Pilots Defeat Red Wings for First Win of 2018

June 8, 2018 - Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) - Newark Pilots News Release

The bats came alive for the Newark Pilots as they tallied 15 hits in a 12-2 win over the Geneva Red Wings. Allen Murphy captured the win in his first start on the mound, allowing 1 ER in 4.2 IP

It was the catcher Alexander Hernandez who led the Pilots offensive attack, knocking in 5 RBI's on 3 hits. Newark's very own Ben Cowles was also strong for the Pilots, driving in 3 runs on 2 hits.

The Pilots jumped in front early in this one and never looked back. After 4 innings, the Pilots led 5-0 before the Red Wings would get one back in the top half of the 5th.

Scoring runs in 6 out of the 8 innings, Newark never allowed Geneva a chance to get back into the ball game. It was only on tuesday that we saw the Pilots squander a 5-0 lead to the Red Wings, going on to lose 6-5 in 10 innings. It was a different story tonight however as the Pilots got a steady mix of strong batting and pitching.

The Pilots take to the road for their next 4 games, starting tomorrow with a double header with the Elmira Pioneers @ Dunn Field.
