The Dutchmen scored the first runs of the game in the third inning on a bases loaded walk and a sacrifice fly. Each team scored two runs in the fourth inning and after Albany plated a lone run in the fifth, Saugerties scored three in the sixth on a Vince Lakes two-run double and a Caleb Kerbs RBI single. Saugerties played lone runs in the eighth and ninth but a two-run lead wasn’t enough. In the bottom of the ninth, Jack Gethings hit a two-run single to tie the game and Jon Skidmore hit a walkoff single.

Jack Grabek got the win for Albany while Mike Davis took the loss for Saugerties.

Glens Falls 3 Amsterdam 2

The Glens Falls Dragons held on to an early lead to beat the Amsterdam Mohawks, 3-2, at East Field.

The Dragons took a 2-0 lead in the third inning on a Brian Uliana two-run single. A sacrifice fly in the fifth extended the lead to 3-0. After two runs scored on an Eric Downey single in the sixth for Amsterdam, the Dragons were able to hold off the Mohawks and get the win.

Drew Marino struck out eight over 5.1 innings to earn the win as Matt Stojkov notched the save. Paul Milto took the loss for Amsterdam. 

Elmira 6 Geneva 5 

It took 10 innings but the Elmira Pioneers walked off against the Geneva Red Wings, 6-5, at Dunn Field.

After the Pioneers blew a 5-1 lead in the ninth inning, an error scored the walkoff run in the 10th. Geneva scored the game’s first run in the third but Elmira quickly responded with a three spot in the fourth on a Brian Kelly three-run triple. The Pioneers extended the lead in the fifth on a groundout and Kelly hit an RBI single in the seventh to make it 5-1. But in the top of the ninth, Geneva rallied for four runs to tie the game.

Cody Thompson picked up the win for Elmira while Patrick Connor took the loss for Geneva.

Newark 4 Mohawk Valley 3

The Newark Pilots broke a 3-3 tie in the eighth inning to beat the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs, 4-3, in a matchup of postseason teams in Little Falls.

Newark scored the game’s first two runs in the third inning on a Sam Fragale RBI single and a sacrifice fly. Mohawk Valley scored its first run in the fifth on a Michael Ketchmark RBI single but the Pilots got it back in the sixth on a Chase Cockrell solo home run. After an Andrew Turner two-run single in the seventh tied the game at three, Cockrell hit a sacrifice fly to break the tie in the eighth inning.

Loukas Bechakas picked up the win for Newark as Brian Dolan notched the save. Spencer Bunting took the loss for Mohawk Valley.

Utica 4 Victor 3

The Utica Blue Sox scored two runs in the first inning and didn’t look back as they beat the Victor RailRiders, 4-3, on the road.

In the first, Mitchell Calandra hit an RBI single and a groundout scored a run. A Keyshawn D’Orso solo home run in the second made it a one-run game but in the fifth, Calandra hit an RBI single and Justin Gegers extended the lead to 4-1 with an RBI single of his own. Victor scored two more in the home half but it wasn’t enough as Utica held on for the win.

Gus Varland picked up the win for Utica while Brian Reed took the loss for Victor.
