(ALBANY, NY)– Albany Dutchmen split Wednesday’s doubleheader against the Geneva Red Wings with a 2-1 game one win followed by a 3-2 game two loss.
Albany scratched across both of the game one runs in back to back frames, as Danny Rogers (Central Connecticut State) picked up an RBI double in the 3rd followed by a Matt Bergevin (Fairfield) 4th inning solo home run which would be the eventual game winning run.
Dutchmen pitching dominated in game one as Danny Kelleher (Hofstra) worked four innings with five strikeouts, then Hunter Sabbers (Marist) and Alex Brill (Ohio Dominican) combined for three shutout frames with four punchouts.
In game two, Geneva led 2-1 after four innings, as all runs came across via walks. The Red Wings took a 3-1 lead in the 5th as Wyatt Patchett (Le Moyne) picked up an RBI single.
Albany was able to scratch across one run in the bottom of the 7th courtesy of a wild pitch, but with one out and the bases loaded, the Dutchmen were unable to plate the tying run.
Albany has the day off Thursday before returning home for a pair of 6:35 first pitches on Friday and Saturday against Mohawk Valley and Amsterdam.
