Lyle Homers But Mohawks Outlast Red Wings 6-5

For the second straight night, the Geneva Red Wings played in a game where the deciding run was scored in the 9th inning or later. In this back and forth contest, that was in favor of the Amsterdam Mohawks.

The first two batters of the game for the Wings both scored as a result of a Jake Lyle (Volunteer State CC) home run. Amsterdam would answer with a pair of RBI singles in the bottom half of the 2nd.

Geneva would score single runs again in the third, fourth, and sixth innings. Amsterdam would answer right back with single run frames of their own in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings.

The scoring would hold off then until the ninth inning. A lead off single and a pair of bunt base hits would load the bases for the Mohawks in the bottom half of the frame. The game was ended by a score of 6-5 on a walk off single to the left side.

Red Wings’ starter Jared Kacso (NJIT) took a no decision, throwing 5.0 innings while giving up 4. He finished with a pair of strikeouts. Reliever Ben Terwillinger (University of Maine) tossed a pair of innings, surrendering only a run in the contest. Andy Reed (Elmira College) was tabbed with the loss, throwing an inning plus on the night.

Jake Lyle would finish 1-3 with a pair of RBIs. Geneva outfielder Trustin Riley (University of Tampa) raised his season average to .455 with a 2-4 night, while snagging an RBI in the process. Joseph Tassin (Bossier Paris C.C.) would also finish 2-4 on the evening, pushing his season batting average to .450.

The Wings return home to McDonough Park tomorrow night to take on the Newark Pilots. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 P.M.
