Mohawks Walk-Off With Win Over Wizards

The losses do not come much tougher than the one Rob Rogers (Keystone) endured on Tuesday night. He was not even on the mound when Andrew Green (East Tennessee) accepted a four pitch walk with the bases loaded to provide the Moahwks with a 3-2 win over Watertown.

Rogers entered Shuttleworth with an ERA just a pinch below six but spun eight wonderful innings against the PGCBL’s top offense. The righty had surrendered just five hits and carried nine strikeouts and a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the ninth.
Luke Maile (Kentucky) was the first man to the plate in the bottom of the last inning and he bounded a grounder up the middle, Wizard’s second baseman Alex Maldanado (Holy Cross) fielded behind second base but was unable to throw out Maile on a tight play at first.

After Josh Netheway (Albany) flied out, Kody Ortman (Auburn) lashed a single through the middle to put the tying runs aboard. A wild pitch bumped the runners into scoring position and then Matt Mack (Radford) flared a single into center, Maile scored and Fisher – pinch running for Ortman – advanced to second on the throw home.

This was the flurry that finally sent Rogers packing after eight and a third innings – he was replaced by Tim Sylvester (St. John Fisher). The first batter to face the new pitcher, Josh Alexander (Utah), was intentionally walked to bring Demarcus Henderson (Mississippi State) to the plate. Henderson hit a roller toward shortstop with the infield pulled in, Angel Rosa (Alcorn State) bobbled the grounder and the game was tied.

With one out in a tie game and the bases loaded, Andrew Green hopped into the box and never took the bat off of his shoulder as he walked on four pitches to drive in the game-winning run.

Brett Houseal’s (Marist) performance was hidden behind the Mohawk’s ninth inning heroics, the righty narrowly missed his sixth win of the season as he tossed eight innings allowing two runs, seven hits, and a walk.

The fourth inning was the only thorn in Houseal’s side, the Wizards catapulted themselves into the lead with a trio of doubles. The Mohawk’s leader in wins struck out seven and, at one point, retired 10 Wizards in a row.

Mike Dodakian (Dartmouth) pitched a scoreless ninth for his third win of the season.

Erick Gaylord (Campbell) was 3-4 with a double and a run scored.
