Last Night’s Games:
Elmira 4 Adirondack 1 (Game One): The Elmira Pioneers scored two runs in the bottom of the first inning to take the lead for good and beat the Adirondack Trail Blazers, 4-1, in game one of a doubleheader.
Taylor Hillson scored on a wild pitch and Josh Lovelady hit an RBI single to plate the two Pioneer runs in the first. Adirondack had previously scored a lone run in the top half of the inning on an E1. Keegan Maronpot added an RBI double in the bottom of the third and Justin Hayes hit an RBI single in the fourth to make it a 4-1 game, what wound up being the final score.
Elmira starter Kyano Cummings pitched a gem, allowing the one run (unearned) in a complete game while extending his PGCBL strikeout lead by fanning nine batters. Adirondack starter John O’Reilly also pitched a complete game as he gave up the four runs (two earned) in taking the loss.
Elmira 6 Adirondack 4 (Game Two): The Elmira Pioneers used a four-run sixth to beat the Adirondack Trail Blazers, 6-4, and sweep a doubleheader at Dunn Field.
In the bottom of the sixth, a single and an error plated a run, Christian Santisteban hit a two-RBI single and a sacrifice fly plated the fourth and final run. In the visitor half of the inning, Adirondack scored three runs on an error, a Matt Brown RBI single and a Kyle Walker RBI double.
Elmira scored the first run of the game in the bottom of the first on a bases loaded walk, but Adirondack got it back in the next half inning on an RBI groundout. Brian Barefoot hit an RBI single for Elmira in the bottom of the third to make it a 2-1 game.
Pioneers’ reliever Jake Greer pitched the sixth inning to get the win and Garrett Schilling allowed just a hit in the seventh to notch the save. Adirondack’s Tim Coppinger gave up the four Elmira runs to take the loss.
Saugerties 2 Glens Falls 0: Two runs in the bottom of the first proved to be enough as the Saugerties Stallions beat the Glens Falls Dragons, 2-0, in Saugerties.
An error allowed Pat Dorrian to score the first run of the game in the bottom of the first and a Chris Reynolds RBI double scored Clint Hardy to make it a 2-0 game, which was all the scoring in the game.
Saugerties starter Anthony Rocco pitched five scoreless innings to earn the win and Matt Wojciak struck out four batters in two scoreless innings of relief to notch the save. Glens Falls’ Tyler Ehlers gave up the two unearned runs in the first in a total of seven innings of work in taking the loss—despite six strikeouts.
