League Leaders 

This section will normally include the leaders of each statistical category but given there’s only been three days of games, the league leaders will be a part of the Rundown in a few days. 

Last Night’s Games:

Adirondack 6 Mohawk Valley 5

It took 11 innings and a ninth inning comeback, but the Adirondack Trail Blazers won their first game of the season with a 6-5 triumph over Mohawk Valley.

Down by one in the bottom of the ninth, an error with two outs brought the tying run home for Adirondack and sent the game to extras. After two innings of scoreless extra innings, Brandon Orbe hit an RBI single, scoring Mike Manoogian, to give the Trail Blazers the win.

Both teams had a three-run inning, with Mohawk Valley’s coming in the fifth and Adirondack’s coming in the seventh. Mike Martinez finished with two hits and an RBI for the DiamondDawgs while Lorenzo Calderon had three hits and a walk for the home team.

Pat Geraghty picked up the win for Adirondack and Jon Snell took the loss.

Oneonta 5 Albany 4

In a battle of the undefeated, Oneonta came back to beat the Albany Dutchmen, 5-6, in Albany.

The Outlaws took an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning as Quin Cotton hit a two-run home run. An RBI groundout extended the lead to 3-0 in the third before Albany put up a four spot to take the lead. The four-run inning was highlighted by a Justin Childers two-RBI single.

Oneonta tied the game in the fifth on a Cotton sacrifice fly and took the lead for good in the seventh on another Cotton sacrifice fly.

Antonio Baglivo tossed three shutout innings of relief for Oneonta to earn the win while Joe Pokrentowski gave up the go-ahead run to take the loss for Albany. 

Glens Falls 4 Amsterdam 3

The Glens Falls Dragons rallied in the bottom of the ninth to walk off against the Amsterdam Mohawks, sending the Mohawks to 0-3 on the season.

With two outs and trailing by a run in the home half of the ninth, Brian Greenwood hit an RBI single to tie the game. A batter later, Robbie Knightes plated Trevor Smeeton with an RBI single of his own to give Glens Falls its first win of the game.

The Dragons scored a run in the bottom of the eighth to pull within a run after Amsterdam took a 3-1 lead in the top of the inning.

Franklin Miller earned the win for Glens Falls while Chase Haney gave up the final three Glens Falls runs take the loss for Amsterdam.

Utica 7 Elmira 0

Three pitchers combined on a shutout and the Utica Blue Sox used an early lead to beat the Elmira Pioneers at Donovan Stadium.

The Blue Sox scored two runs in the first to take the lead and never looked back, adding three in the third and lone runs in the sixth and seventh to account for their seven runs. Joe Spitaleri had three hits and three RBIs for the Blue Sox to lead the offense.

On the mound, Brian Kavanagh led a three-man pitching attack that tossed the shutout. Kavanagh struck out four in six innings of work. For Elmira, Ethan Daily took the loss.

Newark 8 Geneva 2

The Newark Pilots moved to 3-0 on the season with a commanding 8-2 win over the Geneva Red Wings at Colburn Park.

The Pilots jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the first on a Jordan Swiss two-run single. A bases loaded walk in the second and an Acy Owen RBI single in the third doubled the lead. Max Goione hit an RBI double in the fourth to get a run back for the Red Wings and Alex Gionis hit an RBI single in the fifth to score what turned out to be Geneva’s final run of the game.

Owen hit an RBI triple in the home half of the fifth for Newark and drove in his third run of the game in the seventh with an RBI single. An error and a Chris Sharpe RBI triple made it an 8-2 game, what ended up being the final score.

Ryan Wesson allowed two runs over seven innings with six strikeouts to earn the win. Joseph Polanski took the loss for Geneva.

Victor 5 Jamestown 2

The Victor RailRiders got out to an early lead and didn’t look back as they went on to beat the Jamestown Jammers, 5-2.

An RBI groundout and an RBI single scored the first two runs of the game for Victor in the top of the first inning and a sacrifice fly in the third extended the lead to 3-0. Dale Wickham hit a solo home run in the fifth for the visitors before Jamestown scored its first run of the game in the sixth on a fielder’s choice. A wild pitch in the seventh brought home Jamestown’s final run of the game while Victor added an insurance run in the ninth to conclude the scoring.
