Blazers Brought Down by Blue Sox

BOONVILLE, N.Y. -  On a cold and gray afternoon Sunday, the Adirondack Trail Blazers battled the Utica Blue Sox in at home and dropped the second game of the season series 7-5.

Utica was the first to score after three defensive miscues from the Blazers in the second inning gave the Sox an early 3-0 lead. Rob Andreoli did pick up a hit in the second, scored a run and finished the game 2 for 4.

Adirondack started to mark a comeback in the bottom of the fifth inning trailing 3-1, Dan Abate slapped a two-run home run over the left field fence to tie the ball game at 3-3. The previous batter, Zach Zschering, reached base on an error. Lou Matarazzo scored Adirondack's first run in the fourth off an RBI triple from John Michael Boswell.

Over the next two innings, the Blue Sox regained the lead. Kyle Norman walked to start the top of the sixth and advanced to third base off a double from Zane Harris. Andreoli grounded out, but drove in Norman from third to give their club a 4-3 lead. From there, Utica never looked back.

In the sixth, seventh and eighth innings, the Blazers struggled to get runners on base and put runs on the board. The ninth sparked a small comeback with Matarazzo hitting a two-run home run over the center field wall scoring Tyler Bruno. Alas, after two quick outs, the Blazers fell just short in their rematch against Utica from Friday night.

Nathan Popiel was the starting pitcher for the Blue Sox, but it was Albert Ordonez who picked up the win, his first of the season. Similarly, Bryce Van Horn was the Blazers' workhorse for the day, but it was Jake VanBeber who recorded the loss. John Thompson picked up his first save for the 2017 season.

Utica and Adirondack and set to square off again on Tuesday, this time with the Blue Sox playing host. The Blazers have Monday off, but Utica will hit the road once again to Albany and take on the Dutchmen.
