Mohawks Split Doubleheader With Outlaws

Box Score Game 1
Box Score Game 2
It was a tale of two different stories at Rao Family Stadium Friday. The Amsterdam Mohawks and the Oneonta Outlaws duked it out in two seven inning games, the Mohawks winning the first one 6-3, but falling in the second 5-1.
The first game featured another solid pitching performance. Nick Massa (Manhattan) took the hill for the Mohawks and scattered just two runs on six hits in 5.1 innings. The Mohawk offense, as we’ve seen all year, used the long all to power past Oneonta.
J.D Mundy (Radford), who had been sidelined for a back injury the past few games, came back and drove one to left centerfield for a little welcome back celebration in the bottom of the first.
Not to be outdone, Matt Padre (Manhattan) and Johnny Decker (Stony Brook) would provide a little power of their own, going back-to-back in the bottom of the fourth. First, Matt Padre cleared the bases with a grand slam and then Johnny Decker would follow him up with a solo shot to left.
Game two was a different story. Oneonta started the scoring off early, scoring two off of David Harrison (NC State) in the top of the first. The game remained 2-1 for most of the game. Dave Yankowski (Canisius) took the bump for Oneonta and would shut down the most prolific lineup in the PGCBL, throwing six innings, allowing one run on four hits and striking out five.
Oneonta would tack on three more in the top of the sixth to put the game out of reach. For the first time in a long time, the Mohawks lineup did not look like the behemoth we have seen all season.
Amsterdam and Oneonta are back at it on Saturday, this time at Damaschke Field in Oneonta, with each team vying for the “series” win.
