SAUGERTIES, N.Y. - On Tuesday night, the Saugerties Stallions established a new franchise record for wins with their 15th of the season, as they defeated the Glens Falls Dragons 4-3 at Cantine Field.

In the first inning, five of the six outs were recorded by strike outs. Saugerties’ Drew Farkas (Hartford) started off the game with 2 strikeouts of his own. Jack Gonzalez (Stetson) was able to get the other out with a beautiful stretch at first base to record the out. Jack Gonzalez had a stellar defensive performance tonigh.

The Stallions had a big sixth inning. Both Jack Gonzalez and Nick Teitter (Saint Rose) lead off the inning by walking on eight consecutive pitches. Pat Lagravinese (Albany) hit a rocket back to the  pitcher who then turned to throw to second base which lead to an error by the Dragons second baseman. Jack Gonzalez didn't slow down from the plays start to finish and he was able to score from second base after the ball went into center field. Nick Teitter was able to score on Matt Forlow’s base hit and the overthrow by the left fielder.

Those four runs were enough for the Stallions relievers Brady Peterson (Stetson), Kevin Napoleon (Butler), and Matt Pushard (Maine) who all threw one scoreless inning each to hold the Dragons and get the win.
