Dutchmen Pitching Strong in Sweep Over Pilots

The Albany Dutchmen (12-14) swept Tuesday's double header against the Newark Pilots (15-12) at Colburn Park. Albany took the first game 3-2 and the nightcap 3-1. By league rule, both games of the doubleheader lasted only seven innings. With the two victories, the Dutchmen are now just three games back of the Glens Falls Golden Eagles for second place in the East Division.

In game one, the Dutchmen took an early lead and never looked back thanks to a second inning rally. In the top of the second, Albany plated all three of their runs on their way to 3-1 victory. Joey Boney (Cypress) drove the first run to tie the game 1-1 followed by Ryan Van Amburg (Pepperdine) who gave Albany the lead after scoring on a passed ball. Brandon Trinkwon (UC Santa Barbara) finished the inning off knocking an RBI single.

The Pilots cut the deficit to one run in the fifth, but failed to break even with Albany. Michael Bolling (Lewis) was hit by a Steven Poche (Southeastern Louisiana) before two Dutchmen errors allowed Bolling to score Newark's second run of the game

Pilot stater Jim Glasgow (Lewis) was tagged with his third loss, allowing all three Albany runs in two innings pitched.

Poche finished six innings on the mound, collecting six strikeouts in his second win of the season. Zach Robinson (Miami) earned the save with a one-hit seventh. Trinkwon led the Dutchmen with two hits and one RBI. Poche has now allowed just one earned run in his last 13 innings pitched. The Albany leftty was recently named PGCBL pitcher of the week.

In game two the Dutchmen again scored three runs, this time limiting the Pilots to one to put together en route to 3-1 victory and sweep of the doubleheader.

Newark took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning thanks to an RBI single from Randy Villa (San Joaquin Delta). Carson Beauchaine (Saginaw Valley State) had a no-hitter entering the fifth, but the Dutchmen bats came alive.  A double from Ryan Welke (Northwest Florida) scored Garren Palmer (Georgia Southern) for the tying run and with two outs, Welke scored an unearned run on an error to go up 2-1.

The Dutchmen added a little insurance in the sixth. Pinch-hitter Nikko Echevarria (Nova Southeastern) blazed through the base paths for a triple to right field. A sacrifice fly from Trinkwon scored Echevarria for the two-run advantage.

Cameron Brewer (North Central Texas) pitched five inning and struck out four for Albany, earning his second win of the year. Welke went 1-for-2 with one run and one RBI. Swenson led the Pilots with two hits and also scored the only Newark run. Beauchaine was credited with the loss.

The Dutchmen host the Elmira Pioneers at Bob Bellizzi field at 7 p.m. tonight. For all Dutchmen information visit or follow us @DutchmenPGCBL.
