Mohawks Drop Two To Dutchmen

It was a tough day for the Mohawks who dropped two to the Albany Dutchmen on Tuesday. After the first game of a previous doubleheader with Albany was suspended on 7/14, the Mohawks and Dutchmen would start the day by finishing the suspended game. Albany would win by a score of 4-3. View the game recap from the July 14th game here. Following that, the Mohawks and Dutchmen squared off again, this time in a nine-inning contest with Albany pulling out on top 8-6.

Dalton Reese (Tennessee) provided most of the runs for the Mohawks on a three-run homerun in the bottom of the first. He would finish the day 1-3 with the homerun. The Mohawks tacked on two more runs on Matt Padre (Manhattan) and Mitch Hartigan (Florida Atlantic) singles, however, the Mohawks’ plan of attack was ultimately thwarted on Tuesday night.

With the Mohawks leading 5-2 in the top of the sixth, and David Harrison (NC State) cruising, it looked like the Mohawks might get the better of the Dutchmen. Unfortunately, that was not the case. After walking both Mitchell Henshaw (St. Johns) and Luke Franzoni (Xavier), Brandon Disonell (HS Sr., Stony Brook) replaced Harrison. On a seemingly innocent throw over by Disonell, a balk was called moving both runner into scoring position before Ben Metzinger (Louisville) would clear the bases with a left-center double, cutting the lead to one. Both those runs would be charged to Harrison who would end up with 5.1 innings pitched, five strikeouts, and four earned runs. Aaron Roose (Azusa Pacific) would follow up the double by Metzinger with a single, scoring Metzinger and tying the game.

The newly acquired Trey Alderman (Marshall) would be the third Mohawks pitcher that inning, stepping in for Disonell and subsequently surrendering a two-run homerun to Parker Noland (HS Sr., Vanderbilt) putting the Dutchmen ahead 7-5.

The five-run inning was all the Dutchmen would need, receiving three scoreless innings of relief from Aaron Dona (St. Thomas Aquinas) and prevailing by a score of 8-6.

The Mohawks are back in action tonight at Rao Family Stadium against the Saugerties Stallions.
