Last Night’s Game:
Adirondack 10 Utica: The Adirondack Trail Blazers scored two runs in the top of the eighth inning to defeat the Utica Brewers, 10-9, in Utica.
Utica scored the first run of the game in the bottom of the second on a Ryan Cox RBI triple that plated Dominick Bregar. Adirondack responded in the top of the third with a lone run coming across on a Kyle Walker sacrifice fly. In the home half of the inning, Taylor Olmstead hit his PGCBL-leading third home run of the season. The Brewers scored four more runs in the inning to make it a 6-1 game. Cox drove in two more with a single, Mason McClellan hit an RBI single and Dan Vucovich hit a sacrifice fly.
A bases loaded walk and a sacrifice fly got two runs back in the top of the fourth for Adirondack. Then in the sixth, Adirondack took an 8-6 lead with a five-run inning. Brad Jones hit an RBI double, an RBI groundout scored a run, Chris Kwitzer hit a two-RBI single and an error scored the final run of the inning.
Utica responded in the home half by re-taking the lead on an error and a Vincent Capone two-RBI single. An error in the top of the eighth, however, knotted the game at nine and later in the inning, a wild pitch scored what wound up being the winning run.
Joe King tossed an inning and a third of scoreless relief to pick up the win. Tom Fazzini earned the save. Alex Morrison allowed the final two Adirondack runs to take the loss.
