Last Night’s Games:

Victor 8 Adirondack 3

The Victor RailRiders scored seven runs in the middle innings to beat the Adirondack Trail Blazers, 8-3, in Boonville.

A Stephen DiNicolia RBI triple in the third gave the Pilots a 1-0 lead before Kenny Collins hit an RBI double in the home half to tie the game. DiNicolia hit a two-run home run in the fifth to re-take the lead and Adirondack answered with a lone run. In the sixth, an error and a DiNicolia RBI single extended the lead to 6-2 and the RailRiders scored two more in the seventh to seal the win.

Colin Johnston allowed two runs over eight innings to pick up the win for Victor. Aaron Hedgecock took the loss for Adirondack.

Albany 4 Saugerties 0

Two Albany pitchers combined on a three-hit shutout, beating the Saugerties Stallions, 4-0, at Cantine Field.

Cooper Jones tossed the first five innings of the game, giving up one hit while striking out five in eventually earning the win. Jeff Rivera came on and finished the game, allowing two hits in the process, as he notched the save.

The Dutchmen scored the game’s first run in the third inning and added two more in the fourth to make it 3-0. A lone run in the fifth concluded the scoring.

Nate Popiel took the loss for Saugerties as he allowed all four runs.

Utica 7 Amsterdam 4

In a battle of first place teams, the Utica Blue Sox prevailed, coming back to beat the Amsterdam Mohawks, 7-4, at Donovan Stadium.

Amsterdam took a 2-0 lead in the second inning and extended the lead to 3-0 in the fifth on a sacrifice fly. In the home half, though, Utica scored two on a Joe Spitaleri RBI single and a Kyle Winkler RBI single to make it 3-2. After Amsterdam scored a lone run in the seventh on a wild pitch, the Blue Sox rallied for five runs, including two on a Mitchell Clandra triple to take the lead for good. 

Ryan Green tossed 2.1 innings of scoreless relief in earning the win as David Peljovich gave up the five runs in taking the loss.

Elmira 3 Jamestown 2

The Elmira Pioneers came back on the road Tuesday, beating the Jamestown Jammers, 3-2.

After Elmira scored the game’s first run in the first on a bases loaded walk, the Jammers took the lead as league-leading RBI man Ben Brookover hit a two-run single. But a Lucas Denney two-run double in the third inning ended up being enough for Elmira to complete the comeback.

Spencer Kulman gave up the two Jamestown runs over five innings to earn the win as Parker Caracci notched the save. Dylan King allowed the three Elmira runs in taking the loss.

Newark 4 Geneva 2

The Newark Pilots scored two runs in the seventh inning to break a 2-2 tie and beat the Geneva Red Wings, 4-2, at Colburn Park.

Geneva scored the game’s first runs in the second on a Jordan Wiley RBI single and a Sam Fuller RBI single. Newark tied the game in the home half on a Sam Fragale two-run home run. Chase Cockrell hit a two-run double in the seventh inning to break the tie and give the Pilots the home win.

Ryan Wesson allowed just the two runs over eight innings of work to get the win as Brian Dolan notched his league-leading seventh save. Andy Reed took the loss for Geneva.

Mohawk Valley 17 Oneonta 3

The Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs erupted for 17 runs on Tuesday, beating the Oneonta Outlaws, 17-3, in Little Falls.

The DiamondDawgs didn’t look back after Michael Ketchmark hit an RBI double in the first inning to start the scoring. A six-run second inning featured four different RBI hits and the runs just kept coming — one in the third, two in the fourth (as did Oneonta, three in the fifth and three in the sixth. Mohawk Valley scored its last run of the game in the eighth and Oneonta scored in the ninth but the game was far out of reach at that point.

Joe DeSarro struck out six in seven innings of two-run ball in earning the win for the DiamondDawgs as Tyler Brown took the loss for Oneonta.
