Here’s a look back at the scores from around the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Wednesday, June 28:

Mohawk Valley (14-6) 6, Newark (5-17) 5 (Game 1)
The DiamondDawgs and Pilots played to a 3-3 tie through the first five innings of play, but Mohawk Valley separated itself by scoring three times in the top of the sixth inning. Alexis Monge-Rodriguez (Barry) drove in one run with an RBI single, followed by an RBI double off the bat of Tim Zeng (Fairfield) that plated Monge-Rodriguez. The eventual game-winning run was scored by Zeng on an RBI base knock from Russ Olive (UMass Lowell), who spent last summer with the Pilots. Newark scored twice in the bottom of the frame, including a Mark McKenna (Canisius) run-scoring double, but Zach Vennaro (Mount Olive) earned a four-out save to seal the deal.

Mohawk Valley 8, Newark 3 (Game 2)
Last year’s co-Pitcher of the Year, Joe DeSarro (Southern New Hampshire), improved to 4-0 on the mound by tossing 5.0 solid innings in the nightcap. He allowed three runs (one earned) on five hits while striking out a game-high eight. DeSarro received plenty of offensive support, such as Clay Koniencki’s (Monmouth) two-run home run in the first inning, which vaulted the DiamondDawgs into an early 3-0 advantage. Newark trimmed the deficit to just one run, 3-2, in the second, and was not far behind, 5-3, through four innings of play. Once again, however, the visitors tallied three runs in the sixth inning to separate themselves from Newark.

Elmira (9-13) 10, Utica (4-18) 8
The Pioneers used a six-run seventh inning to complete a come-from-behind victory over the Blue Sox at Donovan Stadium. Following a bases-loaded balk, which tied the score at 8-all, Andrew Orzel (Wofford) drove in the winning runs with a two-RBI double. Utica put runners on the corners with only one away in the bottom of the ninth, but Elmira reliever TJ Stuart (Manhattan) fanned the final two batters of the inning to lock down his two-inning save. Orzel led all batters with a 3-for-5 showing, two doubles and three RBIs. Brayden Combs (Kentucky) broke a seven-game hitless streak by going 2-for-5 with his first homer of the summer, a solo shot which led off the top of the sixth.

Jamestown (17-5) 15, Onondaga (12-9) 3
The Jammers pummeled the Flames by scoring 15 runs on 12 walks, 10 hits, four Onondaga errors, and a pair of hit-by-pitches. Already up 8-3 in the seventh, Week 1 Player of the Week Christ Conley (Canisius) ripped a two-run double and was replaced by pinch-runner Chris Stefl (St. John’s), who went on to hit a bases-clearing three-run double as part of a five-run eighth inning. Nathan Grant (St. Bonaventure) secured the victory on the mound after allowing three runs on four hits and six strikeouts. After Grant’s exit, a trio of Jamestown relievers combined to limit the Flames to just one hit. On the other hand, Onondaga needed six pitchers to finish the game, and only Jared Strait (Wells) completed his outing without issuing a free pass; Strait tossed 1.2 innings of one-hit ball with three strikeouts.

Saugerties (11-9) 8,  Glens Falls (8-14) 7
The Stallions pulled ahead with a three-run first inning and survived a late Glens Falls rally. In the top of the seventh, the Dragons took a brief lead, 6-4, after Phoenix Hernandez (Southern New Hampshire) slugged an RBI triple and came around to score on an error. However, Saugerties responded by loading the bases and Tyler Kelder (St. Bonaventure) promptly unloaded them with a three-run double in the home half of the seventh. The two sides traded runs in the eighth, with Stallion outfielder Jack Gonzalez (Stetson) recording the winning RBI with a one-run base hit in the bottom of the eighth. Although Matt Pushard (Maine) walked a pair in the ninth, he fanned two batters to save the game.

Albany (12-7) 7, Oneonta (6-16) 5
A four-run second inning had the Dutchmen off to a good start, as four different batters picked up an RBI single to put Albany ahead early. The Outlaws chipped away at the deficit and leveled the score in the fifth at 4-all, but would have taken a one-run lead if Albany left fielder Griffin Herrera (Azusa Pacific) hadn’t thrown out Aron Fried (Quinnipiac) at the plate, as he tried to score from second on a base hit to left. Herrera then led off the seventh with a four-pitch walk and scored the go-ahead run on an error. Oneonta put two runners on in the ninth, but Stone Pellegrino (Wofford) was caught stealing third and Mark Flynn (Columbia) was caught looking at strike three to end the game.
