Here’s a look back at the scores from around the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Tuesday, June 27:

Amsterdam (16-6) 8, Utica (4-17) 7 (13 Innings)
The Mohawks and Blue Sox engaged in a thrilling battle on Tuesday night at Shuttleworth Park, one that took 13 innings and just over four hours to complete. Although Utica scored the first four runs of the game, Amsterdam stormed back with a three runs in both the fifth and six frames to take a 6-4 lead. That advantage didn’t last long, as Nathan Thyssen (Concordia (Wis.) slugged a three-run homer, as the Blue Sox regained a 7-6 lead. After leveling the score in the bottom of the ninth, the Mohawks walked off in the 13th on Eric Rivera’s (Florida Atlantic) solo home run. Brandon Reitz (Florida State) picked up the win after striking out 12 in 6.0 innings of relief.

Elmira (8-13) 12, Oneonta (6-15) 3
The Outlaws chipped away at the Pioneers’ lead in the middle innings, cutting a 6-1 deficit down to just three runs, but Elmira tacked on six more runs in the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings combined to secure a lopsided win. Every Pio finished with at least one hit, led by lead-off batter Brett Rodriguez’s (Wofford) 3-for-5 effort with three RBIs. His partner in the middle infield, second baseman Andrew Orzel (Wofford), went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBIs while batting second in the lineup. The two Wofford Terriers did most of their damage against college teammate Jake Hershman (Wofford), who was tagged with the loss after giving up seven runs on eight hits and five strikeouts in 5.1 innings for Oneonta.

Jamestown (16-5) 19, Adirondack (8-11) 5
The Jammers’ offense went off on Tuesday night and scored 19 runs on 17 hits in a blowout against the Trail Blazers. Twelve different Jamestown batters recorded a hit, with Ben Brookover (UTSA) going 2-for-4 with a homer and five RBIs, and Collin Stack (UMBC) finishing 3-for-6 with two home runs and seven RBIs. Stack crushed a three-run dinger in the both the third and eighth innings, while Brookover’s long ball went down as a grand slam in the sixth. With the offense producing runs in bunches, David Lyskawa (Niagara County C.C.) twirled a gem on the mound for Jamestown. The southpaw struck out 11 in his 7.0 one-hit innings to up his record to 2-1 on the season.

Newark (5-15) 4, Geneva (16-7) 3
The Pilots held on for a one-run victory over the resurgent Red Wings at Colburn Park. Newark tallied three runs in the third, with two coming home on an Over Torres (Yavapai) double, before adding one in the fourth on a Jorge Leon (Hendrix) sac fly. Geneva’s Jake Evans cut the Pilots’ lead down to one with a two-run double of his own in the top of the seventh inning, but he was thrown out at home trying to score on a Mikey Arman (Kenyon) single to preserve Newark’s slim advantage. Henry Martinez (Cypress) fanned seven in 6.0 innings of work to earn the win, while Kyle Griffen (Louisiana Tech) saved the game with a perfect ninth.
