Dutchmen Thump Flames in Home Finale

ONONDAGA, N.Y. - The Albany Dutchmen (31-16) scored 13 runs in the final four innings of Sunday’s game against the Onondaga Flames (23-25) to secure a 14-2 victory at the Onondaga Community College Baseball Complex.

The Dutchmen came into the sixth inning trailing 2-1 before getting the late-game scoring started with an RBI triple by Justin Childers (Ohio Dominican University). Childers then scored on an error by catcher Camillo Spinoso (Le Moyne College) to give Albany a 3-2 lead.

Two batters later Chris Villa (Seton Hall University) reached on an error by shortstop Carsen Negrete (Gonzaga University).  The error allowed Jon Skidmore (Dallas Baptist University) and Zach Durfee (Siena College) to score and give the Dutchmen a 5-2 lead.

In the seventh inning Albany loaded the bases with one out as Childers came to the plate. Childers hit a long fly ball to center field, which went over the head of Onondaga center fielder Matt Carey (Ithaca College).  Childers hustled all the way around the bases for an inside the park grand slam to give the Dutchmen a 9-2 lead.

Childers ended the game 3-4 with five RBI, three runs scored, and came a double shy of hitting for the cycle.

The Dutchmen never looked back as they tacked on five runs in the final two innings to seal a 14-2 blowout victory.

Onondaga’s struggled in the field as they committed five errors and allowed five unearned runs to score in the game.

On offense Carey and Sam Little (Ithaca College) drove in the Flames' two runs.

Jason Hellwig (SUNY Brockport) fell to 0-2 on the season as he was given the loss.  Hellwig gave up five runs (one earned) over six innings of work.

Matt Pierce (Siena College) improved his impressive season record to 8-1 as picked up the victory.  Pierce gave up two runs over six innings while striking out six.

Onondaga will head to Jamestown (32-15) to play its season finale on Monday.  The teams will then play again in Jamestown on Tuesday in the first round of the PGCBL playoffs.  Albany will travel to Mohawk Valley (28-16) on Monday, as those two teams fight for the second seed in the East Division.
