This section will normally include the leaders of each statistical category but given there’s only been three days of games, the league leaders will be a part of the Rundown starting tomorrow.
Last Night’s Games:
Saugerties 2 Adirondack 1
After giving up a game-tying run in the top of the ninth, the Saugerties Stallions moved to 3-0 on the season with a walk-off win.
In the top of the ninth, Mark Venice singled home Matt Hosman with two outs to tie the game at one. But in the home half of the inning, Adam Chase hit a walk-off double, scoring Alex Thrower and keeping Saugerties’ undefeated season alive.
Mike Davis picked up the win for the Stallions after blowing the save in the top of the ninth while Donald Goodson took the loss for Adirondack.
Albany 3 Mohawk Valley 2
The Albany Dutchmen scored all three of their runs in the later innings to come back and beat the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs, 3-2, in Little Falls.
Down 1-0 in the seventh, Micah McHugh doubled home Justin Childers to tie the game. Then in the eighth, Childers hit a two-run double to give the Dutchmen a 3-1 lead. The DiamondDawgs didn’t go without a fight, though, making it a one-run game in the bottom of the ninth before a flyout ended the game.
Michael Maul earned the win for the Dutchmen with a scoreless inning of relief while Shane Reardon took the loss for Mohawk Valley.
Amsterdam 10 Glens Falls 0
The Amsterdam Mohawks picked up their first win of the season Saturday with a commanding 10-0 victory over Glens Falls.
The Mohawks jumped on the board in the first on a Nick Patten RBI single and added three more in the third on a sacrifice fly and two RBI singles. After adding two more runs in the fifth, Joe Genord hit an RBI single in the sixth to extend the lead to 7-0. A sole run in the seventh and two runs in the eighth finished the scoring.
Paul Milto allowed two hits over five scoreless innings to pick up the win while Bryan Warzek gave up six runs (one earned) in taking the loss for Glens Falls.
Elmira 16 Jamestown 6
In front of more than 5,000 fans, the Elmira Pioneers scored the most runs in a game this season in a 16-6 triumph over Jamestown at Dunn Field.
The scoring started in the bottom of the first when the Pioneers put up a five spot. Rob Perteet hit an RBI double, an error and a bases loaded walk each plated a run and Joe Preziuso hit a two-run single. Grey Finwood made it a 6-0 game in the third with an RBI single, Troy Dixon hit an RBI single and a sacrifice fly brought the lead to 8-0 by the time the fifth inning was over.
After Jamestown scored its first run in the sixth, Elmira scored three more in the home half. Like they did in their first at bat, the Pioneers scored five runs in their last at bat of the game as both teams scored five runs in the eighth inning.
Taylor Ahearn allowed one run in six innings of work in picking up the win for Elmira. Steve Simmons gave up five runs (one earned) in the first inning and took the loss for Jamestown.
Geneva 6 Newark 4
The Geneva Red Wings scored two runs in three separate innings to go on and beat the Newark Pilots, 6-4, in Geneva.
The scoring started in the bottom of the second when the Red Wings plated two on an error and a groundout. A sacrifice fly from Newark in the fourth made it a one-run game but Geneva responded in the home half with an RBI double from Alex Gionis and an RBI single from Jacob Lightle.
Julian Gallup hit an RBI double for the Pilots in the sixth and an RBI groundout in the top of the seventh again made it a one-run game but Geneva plated two in the seventh to add a few insurance runs.
Alex Jordan gave up three runs over six innings of work for Geneva in earning the win as Joe Kwasniewski notched the three-inning save. Austin Cave took the loss for Newark.
Utica 5 Oneonta 0
The Utica Blue Sox used a stellar start from Nolan Freeman to shutout the Oneonta Outlaws and take over sole possession of first place in the West Division.
Freeman allowed only three hits while striking out eight batters during his complete game shutout. He walked just one batter and commanded the zone — of his 93 pitches, 64 were for strikes.
He was backed by a potent offense Saturday night as Taylor Olmstead drove in two runs and three Blue Sox had multiple hits. For Oneonta, Sean Getman had two hits.
Josh Covey allowed three runs over five innings in taking the loss for Oneonta.
