Four of the games in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Thursday, June 8, were decided by three runs or less, and two of those ended in walk-off fashion. 

Here’s a look back at the scores from June 8:

Jamestown (4-2) 8, Newark (1-4) 0
The Jammers blanked the Pilots and picked up their second win in as many days against their West Division foe. Jamestown starter Bradley Griggs (UTSA) twirled a gem en route to the “W” on the mound, as he scattered four runs and one walk across 7.0 shutout innings. He also fanned a game-high seven batters. Griggs was provided plenty of offensive support as well, as the Jammers tallied three runs in the third inning, three more in the fifth, and two in the eighth. Chris Estrada (UTSA) and John Conti (Canisius) each picked up an RBI with a base hit in the fifth inning, with Connor Rule (Niagara County C.C.) adding a sac fly in between. Estrada finished 2-for-4 with a game-high three RBIs and Skyler Valentine (UTSA) was a perfect 3-for-3 to pace the Jamestown offense.

Adirondack (3-3) 3, Albany (1-2) 1
The Dutchmen looked to secure a victory on their home field after entering the ninth inning with a game’s only run. Nick Gallo (Oklahoma State) scored that run in the third inning after leading off the frame with a base hit, stealing second, and scoring from third on an RBI ground out by Peyton Stockwell (North Alabama). That 1-0 lead was safe for the next five innings, but the Trail Blazers completed the comeback with a trio of runs in the ninth. Dan Abate (Monmouth) tied the game with a one-out RBI single that plated Joseph Simone (Rider), which prompted Albany to intentionally walk Lou Matarazzo (Iona) to load the bases with hopes of forcing an inning-ending double-play. However, returning Trail Blazer Chuck Hooker (Alderson Broadus) followed with a two-run single that turned the 1-1 stalemate into a 3-1 score in favor of the visitors. Matt Valin (Onondaga C.C.) then finished the game by striking out the side in the bottom of the ninth to receive the victory on the mound.

Amsterdam (3-1) 6, Geneva (3-2) 5
The Red Wings gave the defending league champions a run for their money on Thursday night at Shuttleworth Park. Geneva led by as many as two runs on two different occasions, including the first inning following a two-run homer off the bat of Jake Lyle (Volunteer State C.C.). The Mohawks responded to knot the score at 2-all in the home half of the second on RBI singles from Alex Kashgarian (Hudson Valley C.C.) and Julian Gallup (Niagara). The two teams traded runs through the sixth inning. The Red Wings pulled back ahead, 5-4, with an RBI double from Trustin Riley (Tampa) in the top of the sixth, but once again Amsterdam leveled the score on another Gallup RBI base knock. The hosts would walk off in the bottom of the ninth after loading the bases and plating the game-winning run on Brendan Coffey’s (Sacred Heart) single. Nick DeBrino (Canisius) picked up the win for the Mohawks with 2.0 hitless innings of relief and a pair of strikeouts.

Saugerties (2-2) 10, Utica (3-2) 7
The Stallions overcame a 7-4 Utica lead in the sixth inning by scoring a combined six runs in the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings. In the home half of the sixth, Saugerties knotted the score at 7-7 on an Andrew Taft (Buffalo) two-run double, and in the following inning, it took an 8-7 lead on a Nick Campana (Hartford) RBI triple. With the slim lead in hand, relievers John Clayton (Albany), Mark Meyer (Marshall) and Kelly Killeen (Franklin Pierce) combined to throw 3.0 scoreless innings without surrendering a hit and striking out four. Utica was led offensively by the duo of Taylor Olmstead (Southern New Hampshire) and Zane Harris (Wright State), who each finished with two hits and two RBIs. The Stallions received tremendous efforts from Jack Gonzalez (Stetson), who was a perfect 4-for-4 with four runs scored, and Taft, who finished 3-for-5 with a game-high three RBIs.

Glens Falls (2-2) 5, Oneonta (0-5) 4 (11 innings)
The Outlaws were one out away from securing their first victory of the 2017 summer season , but the Dragons responded with two runs in the bottom of the 11th to steal the win. After playing to a 3-3 draw in regulation, Oneonta’s Ian Fair (Northeastern) led off the 11th with full-count walk and pinch runner Dorien Jenkins (Wofford) came around to score the go-ahead run from second base on a Marcus White (Virginia Tech) two-bagger. Outlaw reliever Nathan Wrighter (Bryant) then got the first two outs in the bottom of the inning with a fly out to center and a ground out to third, but back-to-back singles and a walk loaded the bases for the Dragons. The tying run was forced in from third on Wrighter’s second walk of the inning and Dan Lowndes (Siena) provided the game-winning single to secure the win.

Elmira (4-2) 9, Onondaga (2-3) 3
Despite outhitting Elmira 11-to-7, Onondaga came up on the losing end of a 9-3 decision at historic Dunn Field on Thursday night. A five-run third inning helped propel the Pioneers to the victory. Four of the five runs in the frame were scored on a pair of Onondaga errors, with the other coming home on a Brett Vosik (Kansas) RBI single. In the top of the sixth inning, the Flames cut a 6-0 deficit in half by scoring three runs of their own, two of which were plated on Gage Lanning’s (Canisius) two-run single, but Elmira maintained a comfortable distance by adding two runs in the bottom of the sixth. Earning the win on the mound was Jake Hamilton (Kentucky), who gave up three runs and struck out five in 6.0 innings of work. Allbry Major (Xavier) capped off the contest with 2.0 scoreless innings and three strikeouts for the Pios.
