A solid offensive effort from the Glens Falls Golden Eagles was in vein as the team fell to Elmira by a score of 12-9. Glens Falls scored in each of the last nine innings, but they fell short as it seemed like every time they would score a run, they gave it right back up in the next inning. The game began on a low note for Glens Falls as the Pioneers struck early, plating three runs over the first two innings, while chasing Golden Eagles starter Nick Pivetta (New Mexico Junior College) in the process. Glens Falls got one back on a triple from Ross Kivett (Kansas State), which plated Brandon Matthews (Yavapai) to cut the score to 3-1.
Both teams pushed across a run in the fourth inning, before a two run homerun from Elmira’s Ty Yesensky (Old Dominion) pushed the score to 6-2 in favor of the Pioneers. Once again, Glens Falls clawed back with a run in the fifth as a Chase Griffin (Georgia Southern) double plated Kivett to cut the score to 6-3.
Elmira plated another two runs in the sixth inning, but once again Glens Falls countered with two runs in the bottom half as Kevin Meyers (Northeastern Oklahoma A&M) and Matthews scored to cut the deficit to 8-5. The back and forth scoring continued for the rest of the contest as Elmira had a three run seventh, as well as one in the eighth. The Golden Eagles matched with one run in each of the final innings, but it was not enough to come back as they fell by the final score of 12-9.
Pivetta took the loss for the Golden Eagles, as the team fell to 6-6 on the season. Glens Falls enjoys an off day tomorrow, before they get back on the grind on Friday, when they travel to Amsterdam to take on the Mohawks. Game time is set for 7 PM. The team returns home this Saturday for Hudson River Community Credit Union Community Heroes Night. Both local and national heroes will be in attendance at East Field to help support the Golden Eagles.
