DiamondDawgs’ 29-inning streak ends in first, lose to Dutchmen, 4-2

The Mohawk Valley Diamond Dawgs had a 29-inning scoreless streak heading into tonight’s game, that lasted the better part of the week.

With one wild pitch, that all came to an end, as the Mohawk Valley Diamond Dawgs gave a very strong effort at Veteran’s Memorial Park, but would come up short, losing 4-2 to the Albany Dutchmen in the second of three games between the two teams this week.

The Dutchmen ended the Diamond Dawgs’ scoreless streak in the very first inning without even recording a hit. Albany would score on two wild pitches by starter Marc Iseneker (Sherrill, NY/St. John Fisher College) which brought home Hunter Boose (Evans, Georgia/Georgia Regents College) and Zach Remillard (Cohoes, NY/Coastal Carolina University). The streak ended at 29 1/3 innings and began during Mohawk Valley’s doubleheader split in the second game with the Glens Falls Dragons on Saturday.

Mohawk Valley cut the lead in half in the bottom of the sixth when a line drive single from Chris Rave (Middletown, NY/Herkimer CC) scored Malcolm Kelsey (Piscataway, NJ/St. John Fisher). That was all the Diamond Dawgs would get, however, as a pop fly to right by JD Osborne (Whitby, Ontario, Canada/Polk State College) would end the inning.

The Diamond Dawgs would tie up the score in the bottom of the eighth, as a blooper to right by Thomas Walraven (Pine Bush, NY/University of New Haven) would score Kelsey. The Dutchmen would get Rave and Walraven into a 4-6-3 double play, however, to end the eighth. 

The Dutchmen would take the lead back in their half of the ninth, as a blooper into left-center by Remillard would score pinch runner Patrick Hisle (Bethesda, Maryland/University of Maryland). The lead would grow back to two as a long fly ball to right by Michael Fitzsimmons (Eads, Tennessee/University of Mississippi would score Tyler Nelin (Virginia Beach, Virginia/George Mason University).  

That would be all that Albany (7-6) would need, as Zak Spivy (Naples, Florida/Polk State College)would set Mohawk Valley down in order to close the door on the game.

Spivy would get the win for the Dutchmen. Anthony Herrera (McKinney, Texas/University of Louisiana-Monroe) would be saddled with the loss for the Diamond Dawgs (7-6), who see their four-game winning streak come to an end.

The Diamond Dawgs look to start a new streak Friday night as these two teams will meet again, this time at Bob Bellizzi Field.
