Mohawks Sweep Doubleheader, Move Into First in East

AMSTERDAM, N.Y. - The Amsterdam Mohawks routed the Saugerties Stallions in both acts of a doubleheader Friday night at Shuttleworth Park, first by a score of 13-2, then by a score of 8-1.

Both games went 7 innings each, with Andrew Saalfrank (Indiana), going all seven innings of game 1, giving up two runs on two hits and walk with seven strikeouts.  T.J. Collett (Kentucky) went 2-for-2 with 5 RBIs, including a monster three-run homer, and John Valente (St. Johns) went 3-for-5 and was a homer away from the cycle. Nick Campana (Hartford) went 1-3 with a HR in the loss.

In game one, Campana led it off with a bomb over the left field wall, giving the Stallions their only lead of the game.

In the second, the Mohawks jumped out to a big lead thanks to a six-run inning that included Collett’s big fly.  Amsterdam would add four more in the fourth on a two-run triple by Matt Gorski (Indiana) and RBI singles from Collett and Liam Wilson (Canisius).

The Mohawks added three more, and the Stallions could not recover, with the loss going to Matt Jones (Manhattan), and the win going to Saalfrank.

In game two, the results stayed much of the same, with the Mohawks scoring in every inning but the second.  Danny Skelton (Mississippi St.) went 1-for-2 with two RBIs and Valente stayed red hot, going 3-for-4 with one run. Nick Campana went 3-4 in the loss.

In the first inning, TJ Collett would score the first run of the game on two throwing errors by Saugerties, and from there the Mohawks would never trail. The Stallions scored their only run of game two on an RBI single by Matt Feinstein (Dartmouth).  The Mohawks would have their biggest inning in the fifth, when Liam Wilson led off with a home run to left -center, and Skelton would plate two more on a single.  Amsterdam would add two in the 6th and two more in the seventh to win by a score of 8-1.

Nick Chiseri (Connecticut) would pick up the win for the Mohawks in relief. Drew Farkas (Hartford) would take the loss for Saugerties, and Carter Knapek (Boston College) would pick up the save after three innings of scoreless relief.

These teams will meet again tomorrow night at Cantine Memorial Field in Saugerties, with the first pitch slated for 7:05 p.m.
