Amsterdam 4, Oneonta 1

Holy Cross’ Christopher Baillargeon went two-for-three with a triple on Monday night for the Oneonta Outlaws, but they could only muster one run against the defending PGCBL champions, losing to the Amsterdam Mohawks, 4-1.

Baillargeon had the only RBI for the Outlaws (1-2), on his triple in the ninth that scored Molloy’s Gavin McAlonie. Meanwhile, Albany’s Dylan Banner turned in a good effort at the plate for the Mohawks, going three-for-four with a solo home run in the fifth.

St. Peters’ Matthew Dubois gave up all four Amsterdam (4-0) runs in five innings of work, earning him the loss for Oneonta. The Amsterdam pitching staff combined for ten strikeouts, earning Utica native Brandon Peterson the win in his debut game for the Mohawks. Peterson pitched five innings and got four of those strikeouts, allowing just two hits.

Boonville’s Phillips, Utica’s McClure named East Division Players of the Week

The Boonville Lumberjacks’ Jacob Phillips and the Utica Blue Sox’ Norris McClure were named the league’s East Division Players of the Week for the season’s first week.

In four games and 17 at-bats for Utica, McClure has managed a .647 batting average, good enough to be in fifth place in the league. McClure has also managed four RBI and six stolen bases, putting him in fourth and third in the league, respectively. McClure went a perfect five-for-five on Saturday, June 3 against Oneonta, and was responsible for four of Utica’s six runs in the 7-6 extra-inning loss.

In his debut for Boonville, Jacob Phillips struck out eight Watertown Rapids in a 9-1 win on Thursday, June 1. His eight strikeouts currently put him in a tie for the league lead with Batavia’s Julian Pichardo. Phillips only gave up one earned run and just two hits in the win over Watertown.

The two East Division Players of the Week will play each other in a 10:30 am matinee at Donovan Stadium on Tuesday, June 6.

In an opening-day matinee, the Sherrill Silversmiths kicked off their 2023 campaign by scoring four runs in both the eighth and ninth innings to complete a seven-run comeback against the Rochester Ridgemen, 8-7.

The Silversmiths had to overcome four errors on the day but were also able to take advantage of a grand slam by Rhode Island College’s Daniel Cascio, which proved to be the game-winner for Sherrill (1-0).  Rome native Caleb Miller also picked up two RBI for the Silversmiths, who trailed 4-0 after four innings and 7-0 after seven.

Stevenson product Jason Labrador struck out three and allowed four runs in four innings of work. Despite giving up the other three, Willamette’s Conor Wolf was able to allow one baserunner in the last two innings to pick up the win for Sherrill. Satoru Awai got the loss for Rochester (0-1).
