The Albany Dutchmen scored two runs in three different innings to come back and beat the Saugerties Stallions, 6-3, on the road.
A Kyle Skeels two-run double in the first gave Albany an early 2-0 lead but Saugerties scored lone runs in the first, second and third innings to take a 3-2 lead. In the sixth, Jon Skidmore hit an RBI single to tie the game at three and JJ Shimko hit an RBI double to give the Dutchmen the lead. A Justin Childers two-run single in the eighth added some insurance for the visitors.
Jared Gold tossed five innings of one-run relief to earn the win for Albany as Troy Montemayor notched the save. Will Wortmann took the loss for Saugerties.
Amsterdam 1 Oneonta 0 (Game One)
The Amsterdam Mohawks clinched the East Division with a 1-0 win over the Oneonta Outlaws in game one of a doubleheader.
The Mohawks scored the game’s lone run in the second inning on a Marcus Still RBI single.
Griffin Roberts tossed four shutout innings to earn the win in the seven inning game. Chase Haney notched the save while Caleb Armour threw a complete game in taking the loss.
Amsterdam 7 Oneonta 2 (Game Two)
The Amsterdam Mohawks limited the Oneonta Outlaws to just two hits as they swept the Outlaws in a doubleheader.
A Tristen Carranza RBI single in the first inning gave Amsterdam an early 1-0 lead. Then in the third, Teddy Cillis hit a two-run double and Terrence Pinkston hit an RBI single to extend the lead to 4-0. A Yale Hughes RBI single in the bottom of the third scored Oneonta’s first run of the game. The Mohawks scored a lone run in the fourth before each team plated a run in the fifth.
Mike Bonaiuto earned the win for Amsterdam while Mark Giallanzo took the loss for Oneonta.
Victor 10 Elmira 4
The Victor RailRiders scored eight runs in the first three innings to beat the Elmira Pioneers, 10-4, at Dunn Field.
A Nathan Koslowski RBI single and a sacrifice fly in the first made it a 2-0 game. Then in the second, an error, a wild pitch and a Jack Zagaja RBI single extended the lead to 6-0. The RailRiders tacked on two more in the third on an error and a sacrifice fly. Elmira scored all four of its runs in the fourth inning, two coming via wild pitch. The RailRiders scored the final two runs of the game in the sixth inning.
Eoin McAvinchey struck out five over six innings to earn the win for Victor as Taylor Ahearn took the loss for Elmira, which is still one win or a Utica loss away from clinching the West Division.
Jamestown 4 Geneva 2
