Score: 2-1 Amsterdam
Phils notes: Saratoga starter Miles Mikolas may have taken umbrage to Rowland’s earlier home run and giving up the fourth inning offering to Mark Onarati for the only two hits of the contest for Amsterdam.
With Rowland up with two outs, Mikolas’s first offering sailed high and over the head of Rowland, reaching 91 on the radar gun. After a slow curve he threw it inside on Rowland’s hands, hitting the bat just above Rowland’s grip for a foul ball at 90 mph. Another curve followed with, you guessed it, a 92 mph fastball on Rowland’s hands that he fouled away.
The home plate umpire took time between innings to chat with Saratoga skipper Kevin Graber, maybe about the weather….

Score: Still tied 1-1

Things are about to get underway here at the new, improved and majestic Shuttleworth Park in Amsterdam.

General manager Brian Spagnola and the organization have continued to invest in the gem of the Mohawk Valley, complete with its newly completed party deck, private lounge along with newly enhanced facilities (bathrooms) and grandstands.
