The Daily Rundown: June 6, 2014

By Justin Mattingly

There was a full slate of games last night. Let’s look back at the night’s action:

Glens Falls 10 Adirondack 3

A night after scoring only one run, the Glens Falls lineup erupted for ten runs on twelve hits, as the Golden Eagles (1-1) defeated the Adirondack Trail Blazers (1-1) 10-3 in Boonville.

Home runs by Brennan Price and Richard Gugliemi helped pace the Glens Falls scoring attack. The Golden Eagles scored three runs in both the first and seventh innings.

The offense wasn’t the only thing flying high for the Golden Eagles. Starter Williams Durruthy picked up his first win of the season, tossing seven shutout innings, only allowing one hit and striking out five.

For Adirondack, the lightning struck too late. The Trail Blazers rallied to score three runs in the bottom of the ninth, two of which came on a Bryan Toland RBI single.

JQ Folena, Garrett Bernardo, Colton Montgomery and Brennan Price each had two hits for the Golden Eagles.

Newark 3 Amsterdam 2

In the first game of their title defense, Amsterdam fell just short of a comeback, falling 3-2 to the visiting Newark Pilots (2-0). Amsterdam scored in the bottom of the ninth to cut the lead to one but Pilot closer BJ Nobles got Jake Salpietro to fly out to end the game.

With the win Newark is now the only 2-0 team in the PGCBL, with both wins coming on the road. The Pilots received a strong start from Michael Springer, who went six innings allowing one run and three hits while striking out four to notch the win.

Newark’s offense was flown by leftfielder Braxton Wilkes who finished the night 3-for-5 with an RBI. Wilkes got three of the four Newark hits, the other coming on a Louis Silverio home run. 

Amsterdam’s offense was led by number nine hitterJack Czeszewski who finished 3-for-3 on the night. Third baseman Kevin Guthrie drove home a run for the Mohawks.

Elmira 13 Watertown 3

Elmira used a seven-run sixth inning to break the game open, defeating host Watertown by a score of 13-3. Zach Pidgeon picked up the win for the Pioneers, while Mitch Sewald took the loss for the Rams.

Elmira led 5-2 going into the sixth inning but extended their lead to 12-2 with the help of timely hitting and Ram miscues. Christian Santiseban doubled home two runs in the inning and Drew Fisher also singled home two runs in the sixth.

TJ Dixon led the Pioneer attack, finishing 3-for-5 with a double, 2 RBI and a hit-by–pitch. Santiseban ended the night 2-for-4 with 3 RBI and a walk.

Despite not qualifying for the win, Elmira starter Roberto Suppa was dominant, tossing four innings without allowing a hit or an earned run.

Watertown catcher Jason Scholl went 2-for-3 with a double. Robbie Allesandrine and Charles Leblanc combined with Lopez to drive in the three Ram runs.

Watertown drops its first two games of the season for the second year in a row. 

Mohawk Valley 3 Utica 2

Mohawk Valley (1-1) was the lone team in the PGCBL to get a win at home on Thursday night. The DiamondDawgs held off the Utica Brewers (0-1) to win 3-2 in Little Falls.

Zach Collett got the DiamondDawgs’ offense started in the second inning with a solo home run. After scoring a lone run in the fourth to take a 2-0 lead, Utica cut the lead in half on a Hayden Kelly solo home run.

Mohawk Valley extended its lead to 3-1 in the home half of the seventh before Utica cut it to one in the top of the eighth. Matt Pidich came on in the ninth inning and retired the Utica lineup in order to pick up his first save of the season.

Mohawk Valley starter Evan Davis went five innings allowing one run as he picked up the win. Lucas Godlewski came on in relief and tossed three innings of one run ball.

Utica starter Patrick Boyle also went five innings allowing two runs, only one earned, but picked up the loss.

Hayden Kelly finished the night 3-for-4 for the Brewers while no other player recorded multiple hits.

Now let’s preview tonight’s games:

Utica at Glens Falls 7:00 p.m.

Utica looks to pick up their first win of the season after losing its opener to the hands of the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs. The Brewers travel to Glens Falls where they will take on the Golden Eagles who are looking to stay hot after defeating Adirondack 10-3 a night ago. John Leiter is expected to take the mound for Glens Falls. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

Amsterdam at Elmira 7:05 p.m.

In a rematch of the 2013 PGCBL Championship Series, the Amsterdam Mohawks and Elmira Pioneers will clash in Elmira. Amsterdam won the series last year in three games but lost game two in Elmira. Elmira is coming off a 13-3 win over the Watertown Rams, while Amsterdam looks to get in the win column for the 2014 season after losing to Newark on Thursday night. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

Newark at Albany 7:05 p.m.

Albany will host Newark after having Thursday night off. For Newark, this will be its third consecutive road game and the Pilots don’t open at Colburn Park until the 13th. Newark is 2-0 on the young season, the only team in the league who can say that. Spencer Hotaling is set to take the mound for the Dutchmen on Friday night as the Dutchmen look to pick up their second win of the season. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

Adirondack at Watertown 8:00 p.m.
