Mohawks Score Early and Hold On for Win
Saugerties, N.Y. - The Saugerties Stallions (5-6) scored one run in the bottom of the ninth to make things interesting, but in the end the Amsterdam Mohawks (7-2) held on for the 4-2 win at Cantine Field on Friday night.
David Harrison (N.C. State) made his first appearance for the Mohawks and pitched 5 innings in dominant fashion. Nolen Hester (Wofford) led off the game for the Stallions with a single before Harrison retired the next 15 batters.
Harrison finished the night with just one hit allowed and five strikeouts and didn't allow another batter after Hester reached.
Trent Schoeberl (Minnesota) made his second start of the season for the Stallions, going five innings and allowing two runs. The high school senior allowed eight hits but looked more comfortable on the mound this time around.
Amsterdam started the scoring in the top of the 4th as Rook Ellington (Kentucky) singled to center before advancing all the way to third on two passed balls. Julio Cortez (South Florida) then stepped to the plate and singled to right for his fifth RBI of the season.
Amsterdam added another run in the top of the 5th to make it 2-0 on a J.D. Mundy (Radford) double to left, which allowed Geordan Blanton (Marshall) to score. Mundy picked up his team- leading 10th RBI of the season.
Each team scored a run in the 7th as Mitch Hartigan (FAU) singled to score Michael Turconi (Wake Forest) in the top half of the inning, while a Dillon Lifrieri (Arkansas) single in the bottom half brought home Tyler Kelder (St. Bonaventure).
The Stallions, who lead the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) in errors with 35, recorded their first game of the season with none.
David Harrison picked up the win while Schoeberl is now 0-2 on the year. The Stallions head to Elmira for two games this weekend while the Mohawks host Utica on Saturday before heading out to Watertown on Sunday.
