ALBANY, N.Y. – Stallions were able to score eight runs on thirteen hits to keep a late-game rally from the Dutchmen at bay.
A combined twelve hits and seven RBIs from the Stallions’ top seven hitters in the order propelled the offense over the Dutchmen.
Stallion centerfielder Jahlani Rogers had his best night of the season at the plate recording three hits scoring two runs and batting in another two with a stolen base to his credit. Rogers would be named player of the game.
Easton Bertrand went 3-4 with one RBI and an incredible throw home to put out a potential run at home. Bertrand would eventually exit the game after a hit-by-pitch in the ninth inning that caught his helmet. Although he was able to exit the field under his own power, his status going forward is unclear.
The Dutchmen would threaten late with a five-run seventh inning on three hits that would knot things back up at seven apiece.
Praxie Vigil was called upon in a big spot in the 8th inning. With bases loaded nobody out, Vigil retired six straight Dutchmen earning the two-inning save. He ended his night with one walk and two strikeouts. Drake Quinn would earn the win for the Stallions.
The Stallions head back on the road to take on the Glens Falls Dragons at 7:00 PM.
You can watch the game live on the Saugerties Stallions YouTube Channel from the Ulster Savings Broadcast Booth.
