Trail Blazers Fall to DiamondDawgs, 13-5

BOONVILLE, N.Y. - In their first game back from the 2017 PGCBL All-Star break, the Adirondack Trail Blazers dropped their ninth straight home loss to the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs, 13-5.

Right from the start, Mohawk Valley took control. The first run that came across was with the bases loaded and Clay Koniencki (Monmouth) got hit by a pitch. Ben Porter (Columbia) hit an RBI single and Dan Deely (Sacramento State) scored from third on a wild pitch.

The Blazers were able to record only one hit during the first two innings of play, a single from Chuck Hooker (Alderson Broaddus).

Most of the damage by the DiamondDawgs would come during the top of the second. The Dawgs picked apart Blazers' starter Kyle Cashman (Pace) and scored six runs on five hits. Joe Engel (Columbia) hit a lead-off single, scored and hit a two-RBI double in the second inning alone. Cashman was replaced by Ryan Maya (Nova Southeastern) who recorded the third out to stop the bleeding.

Adirondack refused to give up despite trailing 9-0 entering the bottom of the third. Steffen Torgersen (Dartmouth) lead off with a walk and scored off a base hit by Riley Schaefer (Texas Lutheran). Joe Simone (Rider) hit his first home run of the year, a three-run shot to right center field and the Blazers started to make a comeback, but was still behind 9-4.

Maya pitched well in his relief appearance, allowing only two runs that came in the top of the fourth. Through 4.1 innings, he allowed only three hits, one walk and recorded three strikeouts.

The last of the Blazers' hits came in the bottom of the fourth. Hooker hit a lead-off double and later scored by a base hit from Tyler Bruno (Iona). Throughout the rest of the game, only three batters reached base for Adirondack and all reached on errors.

In the top of the seventh, Tim Zeng (Fairfield) hit a solo home run, his third on the year, and Deely scored on a double by Koniencki. No other hits or runs were recorded in the eighth or ninth for Mohawk Valley and they won easily 13-5.

Cashman was credited with the loss, making his record 0-7 through eight starts. He had no strikeouts and walked seven batters, three of which were hit by a pitch.

Jack Fossand (Dartmouth) evened his record at 2-2 with the win. He pitched five full innings with four strikeouts and two walks.

Mohawk Valley and Adirondack will battle again one more time in a doubleheader on Thursday, July 27, in Little Falls.
