Last Night’s Games:

Victor 5 Utica 0 (Game One): The Victor RailRiders were leading a game against Utica 4-0 on June 5 when the game was suspended. The RailRiders and Brewers finished the game on Monday and Victor won, 5-0.

The first run of the game didn’t come until the bottom of the third inning when a sacrifice fly scored Dylan Swetman to make it 1-0 Victor. The RailRiders scored two more runs in the bottom of the fourth on an error and an RBI groundout to extend the lead to 3-0 and a Pete Carrier RBI double in the sixth made it a 4-0 game. The only run scored on Monday came in the eighth on a strikeout.

Mitch Patishall started the game on June 5 and tossed five scoreless innings with six strikeouts to earn the win while Chun-Hao Lo gave up the first three Victor runs (two earned) on June 5 to take the loss.

Victor 4 Utica 2 (Game Two): The Victor RailRiders held off a ninth inning Utica rally to beat the Brewers, 4-2, and sweep a doubleheader for the second-straight night. 

Victor scored its first two runs in the bottom of the sixth inning on two sacrifice flies. A Brady Acker RBI double in the seventh and a wild pitch in the eighth accounted for the other two RailRider runs.

In the top of the ninth, a Vincent Capone RBI single plated a run and a Tadarious Hawkins RBI single cut the lead to two, but it wasn’t enough as Victor held on and prevailed.

Victor starter Luke Tomczyk struck out eight batters and gave up just three hits in six scoreless innings to pick up the win and Chris Kemp notched the save. For Utica, starter Patrick Bellinger took the loss after giving up the first two Victor runs in six innings of work, while striking out seven batters.

Mohawk Valley 10 Newark 1 (Game One): In the continuation of a suspended game, also from June 5, the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs beat the Newark Pilots, 10-1.

The DiamondDawgs scored six runs in the top of the first inning to get on the board early. An RBI groundout, a JD Osborne RBI double, an error and a Troy Scocca three-run home run accounted for the six runs. An RBI fielder’s choice in the fourth and an RBI groundout in the seventh extended the lead to 8-0. Newark scored its lone run in the bottom of the seventh on an RBI groundout. Mohawk Valley scored two more runs in the top of the ninth to extend the lead.

DiamondDawg starter Marcus Failing tossed a complete game in earning the win. Failing struck out eight batters and allowed five hits in the one-run outing. Newark’s Daniel Imbro lasted just an inning and a third in taking the loss. 

Mohawk Valley 12 Newark 2 (Game Two):

Mohawk Valley got on the board early, scoring a lone run in the top of the first on an Anthony Capo RBI double. Newark answered in the home half of the inning on a Gabe Levanti RBI single. The big inning for the DiamondDawgs came in the third when they scored six runs. A Ryan Stekl RBI triple scored Chris Rave, Sam Machonis hit an RBI double, Troy Scocca hit an RBI single, Malcolm Kelsey hit a two-RBI double and Andrew Turner hit an RBI single to account for the six runs. 

The DiamondDawgs added three more in the sixth on a Thomas Walraven two-RBI triple and a Ryan Stekl sacrifice fly. Two more runs were scored in the ninth for the visitors as Capo hit an RBI double and a double play scored another. Newark got a run in the bottom of the ninth on another Levanti RBI single.

Mohawk Valley starter David Palmer allowed just the one run in 6.2 innings of work to get the win. Newark starter Clayton Spiker took the loss after allowing 10 runs (all earned) in 5.1 innings of work.

Amsterdam 4 Albany 2: The Amsterdam Mohawks won their fifth-straight game by beating the Albany Dutchmen, 4-2, at Bob Bellizzi Field on Monday.

The game was scoreless until the top of the third inning when a Hunter Tackett RBI single put Amsterdam ahead, 1-0. Tackett came around to score in the fifth inning on a Brendan Tracy RBI single to make it 2-0. The final two Amsterdam runs came in the top of the sixth on a Justin Yurchak RBI single and a wild pitch.

Albany scored its two runs on a two out, two-RBI single by Week Five Player of the Week Sean Aspinall. A strikeout of Dominic DiCaprio ended the Dutchmen rally and gave Amsterdam its fifth-straight win.

Amsterdam starter Brad Schaenzer tossed a gem, going seven innings and striking out eight batters while allowing just three hits and one walk without giving up a run. Albany starter Gavin Wallace allowed the four Amsterdam runs to take the loss.
