Last Night’s Games:

Elmira 4 Adirondack 3 (Game One): The Elmira Pioneers scored four runs in the top of the second and it proved to be enough as they beat the Adirondack Trail Blazers, 4-3, in game one of a doubleheader.

In the top of the second, an error scored two runs, Dalton Hoiles hit a sacrifice fly and Will LaRue hit an RBI single. Adirondack got a run back in the fourth on a sacrifice fly and two back in the fifth on an error to finish the game’s scoring.

Jared Proctor allowed the three Adirondack runs in five innings of work while getting the win. Ryan Bellomo tossed a scoreless bottom of the seventh to notch the save for the Pioneers and Will Jahn took the loss for Adirondack.

Elmira 8 Adirondack 3 (Game Two): The Elmira Pioneers swept a doubleheader against the Adirondack Trail Blazers with an 8-3 in game two in Boonville.

A sacrifice fly from Sam Clark got the Pioneers the lead in the top of the first with a sacrifice fly. Clark extended the lead to 4-0 in the third with a three-run home run. A Ryan Paige RBI groundout for Adirondack in the home half got the Trail Blazers on the board.

A Mike Korchak RBI single and a sacrifice fly extended the Elmira lead to 6-3 in the fourth and the final two Pioneers runs came around in the seventh on a Josh Lovelady RBI single and another sacrifice fly. Adirondack scored a run in the bottom of the seventh, but it wasn’t enough as Elmira prevailed.

Korchak tossed five innings of two-run ball to get the win for Elmira, while Jason Martin gave up the first six Pioneer runs to take the loss.

Mohawk Valley 6 Utica 3 (Game One): The Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs clinched second place in the East Division with a 6-3 win over the Utica Brewers in game one of a doubleheader in Little Falls.

Utica struck first with a sacrifice fly in the top of the first. Mason McClellan hit a solo home run in the second and Kyle Schade hit an RBI single in the third to extend the lead to 3-0. Anthony Herrera, who ended up getting the save in the game, hit his second home run of the season in the home half of the third to put the DiamondDawgs on the board.

Mohawk Valley tied the game in the fourth inning by scoring two runs, including one on a Colin Hawk RBI single. Sam Machonis gave the DiamondDawgs the lead for good in the sixth with a solo home run to lead off the inning and two more runs came around to score on a Brian Cox RBI double and a Herrera RBI single.

Payton Coddou tossed five innings for Mohawk Valley, allowing the three Utica runs, to get the win. Chase Cleary gave up all six DiamondDawg runs to take the loss.

Mohawk Valley 8 Utica 7 (Game Two): The Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs held on for an 8-7 win over the Utica Brewers to sweep a doubleheader in Little Falls.

Kyle Schade got Utica on the board first in the top of the first with an RBI single. An RBI groundout in the second extended the Utica lead to 2-0 before RBI singles from Anthony Capo (two RBIs) and Thomas Walraven, as well as a bases loaded walk, gave Mohawk Valley a 4-2 lead.

Newcomer Jonathan Lindau and Brian Cox both hit RBI singles for the DiamondDawgs in the third before Utica came back with a four-run inning to tie the game. Vincent Capone hit a three-RBI double to pull within a run and a wild pitch scored him.  A Colin Hawk RBI single in the home half of the inning gave Mohawk Valley the lead for good and a sacrifice fly added some insurance, which was needed as Utica scored a lone run in the top of the seventh.

Zachary Vennaro got the win for the DiamondDawgs after allowing the first six Utica runs in five innings of work. Alec Morrison took the loss for Utica after allowing the two runs in the fourth.

Newark 4 Victor 1 (Game One): The Newark Pilots scored four runs in the first two innings to beat the Victor RailRiders, 4-1, in game one of a doubleheader at Colburn Park.

An E6 in the bottom of the first made it a 1-0 game and the Pilots’ three runs in the second inning came on a William Gorman RBI single to right field and a Blake Valley two-RBI triple. Victor scored its only run of the game in the top of the fifth on a Tommy Wagner RBI single.

Daniel Imbro tossed a complete game, allowing just the one Victor run, to get the win for Newark. John Saviano gave up the four Newark runs to take the loss. 

Victor 4 Newark 1 (Game Two): The Victor RailRiders scored two runs in both the second and fifth innings to beat the Newark Pilots, 4-1, and salvage a split of a doubleheader.

In the second, an error and a Nick Boland sacrifice fly scored the two runs for the visitors. Newark’s Willy Yahn cut the lead to 2-1 in the bottom of the fourth with an RBI single for the Pilots’ only run of the game. In the top of the fifth, Mark Cardinalli hit a two-RBI triple to left field to extend the Victor lead to 4-1, which wound up being the final score.

Austin Wilson allowed the one Newark run in five innings of work to get the win for the RailRiders, while Clayton Spiker took the loss after giving up the four Victor runs (three earned) in six innings.
