Here’s a look back at the scores from around the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Sunday, June 11:

Geneva (6-2) 6, Onondaga (3-5) 4
The Red Wings continued their early-season run of success with a two-run win over the Flames at the Onondaga Community College Baseball Complex on Sunday. With the game knotted at 2-all, Geneva separated itself with a three-run seventh inning. Joseph Tassin (Bossier Parish C.C.) plated one of those runs with a double before scoring on a balk, which put the Red Wings up 5-2. Webb Little (Ithaca) tripled and scored in the bottom of the seventh and the Flames added another run in the eighth to trim the deficit to one, but a Jake Evans (Alabama Southern C.C.) sac fly added an insurance run in the top of the ninth. Slater O’Brien (Saint Joseph’s) had a strong start on the mound for Geneva with 5.0 shutout innings and seven strikeouts. Relievers Andy Reed (Elmira) and Colby Mullins (Andrew) received the win and save, respectfully.

Elmira (5-4) 11, Newark (1-7) 2
The Pioneers scored seven runs in the first three innings combined, including a five-run second, en route to a big win over their West Division rivals in Newark. Anthony Nucerino (UConn) slugged a two-run double and scored on Brett Rodriguez’s (Wofford) base hit in the following at-bat in Elmira’s decisive second inning. Nucerino was one of two Pios who finished with three hits on the evening, as both he and Allbry Major (Xavier) combined for six hits, five RBIs and four runs scored. On the mound, Houston Roth (Ole Miss) tossed five innings of one-hit ball with two strikeouts to pick up the win, while his counterpart Adam Klos (Viterbo) was taxed for seven runs (five earned) in a mere 2.2 innings for the Pilots.

Albany (4-2) 5, Adirondack (4-4) 4
The Trail Blazers nearly completed a late comeback with a pair of runs in the top of the eighth inning, but the Dutchmen prevailed on a walk-off wild pitch in the ninth. Down 4-2, Adirondack leveled the score on a Chuck Hooker (Alderson Broaddus) RBI single and Dugan Darnell (Adrian) sac fly in the eighth. Despite giving up a lead-off double to Albany’s Nick Gallo (Oklahoma State) in the ninth, the Trail Blazers nearly escaped a bases-loaded jam to force extra innings. Following an intentional walk, the visitors came up with a force out at home for the second out, but pitcher Matthew Valin (Onondaga C.C.) uncorked the wild pitch, allowing Brad Gneiting (Rice) to score the winning run. Matt Pierce (Siena) earned the win for the Dutchmen with 1.2 scoreless relief innings.

Jamestown (7-2) 13, Utica (3-5) 3
The West Division-leading Jammers continued to roll and the Blue Sox continued their skid, as Jamestown defeated Utica 13-3 at Donovan Stadium. The Blue Sox led 3-1 through the first five innings, but the Jammers tallied a combined 12 runs in the sixth, seventh and eighth. Collin Stack (UMBC) launched a two-run triple and Nick Bernick (Niagara) smacked a two-run double, as part of a seventh-inning offensive explosion, in which the Jammers drove in seven runs to blow the game open. On the mound, Michael Ginther (Canisius) got the win for the Jammers, after allowing three runs and striking out four in 5.0 innings of work.

Mohawk Valley (5-2) 6, Glens Falls (3-4) 5
After the Dragons walked off over Mohawk Valley, the DiamondDawgs got revenge at Veteran’s Memorial Park with a walk off to their own and slugged three home runs in the process. Clay Koniencki (Monmouth), Russ Olive (UMass Lowell) and Dan Deely (Sacramento State) each went yard for the hosts, with Olive’s being his league-leading third of the summer. Deely’s dinger in the seventh brought the DiamondDawgs within one run, 5-4. That set up Mohawk Valley to win it in the ninth. With the bases loaded, Koniencki was plunked by Glens Falls reliever Tom Taplin (Buffalo) to force in the tying run, before recovering to fan Olive on three pitches for the second out. However, Austin Pollack (Hofstra) drove in the winning run in the following at-bat with an RBI single.

Amsterdam (5-1) 10, Saugerties (3-4) 7
The Mohawks led by a slim 5-4 margin heading into the ninth inning at Cantine Field in Saugerties, N.Y., on Sunday night, but Amsterdam added some much needed insurance with a five-spot in the top of the ninth. The Mohawks would need those runs, as the Stallions had their eyes on a comeback in the bottom of the ninth, scoring thrice to make things interesting. Matt Feinstein (Dartmouth) hit a two-run double and scored on a ground out to bring Saugerties within three, but Amsterdam reliever Nick Insognia (Stony Brook) ended the game with his second strikeout of the inning. Andrew Saalfrank (Indiana) delivered a solid start for the Mohawks in his first appearance of the summer season, as he fanned six in 6.0 innings and allowed only three hits.
