Elmira, NY- Tuesday night’s PGCBL matchup at historic Dunn Field in Elmira, NY showcased two first place teams in their respected conferences. Representing the east, the Glens Falls Golden Eagles rolled into town coming off of their loss against Newark on Monday (6/27) at East Field. As seen in the first matchup between these two talented teams, the game was intense as both clubs displayed their talents, yet a similar result as their June 14th game was seen in the end.
Starting for your Golden Eagles in last night’s matchup was Freshman pitcher Max MacNabb (San Diego) (1-2). The starter for Elmira was Cornell sophomore, Mike Kazley. MacNabb, faced eighteen batters over his three and a third on the bump. He only gave up two runs (both earned), walked three, and struck out five. Coming in to relieve MacNabb was Southern Maine hurler, Brennan Perry (2-0). Perry was great K’ing three of the seven batters faced in his inning and two thirds in relief. Brennan would eventually receive the win, but he was still not the only pitcher with a keen performance on the night. Both Chris Myers, a sophomore pitcher from Georgia Southern (1-0) who went three innings of three hit ball K’ing four, and Kyle Ruchim (Northwestern) also pitched excellent recording the three strikeouts necessary to lock up his third save of the 2011 season.
On the offensive, the Golden Eagles kept their red hot lumber in motion throughout the game racking up, once again double digit hits on the night (12). The offense was highlighted by a trio of Golden Eagles. St. Thomas outfielder/pitcher Ricky Claudio went two for four with a stolen base and two runs scored. LSU-Eunice freshman Zac Hawkins also had two hits (2 for 4), and Albany first basemen Mike Tirri went two-for- three with a single and a double.
The majority of the Golden Eagles runs came in the third inning when third basemen, Yavapai freshman, Josh Anderson took Kazley’s two- one offering over the fence for a three run shot.
The season continues later on today, Wednesday June 29th, as the Golden Eagles will wrap up their two game, two day series at the Elmira Pioneers.
