Mohawks Overcome Slow Start To Defeat DiamondDawgs

Wins have come easily for the Mohawks in the month of July. Amsterdam remained torrid on Friday night with a 12-4 win at Shuttleworth.

However, it was the DiamondDawgs who struck first. Mohawk Valley jumped on Amsterdam starter Mark Leiter (NJIT) with a two-out rally in the first. Leiter got the first two outs of ballgame but gave up consecutive singles to Cullen Wacker (Auburn) and Dave Soltis (Bryant) and hit Bryan Bleakly (NJIT) to load the bases with two outs. Hassan Evans (Herkimer County C.C.) followed with a single up the middle to put the visitors ahead 2-0.

The Mohawk bats wasted no time getting right back at Mohawk Valley starter Logan Carman (Southern Maine) as Luke Maile (Kentucky) punched a two-run single into left-field, and Parker Morin (Utah) knocked him in with a single to push the Mohawks in front 3-2.

Maile launched his team-high sixth homer of the season in the third and Matt Mack (Radford) smashed his first dinger of the summer one inning later to widen the lead to 5-2.

In the top of the fifth, George Hajjar (Felician) cut the lead back to two with when he connected with his third homer of the summer.

However, Amsterdam would put the game out of reach in the bottom half of the fifth when they pushed across four runs. Mack and Andrew Green (East Tennessee State) teamed up to crack a couple of run-scoring singles, and Jack Fischer (Wake Forest) plated his first two RBI of the summer with a monster double off the base of the centerfield fence to extend the lead to 9-3.

Michael Gunn (Arkansas) drove in the DiamondDawygs final run of the game in the sixth and Amsterdam got two more in the sixth and another in the seventh to provide the final score, 12-4.

Carman (1-5) gets the loss while Leiter (3-3) wins his third straight decision. Mike Dodakian (Dartmouth) tossed two innings in relief and Bryce Eisenbart (Paradise J.C.) and Chuck Schlegel (Wake Forest) paired up to pitch the final two frames and secure Amsterdam’s 24th victory.

The Mohawks are off tomorrow before the host the Military All-Stars in an exhibition on Sunday evening.
