Mohawks mash out season high 17 runs against Rams

Filed by the Amsterdam Mohawks...

The Amsterdam Mohawks raced out to an early big lead and never looked back in drilling the visiting Watertown Rams 17-0 on Tuesday night at Shuttleworth Park. The run-total equals the most in the PGCBL era for Amsterdam which they first accomplished last Tuesday in a 17-7 win on the road at the Adirondack Trail Blazers.

This one was never in doubt. Amsterdam scored 3 in the first, 3 in the 2nd, 4 more in the 3rd inning and then another 5 runs in the 4th to build a 15-0 lead before even the midway point of the game.

For the Mohawks, it is their fourth straight win improving their record to 9-9 with 30 games remaining in the regular season. Amsterdam also twirled their second consecutive shutout victory and notched their third straight game without committing an error in the field.

The Watertown Rams fall to 5-10 with their fourth straight setback..

Naturally, there were some big numbers put up in the offensive explosion for Amsterdam as the team knocked out a 2013 league-high 20 base-hits, 17 of which we singles.

Jordan Ebert (Auburn) led the way with six RBI's including a three-run homer as he went 4-for-6 with three runs scored. The Mohawks are second in the league in long-balls with 13 which have come from eight different players. Only the Adirondack Trail Blazers have more dingers with 15.

John Sansone (Florida State) was 3-for-5 with four runs scored and three driven in.

John Nogowski (Florida State) was fresh off being named PGCBL Player of the Week last week and celebrated the honor by going 3-for-4 with two runs scored and one RBI. He also came in to pitch a shutout inning in the sixth after the margin had gotten out of hand.

Josh Gardiner (Radford) was 3-for-5 with a double and three runs batted in. He was able to stay hot with the bat in the next game
following his big doubleheader on Sunday in which he hit a home run in each contest. The two-bagger in the first inning for Gardiner was his sixth of the season moving him into a three-way tie for the most in the league.

Dylan Dwyer (Kentucky) recorded his first win by lasting five innings and scattering five hits in his shutout stretch.while striking out three.

After Nogowski pitched the sixth, it would be back to the regular relief pitchers to finish the game with Kevin Guthrie (Brown) striking out the side in the seventh, Alex Gagne (Maine) throwing a perfect eighth, and Taylor Butler (LSU) finishing off the shutout with one strikeout in the ninth.

Anthony Magovney (Buffalo) had a rough stretch as the starter in falling to 1-2 allowing nine earned runs and plunking four batters
along the way while also giving up nine hits. J.J. Wagner (Pacific) reached base three times for the Rams with two walks and a single.

The Mohawks travel to Cooperstown in search of their fifth straight victory Wednesday at 5:00 with lefty Matt Snyder (Fulton-Montgomery C.C.) slated to start against the Hawkeyes. Amstedam returns to Shuttleworth Park this Thurday and Friday against the Elmira Pioneers and Glens Falls Golden Eagles respectively.

The Watertown Rams return to the Duffy Fairgrounds Wednesday night hosting the Glens Falls Golden Eagles.
