Fittingly, four games were played in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on the Fourth of July. Here’s a look back at the scores from around the league on Independence Day:

Adirondack (9-13) 6, Onondaga (12-12) 0
Jonathan Hardy (Mohawk Valley C.C.) kept the Flames off balance all afternoon while tossing a complete-game shutout, as the Trail Blazers earned a 6-0 win at the Onondaga Community College Baseball Complex on Tuesday. Hardy surrendered just five hits and walked three with one strikeout. His counterpart, Chase Hegarty (Southeast Missouri) didn’t have a bad day himself, as he gave up two runs on just three hits to go along with a game-high seven strikeouts in 5.0 innings, but was saddled with the loss. Adirondack took advantage following Hagerty’s exit in the sixth inning, when it scored four runs on two hits, two walks, two Onondaga errors and one hit by pitch.

Oneonta (7-18) 6, Glens Falls (9-16) 4
The Dragons, thanks to a three-run third inning, held a 4-3 advantage heading into the bottom of the eighth inning. That’s when the Outlaws stole the lead with a three-spot of their own. After getting the first two batters he faced in the eighth out, Glens Falls reliever Robert Paccione (LIU Post) loaded the bases with two singles and a walk, and Oneonta’s Mike Brown (Dartmouth) unloaded them with a three-run triple. Brown finished the day 3-for-4 with two triples and four RBIs to paced the offense and give his starter, Nathan Wrighter (Bryant), a chance to go the distance. Wrighter needed 125 pitches, but he tossed all nine innings, scattering 10 hits and four runs while fanning seven.

Albany (14-10) 11, Saugerties (13-12) 0
The Dutchmen used an all-around tremendous performance to silence the Stallions on the Fourth of July. At the plate, Albany recorded 11 runs on 13 hits, while on the mound, a trio of pitchers limited Saugerties to a mere three hits. Every starter in the lineup had at least one hit for the Dutchmen, led by returner Justin Childers (Ohio Dominican), who went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and a pair driven in. Meanwhile, 6-foot-6 righty Greg Marino (Stony Brook) secured his first win of the summer in his fourth start, as he faced the minimum in 6.2 scoreless innings. He allowed just one hit, which was quickly erased with a double play, and struck out four.

Geneva (17-10) 7, Newark (7-22) 4
The Red Wings used some late-game fireworks to overcome a 4-0 deficit and defeat their Finger Lakes rivals at Colburn Park on Tuesday night. Three unearned runs in the bottom of the second and a Mark McKenna (Canisius) RBI single in the third gave Newark its early lead. Geneva responded with two runs in the sixth, three in the seventh and two more in the eighth to rally from behind. Ben Terwillinger (Maine) gave the G-Wings the lead, 5-4, with a three-run bases-clearing double in the bottom of the seventh. Newark managed to lead the bases with only one out, but Colby Mullins (Andrew) induced a shallow fly out and a pop out to register the save. Justin Barr (Central Alabama C.C.) earned the win with 2.2 scoreless innings out of the bullpen.
