    Jessica Patterelli homered in both games Tuesday and earned the win in the circle in the second as Herkimer County Community College’s Generals closed the regular season with a pair of wins against Monroe Community College.
    Fulton-Montgomery Community College forfeited a doubleheader slated for Thursday, giving the Generals a 35-2 record entering postseason play. They will be the top seed for the Region III playoffs with a 31-1 record within the region.
    Patterelli went 3-for-4 with a home run in the first game and Toni Secreti pitched a four-hitter to earn her 12th win of the season. Samantha Smaldone had two doubles and Tina Karaqi drove in a run with a double. Monroe’s only run scored on a home run hit by Tabby McBride.
    Patterelli led off the second game with her seventh home run over the left field fence. Her opposite field shot started a four-run inning that was followed by three in the second and six in the third. Ashley Sterritt went 3-for-3 with two doubles and four runs batted in for the Generals; Delaney Buckley had two hits and drove in two runs; Karaqi had three hits and an RBI; and Smaldone had a pair of hits. Patterelli picked up a second RBI with a sacrifice fly and pitched a three-hitter for the win.
    Monroe (19-15, 19-5 Region III) had won 19 of its last 20 games entering Tuesday’s doubleheader. The Tribunes started the season 0-12.
    Herkimer will play a best-of-three series in the first round of the regional playoffs at home starting Saturday. The regional playoff schedule was to be announced Wednesday.
