An error, a Nick Russo RBI single and a sacrifice fly accounted for the three runs in the fourth. Adirondack scored the first run of the game in the third on a Kyle Cunningham RBI single and made it a 3-2 game in the fifth on another Cunningham RBI single, but it wasn’t enough as Victor held on.
Eoin McAvinchey picked up the win as Brian Reed notched the save. Aaron Hedgecock took the loss for Adirondack.
Utica 3 Albany 2
A 2-2 tie was broken in the seventh inning as the Utica Blue Sox beat the Albany Dutchmen, 3-2, on the road.
With the bases loaded, Hunter Losekamp drew a walk to break the 2-2 tie and plate the eventual winning run. The Blue Sox scored the first run of the game in the second on an error but Albany tied it up at one in the third on a Justin Childers RBI single. Each team scored a lone run in the fifth to make it 2-2.
Dylan Gerdts tossed six solid innings to earn the win for the Blue Sox as George Navadel notched the save. Drew Robertson took the loss for Albany.

The Outlaws scored three runs in the first inning, including two on a Taylor Maxey double. Jamestown got one back in the second on a Nick Garland RBI single and tied the game in the third.
