Phils split twi-night doubleheader with Amsterdam, 0-4, 2-0.

Amsterdam tacked on two more runs to their lead in the sixth inning of the twinbill Sunday night. Both teams failed to score with the Mohawks closing out the contest and escaping with a 4-0 victory.
Saratoga reliever Cory Kuzmik (NJIT) walked Rob Papelhouse (Brown) to start the inning. He advanced on a passed ball and a stolen base. After Tim Smith walked, Michael Seaborn (Kentucky) was inserted as a pinch hitter in the No. 9 spot.
The move paid off as Seaborn drilled a double down the left field line scoring both runners for a 4-0 lead. Kuzmik got out of the inning, hitting a batter and striking out two.

Amsterdam up 2-0 in the sixth
Amsterdam went up 2-0, taking advantage of a too well rested Saratoga reliever, Jason Downey (Marisy) in the sixth.

Brock Wright (Kentucky) led off with a single, stole second and reached third on a passed ball. Nate Lape (Marshall) sent him home with a sac fly to left.

Phillie left fielder, Mark Riffee (Virginia) charged the fly ball and fired home. Eric Walker (Oklahoma State) tried to block Wright's entry, but the runner beat the throw.
Saratoga starter Mark Lamm (Vanderbilt) kept his ERA at 0.00, giving up one unearned run over five innings. He allowed one hit, walked a batter and struck out seven.

Downey came on for one inning of work, allowing a run on one hit. Cory Kuzmik (NJIT) came on to pitch the top of the seventh.

Amsterdam starter Nick DeMidio (St. Rose) lasted three innings, walking three and striking out three. He got in trouble chasing a foul ball near the Mowhawks dugout, hitting the bench after the catch. He returned to finish out the third.

Alex DeAngelis (George Fox) came on in relief for 1 2/3 innings. He scattered three hits without incident. Rob Glowacki (Marist) sent the Phillies down 1-2-3 in the bottom of the sixth.

Mohawks up 1-0 in fourth
Amsterdam's Brock Wright (Kentucky) led off the fourth reaching on a throwing error by Saratoga third baseman Jon Nicolla (Duke). He stole second, advanced on a groundout and scored on a Ryan Gauck (Marist) RBI single to left for a 1-0 lead.
Saratoga threatened in the bottom of the inning. Bryan Rose beat out an infield single to lead off the inning. Mark Riffee (Virginia) moved him to third on a two-out single to left center, but a flyout ended the threat.

Pre-game: Saratoga's Mark Lamm (Vanderbilt) will attempt to put the Phillies on their first winning streak tonight in the twinbill versus Nick DeMidio (St. Rose).
The 6-foot-4 righthander, Rose, is 0-0 with an 0.00 ERA in five appearances, pitching eight innings. He has given up one unearned run on three hits, walking one and striking out 12. Batters are batting a paltry .107 against Lamm.
