Saturday, June 26th (GUILDERLAND, NY)-- The Albany Dutchmen dominated the Glens Falls Dragons by a score of 13-2. Albany was brilliant on the mound, in the batters box and on the basepaths all night long.

The Dutchmen bats quickly helped out Amoroso in the bottom of the first, as Mike Handal (Fairfield), Ryan McGee (Siena) and Will Stroud (Azusa Pacific) all reached on singles as the first three batters in the Dutchmen order. Adam Zebrowski (St. John Fisher) picked up the first night of the RBI on a walk, Isaac Humphrey (Louisville) barrelled an RBI single, and Zebrowski scored on a wild pitch.
