Evan Alderman hit a leadoff home run for the Trail Blazers in the bottom of the first and Kyle Walker hit an RBI single later in the inning to give the home team an earl 2-0 lead. A Kyle Schade RBI double in the fourth cut the lead in half and a Dominick Bregar two-RBI single in the fifth gave the Brewers the lead. Adirondack responded in the home half as Connor Manderson hit a solo home run, a passed ball scored a run and Tim Burr hit an RBI single.

Walked extended the Adirondack lead in the sixth with a three-RBI double. Both teams scored runs aided by an error in the seventh, which finished the scoring.

Albany 6 Glens Falls 1: The Albany Dutchmen used a gem from Nick CIoffi to pick-up a win in the East Division standings and beat the Glens Falls Dragons, 6-1, at Bob Bellizzi Field.

Cioffi tossed a complete game, struck out nine batters, allowed just five hits and gave up one run in getting the win.

The Dutchmen got on the board in the first on a Jack Weiller RBI single, but didn’t score again until the sixth inning as Sean Aspinall hit an RBI triple, an error plated a run, a bases loaded walk scored a run and finally a sacrifice fly scored the fourth run of the inning. 

Michael Fitzsimmons hit an RBI single in the bottom of the seventh to finish the Dutchmen scoring. Glens Falls’ lone run came in the ninth as Ryan Hooper hit a solo home run.
