Newark Pilots rally to defeat Dutchmen

The visiting Newark Pilots came into Bellizzi Field at the Christian Plumeri Sports Complex on Sunday night and battled back for a 7-5 victory over the Albany Dutchmen. It was Albany’s bullpen that let them down after starter Andrew Furber (Gloucester County College) delivered an extremely solid effort.Furber tossed six innings of shutout baseball and left to a lead of 3-0. He scattered four hits and struck out two, but saw his lead evaporate in the top of the 7th inning when Newark scored five runs off of the bullpen.Taylor Alvarez (College of Charleston) was given the loss for the Dutchmen, as he struggled to find his command. On the other end, righty sidewinding starter Daniel Thorpe (Saint Joseph’s) stayed perfect on the season as he improved his record to 3-0. He worked seven innings for the Pilots, giving up three runs and striking out six. He ran into a little bit of trouble early but went on cruise control in the middle innings. Mark Scott (San Joaquin Delta) worked the ninth to earn the save for Newark.Newark was paced at the plate by Josh Perez (Mississippi College) who had three hits and an RBI. Josh Crowdus (Delta State) also had two hits and scored two runs.Albany was only given solid production at the plate by their two- and three-hole as Jack Wietlispach (Parkland) had two hits and scored two runs, while Zach Remillard (Coastal Carolina) had three hits including two big RBI doubles.Albany will play at Amsterdam tomorrow night and will next be home on Wednesday night against that same Amsterdam team.
