Errors help Albany Dutchmen beat Saratoga Phillies

The lead was short lived, though. Park hit a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the fifth and scored on an error to put Albany ahead 9-7. Wong then highlighted the Dutchmen's four-run eighth inning with a three-run homer to seal the victory.

Carvuto, Reardon and Sharrar each had two hits to lead Saratoga's 10-hit attack. Wong and Lurie both had two hits for Albany.

Saratoga's loss to the Dutchmen came two nights after Amsterdam came to East Side Recreation Field and swept the Phillies in a doubleheader. The Mohawks (12-9) scored three runs in the top of the sixth inning to pull out a 3-2 victory in the opener, and they handled the Phillies 4-1 in the nightcap.

Tillman Pugh had the big hit for Amsterdam in the opener with a three-run homer. Adam Dimino and Miles Silverstein drove in Saratoga's two runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, and Mike Augustine added a pair of hits.

Silverstein, Pat Epps, Drew Fann and Biss Larsen had the Phillies' four hits in the nightcap."
