Pilots Cruised Past DiamondDawgs 7-2 Behind Nobles and Giesel

Newark- A picture perfect evening for baseball and some fireworks at Colburn Park as the Pilots welcomed the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs. The rubber match on the summer as the teams split the first two contests with one another. BJ Nobles (Western Carolina) was making his second start of the season going up against Bryan Greig (Mercy)
 
Both pitchers worked fast and efficiently early until the Pilots started a rally with two outs in the third inning. Tim Lewis (Maryland) gave Newark the lead when he crushed a triple off the right field wall that bounced away from Jayson Sullivan (Sacred Heart) and when the rally throw from Colin Hawk (Cincinnati) was way over the head of the DiamondDawgs third baseman, allowing Lewis to walk home on the error.
 
Pilots led 2-0 after three innings but Mohawk Valley got one back when All Star and Home Run Derby contestant, Zach Collett (New Haven) hit his league leading sixth home run of the season over the left center wall.
 
Tanner Giesel (Southeastern CC) is also a PGCBL All Star and was not to be out done by Collett when he took a Greig offering and deposited it over the left field fence for his second home run of the season and gave the Pilots a 4-1 lead after six innings.
 
Tommy Wagner added a two out RBI single in the seventh, scoring Dorian Hairston (Kentucky) and Lewis to increase Newark’s lead to 6-1.
 
Nobles went the distance giving up only eight hits, two runs, walked only one and striking out eigth DiamondDawgs as he picked up his second win of the summer.
 
Newark improves to 16-13, while Mohawk Valley drops to 17-9. Pilots will stay at home to take on the Utica Brewers tomorrow night, 7:05pm first pitch.
