Dutchmen Defeated in Heartbreaking Fashion by Mohawks

The Albany Dutchmen (4-6) were defeated by the Amsterdam Mohawks (5-7) on Sunday night at Bob Bellizzi Field, 5-4. It was the Dutchmen’s first game in nearly a week after four straight rainouts and a battle until the final out.

Shortstop Brandon Trinkwon (UC Santa Barbara) got the Dutchmen off to a quick start with a leadoff triple to open the game. Andrew Deeds (Morehead State) drove in Trinkwon scorching an RBI single to put Albany up 1-0. The trend between Deeds and Trinkwon continued an inning later as Deeds drove
in Trinkwon off a sac fly to make it 2-0.

Dutchmen starting pitcher Chase Tokunaga (Feather River CC) looked strong for Albany throughout the evening. The lefty went five innings racking up five strikeouts on six hits and two earned runs. Tokunaga's only real trouble came in the second inning when he loaded the bases with no outs. Tokunaga managed to scrape out of the inning allowing his only two runs of the outing. 

Dutchmen outfielder Paul Bello (Georgetown University) brought home a run in the third to once again give Albany the lead at 3-2, however it would not hold.  Amsterdam rallied for three runs in the seventh on their way to a 5-3 cushion. Matt Mack (Radford) was the highlight of the inning, hitting and RBI single and also scoring off a Dutchmen throwing error.

An RBI single by Taylor Drake (McNeese State) closed the gap to 5-4 to keep Albany within striking distance. Drake advanced on a passed ball in the inning, but was left standing on second. In front of a near full crowd on Pine Bush Little League Night, the Dutchmen had men on first and third with only one out in the ninth. With Deeds inching down the line at third, Albany had two straight batters go down to end the game.

Albany put together 13 hits in the defeat including three from Anthony Turgeon (Central Connecticut State) and two each from Trinkwon, Drake and Bello. Siena and Dutchmen reliever C.J. Sohl pitched 2.2 scoreless innings. Derrick Brewer came down with the win for Amsterdam and Abram Williams recorded the save. Bret Gallihugh was tagged with the loss.

The Dutchmen will hit the road tomorrow for the first of three straight games against the Watertown Wizards. Game time is 7 p.m. For all Dutchmen information visit or follow the team on Twitter @DutchmenPGCBL.
