Entering tonight’s matchups, the Amsterdam Mohawks had an opportunity to set the league record win streak at 15 games. They fell short, tying with Saugerties in one of our seven matchups.

Geneva Red Wings 9, Niagara Power 14

Geneva was the better side in the early portion of the game, outscoring Niagara 5-4 through the first two innings. Three of the five came on a Charlie Furlong (Colby) double, which cleared the juiced bases. From this point, the Power posted three innings with a crooked number, taking command of the game on Andrew Fairbrother’s (NCCC) fourth-inning two-run single. Fairbrother, Blaise Kolbert (D’Youville), and David Coleman (High Point) contributed two-run hits, extending the lead. Fairbrother was the team’s most productive hitter, getting three hits and four RBIs. Cole Murray received the win for his relief performance for Bryan Aduddle (Canisius). Aduddle allowed five earned runs during his outing.

Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs 9, Boonville Baseball Club 8

Boonville scored early, taking the lead in a three-run second inning. Mohawk Valley cut the deficit to one run in the third and then unloaded six runs in the fourth. Noah Lucifer (Stonehill) contributed a run-scoring double to this attack. The DiamondDawgs scored another in the seventh inning, putting Boonville in a bind. After scoring in the fourth and seventh, Boonville found themselves down one in the ninth inning. AJ Pabst reached base with a double, but they could not score him or avoid defeat. Lucifer and Ethan Valdez (Wagner) crossed the plate twice in the Mohawk Valley victory.

Saugerties Stallions 6, Amsterdam Mohawks 6

Amsterdam scored first, tallying three runs in the first inning. One of these runs came on an Ian Perutz (Maryland) home run, his third of the season. Saugerties cut the deficit to one before the Mohawks added two more runs in the fourth inning. In the top of the fifth, Kip Fougerousse (Indiana) belted a three-run home run, tying the game. This was Fougerousse’s first home run of the season. The game went to the tenth inning, where Jake Skrine (Indiana) scored, giving the Stallions the advantage. Paul Winland (Florida SouthWestern) scored in the bottom of the inning, maintaining the tie. The game ended in a tie after ten innings. James Reilly pitched the last five innings for Saugerties, allowing just one run.

Auburn DoubleDays 2, Utica Blue Sox 3

Utica took the lead in the third inning when Chris Fernandez (Felician) scored Troy Hamilton (USC Upstate) on a sacrifice fly. Will King (Eastern Kentucky) hit a two-run double later in the inning, extending the lead. The DoubleDays first cut into Blue Sox’s lead in the fifth when Andrew Tan (Binghamton) drove in Luke Hanson (Virginia). Kobe Stenson (Siena) scored off of a wild pitch in the ninth inning, but Bryce Brownlee (Army West Point) completed the save, drowning the DoubleDays comeback hopes. Evan Esch (St. Thomas) got the win for his five-inning performance allowing three hits. After allowing the runs in the third inning, Eddie Rives (Ithaca) pitched two more shutout innings and received the loss.

Oneonta Outlaws 10, Glens Falls Dragons 7

After Oneonta scored the first two runs, Glens Falls fired back with a quick three runs. In the third, the Outlaws regained the lead by capitalizing on Cory Listing’s (Coker) error. Glens Falls tied things up in the sixth and again in the ninth inning after Oneonta added two runs. Phillip Krypata (St. Joseph’s) drove in the run, which sent the game to extra innings. Mario Disso (Pittsburgh) drove in the game-winner during the tenth inning, the first of four runs. Evan Keegan (Castleton) drove in two of those runs on a single. Keegan and Disso had multiple RBIs on the night.

Newark Pilots 10, Elmira Pioneers 11

Elmira took advantage of consecutive innings with four runs to fortify their lead. Aiden Blake (UMass-Boston) and Gil Merod (Ithaca) each added two-run hits in this Pioneers’ scoring run. Blake finished the game with four doubles and four RBIs. Now leading 9-5, Elmira withstood sustained pressure until an eighth-inning single by Michael Doyle (NJIT) gave Newark a late lead. The Pioneers tied the game in the ninth, and then Blake’s final double won the game in the 10th inning. Joe Olsavsky (John Carroll) received the win. Olsavsky’s three-inning of relief performance was the only outing of that length that held their opponent to less than three runs.

Jamestown Tarp Skunks 1, Batavia Muckdogs 2

Jamestown scored first, utilizing an error by Brian Fry (Toledo). Batavia tied the game up an inning later. The gridlock held until the ninth inning. In the ninth, Eddie Galatas (North Georgia) relieved Ryan Rafalski (Mercyhurst) after he allowed one hit in the last two innings. Galatas loaded the bases with a Daniel Burroway (Alvin CC) single and two walks. Jerry Reinhart (Akron) drew a third walk from Galatas to score the walk-off run.
