Filed by the Glens Falls Golden Eagles...

Glens Falls, NY  The Golden Eagles played host to the Newark Pilots on Wednesday night as they saw their comeback fall a few runs short as the Pilots held on to win by a final of 5-3.

The Scoring got started in the fifth when Scott Matthews (Washington (MD)) walked and scored on a base hit by Jeff Edwards (Valparaiso) for Newark. The Pilots tacked on two in the sixth on a wild pitch and a Joey Simmons RBI base hit.

The scoring concluded for the Pilots when Jacob Russel (Kentucky) tripled with two outs and came around to score a few pitches later on a passed ball.

“I sat back and new what was coming.” Stated Golden Eagles shortstop J.Q. Folena who drove in the first run of the game for Glens Falls with an RBI double in the seventh inning. The Golden Eagles stranded two runners in scoring position in the seventh.

“Had a pretty good idea he was coming back with a fastball so I cheated a little bit, got my hands through nicely and got barrel on the baseball.” Stated Buddy Putnam (USF). Putnam's RBI double cut the Pilots lead to 5-2. The Golden Eagles got another run closer when Spencer Johnson (Missouri State) scored on a Manny Forcier (New Mexico JC) double play.

The Golden Eagles could have had a forth run if it weren't for Garrett Degallier (Tacoma C.C.) being called out trying to beat out a grounder to first; as the call could have gone either way. “I was out. I was just a little more frustrated with myself for getting jammed on the first pitch in a big at bat.” Stated Degallier on the play.

The Golden Eagles next home game will be Saturday against the Albany Dutchman (Price Chopper Reading Game). Before that the Golden Eagles hit the road to Elmira (Thursday) and Amsterdam (Friday).

465 were in attendance as the game lasted two hours and forty-two minutes.
