Mohawks Walk Off in 10th, Win Fourth Straight

Aiden McDermott’s (St. John’s) RBI double to right center field gave the Amsterdam Mohawks a 7-6 win over the Glens Falls Dragons Tuesday night at Shuttleworth Park. The win was the Mohawks fourth in-a-row.

McDermott paced the team going 2-for-4 with a single, double, and an RBI. The Dragons were led by Zach McIlroy (Anderson) who went 3-for-4 with three doubles and an RBI.

Amsterdam jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Riley Mahan (Kentucky) led off with a walk. Justin Yurchak (Wake Forest) followed with a single. After a wild pitch advanced both runners, Hunter Tackett (Auburn) singled to score Mahan. Tackett would then steal second, forcing a throwing error from the catcher that allowed Yurchak to score and Tackett moved to third. Brendan Tracy (Fairfield) singled with one out to drive in Tackett. Tracy would provide the fourth run after advancing on two wild pitches and a second throwing error by the Dragons’ catcher.

Glens Falls answered in the 4th. Mark Powell (Bucknell) walked and was advanced to second by Ryan Hooper’s (UC Davis) single. Jake Vieth (Tacoma CC) followed with an RBI double and Hooper would score on a two-out RBI single by Oscar Rodriguez (St. Thomas University). The Dragons added another run in the 5th when Danny Oliveri (Triton) and Powell singled with one out, followed by Hooper reaching via a hit by pitch. With the bases loaded, Vieth added a sacrifice fly to left to make it 4-3.

Glens Falls took the lead in the 8th on great baserunning. Vieth led off with a walk. With one out, the Dragons recorded two singles and a double by Harrison Bragg (Tacoma CC), Rodriguez, and McIlroy respectively. The latter two providing RBIs, while Bragg scored as the ball was being thrown around the diamond by the Mohawks.

Amsterdam scratched one run across in the eighth on an RBI walk by Tyler Kirkpatrick (Marist). The Mohawks tied the game in the ninth when Andrew Rouse (Marist) had a pinch-hit RBI hit by pitch to make it 6-6. In the bottom of the 10th, Kirkpatrick led off with a walk and then McDermott skied one over the right fielder’s head to the wall, scoring Kirkpatrick.

The win went to Tyler Smith (Canisius) who is now 2-0. The loss was charged to Mike McFerran (Saginaw Valley State) who didn’t record an out in the 10th.

Glens Falls dropped to 5-7 and looks to bounce back Wednesday night at East Field where they host the Newark Pilots at 7 p.m. Amsterdam will look to win their fifth-straight when they travel to Boonville to play the Adirondack Trail Blazers at 7 p.m.
