The Albany Dutchmen rallied and came back to beat the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs, 5-1, at home.

In the seventh, an error, a JJ Shimko RBI double and a Justin Childers RBI double extended the lead to 5-1.

After blowing a lead in the middle innings, the Amsterdam Mohawks rallied to come back and beat the Saugerties Stallions, 14-10, on the road.
The Mohawks took a 4-0 lead in the second inning on an Andruw Gazzola RBI double, two sacrifices and a Joe Genord RBI double. In the third, Amsterdam extended the lead on an Andrew Rouse RBI single and a Chris Givin RBI single. Saugerties cut the lead in half with a three-run third but Amsterdam quickly responded with two more runs to make it 8-3.
Then in the fifth, Saugerties plated six runs, including three on walks, to take the lead. The Stallions added a lone run in the sixth before Amsterdam staged its comeback. A sacrifice fly in the seventh made it a 10-9 game before a four-run eighth, including a two-run Tristen Carranza home run, gave the Mohawks the lead for good. Carranza hit an RBI single in the ninth for good measure.
Ben Collincini picked up the win for Amsterdam as Andrew Workman took the loss.
