Here is a look at the news and results from around the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) on Sunday, July 30:

Jamestown (33-15) 4, Adirondack (16-32) 1
Connor Ryan (Mercyhurst), making just his second start in 19 appearances, earned his first win since June 17 with an outstanding performance on Sunday. He struck out nine versus one walk and allowed just one run in 6.0 innings. Nick Bernick (Niagara) smacked an RBI double and John Conti (Canisius) picked up an RBI on a grounder in the sixth inning, which put Jamestown up 3-0. Bay McIntosh (Florida Tech) plated one run with a base knock in the seventh for the Trail Blazers, but that was the only offense Adirondack mustered in the loss. Jammers southpaw Bradley Griggs (UTSA) fanned two in the ninth for the save.

Albany (31-16) 14, Onondaga (23-25) 2
The Flames scored a run in the fourth and fifth innings to take a 2-1 lead over the Dutchmen, but Albany posted a crooked number in each of the final four innings to turn the tight game into a rout. After a four-run sixth inning gave the Dutchmen a 5-2 lead, Justin Childers (Ohio Dominican) increased the gap to 9-2 on an inside-the-park grand slam. Onondaga’s Matt Carey (Ithaca) tripped while retreating into deep center field and was injured on the play, giving Childers enough time to race around the bases to complete the rare feat. Childers finished 3-for-5 with five RBIs, a triple and the home run to pace Albany. On the mound, Matt Pierce (Siena) upped his season record to a league-best 8-1 with 6.0 innings and six strikeouts.

Mohawk Valley (29-16) 11, Utica (18-30) 4
It was merely a one-run contest between the rival DiamondDawgs and Blue Sox, until Mohawk Valley scored 10 of their 11 runs in the top of the fifth inning. Alexis Monge-Rodriguez (Barry) and Russ Olive (UMass-Lowell) each had two hits in the frame, with Olive recording an RBI in his first at-bat and Monge-Rodriguez hitting a two-run double in his second time up in the inning. Olive paced all batters by finishing 4-for-6 with two RBIs and one run, while Monge-Rodriguez went 3-for-6 with a pair of runs and two RBIs. Douglas Molnar (Wagner) won his second straight start, as he struck out six and allowed four runs in 7.0 innings for the ‘Dawgs.

Glens Falls (17-32) 8, Saugerties (20-28) 1
The Dragons avoided a winless road record in 2017 by defeat the Stallions at Cantine Field on Sunday night, and will end the season 1-24 away from East Field. Ryan Beamish (Lee) got things going with a two-run home run in the top of the second, and he would post an RBI single to start the scoring in a four-run third inning. Beamish finished the night 2-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs, while Dan Lowndes (Siena), who batted one spot behind in the sixth slot, was a perfect 2-for-2 with two walks, two runs and one run batted in. Robert Paccione (LIU Post) made just his second summer start and hurled 8.0 strong innings. He allowed just one run on eight hits and three walks, while striking out seven.

Amsterdam (35-12) 17, Newark (19-31) 4
The Mohawks pounded out 17 runs on 18 hits in a lopsided victory over the Pilots at Colburn Park on Sunday night. John Valente (St. John’s) was 4-for-4 with three runs and one RBI from the lead-off spot, while Toby Welk (Penn State Berks) went 3-for-4 with a game-high four RBIs and Jake Mueller (Wake Forest) finished 3-for-5 with two RBIs and three runs scored. They helped Amsterdam take a 10-1 lead after just three innings of play. Andrew Saalfrank (Indiana) was called from the pen in the fifth and tossed 2.0 hitless innings with three strikeouts to earn the win, improving his season record to 7-0.
