Saugerties Stymies First Place Watertown

Saugerties, NY - On Friday, the Saugerties Stallions defeated the Watertown Rapids 11-3 at Cantine Field in Saugerties, NY.

What seemed to be a pitching duel on paper in the first inning was quickly changed. The Rapids opened up the scoreboard after a couple of hits by Julian Kurych (Wilmington) and Kenny Bergmann (University of Connecticut) in the first inning gave them an early 2-0 lead. Stallion Easton Bertrand (University of Minnesota) cut the lead in half in the first inning, with a single to center field.

Watertown’s pitching fell apart in the second inning. After walking the bases loaded, a James Gargano (Butler) sacrifice fly brought home Andrew Taft (LeMoyne) to tie the ballgame. Jacob Hitz (University of Minnesota) and Herman Alvarado (Nyack) would cpome into score on walks later in the inning to give the Stallions a 4-2 lead.

The Stallions bats came alive in the third inning. After a pair of RBI singles by Cameron Comer (University of Virginia) and Tyler Kelder (St. Bonaventure), the Stallions took a 6-2 lead over the Rapids. A pair of wild pitches allowed the Stallions to widen the lead to 8-2. In the fourth, an Alvarado ground-out brought home Taft to push the lead to 9-2.

The Rapids did not score again until the sixth when Andrew Bacon (Northern Kentucky) singled, scoring Bergmann to make it a 9-3 ballgame.

The Stallions tacked on a couple more runs in the eighth after a single by Justin Tuey (LeMoyne) followed by another single from Comer, making it 11-3.

Noah Stone (Arkansas State) earned the win for the Stallions, while Nick Cowen (Wayne State) took the loss. The Rapids play next at home on June 23rd against the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs and the Stallions play next on June 23rd at the Oneonta Outlaws.
