Mohawks stumble in Elmira, 3-1

Friday, July 25, 2014 - Updated: 9:22 AM

ELMIRA -- The Amsterdam Mohawks were shut down for eight innings by Elmira Pioneers pitcher Sam Sinnen, and Zac Bellinger's three-run home run in the fourth inning proved to be all the offense the Pioneers needed in a 3-1 win Thursday night at Dunn Field.

Sinnen shut out the Mohawks (30-10) on three hits over eight innings, striking out nine and walking three. Amsterdam scratched a run back against Blake Oyler when Alex DeBellis doubled home Tommy Kain in the top of the ninth, but Oyler induced a groundout from Joey Aiola to finish off the game and send the Mohawks to their second loss in three games.

Bellinger's three-run blast to right field was Elmira's only strike against Amsterdam starting pitcher Connor Johnstone, who was charged with three runs on five hits over five innings. Daniel Castro, Andy Ward and Joe Randall each threw a scoreless inning out of the bullpen for Amsterdam.

DeBellis and Aiola each doubled for the Mohawks, while Kain, Josh Gardiner and Jonathan Pryor collected singles.

While the Mohawks lost, the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs were swept by the Watertown Rams in a doubleheader Thursday, cutting Amsterdam's magic number to clinch the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League East Division to one with eight games left in the regular season.

The Mohawks are back in action tonight with a chance to clinch the division title in a 6:35 home game against the Albany Dutchmen, with the final fireworks display of the summer slated to follow the game.
