Streaking Dutchmen Continue Winning Ways Against Elmira

The Albany Dutchmen (13-14) continued their winning streak with a 5-2 victory at Bob Bellizzi Field on Wednesday night against the Elmira Pioneers (14-14). Albany has now won five straight as they continue to close the gap for second place in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League East Division.

The Dutchmen drew first blood in the PCGBL interleague contest and never looked back. After completing a double steal in the first inning, both Dain McNabb (Middle Tennessee State) and Nikko Echevarria (Nova Southeastern) were driven home to give Albany a 2-0 lead. Steve Anderson (Georgetown) was responsible for the second Dutchmen run hitting an RBI single.

The offensive surge for the Dutchmen continued as Ryan Van Amburgh (Pepperdine) hit an RBI double in the third and Echevarria advanced home on a Pioneer throwing error in the fourth to put the Dutchmen ahead comfortably at 4-0.

Burlington County Community College's Damon Valloreo (2-0) went 5.1 innings in his first start of the season for the Dutchmen. The lefty fanned three on four hits and two earned runs on his way to a victory.

Valloreo looked strong all night, but ran into trouble in the sixth. A two-run RBI single by Pioneer DH Corey Keller (Florida Atlantic) ended Valloreo’s otherwise excellent outing. Reliever C.J. Sohl (Siena) relieved Valloreo to stop the bleeding. He allowed no addition runs to cross the plate while leaving the bases loaded.

The Dutchmen added a run in the bottom of the sixth to close things out at 5-2. Sohl dominated in relief for Albany pitching 3.2 innings of one-hit shutout ball. He recorded the save for the Dutchmen.

Echeverria had a break out night for Albany. Starting the night at second base before moving to left field, Echevarria went 2-2 with two runs and a season-high three stolen bases. Pioneer starter Aaron Zaleznik (1-1) (Massachusetts) was tagged with the loss for Elmira.

Albany will take on the Cooperstown Hawkeyes on road starting at 7 p.m. tomorrow night. They will be back at Bob Bellizzi Field on Friday evening to take on the Watertown Wizards. For all Dutchmen information visit www.dutchmenbaseball.com or follow us @DutchmenPGCBL.
