The Albany Dutchmen tried to keep pace with the Amsterdam Mohawks, scoring runs in 4 of the innings the Mohawks did, but Amsterdam's offense was too much to handle as the Dutchmen fell by a score of 8-5.

The Mohawks took a 2-0 lead in the first inning as Zach Gardiner drove in Gage Miller with a single and Hunter Thomas reached on an error that allowed Cam Love to score.

In the second Brett Coker reached on a fielder’s choice as Jacob Hand scored, but Albany answered back as Matt Bergevin scored on a Ty Gallagher sac-fly to make it 3-1 Amsterdam.

In the fourth, Brett drove in Cam Love with a single, then Zach Gardiner singled and Brett Coker scored on an error. Albany answered back with an Anthony Raimo, Jr. single that scored Nick Schwartz to make it 5-2 Mohawks.

In the sixth, Cade Bush tried to avoid getting hit by the pitch and got a bat on the ball that ended up in a fielder’s choice that drove in Cam Love. Ian Perutz followed with a double that drove in Connor Moore.

In the bottom of the inning Anthony Raimo, Jr. drove in Nick Schwartz on a groundout as the Mohawks lead 7-4 at the end of the inning. In the seventh, each team scored a run as Cam Love drove in Gage Miller on a groundout and David Silva, Jr. drove in Max Gebauer with a double to make it 8-5.

Cam Love went 4-for-6 with a double, an RBI and 3 runs scored. Nolan Lamere picked up the win for the second straight day to improve to 3-0 and Conner Whittaker earned his 5th save.

Amsterdam improved to 37-6-1 and will host the Utica Blue Sox on Thursday, while the Dutchmen fell to 20-23 and travel to Oneonta Thursday for a pivotal doubleheader with the Outlaws.
