Daily Rundown: June 16, 2017

Southpaw Zach Eggers (Old Dominion) slings home a pitch during Thursday's game vs. Adirondack.

Here’s a look back at the scores from around the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Thursday, June 15:

Glens Falls (4-6) 6, Utica (3-8) 3
The Dragons scored four runs in the fourth and two more in the fifth inning to take a six-run lead, and then held off a late rally but the Blue Sox to secure the win at East Field. Nicholas Jacques (Le Moyne) drove in the first two runs of the game with a two-RBI single, which sparked the four-spot in the fourth. Consecutive sac flies in the fifth allowed the Dragons to increase their advantage to 6-0. In the top of the sixth, the Blue Sox loaded the bases with three consecutive singles and plated two runs on a Cole Pursell (Willamette) base knock. Zane Harris (Wright State) followed with an RBI single to cut the deficit in half, 6-3. Although Utica had two runners on in the eighth and one on in the ninth, the Blue Sox were unable to come any closer. Glens Falls starter James Varela (LIU Post) picked up the win with a strong 8.0 innings, as he allowed just three runs on seven hits and six strikeouts.

Oneonta (3-8) 9, Geneva (7-4) 8
The Red Wings jumped out to an early 7-1 lead, thanks mostly to a five-run second inning, but the persistent Outlaws slowly chipped away at the lead and forced extras by scoring twice in the ninth. Geneva’s big inning was fueled by Jake Evans’ (Alabama Southern C.C.) two-run double and Ben Terwillinger’s (Maine) two-run triple. In the fourth, Oneonta pushed across three runs, two which scored on a Stone Pellegrino (Wofford) two-run triple, which cut the Red Wings’ lead down to 7-5. In the bottom of the ninth, the Outlaws loaded the bases and Matt Tsukroff (Binghamton) leveled the score at 8-all with a two-run single. After Geneva left the bases loaded in the top half of the 10th, Chandler Engel (Columbia) plated the game-winning run to complete the comeback.

Amsterdam (6-3) 11, Saugerties (6-5) 5
The Mohawks only outhit the Stallions by a 13-to-11 margin, but they more than doubled their score in Thursday night’s decisive victory. Amsterdam tallied seven runs in a pivotal fifth inning, which broke what was a 2-2 tie. In the fifth inning alone, the Mohawks slugged three doubles and Anthony Gonnella (South Florida) crushed a three-run homer. Gonnella was one of fifth Mohawks to finish the night with multiple hits, as he went 2-for-4 with a game-high three RBIs. Liam Wilson (Canisius), who hit a solo home run in the second inning, finished 2-for-4 with two RBIs and two runs scored. Nick Bird (Albany) was credited with the victory on the mound, after throwing 2.0 scoreless innings with two strikeouts in his first appearance out of the bullpen.

Elmira (6-5) 6, Adirondack (4-7) 4
Thursday night’s game between the Trail Blazers and Pioneers was brought to an early end after 4.5 innings due to thunderstorms, and the host Pios walked away with a 6-4 victory. Elmira tallied four of its six runs in the first inning, two which were scored on a two-run double off the bat of Marshall Gilbert (John A. Logan). Adirondack came within one run of the lead, 5-4, by plating three runs of their own in the top of the fourth, highlighted by a Steffen Torgersen (Dartmouth) two-RBI triple. Unfortunately for the Trail Blazers, inclement weather cut their comeback attempts short. Zach Eggers (Old Dominion) was awarded the win on the mound, after allowing four runs on five hits in 4.0 innings, while Chase Austin (Corning C.C.) received the save with a scoreless top of the fifth.

Mohawk Valley (7-3) 3, Albany (6-2) 3 – Suspended due to darkness
