Saugerties ends Mohawks' eight game win streak in 4-3 victory
The Saugerties Stallions (9-9) hold of the Amsterdam Mohawks (15-3) by one run in a 4-3 home victory. The Stallions won their second game in a row after a 3-2 victory yesterday over the Glens Falls Dragons. This loss ends an eight game win streak for the Mohawks. Jeff Hayner got his first win of the season in a one inning relief appearance while Dale Stanavich gets the loss. The Stallions' Henry Funaro got his fifth save of the season in a six out save appearance.
The Stallions were the first team to score a run, something they hadn't done in nine games. Hayden Travinski lead off the bottom of the second with a triple off the right-center field wall before eventually scoring on a Max Cotier infield single. Jake Skrine would add on another run in the second on an RBI single to make it a 2-0 ball game.
The Mohawks would score one run in the third and fourth innings to tie the game up before the Stallions regained the lead in the bottom of the fourth on a Dylan Lifreri RBI single.
The game would remain 3-2 until the sixth when a Max Cotier throwing error would allow Sam Zayicek to score from third base and tie up the ball game.
The Stallions responded in the same inning with a Tyler Kelder double down the left field line to score Jake Skrine from first.
Henry Funaro was called on to close out the game for the Stallions defensively, being called upon in the eighth inning and getting the save as a result.
The Stallions play again on Tuesday at home against the Oneonta Outlaws. Amsterdam resumes action on Tuesday at home as well when they take on the Albany Dutchmen.
