Two complete games were thrown on June 18 in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL), one that lasted all nine innings and one that required only five. Here's a look at those two pitching performances and the rest of the results from Sunday's games:

Jamestown (11-2) 2, Elmira (6-8) 0
The Jammers and Pioneers were able to squeeze in one of their two games during Sunday’s twinbill, a game which they won 2-0. Michael Ginther (Canisius) tossed a gem for Jamestown with six three-hit innings and five strikeouts en route to the “W”. Colin Johnston (Monroe C.C.) followed with a hitless inning out of the bullpen to save the contest. Jamestown scored the only runs of the seven-inning affair in the top of the first on RBI singles off the bat of Chris Estrada (UTSA) and Alex O’Donnell (Mercyhurst). Elmira starter Houston Roth (Ole Miss) was tagged with the loss after giving up those two runs in five innings of work while striking out six.

Utica (4-10) 10, Geneva (9-5) 1
The Blue Sox finally snapped a 10-game losing streak with a convincing victory over the Red Wings on Sunday. Leading the way for Utica was starter Dylan Leahy (Keystone), who hurled the first nine-inning complete game of the 2017 summer season. The 6-foot-2 southpaw went the distance while scattering one run on five hits, two walks and six strikeouts. With Leahy dealing, the Utica offense pounded out 10 runs on 16 hits, with Adam LaRock (Iowa), Mitch Calandra (Eckerd) and Evan Lee (Ashland) each producing three-hit outings. Devon Garcia (Ohio) slugged his first home run of the season, as both he and Kyle Norman (Buffalo) drove in a game-high three runs.

Glens Falls (5-8) 12, Amsterdam (6-6) 4
The Dragons scored runs in bunches on Sunday night, tallying three runs in the third, three more in the fourth, and five in the seventh. Glens Fall only led by two, 6-4, heading into the seventh, but the Dragons loaded the bases and subsequently cleared them on a Jared Drizin (Bucknell) double, which ballooned the lead to 10-4.Drizin led the Dragons with three RBIs on the night, while Anthony Vaglica (LIU Post) and Phoenix Hernandez (Southern New Hampshire) each went 2-for-5. Picking up the win was Alex Phillips (Bellarmine), who surrendered four runs on six hits in 6.0 innings, to go along with four strikeouts. Tom Taplin (Buffalo) came out of the bullpen and earned a three-inning save.

Adirondack (6-8) 8, Albany (9-3) 2
The Trail Blazers scored four runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to turn a 4-2 game into a six-run lead, and the game was called after the fifth due to rain. Lou Matarazzo (Iona) drove in two runs in the third inning on a double to give Adirondack an early 2-0 lead and picked up his game-high third RBI on a bases-loaded walk in the fourth. The big fifth inning was highlighted by a Tyler Bruno (Iona) two-run triple, as the two Iona Gaels combined for three hits, five RBIs and two runs scored to pace the Trail Blazer offense. On the mound, Bryce Van Horn (Nova Southeastern) gets credit for a complete game, as he tossed all five innings and allowed two runs on three hits.

Newark (2-9) 5, Onondaga (6-5) 2
Suspended due to rain in the bottom of the fourth. The game will be completed as part of a non-traditional doubleheader on Friday, June 23, beginning at 5:05 p.m. at Colburn Park.
