(WBNG Binghamton) The Seton boys baseball team completed a dream season Saturday, winning their first Class C high school state championship. And the pitching staff was a big reason why.

The Saints beat Geneseo 9-0 to complete their title run.

In 3 games in the state playoffs, pitchers Patrick Gosney and Michael Korchak didn't allow a run.

Saints coach Jim Miller says Korchak didn't allow an earned run during the season and Gosney had an ERA of 1.20.

Miller says the performance in the state tournament was no different than he'd seen all season.

"Definitely means a lot. I mean no runs...that's something hard to do. I'm just pitching, hoping the defense has my back and they did. They had a great game today and had a great tournament," says Gosney.

"Those two guys had a great year. You've got a little over 70 innings and you've got almost no runs scores, earned...that's the way they've pitched all year," Miller says.

Seton is the second straight team from Section 4 to win the state baseball title in Class C.

Lansing, who Seton beat in the sectional finals, won the title last season.
