The Adirondack Trail Blazers and the Newark Pilots switched venues for another matchup on Monday, which ended similarly to Saturday’s matchup in Newark, as the Pilots won 10-6 in Boonvile.
From the first pitch, the Pilots seemed to be unstoppable from the plate, scoring off a solo home run by Luke Reynolds in the first inning. After recording only one hit in the next two innings, the Pilots would light up the scoreboard after a 2-RBI double from Bo-Hao Huang. The offensive onslaught continued as Newark would tally three runs in the fifth inning and four runs in the sixth, including a three-run home run by Darian Herncane in that inning. Newark would finish with 13 hits on the night, with all but two batters recording hits.
Matt Hosman got the ball rolling for Adirondack from the plate, reaching on an error. After a double, a walk and two retired batters with the bases loaded, Chris Collins would pick up an RBI single to score Hosman from third base. The Blazers were able to capitalize on some critical Pilots’ mistakes. After Paul Piccolino walked in the bottom of the fifth, a wild pickoff throw to first base would advance Piccolino to third. He would score off a sacrifice fly by Chris Talbott. Kenny Collins also crossed home after a wild pitch from Jason Hendricks. But despite five errors on the night by Newark and picking up 10 hits of their own, the Blazers could not convert all those mistakes into more runs.
The winning pitcher for the game was Hendricks, his first win of the season (1-2). Connor Donahue picked up his second loss on the season (0-2).
These two teams will meet once again on Wednesday, this time in Newark.
