A bases loaded hit by pitch extended the lead to 3-0 but Victor got the run back in the home half of the inning on a hit by pitch. Adirondack tacked on three insurance runs in the ninth to seal the win.
Dylan Borawski tossed six shutout innings to get the win for Adirondack as Jesse Sligner notched the save. Eoin McAvinchey took the loss.
Albany 2 Saugerties 0
Three pitchers combined on a one-hit shutout as the Albany Dutchmen blanked the Saugerties Stallions, 2-0, at Cantine Field.
Evan Giles struck out four over six scoreless innings to get the win. Troy Montemayor notched the save as he followed two innings of hitless relief by Jeff Rivera.
Albany scored lone runs in the second and eighth innings. John Doherty took the loss for Saugerties.
Mohawk Valley 7 Amsterdam 4
The Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs improved to 3-1 against the Amsterdam Mohawks this season with a 7-4 win over the Mohawks at Shuttleworth Park.
The DiamondDawgs struck first in the second inning on an error and extended the lead to 3-0 in the third on an Andrew Turner two-run home run. Two errors scored two more runs in the fourth to make it a 5-0 game. Amsterdam scored its first run in the sixth on a Nick Patten RBI double.
After Sean Mazzio hit an RBI double in the seventh for Mohawk Valley, Chris LaVorgna hit an RBI triple and Tyler Frank hit an RBI single for Amsterdam. Dan Maynard drove in another run for the Mohawks in the eighth. Turner picked up another RBI for Mohawk Valley in the ninth with a single.
Mike Appel struck out five and allowed one run in five innings to earn the win as Zachary Vennaro notched the save. Paul Milto took the loss for Amsterdam.
Oneonta 11 Elmira 7
Eight runs combined in the third and fourth innings propelled the Oneonta Outlaws to an 11-7 win over the Elmira Pioneers at Dunn Field, moving the Outlaws back into first place in the East Division.
Down 2-1 in the third, the Outlaws erupted for five runs in the third and three runs in the fourth. Elmira made it a two-run game in the fifth with a five-run inning of its own, but that would conclude the scoring for the home team as Oneonta tacked on two runs to seal the win.
Cal Lawrence got the win and Connor Burns took the loss.
