One game was played on Monday, June 19, as only Geneva and Newark were able to take the field, thanks to inclement weather across the state. Being the lone game of the night, the Red Wings and Pilots put on a show for the fans at Colburn Park and engaged in an entertaining extra-innings contest.
Newark (3-9) 4, Geneva (9-6) 3
The Pilots scored the final four runs of Monday’s game to overcome an early 3-0 deficit and walk off against the Red Wings at Colburn Park. Geneva scored three times in the top of the fourth inning on four singles and one Newark error, but those were the only three runs allowed by starter Peng-Fei Wang (Vanung). Wang, who hails from New Taipei, Taiwan, scattered six hits across 7.0 innings with four strikeouts, but did not earn a decision. The Pilots managed to knot the score at 3-all with two runs in the seventh, the first coming on a Michael O’Connor (Buffalo) RBI single and the latter on a Mark McKenna (Canisius) sac fly. Geneva looked to pull ahead in the 10th with the bases loaded, but Chris Vitale (Erie C.C.) took the mound with two outs and fanned Matt Chamberlain (New Haven) to preserve the tie. Newark responded by loading the bases in the home half of the inning and Colton Carney (Seton Hill) was plunked on the toe by the first pitch he saw from Domenic Nardone (Siena) to force home the winning run.
