Glens Falls Wins Home Opener 6-2 Over Albany

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. - The Glens Falls Dragons roared to a win during their home opener Friday night at East Field, defeating the Albany Dutchmen 6-2.

Pitcher Alex Phillips (Bellarmine University) started the game off for the Dragons.

The Dutchmen pioneered the night’s scoring with an RBI single by Chase Allen (Limestone College, SC.) early in the first inning, followed by an RBI triple from teammate Brandt Holland (Univ. of North Alabama). The Dragons fought back to tie the game 2-2 going into the second.

Dutchmen pitcher Greg Marino (Stony Brook Univ.) locked in a 1,2,3-out inning for Albany.

Late in the third, Dragons’ Ryan Beamish (Lee Univ.), tallied an RBI single after capitalizing on a Dutchmen error, allowing Dan Lowndes (Siena College) to cross the plate. Phoenix Hernandez (Southern NH Univ.) followed Beamish’s precedent and notched an RBI to drive Beamish himself to score, giving the Dragons the lead at 4-2.

The score remained untouched until late in the sixth, when Glens Falls Dragon Anthony Vaglica (LIU Post) launched a 2-run homerun out behind the left-field wall.

Dragons’ Tom Taplin (U Buffalo) took control of the pitchers mound for the seventh and eighth innings, followed by PJ Strahm (Bucknell Univ.) who threw in the ninth. Both pitchers left the Dutchmen scoreless, bringing the game to a close with a final score of 6-2 Dragons.

Phillips earned the win on the bump to go to 1-0. Marino (0-1) took the loss.

The Glens Falls Dragons (1-1) turn their sights towards Amsterdam, where they are set to take on the Mohawks Saturday night.

The Dragons will return to East Field on Tuesday, June 6th, to face a rematch versus the Albany Dutchmen (0-1).
