AMSTERDAM — The Geneva Red Wings trailed only once in their Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League contest against Amsterdam Thursday.
It was the one and only time the Red Wings wish they hadn’t been on the wrong end of the score.
Brendan Coffey’s bases-loaded single in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Mohawks a 6-5 triumph over Geneva at Shuttleworth Park.
The Red Wings (3-2) led on three occasions, including a 2-0 edge just two batters in the game. After Matt Chamberlain (New Haven) drew a leadoff walk, Jake Lyle (Volunteer State CC) belted a two-run homer.
After Amsterdam tied the score in the second, Justin Barr (Central Alabama CC) delivered a run-scoring groundout in the top of the third. Langston Livingston (St. Joseph’s) scored a fourth-inning run on a throwing error, boosting the lead to 4-2.
Tied 4-4 in the sixth, Trustin Riley (Tampa) belted an RBI double. However, Liam Wilson’s solo homer in the bottom of the inning knotted the score a third time.
