Here is a look at the news and results from around the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Wednesday, July 26:

Saugerties (19-23) 4, Oneonta (13-27) 0 (Game 1)
Three Saugerties pitchers combined to three-hit the Outlaws in the opening game of Wednesday’s twin bill at Cantine Field. Nick Massa (Manhattan) struck out three in his 4.0 innings of work to earn the win, while Jack Kelley (Nyack) accumulated three punch outs in 2.0 innings out of the bullpen and Matt Pushard (Maine) hurled a scoreless seventh. Not only was the pitching on point, but the Stallions outhit Oneonta 12-to-3. Luke Pettersen (Minnesota) and Clay Simmons (South Florida) both finished with three hits to paced the Saugerties offense.

Oneonta 3, Saugerties 2 (Game 2)
A Mike Brown (Dartmouth) RBI grounder and Matt Tsukroff (Binghamton) sac fly in the first inning of the nightcap gave the Outlaws a lead they would never relinquish. Ian Fair (Northeastern) then slugged a solo home run in the top of the third, which extended the Oneonta lead to 3-1. Saugerties got one run back when Simmons tripled and scored in the sixth, but the Stallions left the tying and go-ahead runs on base in the bottom of the seventh. Josh Winkler (Northeastern) received the win with 4.0 scoreless relief innings and Andrew Workman (Quinnipiac) saved the contest with a scoreless seventh.

Amsterdam (32-12) 8, Glens Falls (15-30) 0
The Mohawks only led the Dragons by two runs through six full innings of play at Shuttleworth Park on Wednesday, but the East Division leaders tagged on six runs in the seventh and eighth to turn the contest into a rout. Jake Mueller (Wake Forest) cleared the bases with a three-run single in the seventh and Dalton Skelton (Louisiana Tech) launched a three-run homer in the eighth to widen the gap even further. On the mound, Joe LaSorsa (St. John’s) tossed 5.0 two-hit frames and struck out three to earn the win for Amsterdam, while Glens Falls’ Tom Taplin (Buffalo) was tagged with the loss, after giving up two runs and fanning seven in 6.0 innings.

Onondaga (19-24) 9, Adirondack (14-28) 3
The Flames moved one step closer to securing a playoff berth with a lopsided victory over the Trail Blazers in Boonville, N.Y. Up by a slim 4-3 score, Onondaga padded its lead with five runs in the final two innings to put the game out of Adirondack’s reach. Trey Baur (Cornell) drove in a game-high three runs for the Flames, with two coming home on a two-run double in the third inning. Brandon Shirley (Wells) toed the rubber for his first start of the summer and hurled 6.0 innings of three-run ball to secure the win. Reliever Ryan Marketell (Monroe C.C.) pitched a trio of scoreless innings and earned a three-inning save.

Geneva (27-18) 8, Utica (15-28) 5
The Red Wings’ run to secure one of the top two seeds in the West Division was boosted by a 8-5 home victory over the Blue Sox. Starter Jordan Murphy (UT Dallas) pieced together his longest outing of his summer campaign with 6.1 innings of work on 97 pitches. Murphy also tied his season high with five strikeouts while surrendering four runs on eight hits. Geneva added insurance runs with an RBI ground out by Will Simoneit (Cornell) that plated Yohei Ishiyama (Nihon Univ. (Japan)) and a run-scoring single off the bat of Joseph Tassin (Bossier Parish C.C.), which extended its lead to 8-4. Ishiyama was a perfect 3-for-3 with a game-high two RBIs for the G-Wings.

Newark (18-27) 12, Elmira (24-21) 8
The Pilots are looking to track down the Flames for the fourth and final seed in the West Division, and they helped their cause by taking down the currently No. 3-seeded Pioneers at Dunn Field. Elmira jumped out to an early lead with a five-run second inning, but Newark responded with a seven-spot in the top of the sixth that put the Pilots up 10-5. Hunter Wells (Tyler J.C.) drove in two of his three runs on the night with a two-RBI single in the decisive inning. Wells added an RBI double in the top of the ninth that scored Graham Hackbarth (Pearl River C.C.), who paced all batters with three hits and four RBIs, while batting out of the two-hole in the Newark lineup.

Albany (28-15) 4, Mohawk Valley (26-15) 3 (16 innings)
The Dutchmen and DiamondDawgs finally finished their halted contest from June 15, but it took 16 innings to decide a winner. Wednesday started in the top of the 10th with a score even at 3-3, and neither side could generate much offense in the extra frames until the 16th. Justin Childers (Ohio Dominican) was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning, moved to second on a sac bunt and took third on a Zach Durfee (Siena) single. Peyton Stockwell (North Alabama) then drove home the walk-off game winner with an RBI single. Justin Bureau (Ave Maria) won the game with 1.2 innings of relief, meaning the 6-foot-3 right-hander has yet to allow a run in 19.2 innings of work so far this summer.

Albany 7, Mohawk Valley 1 (Regularly-scheduled game; suspended due to darkness)
With the first game requiring another six overtime innings to decide a winner, the regularly-scheduled contest between the Dutchmen and DiamondDawgs did not have enough daylight to reach its completion. The game will resume in the top of the sixth inning with the Dutchmen leading 7-1 on Monday, July 31, at Veteran’s Memorial Park in Little Falls, N.Y.
