Muckdogs Drop Exhibition Game To Destroyers

Batavia’s losing streak extends to four as the Mansfield Destroyers, a team in the NYCBL, beat them 13-3 Monday night. The game will not count towards the Muckdogs PGCBL record due to it being a crossover game between two different summer baseball leagues in New York.

The Muckdogs came out of the gates hot at home with a two run bottom of the first after
hits by outfielders Spencer Marcus and Abner Benitez. Mansfield, who was playing their first
game of the entire season, tied the game in the third due to back to back doubles from Villanova
catcher John Whooley and left fielder Tyler Castelli.

Batavia would answer in the bottom of the frame as Charlie Szykowny would reach via a
throwing error by second basemen Randall Hiem that would score Ethan Frasca to take the lead.
As starting pitcher Kyle Kohlhafer’s day game to close after allowing four hits and one earned
run in four innings, thing went south for the Muckdogs in the fifth.

As we have seen multiple times so far this year, opponents have put up crooked numbers
against relief pitchers due to walking too many base runners. Mansfield would score five funs in
the fifth to take the lead, and tack on four more in the seventh to increase their their lead to 11-3.

In those two blow up innings, Batavia allowed nine runs on just four hits and two errors. The
Destroyers lead would grow to double digits after right fielder Theron Schilling’s RBI double was
Mansfields tenth hit of the ballgame.

Marcus would pick up Batavia’s only other hit of the contest with an opposite field single
to right field in the fifth. Even with only three total hits, Batavia could not cash in one of their
eight runners left on base that reached via walks, hit by pitch, and errors.

The Mansfield pitching staff of Vaughn, Shimp, Higgerson, and Kahn struck out 11 Muckdogs in the outing as well.

The Muckdogs will play home yet again tomorrow against the Elmira Pionners who have
won four straight games after losing to the Dogs 7-0 on opening night. It will be “Guaranteed
