Recap - Dutchmen overpowered by Oneonta's offense

The Oneonta Outlaws recorded 14 hits, anchored by a three-hit performance from Zander Wiel (Vanderbilt) including a two-run home run in the 4th inning, and defeated Albany 6-4 Wednesday night.

The Dutchmen started the scoring in the 2nd as Gasporra led off with a walk. After Lisle was unable to field a sacrifice bunt attempt by Jared Martin (Cumberlands), Andrew Pezzuto successfully laid down a bunt to load the bases. Mike Triller singled through the left side to plate a pair but Albany would not be able to increase their lead. A lineout and a double-play would end the inning for the Dutchmen.

The Outlaws would tie the score and then some in the top of the 4th off all-star Matt Snyder (Virginia Tech). Shane Crain’s (Louisville) double set up Wiel’s game-tying home run to left. Clay Holcomb (Troy University) would start things up again for Oneonta with a single and would come around to score two batters later on a single by Omar Garcia (State College of Florida) after advancing to second on a groundout. A throwing error by Snyder would allow Garcia to score on a single by Orlando Rivera (State College of Florida) and take a 4-2 lead.

The Dutchmen would knot the score at 4 in the bottom of the 5th on a double by Will Remillard after an error by Lisle put runners on 2nd and 3rd. However, Oneonta responded in the 7th to take the lead for good behind three consecutive hits with two outs, two of which were doubles. These two runs would prove to be enough and Oneonta improved their record to 22-20 while Albany dropped to 19-21.

From the 6th inning on the bullpen would hold strong. Matt Schmitt (Illinois State) entered the game in the top of the 6th and mowed down Dutchmen hitters. Schmitt surrendered no hits or walks in three innings of action and picked up his second win of the season, and first since game two of the PGCBL season. Clay Bates (Clemson) picked up his 3rd save of the year, pitching a perfect ninth.

Garcia, Rivera, Crain, and Holcomb all recorded two hits for the Outlaws while Will Remillard (College of Charleston) and Triller both had two RBI in the Dutchmen’s losing effort. Garcia also recorded three stolen bases on the night for the Outlaws, raising his total to 26 in 36 games played this season.

The Dutchmen will face off with the 4th-place Newark Pilots on Thursday and look to gain a game back in the standings as they make a push for the playoffs with just 7 games remaining.
