Recap - Glens Falls caps first win of season 11-8

The Glens Falls Golden Eagles came away with their first victory of the season in an 11-8 triumph over the Amsterdam Mohawks.  The Golden Eagles (1-2) jumped out to an early 8-2 lead over the visitors, before making things interesting as Amsterdam (1-1) tied the score.  The Golden Eagles would not be denied tonight, however, as Buddy Putnam ripped an RBI single to right field in the bottom of the seventh to put Glens Falls ahead for good.

Jared Cheek earned his first win of the season with a stellar effort in relief, as he pitched three shutout innings to close out the game.  Amsterdam’s Chase Williamson took the loss.

Amsterdam opened the scoring with a two run homerun from Ross Nethaway to give the Mohwaks a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning.  Glens Falls got off to a hot start with a four run outburst in the first inning against Amsterdam starter Dan Zlotnick.  Ross Kivett had a one out double down the right field line and after a strikeout from Kevin Meyers, the Golden Eagles loaded the bases on walks from Chase Griffin and Chris King.              

Alberto Morales opened the Eagles scoring as he earned an RBI with a walk, before first baseman Mike Vigliorolo cleared the bases with a double to center over the head of centerfielder Ed Charlton, who slipped on the play.

The Golden Eagles again rode the erratic pitching of Zlotnick in the second inning, as Dylan Bosheers led off with a walk, and would eventually score on a bases loaded walk from Meyers, following singles from Danny Brennan and Kivett.  Glens Falls scored again in the third when a sacrifice fly from Brennan plated Morales and they struck again in the fourth as Griffin and King scored runs, with RBI’s going to Morales and Vigliarolo.

With the score standing at 8-2, Glens Falls starter Nick Pivetta’s evening was done, allowing just two runs in a solid debut effort.  Reliever Cory Folk came on and surrendered the lead over his two innings of work.  Folk had a rocky start, but settled down to retire four straight batters, where he appeared to be out of trouble, but an Amsterdam rally saw four runs plated in the 6th, which knotted the score.               

The Golden  Eagles bats re-awoke in the seventh, however, after Cheek held the Mohawks at bay in the top half of the inning.  Amsterdam reliever Chase Williamson hit the first two batters, Morales and Vigliarolo, who eventually advanced to third on a wild pitch.  That brought up Putnam who ripped a single to right which put Glens Falls ahead.  Bosheers plated the team’s tenth run on a sacrifice fly to centerfield, which gave the Golden Eagles a two run lead that they would not relinquish.

Meyers plated the team’s eleventh and final fun with an RBI double, which plated Kivett who had reached with a single.  Cheek closed out the win with two more shutout innings on the mound, solidifying a very solid effort from the man out of Georgia Southern.

Glens Falls leaders on the night included Kivett, who went 3 for 5, Vigliarolo, who went 2 for 3 with four runs batted in, and Cheek who had six strikeouts in his three shutout innings of work.

The Golden Eagles are next in action tomorrow when they travel to Albany to take on the Dutchmen.  They return to Glens Falls next Monday, June 11th when they take battle with defending champions Oneonta as the start of a two games homestand with the second half against Cooperstown.  Both games are scheduled for 7 PM.
