The season is coming to its climax, and the league boasts nine matchups tonight. Included in these, David Silva Jr broke the league stolen bases record.

Glens Falls Dragons 3, Saugerties Stallions 9 (Game One)

Saugerties went ahead early, leading by five after three innings. Danny Moshier (Marist) was on the mound for the first four, with Sean Butkowski (Millersville) picking up the other run. Saugerties starter Tyler Kennedy (Pittsburgh) and James Reilly held the Dragons to three hits, but Glens Falls got to the Stallions in the sixth inning, where Moshier and Kyle Zaslaw (Union) drove in runs. The Stallions responded with four runs, including a two-run single by Garrison Berkley (TCU). Berkley and Garrett Michel (Virginia Tech) drove in two runs for Saugerties. Reilly received the win for his two innings.

Glens Falls Dragons 1, Saugerties Stallions 12 (Game Two)

Glens Falls started on the right foot, driving in a run on a Cory Listing (Coker) single. This momentum didn’t last long as Saugerties got six runs off of Listing, chasing him after two innings. Three of the runs came off a bases-clearing triple by Max Cotier (Virginia). Cotier went two for three and scored twice himself. Saugerties then scored six more runs in the third and fourth, pushing themselves to a mercy rule victory. Brandon Fish (UMass-Lowell) drove in three runs during the game, tying Cotier for the lead in that category. The win went to Bryce Reimer (Bucknell), who pitched four innings, allowed one earned run, and struck out six.

Albany Dutchmen 0, Oneonta Outlaws 1 (Game One)

This pitchers duel in Oneonta left us with a scoreless tie until the seventh inning. With Paul Tammaro (Connecticut) on base, Evan Keegan (Castleton) hit an RBI double, walking the game off in Oneonta’s favor. The win went to Matthew DuBois (St Peters). DuBois allowed nine Dutchmen to reach base but none to score over seven innings. Danny Kelleher (Hofstra) took the loss despite allowing one run in more than six innings. Kelleher also had six strikeouts, two were cleanup hitter Carter Dorighi (Lafayette)

Albany Dutchmen 9, Oneonta Outlaws 4 (Game Two)

Albany responded to the loss in a big way, scoring four runs in the opening frame. The Outlaws got one run back off of JT Larson (North Florida) before Albany hung five runs on them in the fifth and sixth innings. At that point, three late runs by Oneonta could not stop the doubleheader from being split. Larson received the win while Logan Kaufman (Herkimer CC) took the loss for the Outlaws. He allowed six hits, and four earned runs during his outing. Anthony Raimo Jr (Rhode Island) came up big for Albany on offense, providing two hits and driving in three runs. Oneonta got a boost from Trey Miller (Carson Newman), who drove in two runs. Also, in this game, David Silva Jr (Ohio Dominican) stole four bases. His league-leading 43 stolen bases are now the league’s single-season record.

Watertown Rapids 10, Boonville Baseball Club 11

Watertown carried a comfortable lead through most of the game, leading by five through seven innings. The first four runs came across during Derek Sotolongo’s three-inning start. Brandon Millan (Ave Maria) was responsible for the next five. Watertown was unable to satisfy their needs late, scoring one run in the eighth inning scored by Clay Grady (Virginia Tech). Boonville fired back with four runs in the bottom of the eighth and then another three in the ninth to win the game. The walk-off hit was a single by Jacob Bonzon.

Utica Blue Sox 2, Amsterdam Mohawks 11

Amsterdam returned home and broke out to a five-run lead before Utica got on the board in the fourth. Amsterdam negated that run and added three more in the following inning. This was the beginning of a 5-1 scoring run that secured the Mohawks’ victory. After Carson Cotugno (Wake Forest) pitched five innings with one run allowed, he received the win, his second of the year. After this result, his ERA drops to 4.79. Seven runs came across while Brandon Peterson (NJIT) was on the mound for Utica, so he took the loss. Amsterdam’s attack was led by Briggs Rutter (Middle Tennessee State), who went four for four with four RBIs.

Elmira Pioneers 8, Geneva Red Wings 7

Geneva took the early advantage, starting with an RBI double by Nick Serce (Alfred State). After Elmira scored in the second, the Red Wings built out a four-run advantage. This advantage disappeared in the sixth inning when Elmira posted four runs, capped by an RBI double by Kyle Chmielewski (Lafayette). The Pioneers then pulled ahead when Max Mandler (Seton Hall) hit a sacrifice fly ahead of Joe Muzio’s (Eckerd) two-run home run. Joe Olsavsky (John Carroll) received the win, allowing five earned runs over six innings. Frank Wayman’s (UMass-Lowell) contribution was key to the comeback of Elmira. Wayman reached base on four occasions and scored three times.

Jamestown Tarp Skunks 0, Newark Pilots 10

Newark took command early, scoring six runs over their first two innings. This run gave the Pilots the platform to use modest gains in the third, fourth, and sixth to gain a massive advantage. Justin Santos (Redlands CC) received the win for his seven innings of three-hit ball. Their offense saw boosts from Greg Kopp (Hamilton) and Gage Boatman (East Central), who drove in four runs. Kopp also added three hits to their stat line. On the other side, Ian Korn (Seton Hall) was on the mound for Newark’s first eight runs, so he took Jamestown’s loss.

Auburn DoubleDays 3, Batavia Muckdogs 6

Batavia took their first lead on a Kenny Dodson Jr (Canisius) sacrifice fly before RBI extra-base hits by Tanner Kim (Kentucky) and Garrett Prosper (Pitt-Johnstown) flipped the advantage. Batavia took their final lead in the seventh, where tied at three, Kyle Corso (Columbia) hit the go-ahead sacrifice fly. This lead was extended in the eighth and led to the Muckdogs’ 29th win. Trey Bacon (St Petersburg) received the win for three scoreless innings of relief, where he added six strikeouts. Dodson and Abner Benitez (Wallace State CC) drove in two runs for the Muckdogs.
