Mohawks drop Wednesday decision to Dutchmen

Filed by the Amsterdam Mohawks

On one of the better nights we've seen in the past week, baseball was finally played in full again in Amsterdam. The Amsterdam Mohawks (1-3), fell to eastern division rival, the Albany Dutchmen (3-0) 6-5 despite a late game rally by the Mohawks.

Albany put the first run on the board in the top of the second inning when shortstop Tyler Orris (Millersville College) crossed the plate after Mohawks starting pitcher Trey Wingenter (Auburn) threw a wild pitch past catch Keith Skinner (Fairfield).

Amsterdam answered back in the bottom of the inning when Colin Gay (Maine) beat out what would've been an inning-ending double play. Gay beat the bang-bang play at first allowing Josh Gardiner (Radford) to score.

Albany's first baseman Matt Dacey (Michigan) led off the top of the third by swinging hard at the first pitch offered by the Mohawks' Trey Wingenter. Dacey's ball landed over the right field fence at Shuttleworth for the only home run of the game, putting the Dutchmen up 2-1.

The Dutchmen would score two in the fifth and sixth innings each to bolster the score to 6-2. In the fifth inning, Luke Nethaway (Saint Rose) hit a double to left center, just out of the reach of Mohawks' centerfielder Ed Charlton (New Jersey Tech). The Nethaway double score both Zack Remillard (Coastal Carolina) and Matt Dacey.

In the sixth inning, a Zach Remillard double would score Orris and Nick Morton (Trinity) to finish out the scoring for the Dutchmen.

The Mohawks would make a valiant effort for a comeback in the eighth inning, scoring three runs. Ed Charlton scored on a Shane Zimmer (Canisius) single to right that split the first and second basemen. Then, Devin Wenzel (Cincinnati) reached base on an error, which allowed Colin Gay to score to pull the lead within two for the Mohawks. Then a Brian Ruby (Binghampton) sacrifice fly brought Shane Zimmer across the plate. The Mohawks were within one run; a 6-5 ballgame.

The Dutchmen, however, closed the door on the Mohawks, shutting them down 1, 2, 3 in the ninth inning. Albany's Jimmy Davitt ((1-0)earned the win for the Albany Dutchmen and Ben Seabrook earned the save. Trey Wingenter took the loss (0-1).
