Culpepper strikes out 11, Dawgs lead wire-to-wire in win over Rams

Filed by the Watertown Rams...

WATERTOWN- Mohawk Valley (8-8) defeated host Watertown (5-9) behind exemplary pitching from Gavin Culpepper (Southern Louisiana). The DiamondDawgs scored three runs in the top of the first which helped lead the way to a 10-5 victory.

Watertown scored its lone run off Culpepper in the bottom of the second inning. Culpepper’s final line is as followed: 7 IP, 1 run (Unearned), 11 strikeouts. Culpepper used an array of pitches to stymie the Rams and pick up the victory. Culpepper moves to 2-1 on the young season. For Watertown, starter Kevin Klaess (Cypress) hurled 4+ innings allowing 9 runs (all earned) in the loss.

Mohawk Valley started the scoring off early on a three-run home run by third baseman Landon Thibodeaux (LSU Eunice). Thibodeaux drove home Dalton Herrington (ULM) and Willie Shaw (William & Mary) who had both reached base via walk previously in the inning. The DiamondDawgs added a lone run in the third and three in the fourth off Klaess. Trey Hunt’s (Point Loma Nazarene) home run in the top of the fifth knocked Klaess out of the game.

The relief of Josh Amann (JCC), Jake Welch (JCC), and Chase Heslep (Lower Columbia) combined to allow only one run in their 5 innings of work.

No Rams player posted multiple hits. Joe Moroney (Kansas) slugged a double and scored a run in the eighth inning. J.J. Wagner (Pacific) drove in three runs on the game including a two-RBI single in the home half of the eighth.

Jordan Serena (Columbia) finished 2-for-4 with two walks for Mohawk Valley. The number two spot of the DiamondDawgs order sparked the attack. Craig Lepre (Albany) and Brett Zaziski (Vassar) combined to go 3-for-5 with a walk.

Neither Watertown nor Mohawk Valley play tomorrow in part of a league-wide off day. Watertown travels to Amsterdam on Tuesday with a first pitch scheduled for 7:05. Mohawk Valley will play host to Adirondack on Tuesday with a 7:05 scheduled first pitch.
