Pisani's 10th-Inning Single Seals Golden Eagles Victory

Glens Falls, NY – In front of the 1,132 in attendance, Anthony Pisani’s (Southern Maine) walk-off, bases loaded hit in the 10th inning led Glens Falls to a 5-4 victory over the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs on Sunday night. The Golden Eagles are now 7-0 on the season at East Field and are 2-1 against Mohawk Valley.

Golden Eagles reliever Brennan Perry (Southern Maine) picked up his first win of the season pitching a scoreless tenth inning while DiamondDawgs reliever Dustin Stanton (Southern Maine) went two and 2/3 getting the loss.

Clayton Brown (Tacoma C.C) led off the tenth with a double to right field. Zac Hawkins reached on an error and then Mike Kendel (Kansas State) was intentionally walked to load the bases. Kyle Ruchim (Northwestern) fouled out and Dan Klein (Kansas State) grounded into a fielder’s choice. Then with two outs and a 2-2 count, Glens Falls shortstop Pisani drove Stanton’s pitch to center field giving the Golden Eagles their first extra inning win of the year.

Golden Eagles’ starter Derek Mazzio (St.Louis) and DiamondDawgs’ starter Selby Brummett (Paradise Valley C.C) went five innings each and got a no decision. Mazzio gave up six hits and struck out eight while Brummett allowed four hits and struck out five.

Mohawk Valley grabbed a 1-0 lead on the Michael Gunn (Christian Brothers H.S.) solo home run to right field in the top of the fourth inning. It was Gunn’s first home run of the season.

The Golden Eagles stormed back in the bottom half of the inning. David Olsen (Tacoma C.C) led off with a single and then scored on Hawkins’ RBI double tying the game at 1-1. Then with one out, Ruchim (Northwestern) doubled Hawkins home to give the Golden Eagles a 2-1 lead. With both hits, Ruchim and Hawkins upped their season RBI totals to five.

DiamondDawgs catcher Jake Saylor (Cincinnati) scored on Hassan Evan’s suicide squeeze to tie the game at 2-2 in the top of the sixth inning. However, Glens Falls took a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the inning as Josh Anderson (Yavapai) and David Olsen each reached on an error and later scored.

The Golden Eagles held a two-run lead into the ninth inning but Mohawk Valley catcher Jake Saylor got a two-out, two-RBI single to score Taylor Townsend (Kentucky) and Cullen Wacker (Auburn). Saylor’s third hit of the night tied the score at 4-4.

The game remained tied until Pisani’s tenth inning heroics.

Glens Falls (10-2) is back in action on Monday night against the Newark Pilots. Game time is 7 pm at East Field on CSEA Night. This will be the first ever meeting between the Golden Eagles and Pilots on the season.
