Here’s a look back at the scores from around the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Friday, June 16:

Albany (7-2) 7, Utica (3-9) 5
The Dutchmen used a five-run third inning to propel them to a slim victory over the Blue Sox at Donovan Stadium. A Trace Tyre (Ole Miss) RBI double and two-out RBI singles off the bat of Colin Kaucher (Ohio Dominican) and Peyton Stockwell (North Alabama) highlighted the big third inning for Albany. Down 5-1, Utica clawed back with three runs in the fifth, with one scoring on a wild pitch, one on a bases-loaded walk, and another on Adam LaRock’s (Iowa) sac fly. Albany sandwiched a pair of runs in the seventh and ninth around one Blue Sox tally in the eighth, and reliever J.D. Mundt (Louisville) closed the game by retiring the side in order in the bottom of the ninth for the save. Tyre led all batters with an impressive 4-for-5 showing at the plate.

Saugerties (7-5) 7, Amsterdam (6-4) 2
The Stallions jumped out to a 6-0 lead and never looked back en route to a road victory over the Mohawks. Saugerties loaded the bases in both the third and fourth innings and scored a combined four runs in those two frames. Luke Petterson (Minnesota) opened the scoring in a three-run third inning with an RBI single and picked up another RBI in the fourth with a fielder’s choice. Down by six, the Mohawks managed to put ducks on the pond in the bottom of the seventh and plated two runs on an RBI walk and a sac fly, but that’s as close as they’d come in the late innings. Saugerties starter Nick Massa (Manhattan) earned the win after allowing two runs on four hits and five strikeouts in 6.1 innings.

Adirondack (5-7) 6, Mohawk Valley (7-4) 2
Adirondack’s third hitter in the lineup, John Michael Boswell (Furman), guided the visiting Trail Blazers to victory over the DiamondDawgs with a strong effort at the dish. He finished the night 3-for-5 with two doubles, three runs scored and one RBI. He doubled and scored in the first and third innings and drove in one of Adirondack’s two runs in the fourth with a two-out RBI single, which gave the Trail Blazers a 4-0 lead. Mohawk Valley slashed that lead in half with two runs in the bottom of the fourth, but Ryan Maya (Nova Southeastern) and Matthew Valin (Onondaga C.C.) each tossed a pair of scoreless innings out of the bullpen to preserve the lead.

Onondaga (5-5) 8, Elmira (6-6) 7
The Flames extinguished the Pioneers with a late rally to force extras and a wild walk-off in the 10th. Onondaga began its comeback with three runs in the seventh, which trimmed the deficit to 5-4. Matt Carey (Ithaca) plated two of those runs with a two-out double. In the eighth, Gage Lanning (Canisius) leveled the score at 6-6 with a two-out, two-run double of his own. Elmira’s Andrew Orzel (Wofford) gave the Pios a brief lead in the top of the 10th, when his would-be triple got by a diving outfielder and a wild throw to third allowed him to scamper home. In the bottom of the 10th, the Flames loaded the bases on a walk, single and hit-by-pitch. It looked as though the Pios might turn an inning-ending double play when Carey grounded the ball to the second baseman, but Lanning avoided the tag and created a rundown between first and second, which  lasted long enough for both the tying and go-ahead runs to score.

Geneva (8-4) 13, Newark (2-9) 4
The Red Wings flew past their nearby rival by scoring 13 runs on 13 hits, which included five extra-base knocks. The score was even at 4-all through five innings, but Geneva tallied one run in the sixth and then blew the game open with a six-spot in the seventh. Will Simoneit (Cornell) and Dominic Toso (Bucknell) each hit run-scoring doubles in the seventh, and both Matt Chamberlain (New Haven) and Yohei Ishiyama (Nihon Univ.) supplied RBI single in the breakout frame. Nine different Wings finished with at least one hit in the contest, with five players recording two-hit performances. On the mound, Justin Barr (Central Alabama C.C.) earned the win with 1.2 scoreless inning out of the bullpen.

Jamestown (9-2) 8, Oneonta (3-9) 0
The Jammers have won a league-best seven consecutive games and lead all teams in the PGCBL with a 9-2 overall record following their shutout victory against the Outlaws. Five different Jamestown pitchers combined to limit Oneonta to a mere three hits. Starter Christian Young (Niagara County C.C.), who was recently selected in the 21st round of the 2017 MLB Draft by Cincinnati, fanned three in 3.0 innings to earn the win with the Jammers pitching by committee on Friday. At the plate, Jimmy Standohar (Mercyhurst) belted a two-run double with the bases loaded in what turned into a five-run third inning, and both Ben Brookover (UTSA) and Casey Vincent (St. Bonaventure) produced three hits to lead the Jamestown offense.
