Mohawks Walk Off in 13th on Rivera Home Run

AMSTERDAM, N.Y. - Eric Rivera (Florida Atlantic) hit a walk off home run in the bottom of the 13th inning to propel the Amsterdam Mohawks to an 8-7 extra innings win over the Utica Blue Sox at Shuttleworth Park on Tuesday night.  The win gave the Mohawks their 10th straight.

TJ Collett (Kentucky) went 3-7 with 2 R and an RBI, and Liam Wilson stayed hot, going 2-5 with 1 R and 1 RBI.  Cole Pursell (Williamette) went 3-6 with 1 HR, 2 RBI and 2 R to lead Utica.

The Blue Sox opened up the scoring in the 1st on a long ball by Pursell, and would add another run in the top of the 3rd on a Pursell RBI single to take a 2-0 lead.

In the top of the 5th, Utica would extend their lead to 4-0 on an RBI single by Zane Harris (Wright St.), and an RBI fielder’s choice by Nathan Thyssen (Concordia (Wis.)).  However, Amsterdam would get 3 of those runs back in the bottom of the 5th when Jake Mueller (Wake Forest) scored on wild pitch, Will Holland (Auburn) singled home a run, and Liam Wilson (Canisius) scored on a wild pitch to make the score 4-3.

The Mohawks would then take the lead in the bottom of the 6th on a Mueller RBI groundout, and RBI singles by Collett and Wilson, making the score 6-4 Mohawks.

The score would stay that way until the top of the 7th when Nathan Thyssen deposited a 3-run home run over the left field fence to help the Blue Sox regain the lead, 7-6.

The Mohawks would not go down quietly though, because in the bottom of the 9th a Dylan Reynolds RBI single would tie it up at 7.
Extra innings would be pretty quiet until the bottom of the 13th, when with 2 outs, Eric Rivera put a Connor Hurley fastball far into the night over the left field wall to give the Mohawks the win.

The win goes to Brandon Reitz (Florida State), who threw 6 innings of hitless relief, striking out 12.  The loss goes to Connor Hurley (Concordia-St. Paul).

The Mohawks will be off Wednesday before returning to Shuttleworth Park to host the Oneonta Outlaws on Thursday, with that game scheduled for a 6:35 first pitch.  The Blue Sox will return home on Wednesday to Donovan Stadium to take on the Elmira Pioneers, with it slated for a 6:30 first pitch.
