Here’s a look back at the scores from around the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Monday, July 3:

Mohawk Valley (15-6) 6, Utica (5-19) 2
Righty Jonathan McKinney (Southern Union State C.C.) had another strong start for the DiamondDawgs, as he struck out a season-high 10 batters versus just one walk in 6.0 innings of work. He allowed two runs on seven hits en route to his second consecutive victory. Russ Olive (UMass Lowell) proved to be his best friend at the plate, as the first baseman went 2-for-5 with a double and four RBIs. He gave the ‘Dawgs a 2-1 advantage with a two-run hit in the top of the third, before slugging a two-run double in the sixth. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth, Zach Vennaro (Mount Olive) came in out of the bullpen and fanned Cole Pursell (Willamette) to secure his sixth save of the summer season.

Amsterdam (19-7) 6, Albany (13-10) 4
The Dutchmen scored the first two runs of the game, after Adam Elliott (Louisville) led off the top of the first with a triple, and Nick Estrella (Azusa Pacific) and Justin Childers (Ohio Dominican) followed with RBI singles. However, the Mohawks would take the lead for good in the bottom of the third, first tying the game on a two-run Matt Gorski (Indiana) base hit, before Dylan Reynolds (Fairfield) hit an RBI single to make it 3-2 Amsterdam. Eric Rivera (Florida Atlantic) extended the lead to 5-2 with a two-run home run in the fifth, his third homer in his last four games. Andrew Saalfrank (Indiana) got the win with a season-high eight strikeouts in 6.2 innings of work.

Glens Falls (9-15) 13, Saugerties (13-11) 5
The Dragons scored at least one run in six of the eight innings in which they batted, including three in the third, two in the second and four in the fifth, which gave them a commanding 10-3 lead midway through the contest. Brandon Torres (SUNY Oneonta) paced the Glens Falls offense by going 2-for-5 with one double, a solo homer, three runs scored and three RBIs. In the lead-off spot, Brian Uliana (Rider) finished 1-for-3 with a triple and a game-high-tying three runs scored. All of that offense supported local product Tyler Mattison (Bryant) on the mound, as the Fort Ann, New York, native won his second straight home start with 5.0 innings of three-run ball.

Newark (7-21) 5, Onondaga (12-11) 3
The Flames were hot in the first inning, as they scored what turned out to be their only three runs of the game to pull ahead 3-1. In the opening frame, Trey Baur (Cornell) hit an RBI single, followed by a Matt Carey (Ithaca) sac fly and a successful double steal, which allowed Baur to score from third. The Pilots chipped away at the lead with runs in the third and fourth, before breaking a 3-3 stalemate with two runs in the top of the seventh. Hunter Wells (Tyler J.C.) and Will Allocca (Virginia) provided the game-winning RBIs, and combined they finished 5-for-8 with four RBIs, while batting third and cleanup, respectively.

Jamestown (22-5) 7, Oneonta (6-18) 3
The Jammers scored four runs in the fourth inning and added some insurance with a three-spot in the eighth, as they left Damaschke Field  with a 7-3 victory over the Outlaws. With the bases loaded in the fourth, John Conti (Canisius) hit a two-run single and Chris Stefl (St. John’s) followed with a two-run double in the next at-bat. The duo each added an RBI in the eighth inning as well, and between the pair they accounted for six of the Jammers’ seven runs batted in. Michael Ginther (Canisius) improved to 4-0 on the mound with 6.0 innings of three-run ball and three strikeouts, and Week 1 Player of the Week Christ Conley (Canisius) bumped his batting average back above .400 with a three-hit performance.

Elmira (14-13) 5, Geneva (16-10) 1
Elmira pushed across one run in the second inning, which was the only run scored in the game until the seventh. The Pioneers took a 3-1 lead in the eighth on a bases-loaded walk issued to Colton Evans (UC Davis), but the Red Wings trimmed the deficit back to one run with an RBI groundout in the home half of the inning. Allbry Major (Xavier) gave Elmira some breathing run with a two-run jack in the top of the ninth. Although Matt Chamberlain (New Haven) led off the bottom of the inning with a base hit, he was erased for the game’s final out trying to steal second. Grant Donahue (Virginia) was stellar on the mound for the Pios, as he tossed 5.0 scoreless innings and surrendered just two hits to go along with seven strikeouts.
