Recap - Ninth-inning rally not enough for Pioneers against Dutchmen

Elmira, NY- The Pioneers set the bar high Friday night as more that 3,800 people helped push this season’s total attendance over the 50,000 plateau. The Pioneers have already surpassed last year’s attendance mark of more than 36,000 fans. Fans were treated to a fireworks display after the Albany Dutchmen were able to hold on for a 9-6 victory at Historic Dunn Field.

The Dutchmen would get on the board early as they plated four runs in the opening frame against Elmira starter Dylan Waugh (Arizona Christian). Waugh would gain back his composure in the second inning as he worked a clean inning and would set down nine consecutive Albany batters heading into the fifth inning.

With Albany leading 7-0 the Pioneers would breakthrough with two runs in the fifth inning off of starter Kasceim Graham (Albany). Travis Rosenwinkel (Corning C.C.) would give Elmira their first run as he roped a line drive into right field scoring Spencer Brann (UC Davis) from third base to make it 7-1. Ty Yesensky (Old Dominion) would score later in the inning on a ground out to make it 7-2.

Elmira would try to rally in the bottom of the ninth inning as the tying run would come to the plate for the Pioneers after Steven Patterson (San Joaquin Delta) drove in Stephen Clout (New Haven) from third to make it 9-6. With Yesensky at the plate a called third strike would seal the deal for Albany as the Pioneers stranded two runners on base in front of a packed Dunn Field crowd on hand.

Elmira hits the road on Saturday to take on the Cooperstown Hawkeyes at 5 pm and will return to Dunn Field on Sunday, July 15th as the Oneonta Outlaws come into town on Mascot Mania night at Dunn Field as the Pioneers will be celebrating Stitches birthday. Fans are invited  to come out and enjoy some cake and root on the Pioneers with the first pitched scheduled for 5:05 pm. Call 607-734-2690 for tickets or more information on the upcoming events at Dunn Field this season.
