Rockland County, NY (August 28, 2022) – Chris Kwitzer and Jake MacKenzie each drove in three runs as the host New York Boulders completed a sweep of their weekend three-game series with the Tri-City Valley Cats, winning 12-5 on Sunday at Clover Stadium in Pomona.

The victory left the Boulders tied with Sussex County for third place and the final playoff spot in the Frontier League's Eastern Division pending the outcome of Sunday's game between the first-place Quebec Capitales and the Miners.

The Boulders also picked up first inning RBI singles from David Vinsky and Francisco Del Valle as they quickly moved out to a 4-1 lead.

Leading 5-4 in the fifth, New York erupted for five runs - two coming on MacKenzie's single and one apiece via a double by Tucker Nathans and a single from Max Smith. The fifth run in the inning came when Gian Martellini scored on an error by Valley Cats' left fielder Joe Campagna. The rally gave the Boulders a commanding 10-4 advantage.

In the sixth, run-scoring singles from Gabriel Garcia and MacKenzie made it a 12-5 game.

Leo Pineda, the second of five New York pitchers, picked up the win and improved to 3-2 on the season.
