Here’s a quick look back at all of the action from across the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Friday, June 10:

Jamestown (5-2) 7, Onondaga (2-4) 1
The Jammers scored four runs in the top of the first inning and starting pitcher David Lyskawa (Niagara County C.C.) tossed a gem to lead Jamestown to victory over the Flames at the Onondaga County College Baseball Complex. Alex O’Donnell’s (Mercyhurst) two-run double highlighted the opening frame and ensured the Jammers would never trail the Flames. Although a Gage Lanning (Canisius) RBI triple reduced the deficit down to 4-1 in the bottom of the first, it would be the only run allowed by Lyskawa in his 7.0 innings of work. He struck out nine without issuing a walk in his first summer start. Each of the top seven batters in the Jamestown lineup recorded a hit against the Flames, and six of those seven scored a run. Christ Conley (Canisius) was a perfect 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles and three walks, while batting in the three-hole.

Albany (2-2) 9, Utica (3-3) 3
The Blue Sox were the last remaining unbeaten team in the PGCBL at 3-0, but have since dropped three consecutive games, including Friday night’s contest against the Dutchmen at Siena Field. Albany scored three runs in the first, one in the third, two in the fourth, and one more in the fifth to pull ahead by a comfortable 7-1 margin. Chase Allen (Limestone) of Albany and Cole Pursell (Willamette) of Utica led all batters by each going 3-for-5, and Dutchmen Brandt Holland finished 2-for-4 with a game-high double and two RBIs. On the mound, Deavan Phillips (Ave Maria) earned the win with 2.1 hitless innings of relief, after starter Greg Marino (Stony Brooke) struck out four and allowed just one run in 4.2 innings. Utica starter Brendan McNernery (RPI) paced all pitchers with five punch outs, but was taxed for six runs in 4.0 innings in the losing effort.

Mohawk Valley (4-1) 12, Oneonta (0-6) 5
The DiamondDawgs exploded for 12 runs on 17 hits night against the winless Outlaws and reigning PGCBL Co-Pitcher of the Year Joe DeSarro (Southern New Hampshire) looked sharp again in his second start of the summer. DeSarro picked up the win after surrendering just one run on three hits and six strikeouts in 6.0 innings of work. Meanwhile, Mohawk Valley turned an early 1-0 deficit into an 11-1 advantage by scoring 11 unanswered runs between the second and fifth innings. In the six-run fifth inning, Tim Zeng (Fairfield) crushed a two-run home run and Matt Smith (Sacramento State) plated a pair with a two-run double. Although the Outlaws produced 10 hits themselves – Mike Brown (Dartmouth) was 3-for-5 and Stone Pellegrino (Wofford) finished 2-for-5 with a double – Oneonta’s batters struck out 13 times versus just two walks. The DiamondDawgs earned the big victory in front of a new franchse record of over 2,600 fans, who packed Veteran's Memorial Park on Friday night.

Saugerties (3-2) 4, Glens Falls (2-3) 3
The Stallions scored the game’s first four runs and held off a near Glens Falls comeback in the seventh to eke out a one-run win on the road. Saugerties starter Nick Massa (Manhattan) was nearly unhittable in his 6.0 innings, as he gave up just one hit and fanned seven. Meanwhile, Jack Gonzalez (Stetson) and John McKenna (Army West Point) provided a pair of RBI singles in the top of the seventh to extend the Stallions’ lead to 4-0. Saugerties reliever Ian Scheuer (Manhattan) struggled to make it through his only inning of work, as he allowed the Dragons to tally a trio of two-out runs on a Dalton Ney (Lee) RBI single, giving up a bases-loaded walk to Jared Drizin (Bucknell), and then plunking Brian Uliana (Rider) to force in another run. Down by one in the bottom of the ninth, Ney led off with a double but was unable to come around to score the tying run.

Adirondack (4-3) 8, Elmira (4-3) 5
For the second time this season, the Trail Blazers got the best of the Pioneers at the Robert Smith Sports Complex in Boonville, N.Y. On Friday, they overcame an early 4-1 deficit by scoring five runs in the bottom of the fourth inning. A bases-loaded walk and John Michael Boswell’s (Furman) bases-clearing three-run triple gave Adirondack its first lead of the game, and Matt Codispoti (Albany) followed with an RBI double to make it 6-4 Trail Blazers. Boswell’s RBI double in the sixth was one of two insurance runs tacked on by Adirondack. He finished the game 3-for-4 with two doubles and four RBIs. Zac Bygum (Dartmouth) and Zach Zientarski (Pittsburgh) preserved the lead, as both relievers tossed 2.0 innings, while the latter picked up the save. Elmira relief pitcher TJ Stuart (Manhattan) led all hurlers with five strikeouts in just 2.0 innings.

Geneva (4-2) 5, Newark (1-5) 1
Alex Bellardini (Youngstown State) was once again masterful in his second start of the summer season for the Red Wings, The 6-foot-4 righty followed up his 7.0 innings against Jamestown on June 3 with another strong 8.0 innings on Friday at McDonough Park. He did not allow a run while surrendering just two hits and striking out four, which reduced his ERA to a mere 0.60 through his first 15.0 innings. Bellardini was aided by a four-spot in the fourth inning, as Matt Collins (Cornell) picked up two RBIs with a double and Ben Terwillinger (Maine) plated two more runs with a single. In his first game of the season, international student-athlete Yohei Ishiyama (Nihon Univ.) batted atop the Geneva order on Friday and picked up his first hit, going 1-for-4 with a walk and one stolen base. Although the Pilots recorded one run in the top of the ninth, it would be the only offense they could muster while being limited to three hits on the night.
