Bats Loook Strong But Dutchmen Drop Game In Extras

It took extra innings, but the Albany Dutchmen (6-12) dropped a 13-10 decision on the road to Elmira (13-8) Tuesday night. Albany currently sits in third place in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League East Division. In their inaugural PGCBL year, the Dutchmen are looking to catch the second place Amsterdam Mohawks to clinch a playoff berth.

The Albany offense started hot, catapulting to a 5-0 lead by the 3rd inning. Brandon Trinkwon (UC Santa Barbara) paced the early rally with a 3-4 effort, while Paul Bello (Georgetown University) went 2-5 and Dain McNabb (Middle Tennessee State) drove in two runs in the early going. Trinkwon has had a spectacular start for the Dutchmen batting .377, good for fourth best in the PGCBL.

The Dutchmen offense kept adding runs, five more throughout the rest of the game, four crossing the plate in the seventh inning. Three singles by Trinkwon, Bello and Albany native Steve Anderson (Georgetown University) highlighted the seventh along with an Elmira wild pitch and two errors.

Though the Dutchmen bats were alive throughout the game, the west-leading Elmira Pioneers began mounting strikes of their own. Led by David Bishop’s (Mississppi State) league-leading seventh home run, the Pioneers surged to tie the game at 10 before extra innings. Down 10-7, the Pioneers scored three runs in the bottom of the 8th, tying the game before Dutchmen reliever Preston Hill (Chandler Gilbert CC) stranded the bases loaded. The Dutchmen were able to get runners on every base in the top half of the ninth, but were unable to plate a run, sending the game to extras.

It only took one extra frame as the Albany bullpen wasn’t able to hold the Pioneers at bay. Sal Pezzino (High Point) blasted a walk-off homerun to secure the win for the Pioneers and hold a one game lead in the West.

 The teams will play again tomorrow in Elmira at 7 pm. For all Dutchmen information visit www.dutchmenbaseball.com or follow us @DutchmenPGCBL.
