Recap - Golden Eagles Give Outlaws First Loss

The Glens Falls Golden Eagles recorded victory number two of the young season tonight, defeating the Oneonta Outlaws 4-2.

Cory Folk (Buffalo) was the pitcher of record, as he improves to 1-0 on the season. Brett Lisle (Virginia) was dealt the loss after six innings of work and Jared Cheek (Georgia Southern) notched his first save of the young season.

The meeting was the teams’ first as members of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL). Previously, the Golden Eagles and the Saratoga Phillies, as the Outlaws used to be known met in the New York Collegiate Baseball League (NYCBL).

The Golden Eagles used a two-out rally in the home half of the first as a Mike Vigliarolo RBI single (St. Louis) plated Kevin Meyers (NE Oklahoma) to open up an early 1-0 lead for the hosts.

Two innings later, Glens Falls doubled their lead as Danny Brennan (St. Louis) singled to lead off and eventually came around to score on an RBI groundout by Meyers.

The Outlaws would not go quietly, however, as an RBI single by Zac Johnson (Illinois St.) cut the lead in half.

The run was answered by Glens Falls in the bottom of the fifth as Buddy Putnam (South Florida) scored on a wild pitch by Lisle, restoring the life to the East Field crowd.

Omar Garcia (State College of Florida), seemingly the little engine that could for the Outlaws single-handedly cut the lead in half in the 8th as a single, steals of second and third and a throwing error by Glens Falls catcher Chase Griffin (Georgia Southern) scored the Oneonta leadoff hitter.

Sensing the momentum swing, head coach John Mayotte called for the hard-throwing Cheek out of the bullpen. The Georgia Southern Eagle came in and slammed the door shut, getting Connor Jones (Villanova) looking to end the scoring threat, after Wes Judish (San Diego) had left with the bases full of Outlaws.

Providing the insurance run, Kevin Meyers (NE Oklahoma) scored on a throwing error by the erratic Oneonta reliever Ben Mordini (Utah). Originally, it looked as if Meyers had been caught in a rundown, but Mordini’s throw sailed into left field near the Outlaws bullpen and the Glens Falls shortstop scored standing up.

Offensive leaders for the Golden Eagles were Brennan, Meyers, Vigliarolo and Putnam who all recorded a single hit apiece, accounting for all four of home team’s hits on the night.

The win improves Glens Falls to 2-3 on the young season, while Oneonta drops to 3-1.

The Golden Eagles will return to action tomorrow, June 12 when the Cooperstown Hawkeyes come to town on Colortyme night at East Field.
