Dutchmen Struggle After Bats Come Alive For Wizards

The Albany Dutchmen (4-7) got off to a quick start against the Watertown Wizards (4-8) but saw their early lead erased after 10 unanswered runs by the Wizards on their way to a 11-4 victory on Tuesday night at Bob Bellizzi Field. 

After a triple to start the game, Brandon Trinkwon (UC Santa Barbara) once again got the Dutchmen off to a quick start, as he did on Sunday. The Albany second basemen hit a leadoff double and stole third before coming home off a sac fly by Andrew Deeds (Morehead State).

The 1-0 Dutchmen lead was answered loudly however by the Wizards who strung together a four-run second and third inning off Albany starter Cameron Brewer (North Central Texas).  A two-run homer by Erick Gaylord (Campbell) highlighted the second while an RBI double by local Siena catcher Larry Balkwill helped extend the Wizard lead to 8-1 after three. 

Trinkwon continued to be a high point for the Dutchmen. The speedy leadoff hitter ripped his second double of the evening during the fifth inning to bring home Matt Wehrli (Yavapai). Trinkwon had another strong night with three hits and three stolen bases. He now has five hits in his last two games.

Balkwill, who turned 20 today, hit a homer to left field in the seventh inning capping off the Wizards 11 runs on the evening.  Rob Curran (Rhode Island) pitched a gem for the Wizards throwing a complete game allowing three earned runs on seven strikeouts. Matt Wehrli led all Dutchmen hitters going 4-4 and driving in the third Dutchmen run.

With the exception of the third-fifth inning, Albany outscored the Wizards 3-2. Austin Chase (UAlbany) continued his strong campaign in relief after three more innings of one hit ball on Tuesday. Chase now has pitched 10.2 innings allowing three hits and one earned run.

The two teams will square off once again tomorrow for a doubleheader in Watertown. The first game kicks off at 5 p.m. For all Dutchmen information visit www.dutchmenbaseball.com.
