BOONVILLE, N.Y. - The Geneva Red Wings visited the Adirondack Trail Blazers for the first time in 2017 on Monday and hit a total of five home runs and collect 17 hits to pummel Adirondack, 18-6.

Geneva opened the flood gates early in the ball game, scoring four runs in the first four innings of play, gaining a 4-0 lead over the home team. It was the fifth inning, however, where the Red Wings would do the most damage.

In the top of the fifth, the Red Wings sent a total of 15 batters to the plate. Mikey Arman (Kenyon) hit two home runs in the fifth inning alone and hit three overall. He finished with six RBIs and a base hit. Jake Evans (Alabama Southern CC) also hit a home run in the fifth. In total, Geneva put 10 runs on the board in the fifth brought the lead to 14-0.

In the bottom half, Adirondack started to show signs of life. After three consecutive walks and loaded bases to start the inning, Riley Schaefer (Texas Lutheran) hit a bases-clearing double to eliminate the shut out.

The Red Wings continued their slew of offense, tacking on two runs in the top of the sixth and a run in both the seventh and eighth innings. Their lead increased to 18-3. Trustin Riley (Tampa) hit the fifth home run for the Red Wings during the sixth and brought in two runs.

The Blazers tried their best to make a comeback and would put three more runs on the board, including a two-RBI double in the eighth from Hayden Rappaport (Dartmouth) and just one more in the bottom of the ninth. Ultimately, the Blazers dropped their fourth straight home game 18-6.

Jordan Murphy (UT Dallas) picked up his first win this season and Bryce Van Horn (Nova Southeastern) picked up his first loss on the year.

Adirondack will have a chance to get back on the winning side of the scoreboard on Tuesday at home against the Mohawk Valley Diamond Dawgs, kicking off the first game of a three-game series between the two teams this week.

The Trail Blazers and Red Wings will face off again next on Saturday, June 24, in Geneva.
