Filed by the Newark Pilots...

NEWARK, N.Y. (July 27th, 2013) -- Chad Adams (Saint Rose) set a franchise record with six RBI and Drew Hasler (Valparaiso) fired six shutout innings as the Newark Pilots (19-24) defeated the Elmira Pioneers (21-21), 10-4, on a rainy Saturday night at Colburn Park. With the win, the Pilots lowered their magic number for clinching a playoff spot to one. One win or one Utica loss will guarantee  the Pilots a trip to the PGCBL playoffs for the third year in a row.

A four-run fourth put the Pilots up early and they would never relinquish the lead. With bases loaded, Josh Ludwig (University of Rochester) smacked a three-RBI triple into center to put the Pilots up, 3-0. Chad Adams (Saint Rose) pushed the Pilots out to a 4-0 edge with a ground out to the right side that scored Josh Ludwig For Adams, it was his first RBI of a franchise-record six on the night.

The Pilots loaded the bases again in the sixth inning against Elmira reliever Jim Tunison (Misericordia). Chad Adams cleared the bases with a three-RBI triple into right-center field to balloon Newark's lead up to 7-0.

The Pioneers came to life in the seventh with three runs on four hits. Matthew Pelt (Wofford) had a two-run double and then later scored on a Chris Kalousdian (Manhattan) single to right field. 

Newark pulled away with two runs in the seventh and one in the eighth. Adams ripped his second hit of the soggy Saturday night in the seventh, a two-run single to center field that scored Samm Wiggins (Houston Baptist) and Max Rosing. Taylor Hinshaw (Georgia College) capped off Newark's offensive output in the eighth with a two-out RBI double.

Steve Laurino, Samm Wiggins, Max Rosing and Chad Adams all had two hits apiece and Rosing scored a game-high three runs. Ludwig had three RBI.

Chris Kalousdian was the only Pioneer batter with multiple hits, he finished 2-for-5 with one RBI. 

Newark's Drew Hasler (3-3, Valparaiso) received more than enough run support as he pitched a gem. He threw seven full innings and allowed three runs on six hits and struck out five. Hasler pitched a shutout through the first six innings. 

Elmira's Chris Gould (2-3, Saint Rose) took the loss, allowing four runs on six hits over five innings.

Newark has a day off Sunday before hosting the Glens Falls Golden Eagles in a doubleheader on Monday night at Colburn Park. First pitch on Monday, July 29th is 5:05 p.m. Elmira travels to Utica's Donovan Stadium on Sunday for a doubleheader with the Utica Brewers.
