Thursday, July 15th (Glens Falls, NY) — The Albany Dutchmen defeated the Glens Falls Dragons 13-6 on the road Thursday night to move to 17-16 on the year. 


It all got started for the Dutchmen in the top of the second inning. Ty Gallagher (Herkimer) drove in Logan Beard (Louisville) to open the scoring at 1-0 in Albany’s favor. 


The Dragons would even things up right away however. Evan Keegan (Castleton) scored on a wild pitch to tie the game at 1-1. 


From that point on it was all Dutchmen. In the third inning, Beard came up with the bases loaded and cleared them with one swing. Driving a double that brought home three runs to make the score 4-1. 


Albany would score another three runs in the fourth inning as well. Ryan McGee (Siena) and Evan Fox (Stony Brook) each picked up RBI-singles and Johnny Decker (Stony Brook) earned an RBI with a bases loaded walk to make the score 7-1. 


Glens Falls would start to crawl back at that point. Jack Stolper (Middlebury) drove in Keegan for the first run of the bottom half of the fourth. Peter O’Toole (Dartmouth) would then score on a throw down to second base to make the score 7-3. 


The Dragons would tack on another in the sixth inning. O’Toole picked up an RBI on a single to bring the score 7-4.


The Dutchmen would then explode for six runs in the top of the seventh. The highlight of the inning was a bases clearing double by Gallagher that drove in another three runs. 


McGee would also pick up another RBI single followed by a two-RBI double from Will Stroud (Azusa Pacific). The Dutchmen led 13-4 after the top of the seventh. 


Glens Falls would grab one more in the bottom half of the seventh. Andrew Gough (Middlebury) drove in Joseph Rende (Rochester) on a groundout to make the score 13-5.
