Today is the fourth day of the postseason.

Last Night’s Games:

Elmira 4 Utica 0

The Elmira Pioneers tied the West Division Championship Series at a game apiece with a 4-0 win over the Utica Blue Sox on the road. 

Sean Hjelle was the story of the game as he tossed a complete game shutout with six strikeouts and he allowed just two hits in a game that lasted less than two hours.

The Pioneers took a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning on a walk and an error. A wild pitch in the sixth and an error in the eighth extended the lead to 4-0.

Gus Varland pitched well, allowing just the three runs in seven innings of work, but he took the loss.

Amsterdam 8 Albany 4 

The Amsterdam Mohawks came from behind to take a 1-0 lead in the East Division Championship Series at Shuttleworth Park.

Amsterdam took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a wild pitch before Albany tied it in the second on a groundout. Then in the fourth, Albany scored three runs on a groundout, a JJ Shimko RBI single and a Jack Gethings RBI single. Amsterdam pulled within one in the home half thanks to an error and a sacrifice fly.

The Mohawks took the lead in the sixth after Chris Givin tied the game with an RBI single and a bases loaded walk made it 5-4. A dropped third strike wild pitch made it a 6-4 game in the bottom of the eighth and Tristen Carranza brought in two additional runs with a double later in the inning.

Paul Milto earned the win for Amsterdam while Jackson Bubala took the loss for Albany.
