Amsterdam downs Glens Falls, 12-6

AMSTERDAM – The Mohawks and Golden Eagles played each other for the third time in five days, and the Mohawks came away with the win for the third time, 12-6. JaVon Shelby (Kentucky) could do no wrong up to bat going 3-for-3 with four runs, two RBI, two doubles, two steals, and one home run. Amsterdam outscored Glens Falls 25-6 in the three games they have played recently.

Kevin Guthrie (Brown) started on the mound for the ‘Hawks and lasted two and two-thirds of an inning. Guthrie ran into trouble in the third. A Shelby throwing error prolonged the inning. Then a J.Q. Folena single to right allowed two runs to score, however both were unearned.

Those two runs for the Golden Eagles proved meaningless as the Mohawks put up three in the second, four in the third, two in each the fourth and sixth, as well as one in the fifth. Along with Shelby’s hitting prowess, Jonathon Pryor (Wake Forest) went 2-4 with three RBI, including his league-leading eighth double. Shelby’s two doubles also moved him into the lead with Pryor. Brendan Tracy (Fairfield) went 3-3 with three runs score, an RBI, and a double.

After the two-run third inning, the Golden Eagles scored two run in the top of the seventh, then one run each in the eighth and ninth.

Joe Randall (Fairfield) picked up his second win of the season for the Mohawks. Chas Lacko (LIU Brooklyn) picked up his first loss in a spot start for Glens Falls. Lacko allowed seven runs on seven hits and five walks in two and two-thirds innings pitched.

Amsterdam travels to Little Falls to take on the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs in a battle for first place in the East Division of the PGCBL. First pitch time is at 7:05 from Veterans Memorial Field. Listen live to 1490 WCSS in Amsterdam or online at wcss1490.com.
