Mohawks Rally In 9th, Fall In 15th To Dutchmen

Box Score

The Mohawks dropped to 6-2 as they fell to the Albany Dutchmen by a score of 6-5 in 15 innings Thursday night.

The Mohawks struggled to get things going offensively all night long against Dutchmen starter Ian Murphy who allowed just three hits and struck out six in five innings of work.

Amsterdam fell behind 3-0 in the sixth when Dutchmen third baseman Parker Noland hit a two-run homerun over the right field fence.

The Mohawks trailed 4-0 heading into the top of the eighth inning where they would finally get on the board with a J.D. Mundy RBI double. In the ninth a series of walks, a hit by pitch, and two errors allowed the Mohawks to tie the game at four sending it to extras.

The Mohawks would have their chances in extra innings including having the bases loaded with no outs in the 13th inning but they were unable to put the game away.

The Dutchmen scored twice in the top of the 15th to take a 6-4 lead. Mitch Hartigan would homer in the bottom half of the inning, but the Mohawks rally came up one run short.
