Dragons beat Amsterdam, move to 5-1 at home

GLENS FALLS – Everything fell into place for the Glens Falls Dragons on Sunday night, but they were at home, where good things tend to happen.

The Dragons made good use of 10 hits and four Amsterdam errors to post a 12-4 victory at East Field. Glens Falls put away the game with a five-run seventh inning and got good pitching from Alex Phillips and Tom Taplin.

Thus continued the give-and-take of the Dragons’ rather strange existence so far. They are 5-1 at East Field but 0-7 on the road.

“Two different teams have showed up,” head coach Cameron Curler said. “We’ve got our East Field team and our road team. Every time we’ve come off a loss, we’ve answered at home. Now it’s time to see if we can find the same answer on the road.”

The Dragons play Monday and Tuesday away from home, then play five of the next seven games at East Field.

The Dragons overcame a 2-0 deficit with three runs in the third, helped by a couple of errors. They added three more in the fourth, an inning highlighted by Dan Lowndes’ two-run single. Anthony Vaglica finished the game 2 for 5 with two runs scored and Phoenix Hernandez went 2 for 5.

Phillips went six innings for the win, with two of his four runs being unearned. Taplin pitched three scoreless innings for the save.

If the Dragons can play like that on the road, they’ll be a contender.

“I know we’re capable,” Curler said. “I feel really good about the things we can do; it’s just a matter of putting it all together. Once we get rolling, I’m excited about what we can do.”
