    The homer-happy Herkimer County Community College Generals hit 11 balls out Saturday and swept a doubleheader at Tompkins Cortland Community College to extend their winning streak to 20 games.
    The Generals (22-1, 18-0 Region III) homered six times in a 20-1 win in Game 1. Five more ball sailed over the fence in Game 2, a 13-2 Herkimer win.
    Toni Secreti pitched a four-hitter in  the first game and shut Tompkins Cortland (6-17) out until she allowed a single run in the fifth inning. Deleney Buckley got the Generals going with a two-run home run in the first inning, the first of two she would hit  during the game. The lead was 4-0 before Herkimer sent 18 batters to the plate during a 13-run outburst in the fourth inning. Alyssa Balfe, Samantha Smaldone, Stephanie Siriano, Buckley and pinch-hitter Alexa DiSpirito all homered in the fourth. Tina Karaqi contributed three hits and three runs batted in and Ashley Sterritt had three hits with two runs batted in; each hit a pair of doubles.
    Siriano’s two-run double opened the scoring in the second game then crossed the plate herself on a hit by Herkimer native Kathryn Dolly. West Canada Valley High School graduate DiSpirito gave up a two-run home run in the bottom of the first but shut Tompkins Cortland out the rest of the way to earn her seventh win of the spring. Dolly, Fallon Spriggs and Jessica Patterelli each hit a home run and Smaldone had two more during the game. Siriano had three hits and Karaqi and Caitlin Sanders had two each.
