Daily Rundown: June 25, 2017

Houston Roth (Ole Miss) was near-perfect on Saturday, June 24, as he set a PGCBL record with 20 strikeouts in his victory over Newark (photo credit: Lexi Woodcock).

Here’s a look back at the scores from around the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Saturday, June 24, including one pitching performance that will go down as one of the greatest in league history:

Onondaga (11-6) 4, Albany (10-7) 3
The Flames used an eighth-inning rally to overcome a 3-1 deficit and take down the Dutchmen at Siena Field. While Albany starter Greg Marino (Stony Brook) pitched a superb 7.0 innings, having allowed just one run on five hits, Onondaga quickly tagged Deavan Phillips (Ave Maria) for three runs in the eighth. With the bases loaded and two outs, Ricky Sisto (Monroe C.C.) slugged a bases-clearing double to put the Flames on top, 4-3. In the bottom of the ninth, Albany loaded the bases with only one out, but a pop up to the catcher and a called strike three allowed Evan Dunn (St. Lawrence) to escape the jam with a save.

Geneva (13-6) 3, Adirondack (8-10) 1
The Red Wings also used a late rally to knock off the Trail Blazers in what started as quite the pitchers’ duel. Adirondack’s Mike Delease (Central Conn. State) and Geneva’s Brian Reed (RIT) did not surrender a run until the top of the fifth, when Bailey Collins (Concordia (Calif.)) triple and scored on a Bay McIntosh (Florida Tech) base hit, which gave the Trail Blazers a 1-0 advantage. That lead lasted until the seventh, when Joseph Tassin (Bossier Parish C.C.) and Matt Smith (UC Davis) hit back-to-back RBI singles to put the Red Wings ahead by one, and a bases-loaded walk forced in the third run of the frame. Reed struck out 10 batters and went the distance on the mound to earn the win.

Mohawk Valley (11-6) 2, Jamestown (14-5) 0
The DiamondDawgs tallied two runs in the top of the third inning, which proved to be the only offense needed to win, as three pitchers combined to shutout the Jammers. Tyler Ksiazek (Monmouth) tossed 6.0 scoreless innings, followed by two from Johann Doerrer (Mohawk Valley C.C.) before Zach Vennaro (Mount Olive) locked down his league-leading fourth save of the summer in the ninth. In the third, Russ Olive (UMass Lowell) tripled and scored on Austin Pollack’s (Hofstra) double for the first run of the game. Clay Koniencki (Monmouth) then drove in Pollack with a two-out RBI single.

Amsterdam (14-6) 9, Saugerties (10-8) 3
The Amsterdam offense continues to produce runs and extra-base hits at a torrent pace, this time scoring nine runs on 11 overall hits, six of which for extra bases. Slugging first baseman T.J. Collett (Kentucky) finished 4-for-5 with two doubles and a home run, and if it hadn’t been for a ground-rule double in the ninth, he would have likely attempted to leg out the final piece of the cycle. Collett’s solo home in the first inning got things started at the plate, giving Joe LaSorsa (St. John’s) enough support to earn the win with 6.0 innings of one-run ball and seven strikeouts.

Elmira (7-12) 2, Newark (4-14) 0
Elmira right-hander Houston Roth (Ole Miss) established a new PGCBL single-game record – and tied the MLB record – by striking out 20 batters in a masterful complete-game victory over the Pilots on Saturday night. Roth, a Freshman All-American from Ole Miss, carried a perfect game into the seventh inning and faced just two batters over the minimum, after giving up a double in the seventh and a single in the ninth. Newark starter Will Frank (Canisius) also had a shutout going until the seventh inning, when Conor Grammes (Xavier) launched a two-run home run for the only runs of the game.

Oneonta (6-12) 9, Utica (4-15) 6
The Outlaws were out-hit by the Blue Sox by a wide 14-to-8 margin, but the Utica pitching staff issued 10 walks to aid Oneonta’s cause. The host Outlaws took the lead for good in the fourth inning, scoring twice on wild pitches to jump out to a 4-3 lead. That signaled the end of Brian Dolan’s (UMass Lowell) night, as the Utica starter was pulled after giving up eight walks, uncorking five wild pitches, and hitting two. His counterpart, Matt Ellymer (Wofford) limited the Blue Sox to four runs on 13 hits, but did not walk any and fanned six en route to the win. Outlaw catcher Chris Tracz (Marist) reached base safely in all five of his plate appearances, going 2-for-2 with three walks, two RBIs and two runs scored.
