Mohawks Clip Wizards On Fireworks Night

Andrew Green (East Tennessee State) made a diving catch in right field to save the game for Amsterdam (12-10) as the Mohawks sent the Wizards (8-11) to their seventh one-run loss 3-2. The win is the Mohawks’ fifth in a row.

The Wizards led 1-0 after five innings. Jake McGuiggan (Harvard) reached on an error leading off the inning and made it to third on Chris Gruarin’s (Canisius) double. One out later Alex Maldonado (Holy Cross) singled through a drawn in infield, scoring McGuiigan. Josh Alexander (East Tennessee State) cut down Gruarin at the plate.

Jack Fischer (Wake Forest W 1-0) was strong in his first start for Amsterdam, striking out five without a walk. He allowed only one run before being replaced in the seventh.

Amsterdam’s offense was anemic for most of the night, but in the seventh they took advantage of back to back walks issued by Wizard’s starter Scott Whitehead (Canisius L 0-2). With one out  and runners at second and third Whitehead induced a fly ball to Gruarin. The runners held, but Gruarin’s throw skipped to the backstop to tie the game. Demarcus Henderson (Mississippi State) singled to right for the go-ahead score.

The Tribe struck in the eighth with consecutive triples by Jude Vidrine (Lamar) and Parker Morin (Southern Idaho). Vidrine had two triples in the game.

Maldonado doubled to start the bottom of the eighth. Pat Talbut (St. Johns) singled him home to make it 3-2. Derrick Brewer (Radford) escaped further trouble in the eighth and returned to try and nail down an eight-out save in the ninth.

McGuiggan doubled to dead center with one out in the ninth. Brewer got a flyball to left to retire Gruarin. In a 2-2 count Erick Gaylord (Cambell) lined a ball to right but Green got leather under it on the dive to end the game.

The Wizards host the Mohawks again tomorrow night at 7:05.
