Here’s a look back at the scores from around the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Thursday, June 29:

Jamestown (19-5) 11, Newark (5-19) 9 (Game 1)
The Jammers never trailed the Pilots in the opening game of Thursday’s doubleheader, but Newark narrowed the gap with a couple of three-run innings late in the game. Following a four-run top of the fifth for Jamestown, which included a two-run double off the bat of Skyler Valentine (UTSA) and an RBI triple from Collin Stack (UMBC), the host Pilots tallied three runs of their own in the bottom half of the inning to make it a 9-6 game. Ben Brookover (UTSA) provided an important two-run home run for the Jammers in the sixth that proved to be necessary, as Newark scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh and left the bases loaded in the final frame.

Jamestown 14, Newark 8 (Game 2)
Jamestown scored seven runs in the third inning en route to a victory in the nightcap. Chris Estrada (UTSA) punctuated the big inning with a two-run triple, which at the time gave the Jammers a 10-1 lead. Newark managed to come as close as 11-7, but a three-run sixth inning all but sealed the sweep. Jimmy Standohar (Mercyhurst) had a big day at the plate in the late game, going 4-for-4 with two doubles, two RBIs and three runs scored. Christ Conley (Canisius) was 2-for-3 from the lead-off spot with a home run and three RBIs. Casey Vincent (St. Bonaventure) surrendered two unearned runs in 1.2 innings but received the win on the mound with three strikeouts.

Amsterdam (17-6) 7, Oneonta (6-17) 6
For a moment, it appeared as if the Outlaws were going to leave Shuttleworth Park with an upset victory over the Mohawks, but Eric Rivera (Florida Atlantic) played the hero for the second game in a row. Rivera hit a walk-off homer on Tuesday to lift Amsterdam to an 8-7 win over Utica, and this time crushed a two-run walk-off bomb, as his Mohawks edged Oneonta 7-6 despite being outhit by the Outlaws 11-to-8. Justin Reed (Indiana) hurled a scoreless ninth inning to earn the win, while Oneonta reliever Matt Deans (USC Sumter) was saddled with the loss after giving up the winning home run.

Saugerties (12-9) 11, Albany (12-8) 10
The Dutchmen stormed back from a 10-2 deficit to tie the game 10-all in the top of the ninth against the Stallions. Albany scored five times in the eighth inning with three of those runs coming home on a bases-clearing Justin Childers (Ohio Dominican) double with two-outs. Chris Villa (Seton Hall) then leveled the score with a solo dinger in the top of the ninth, but Saugerties’ Nick Campana (Hartford) reached on an error and scored the game-winning run after Luke Petterson’s (Minnesota) ensuing base hit was mishandled in the outfield. For Pettersen, the single in the ninth was his game-high fourth hit of the contest, as he finished 4-for-6 with three runs scored. Childers led all players with four RBIs for the Dutchmen.

Elmira (10-13) 21, Geneva (16-8) 4
The Pioneers but on a show at McDonough Park on Thursday night in a lopsided win over the West Division’s second-place squad. Elmira scored a season-high 21 runs on 18 hits and six Geneva errors. Anthony Nucerino (UConn), Troy Dixon (Samford) and Allbry Major (Xavier) each finished with three hits, while batting third, fourth and fifth, respectively. Meanwhile, catcher Marshall Gilbert (John A. Logan) had himself quite the outing and batted 5-for-5 with two doubles, two homers, three runs scored and a PGCBL-record-tying eight RBIs. Gilbert launched a three-run homer in the third inning and a grand slam in the ninth for his first two long balls of the summer campaign.
