Last Night’s Games:
Jamestown 6 Adirondack 0
The Jamestown Jammers scored two runs in three separate innings and used a strong start from Nick Wegmann to lead them to a 6-0 win over the Adirondack Trail Blazers at home.
Wegmann allowed just three hits and struck out nine batters in 7.2 innings of scoreless work, ultimately earning the win.
The game was scoreless until the fifth inning when Hunter Jones hit an RBI single and a sacrifice fly made it a 2-0 game. Christ Conley hit an RBI triple and another sacrifice fly extended the lead to 4-0 in the seventh before Alex O’Donnell hit an RBI triple and a groundout plated two more in the eighth to account for the rest of the game’s scoring.
Albany 3 Mohawk Valley 2
Behind a strong start from Dylan D’Anna and lone runs in three separate innings, the Albany Dutchmen topped the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs, 3-2, on the road.
The Dutchmen scored lone runs in the fourth and fifth on sacrifices before Justin Childers hit an RBI double in the sixth to make it a 3-0 game. Mohawk Valley rallied, scoring a lone run in the eighth on an Andrew Turner sacrifice fly and one in the ninth on a Michael Ketchmark home run, but it wasn’t enough as Albany held on.
D’Anna tossed six scoreless innings, giving up just four hits in the process, to earn the win for the Dutchmen as Joe Pokrentowski notched the save. David Palmer took the loss for Mohawk Valley.
Saugerties at Amsterdam
The game was postponed and will be made up as part of a July 15 doubleheader in Amsterdam. First pitch for game one is scheduled for 5 p.m.
Elmira 3 Victor 2
The Elmira Pioneers walked off against the Victor RailRiders, 3-2, on Friday at Dunn Field in front of an astounding 4,189 fans.
Tied at two in the ninth, Brian Kelly delivered a pinch-hit walk-off single to give the Pioneers the win.
Both Victor and Elmira scored lone runs in the third inning on a Nathan Koslowski RBI double and a Rob Perteet RBI double, respectively. A Ryan Boldwin RBI single in the fourth gave Victor the lead again but a wild pitch in the bottom of the fifth tied the game at two.
Parker Caracci struck out two in a scoreless ninth to earn the win for Elmira while Colin Johnston took the loss for Victor.
Newark 7 Geneva 5
The Newark Pilots scored two runs in extra innings to go on and defeat the Geneva Red Wings, 7-5, on the road.
Tied at five in the 10th, a run scored on an error and Darian Herncane hit an RBI single to give the Pilots the 7-5 lead.
Geneva took a 3-0 lead in the first inning on a Luke Johnson RBI single and a Max Goione two-run double. But Newark responded with a three-run inning of its own, scoring runs on a passed ball, an error and a Chase Cockrell RBI single. A sacrifice fly in the home half allowed Geneva to re-take the lead. Newark tied the game in the next half inning and each team scored a lone run in the ninth to send it to extras.
Loukas Bechakas picked up the win and Brian Dolan notched his league-leading sixth save. Patrick Conner took the loss for Geneva.
Utica 7 Glens Falls 3
A four-run fifth inning led the Utica Blue Sox to a 7-3 win over Glens Falls at Donovan Stadium, meaning they’re now just one win shy of 20 on the season.
After taking a 1-0 lead in the first, Ryan Hooper hit an RBI double for the Dragons in the third to tie the game. A passed ball in the fourth gave the Blue Sox the lead again before the big fifth inning — five runs on a Franklin Jennings RBI single, two on a Kyle Winkler single and another on a passed ball. Glens Falls responded with a lone run in the sixth on an Alex Chandler RBI single but Utica got it back in the seventh.
Brian Kavanagh allowed the three Glens Falls runs while striking out five in eight solid innings to earn the win. Joe Jones took the loss for Glens Falls.
