Filed by the Glens Falls Golden Eagles...

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. - The Cooperstown Hawkeyes defeated the Glens Falls Golden Eagles, 5-3, on Tuesday night at East Field. Eann Cox (Black Hawk) earned the win for Cooperstown. Cox (4-0) struck out four over 6.1 innings, walked two and allowed three runs on seven hits. Ryan Davis (LeMoyne) started for the Golden Eagles and struck out seven but yielded four runs on six hits in 5.1 innings.

Nate Lotze (Kenyon) led the Hawkeyes offensively going 3-for-4 with one run scored, while Nolan Ray (Kentucky Wesleyan) went 1-for-4 with a two-run double that was part of a five-run sixth inning.

The big inning for Cooperstown came in the top of the sixth when the Hawkeyes erased a 1-0 deficit with five runs on four hits. Cooperstown's Austin March (UC Davis) was hit by a pitch. The Hawkeyes loaded the bases in the inning on back-to-back singles off of the starter Davis, that fell in front of right fielder Ramon Laureano (NEO) who had trouble finding both fly balls off the bat. Three-straight hits forced Glens Falls starter Ryan Davis from the game. Cooperstown's Nolan Ray greeted reliever Zach Merciez (Missouri State) with a two-run double to left field that pushed Cooperstown ahead, 3-1. A two-out throwing error on the Golden Eagles forced across two more Cooperstown scores.

Although the Golden Eagles scored three runs, they had trouble getting anything going against Cooperstown's Eann Cox who frequently would bend but not break. Cox allowed three runs but just one over the first six innings. In the second, Glens Falls grabbed a 1-0 lead on Cox with three-straight singles, the last being an RBI single by Raphael Gladu (College LaFleche) that scored Buddy Putnam (South Florida).

The Eagles then battled back from a 5-1 deficit in the last half of the seventh and managed to scratch across two runs. One run came across via a bases loaded wild pitch that scored Garret Degallier (Tacoma CC); which was then followed by a deep sacrifice fly by Braxton Martinez (Saint Louis).

The Golden Eagles travel to Watertown on Wednesday in their first meeting of this season while Cooperstown will take on Amsterdam at home.
