    Keegan Long, the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League’s co-Pitcher of the Week, struck out 10 batters over six innings Saturday and the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs defeated Adirondack’s Trail Blazers 10-4 for their third win in three trips to Boonville.
    The DiamondDawgs scored first in the second inning and added six runs in the third. They led 8-0 before Riley Moonan’s two-run home run ended Long’s 13-inning scoreless streak.
    Long allowed only the two runs on six hits and did not walk a batter. Troy Applin pitched the seventh and eighth innings for Mohawk Valley and Taylor Wright finished with a scoreless ninth.
    Landon Thibodeaux walked, stole two bases and scored on Brendan Butler’s wild pitch in the second inning.
    The top of the third started with six consecutive singles by David Peretti, Casey Rodrigue, Jordan Serena, Dalton Herrington, Thibodeaux and Joey Tracy. Herrington’s hit drove in two runs for the DiamondDawgs while Thibodeaux and Tracy each had an RBI. The first out of the inning came on a sacrifice fly by Garrett Pierce. Brett Zaziski drove in the sixth run with Mohawk Valley’s seventh hit in the inning. The Trail Blazers got out of the inning with a double play.
    Butler had held the DiamondDawgs hitless in the first two innings and did so again in the fourth. In the fifth, Herrington singled, stole second and third, and scored on another hit by Tracy.
    The Diamonddawgs tacked on two extra runs in the ninth inning to help ensure their eighth win in 10 games away from Veterans Memorial Park. Mohawk Valley owns the PGCBL’s best road record.
    Zaziski matched Herrington and Tracy with two hits for the DiamondDawgs. Herrington raised his league-leading stolen base total to 22.
    Moonan had three of Adirondack’s seven hits and scored two runs. Luke Emling had a two-run home run in the eighth inning.
    With the win, Mohawk Valley has matched its season-high with three in a row, all on the road. The 10 runs scored matched another season-high Mohawk Valley had set six days earlier in Watertown.
    The DiamondDawgs are home Sunday for a 5:05 p.m. game against Amsterdam.
