Everything Clicks, Mohawks Win Again

It’s starting to turn into a theme, jump on the scoreboard early, get a stellar performance form that night’s starting pitcher, and turn the lead over to the best bullpen in the league. That is precisely what the Mohawks did once more as they galloped to an 8-0 win over Elmira on Thursday night at Shuttleworth Park.

Mark Leiter (NJIT) breezed through six innings and allowed just three hits while striking out nine on his way to his third consecutive quality start. The righty struck out at least one batter in each inning and retired the final six men he faced, the Mohawks have now won each of his last three starts dating back to July 4th.

Amsterdam jumped on the bats early as Zach Shank (Marist) and Jude Vidrine (Lamar) connected on one-out singles in the eighth. Luke Maile (Kentucky) then cracked the third straight single of the inning to provide the first run of the ballgame. After a Parker Morin (Utah) infield single, Josh Netheway (Albany) was hit by a pitch to drive in the second run before Matt Mack (Radford) made it 3-0 when he drove in a run on a fielder’s choice.

The Hawks extended the lead in the third when Netheway doubled and Mack plated him with a one-out single.

Shank knocked in his seventh run of the summer with a single in the sixth and Josh Nethaway blasted his second homerun in as many games, a three-run bomb in the seventh, to break it open and provide the home team with a 8-0 advantage.

Derrick Brewer (Radford) pitched a scoreless seventh, Will Kendall (Auburn) shut down the Pioneers in the eighth, and Bryce Eisenbart (Paris J.C) locked down the victory in ninth.

The Hawks connected on 13 hits and did not commit an error while Elmira scratched across just three hits and committed a single error.

Jordan Carter (St. Joseph's, Pa.) started and dropped to 3-2 while Mark Leiter (2-3) picked up his second straight win.

The victory for the Mohawks is their 13 in their last 15 games and they improve to a league-best 20-12 while the Pioneers (14-15) fall below .500.

Amsterdam will host Cooperstown Friday night at 7:00.
