Phillies at Albany Dutchmen earn first NYCBL win.

The Dutchmen earned their first win of the year, 5-3 over the Phillies at home Saturday night.

Story link to follow shortly.

For Albany, Wheaton College right-handed sidearmer jon Shepard on in relief.
Jack Dilday went three innings giving up an unearned run. He didn't give up a hit, He walked three, struck out eight, hit a batter and threw three wild pitches.

No live internet feed tonight on Teamline, the responsibility of the home team. Tonight it was a personnel issue, not technology, so I hope the blog has helped.
I'm only updating scoring changes on my Blackberry due to lack of power for the portable press box. Will be rectified on Sunday and expect new, interactive technology for Monday's doubleheader!

Saratoga scratched out a run in the top of the seventh on four miscues.
Miles Silverstein reached when his groundball to short was thrown down the line and the first baseman was pulled off the bag and missed swiping the runner. Silverstein then moved bags on three wild pitches from previous lights out Albany closer Jack Dilday, cutting the lead, 5-3.

Close the book on Saratoga's Shippee. He went six innings, giving up five runs all earned on seven hits. He walked six batters, struck out one and hit one.
Lefty Cade Chambers (Walters CC) comes on in relief in the bottom of the seventh.

Albany adds to lead, up 5-2
The Dutchmen tacked on two runs on three hits in the bottom of the fifth.
Shane Davis reached on a one-out single to left and went to second when Ryan Mallory was hit by a pitch.
Brad Steinbach drove him in with a single that was just over the top of the shortstops glove. Mallory scored on Sean Munley's sacrifice fly to right. Dutchmen up, 5-2.
Jack Dilday (Tufts) comes on in relief of Albany starter Ben Klimash. The book on Klimash, 5 innings pitched, two runs given up, both earned on six hits. He walked three and struck out six.

Saratoga cuts into lead, 3-2.
Pat Epps led off the fourth with a high chopper over the mound and moved over on a Miles Silverstein single to right. Pat Reardon drove him in with a hot shot down the first base line that short-hopped the infielder, cutting the lead, 3-2.

Albany up 3-1 through three.
Saratoga's Josh Shippee has shown that his pick-off move is sharp, but both times the runner advanced to second.

Albany adds another, up 3-1.
Kevin McCall reached on a two-out walk and stole second on a pick-off attempt. He scored easily when Jarred Jimenez drilled a Josh Shippee offering to the centerfield fence as the Dutchmen went up, 3-1. Shane Davis tried to add some damage with a drive to the left field warning track.

Bottom first, Albany answers, 2-1.
The man behind the plate is consistent, as Saratoga starter Josh Shippee was the victim of a small strike zone.
Kevin McCall was forced in on a walk as he reached on a one-out walk. Jared Jimenez walked and Shane Davis dropped a bloop single in front of the centerfielder to load the bases. Ryan Mallory walked him in to tie the game at one.
Brad Steinbach singled to center to drive in Jimenez for the 2-1 Albany lead.

Top of first, Phils up 1-0.
Phillies up
Bryan Rose turned a one-out walk into the first run of the game, moving around the horn on Matt Carvutto's single, Mike Augustine walked and Pat Epps drove him in with an RBI walk, the third free pass of the inning by Albaný starter Ben Klimash.

It's early in the season, but the Albany Dutchmen are leading the East Division in the best looking support staff department. Stop by Bleecker Stadium to check it out.

The Saratoga Phillies and Albany Dutchmen are looking to get underway early, moving up their game time from 7:30 to 7 pm. Good for deadline purposes.
