Mohawks fall short at Adirondack

By Jon Sargalis

Box Score     ScoreCast

Boonville, N.Y. - Trey Wingenter (Auburn) pitched perhaps his best game of the summer on Friday night in Adirondack. Unfortunately one bad pitch in the second inning gave the Trail Blazers all the offence they would need as they held on to defeat the Mohawks 3-2.

The Trail Blazers scored all three of their runs in the second inning as Chris Divarco singled up the middle and Mike Parsons reach base due to an error on third basemen Devin Wenzel (Cincinnatti). Alex Simone stepped in and sat on a first pitch fastball by Wingenter that sailed over the right field fence.

That proved to be all the runs that Adirondack would need, and all that they would get. Wingenter (1-3) went 7 strong innings, allowing just 3 hits and 1 walk while collecting 8 strikeouts. Zach Quayle (Ave Maria) came on in the eighth and worked a spotless frame for the tribe. Kyle Barrett (Kentucky) lead the offence for the Mohawks going 3-for-5 with a run scored.

The Mohawks were unable to put anything up against Adirondack's starter Joe Borelli, who pitched 5 innings allowing 4 hits and 1 walk with 1 punch-out. Amsterdam was able to make things interesting in the eighth and ninth innings.

In the eighth off reliver Spencer Bivens, Kyle Barrett scored on a wild pitch and Ronnie Bernick scored on an error after Adirondack's third basemen threw the ball away on a John Nogowski (Florida State) grounder. With two on, one out and Josh Gardiner representing the tying run on third base was left stranded as Dylan Smith (Auburn) struck out, and Jordan Ebert (Auburn) flew out to left.

The ninth inning saw the Mohawks load the bases with nobody out, but failed to cash in the run as Bernick struck out, Barrett flied out and Gardiner struck out to end the game.

The loss takes the Mohawks to 15-14 on the season, as the team will travel to Utica on Saturday to take on the Brewers in a 7:05 start.
