Monica’s Three Homers Power Mohawks to Doubleheader Sweep of Victor

Handsome Monica (Arizona) homered three times in two games combined to help the Amsterdam Mohawks defeat the Victor RailRiders 14-4 and 6-1 in a doubleheader on Tuesday night.


Monica finished the night 3-for-7 with three home runs, four runs, and six RBIs.  Craig Dedelow (Indiana) contributed multiple Victor was led by Matt Fallon (Black Hawk College) who went 2-for-6 with two singles and three RBIs and Connor Golden (Marietta) who went 1-for-3 with a single and run scored in the second game.



Monica’s first home run came in the bottom of the third and extended the Mohawks lead to 5-0 as Brendan Tracy (Fairfield) and Dedelow also came around to score as part of a five run inning. Monica’s solo shot in the bottom of the fourth extended the Mohawks lead to 8-0. Victor would finally get on the board in the top of the sixth, before Amsterdam responded with a six-run bottom half that put the game out of reach.


In game two, Monica picked up right where he left off. With Mohawks ahead 1-0 after Tracy’s RBI single scored Drew Freedman (Wake Forest), Monica launched his third home run of the doubleheader, a two-run shot to make it 3-0 Amsterdam. Kyle Dean (BYU) added to the lead with a two-RBI double to score Tyler Kirkpatrick (Marist) and Scott Manea (NC State).


The RailRiders scratched a run across in the top of the sixth when Connor Golden (Marietta) came in to score on Matt Fallon’s (Black Hawk College) RBI single. Amsterdam answered in the bottom half after Tracy beat out an infield single, advanced to second on a wild pitch, and scored on Manea’s single to left.
