Dutchmen Tee Off in Win at Glens Falls

The Albany Dutchmen (7-5) took the victory over the Glens Falls Dragons (2-11) Friday night, as the bats pounded out 12 hits.

The Dutchmen were led on the offensive side by Justin Childers (Ohio Dominican), as the team’s leading hitter went 2-for-3, reaching base a team-high 4 times and tallying 3 of the team’s 6 RBIs.

After a quiet first inning from each side, the Dutchmen bats woke up in the 2nd inning, as back-to-back singles from Brent Alford (Augusta) and Dillin Diehm (Indiana State) put runners on 1st and 2nd. After a sacrifice bunt from Micah McHugh (Ole Miss) put the runners on 2nd and 3rd and only 1 out, back-to-back RBI singles from Jack Gethings (Fairfield) and Cole Malloy (Butler) gave the Dutchmen an early 2-0 lead, and an opportunity for more.

And they jumped at the chance.

After Jon Skidmore (Dallas Baptist) walked with 2 outs, Childers cleared the bases with a double off the wall in left field, clearing the bases and making it 5-0 Dutchmen after only 2 innings at the plate.

The Dutchmen also got a strong performance from their pitching staff tonight, as 4 pitchers combined to allow only 6 hits and 1 run from the Dragon bats. Cooper Jones (Southern Miss) got the start, allowing only 1 hit in his 3 shutout innings of work, and Jackson Bubala (Dartmouth) took home the victory, after pitching a solid 2.1 innings.

The Dutchmen also got solid performances from Skidmore, who went 2-for-4 with a run, Diehm, who tallied a 2-for-5 with a run line, Malloy, who finished 2-for-4 with 2 runs and 2 RBI’s, and Gethings, who ended with a 1-for-2 with a run, walk, and RBI line.

Glens Falls will travel to Utica tomorrow for a 6:35 first pitch against the Blue Sox.

The Dutchmen will return home to Bellizzi Field for Werner Ladder and Baseball Bingo Night, as they host the Saugerties Stallions as part of a doubleheader beginning at 5:05. The first game will be a makeup of the rained out game from June 5th.
