cougars struck in the first when singles by Dillan Veeder and Jace Fox set up Buck Anderson's RBI single, but Heroth induced an inning-ending double play off the bat of Zack Ouderkirk and Canajoharie was kept off the board the rest of the way.
Fort Plain (11-0, 10-0 WAC) tied the game on May's RBI single in the second, then May put the Hilltoppers ahead with a sacrifice fly in the fourth. A couple insurance runs in the fifth on an RBI triple by Kiernan Briggs and an RBI single from Heroth gave the Fort Plain junior lefthander all the breathing room he'd need to pick up his sixth win of the season.
Anderson led the way for Canajoharie with three of the team's six hits.

OESJ 11, Galway 4

Sam Uline had a pair of hits and Max Conti doubled for for Galway (5-4, 5-4).
Broadalbin-Perth 3, Johnstown 1
