Pilots Get Pummeled by DiamondDawgs

The Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs (13-26) easily handled the Newark Pilots (22-18) on Tuesday night at Colburn Park by a final score of 15-2.

The DiamondDawgs’ offense was clicking, totaling 15 hits, six which went for extra bases. They were also aided by some mediocre pitching from the Newark staff. Their five pitchers combined for seven walks, two wild pitches and two batters hit by pitches.

Selby Brummett (Paradise Valley C.C.) on the other hand was sharp on the mound for Mohawk Valley. He went seven strong innings, allowing two runs on six hits. Brummett also fanned six without surrendering a walk.

The DiamondDawgs started the game with a homerun to take a 1-0 lead. Nic Spence (Cincinnati) led off the top of the first with the solo shot over the right field wall.

Up 3-0, Mohawk Valley doubled their run total in the fourth. Mike Fasolo (Mohawk Valley C.C.) would have ended the inning on a third consecutive strikeout from Newark starter Alex Flores (Ohlone), but a wild pitch allowed Fasolo to reach first after the errant swing. With the bases loaded, Hassan Evans (Herkimer County C.C.) hit a two-run double, followed by a RBI single from Cullen Wacker (Aurburn).

Flores didn’t make it out of the fourth inning. In his first start, he gave up six runs on eight hits. Flores struck out four, but also walked two and threw two wild pitches. The following two relievers then surrendered eight runs in the sixth inning alone.

A two-run single by Michael Gunn (Christian Brothers H.S) and a two-run triple by Tyler Kane (Washington) highlighted the eight-run sixth. After six, Mohawk Valley led 14-0.

The Pilots managed to score two runs in the seventh. Randy Villa (San Joaquin Delta) and Sean Osterman (St. John Fisher) began the inning with consecutive doubles. After driving home Villa, Osterman then scored on a RBI groundout from Adam Grace (Genesee C.C.).

The DiamondDawgs tacked on another run in the eighth. Spence finished the night 3-for-4 with three RBI’s and four runs scored. Evans had three hits and three RBI’s.

Nich Boles (Kutztown) pitched the final one and one-third innings for Newark and was the only pitcher on his team that didn’t yield a run. Osterman went 3-for-4 with a RBI and one run scored. Luke Swenson (UC Santa Barbara) had two hits and two stolen bases.

The Newark Pilots are on the road Wednesday as they take on the Amsterdam Mohawks at 7:05 p.m. The Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs travel to Watertown to face the Wizards, also at 7:05 p.m.
