Daily Rundown: July 11, 2017

Utica's Zane Harris (Wright State) continued to swing a hot bat, but his homer wasn't enough for the Blue Sox vs. Albany on Monday night (photo credit: Travis Larner).

Here’s a glance at the results from across the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Monday, July 10:

Newark (10-24) 7, Geneva (18-14) 4
A three-run first inning gave the Pilots a lead they would never relinquish at McDonough Park on Monday. Hunter Wells (Tyler J.C.) and Colton Carney (Seton Hill) each hit RBI doubles in the opening frame to jumpstart the Newark offense.  Then in the fifth, Peter Battaglia (Niagara) launched a two-run home run to make it a 5-2 score through five innings of play. Down 7-3, the Red Wings to one back in the ninth, when Jake Lyle (Volunteer State C.C.) doubled and scored on Dominic Toso’s (Bucknell) RBI single, but Newark’s Kyle Griffen (Louisiana Tech) finished his second inning of work out of the bullpen to preserve the lead and record his third save of the summer.

Amsterdam (25-7) 11, Elmira (17-16) 8
The Pioneers had an upset in mind on Monday night, as they quickly took a 5-0 lead in the top of the second inning. Four of those five runs came around to score on Marshall Gilbert’s (John A. Logan) grand slam, but the lead would be short lived. Amsterdam countered with a five-spot in the home half of the second. Dan Maynard (Maryland), who slugged a solo homer in the third for the Mohawks, recorded an RBI single in the bottom of the five gave the hosts the lead for good at 7-6. Elliot Anderson (Auburn) was the winner on the mound with 3.0 innings of one-run ball out of the bullpen and Carter Knapek (UMass) saved the contest with a scoreless ninth.

Albany (19-11) 17, Utica (9-21) 7
The Dutchmen scored early and often, which proved to be necessary after the host Blue Sox scored seven unanswered runs in the fourth and fifth innings combined. Leading 9-7, Albany extended its lead with four more runs in the sixth, two which were driven in on an Adam Elliot (Louisville) double. It turned the game into a rout with two runs in both the eighth and ninth to cap off a 17-run and 18-hit outburst. Albany’s top two hitters in the lineup did the lion’s share of the work at the dish, as Brad Gneiting (Rice) finished a whopping 6-for-7 with five runs scored and one RBI, while Elliot was 4-for-6 with one double, one triple, three RBIs and four runs. Utica’s Zane Harris (Wright State) led all batters with four RBIs as part of his 2-for-3 effort; Harris slugged a three-run homer in the fifth for the Blue Sox.

Glens Falls (10-21) 15, Saugerties (14-16) 12
A rollercoaster of a ballgame at East Field resulted in a wild 15-12 victory for the host Dragons. The Stallions scored the game’s first five runs, but a six-run fourth helped Glens Falls gain its first lead at 8-6. In the top of the sixth, Saugerties pushed across three more runs to regain the lead by a one-run margin, 9-8; the go-ahead run was driven in by Matt Forlow (Manhattan) on a two-out base knock. In the home half of the sixth, however, the Dragons roared from behind to take the lead for good by plating five runs of their own. With the bases loaded, Nicholas Jacques (Le Moyne) hit a two-run single, which was followed by an RBI hit off the bat of Brian Uliana (Rider) that made it a 13-9 score. Duncan Amrein (Bellarmine) was able to complete a 1-2-3 ninth inning for the save and Peter Masterson (Kutztown) was credited with the win with 4.1 innings of relief.

Mohawk Valley (20-7) 11, Adirondack (10-19) 4
With the score knotted at 3-all through five innings of play at the Robert Smith Sports Complex in Boonville, N.Y., the DiamondDawgs were able to outscore the Trail Blazers 8-1 in the final four innings to pick up their 20th win of the summer. Mohawk Valley broke the tie with three runs in the top of the sixth, two of which were plated on a Joe Engel (Columbia) base hit. In the ninth, Tom Moore (Saint Rose), Engel and Alexis Monge-Rodriguez (Barry) connected for back-to-back-to-back doubles, driving in four runs in the process to extend their lead to an insurmountable margin. Tyler Ksiazek (Monmouth) won his third straight start with 6.0 innings of three-run ball and four strikeouts for Mohawk Valley.
