Mohawks take over sole possession of first place

Thursday, July 03, 2014 - Updated: 10:25 AM

LITTLE FALLS -- The red-hot Amsterdam Mohawks took over sole possession of first place in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League East Division for the first time in 2014 at the exact midway point of their season, as four pitchers combined on a one-hitter Wednesday in a 3-2 win over the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs in Little Falls.

Zack Brown threw the first four innings for Amsterdam, allowing a pair of unearned runs on just one hit -- a pinch hit single by Greg Fazio in the fourth inning. Thomas Hackimer fired the next three innings, recording eight of his nine outs via strikeout, before Daniel Castro and Zach Breen each pitched perfect innings to close out Amsterdam's 15th win in its last 16 games to improve to 17-7 at the halfway point of the season.

In total, the four Amsterdam pitchers combined for 16 strikeouts.

The Mohawks plated two runs in the third inning on RBI hits by Josh Gardiner and John Razzino, with Brendan Tracy adding an RBI single in the fourth to make it 3-0 before Mohawk Valley got its lone runs of the game on a pair of wild pitches.

Gardiner went 2-for-2 with a walk for Amsterdam, but left the game after a single in the fifth inning.

JaVon Shelby, coming off a 3-for-3 performance in a 12-6 win over the Glens Falls Golden Eagles on Tuesday night at Shuttleworth Park, and Thomas Kain added two hits apiece for the Mohawks, with Shelby also contributing a pair of stolen bases and scoring a run.

Amsterdam returns to action tonight with a 6:35 p.m. home game against the Adirondack Trail Blazers at Shuttleworth Park, to be followed by a fireworks display.
