Golden Eagles Fall In Ninth

Glens Falls, NY – On a warm summer night at East Field, Newark scored three runs in the ninth inning to overcome a Glens Falls 6-4 lead to earn the Pilot’s fifth victory of the season while giving the Golden Eagles their first loss at home on the season.

Newark took an early lead to begin the game in the first as Kyle Attl grounded out scoring Mike Bolling who reached on a walk off Golden Eagles starter Dylan Baker.

The Golden Eagles would respond in the second as Kevin Alexander (Dallas Baptist) hit a two-run homerun off Pilot starter Edwin Reyes (UAB) giving Glens Falls a 2-1 lead.

Newark would then score three runs over the fourth and fifth innings with RBIs from Randy Villa (San Joaquin Delta) (2) and Adam Grace (Genesee CC).

Entering the seventh inning, Newark held a 4-2 lead until Glens Falls erupted for four runs in the seventh. Ricky Claudio and Josh Anderson reached on walks while David Olson was hit by a pitch to load the bases for Glens Falls. A passed ball from Pilot pitcher Alec Clifton (Lindenwood) cut the lead to 4-3. Zac Hawkins then proceeded to hit a two RBI double to give the Golden Eagles the lead at 5-4. Glens Falls scored its final run of the evening on a run-scoring single from Kyle Ruchim (Northwestern).

Winning the game in the top of the ninth, Newark got things going with one out when leadoff batter Michael Bolling (Lewis) hit a single, which was quickly followed by Delvalle’s (Kentucky Western) moved him to third with a triple. A walk to Attl (Cal State Northridge) loaded the bases and Randy Villa (San Joaquin Delta) hit a single and would later score on a single from Luke Swenson (UC Santa Barbara) to take the lead 7-6.

Pilot’s pitcher, Kegan Banks (Blinn) a sophomore, came on to pitch the ninth inning with a one run lead. Other than a hit by pitch from the eighth hitter Kyle Ruchim (Northwestern), nothing got started for the Golden Eagles in the bottom of the ninth.

The game concluded after 3 hours of baseball. The winning pitcher is Kegan Banks from Blinn, who moves to 1-0 on the season. Ricky Claudio (St. Thomas) receives the loss and moves to 0-1 on the year, due to his blown save. The Eagles fall to 10-3 on the year while the Newark Pilots improve to 6-6 tonight at East Field, in Glens Falls, NY.
