Last Night’s Games:

Newark 9 Victor 4: The Newark Pilots scored seven runs in the top of the first inning to beat the Victor RailRiders, 9-4, in Victor.

The Pilots seven-run inning came on a sacrifice fly, a Mike Lanza RBI single, a bases loaded walk and a Kevin Biondic grand slam, which was the first in Pilots history. Victor got a run back in the bottom of the inning on a Brady Acker RBI single and Acker drove in the second Victor run in the bottom of the fifth with a sacrifice fly. An Evan Fernandez solo home run in the bottom of the sixth made it a 7-3 game. 

A wild pitch scored the last Victor run in the bottom of the eighth before Newark scored two more in the top of the ninth on a Mark Martin RBI single and a wild pitch.

Patrick Ryan pitched a quality start of six innings and three runs (all earned) in getting the win and Vinny Martin notched the save. John Saviano allowed seven of the nine Newark runs in taking the loss. 

Utica 5 Glens Falls 4: A walk-off bases loaded walk gave the Utica Brewers a 5-4 win over the Glens Falls Dragons at Donovan Stadium on Tuesday.

In the bottom of the eleventh, the bases were loaded for Tadarious Hawkins who walked on five pitches to score Ryan Cox and give Utica the win.

The Brewers took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second on a Taylor Olmstead two-RBI triple. Glens Falls scored four runs in the top of the fourth, though, to take a 4-2 lead. Utica cut the lead in half in the sixth on a Cox RBI single and tied the game in the seventh on an RBI groundout. 

Wei-yang Tsao pitched three scoreless innings in earning the win for Utica while Chris Bradt gave up the walk-off run to take the loss.

Amsterdam 4 Albany 0: The Amsterdam Mohawks scored a lone run in four separate innings to beat the Albany Dutchmen, 4-2, for the second-consecutive night.

Macy Holdsworth hit an RBI single in the bottom of the second, Brendan Tracy scored on an error in the third, Tracy hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth and Gage West hit a solo home run in the fifth to account for the four runs.

Five Amsterdam pitchers combined on a five-hit shutout. Jake Mielock allowed two hits over five scoreless innings to earn the win. Albany starter Brandon Nylin gave up three of the four Amsterdam runs to take the loss.

Mohawk Valley 2 Saugerties 1: The Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs held off a ninth inning Saugerties rally to beat the Stallions, 2-1, in Little Falls.

The DiamondDawgs scored the first run of the game in the bottom of the third on a sacrifice fly and added another run in the fourth to make it a 2-0 game. An error with the bases loaded in the top of the ninth scored Taylor Luckenbill, but a double play ended the threat and Mohawk Valley escaped with the win.

Adam Ashenfarb struck out six batters in 7.1 scoreless innings to get the win for the DiamondDawgs and Anthony Herrera induced the double play to end the game and notch the save. Andrew Bruss gave up the two Mohawk Valley runs to take the loss for Saugerties.

Elmira 16 Adirondack 6: The Elmira Pioneers erupted for 16 runs to beat Adirondack, 16-6, in Boonville.

The Pioneers scored multiple runs in five different innings, including three in the second, five in the fourth, two in the fifth and eighth and four in the ninth. Elmira capitalized on two Adirondack errors and totaled 13 hits on the night. Ryan Perteet went 3-for-6 with seven RBIs and Christian Santisteban took over the PGCBL lead in RBIs with three.

Nick Fanneron led the Adirondack attack with a 2-for-5 night with three RBIs.

Jared Proctor tossed five scoreless innings with seven strikeouts to earn the win and Tyler Childrose gave up eight runs (all earned) to take the loss for Adirondack.
