Dutchmen hand Blue Sox Their Ninth Straight Loss

The Albany Dutchmen came out on top 7-5 in a close game with the Utica Blue

Sox at Donovan Stadium on Friday night. The Dutchmen outhit the Sox 11-8 and

led the entire game.

Albany grabbed an early 5-0 lead in the top of the third thanks to five hits in the

inning. The Sox would battle back adding one run in the third and three more in

the fifth to cut the Dutchmen lead to 5-4. However, the Dutchmen were able to

add two more the rest of the way, as the Sox were only able to add one and

the final ended up 7-5 in Albany’s favor. Utica has now lost nine games in a row

and two to Albany over the last three days.

Jared Tietgen (Rio Hondo College) took the loss only managing two and two-thirds

innings before exiting due to an injury. Tietgen allowed four runs on three hits and four walks.

Adam Elliot (Louisville) got the win, pitching three innings in relief allowing three runs on one hit and two

walks. J.D. Mundt (Louisville) was credited with the save pitching the bottom of

the ninth and shutting the Sox down in order to close out the game.

With the win, Albany improves to 7-2 on the season. The Dutchmen host Glens

Falls in a double header on Saturday, the first game is set at 3:00PM.

With the loss, Utica has now lost nine straight to fall to 3-9 on the season. The

Sox travel to Onondaga on Saturday for a 7:00PM game.
