Here’s a glance at the results from across the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Sunday, July 23:

Utica (15-26) 10, Mohawk Valley (24-14) 9
What a comeback for the Blue Sox and All-Star outfielder Taylor Olmstead (Southern New Hampshire)! Utica trailed Mohawk Valley 9-0 entering the bottom of the sixth inning, but Olmstead’s three-run home run buoyed a five-run frame in which the Sox reduced the deficit to 9-5. In the seventh, Olmstead tied the game at 9-all with one swing of the bat, this time crushing a grand slam to bring his day’s total to seven RBI. In the bottom of the eighth, Devon Garcia (Ohio) scored the game-winning run on Rob Andreoli’s (LIU Post) sacrifice fly to complete the monumental comeback.

Adirondack (14-27) 12, Oneonta (12-26) 11 (10 innings)
The Trail Blazers and Outlaws engaged in a back-and-forth affair at the Robert Smith Sports Complex that saw both sides combine for 34 hits, 23 runs and 10 innings. Although Oneonta outhit Adirondack 20-to-14 as a team, it was Blazer outfielder Joe Simone (Rider) who finished a perfect 5-for-5 with six RBIs and two runs scored to lead the home team to victory. Simone plated one run with an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth, before scoring the tying run on a passed ball, which leveled the score at 10-all. Trailing 11-10 in the bottom of the 10th, the rising sophomore recorded the walk-off hit with a two-run base knock.

Jamestown (30-13) 6, Onondaga (18-23) 2
The Jammers reached the 30-win plateau with a victory over West Division foe Onondaga on Sunday afternoon. The Flames evened the score at 2-2 in the top of the seventh inning, when Colin BeVard (SUNY Cortland) tripled and scored. In the bottom of the frame the hosts scored three runs to take a lead they would never relinquish. A bases-loaded wild pitch and Jimmy Standohar’s (Mercyhurst) two-run single vaulted the Jammers into a 6-2 lead. Colin Johnston (Monroe C.C.) was then called out of the bullpen and tossed 2.0 hitless innings of relief to save the contest.

Albany (26-15) 9, Saugerties (18-21) 2
The Dutchmen moved into second place in the PGCBL’s East Division, taking a half-game lead over Mohawk Valley with the win over the Stallions on Sunday. Albany scored early and often, as the Dutchmen lit up the scoreboard in each of the first four innings. In the second inning, Brad Gneiting (Rice) extended the Dutchmen’s lead to 3-0 in the second with a two-run two-bagger. In the fourth, Brandt Holland (North Alabama) added a two-run double of his own, which was followed immediately by a two-RBI single off the bat of Trace Tyre (Ole Miss), as part of a five-run frame. On the mound, Matt Pierce (Siena) upped his record to a league-best 7-1 with 5.0 innings of two-run ball.

Elmira (23-20) 13, Glens Falls (15-28) 6
At times, it looked as though the Dragons may end their road skid, but the Pios plated 10 runs between the fifth and eighth innings to secure a home victory. A three-run sixth broke the 6-6 stalemate, highlighted a two-run Conor Grammes (Xavier) single. Marshall Gilbert (John A. Logan) added a two-run hit in the seventh, as part of his two-hit, four-RBI day. Although starter Parker Ford (Mississippi State) surrendered six runs in 4.1 innings, three Elmira relievers combined for 4.2 one-hit innings, with Bryce Zaparzynski (Mansfield) earning his first win of the summer. Glens Falls’ Brandon Torres (SUNY Oneonta) paced all batters with three hits.
