Last Night’s Games:
Glens Falls 10 Amsterdam 8: The Glens Falls Dragons gave the Amsterdam Mohawks only their second home loss on the season with a 10-8 win at Shuttleworth Park.
Hunter Tackett hit his fifth home run of the season, tying him for the league-lead, in the bottom of the first to give Amsterdam a 2-0 lead. A balk in the top of the fourth cut the lead to 2-1. Amsterdam got the run back in the fifth on a Drew Freedman sacrifice fly. Tackett drove in another run later in the inning with an RBI double to make it 4-1 Mohawks.
Glens Falls responded in the next half inning on a Jake Vieth RBI double. Tyler Phillips hit an RBI single later in the inning to make it a 4-3 game. The Dragons took their first lead of the game in the seventh with a four-run inning. Three more runs scored in the eighth to make it a 10-4 game. Amsterdam rallied for four runs in the bottom of the ninth on a Tyler Kirkpatrick RBI double, a Macy Holdsworth RBI single, an error and a Justin Yurchak RBI single. But it wasn’t enough as Glens Falls held on to earn the win and go above .500.
