    The hot-hitting Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs piled up another double-digit score in Monday’s 15-5 rout of the Elmira Pioneers.
    The DiamondDawgs’ season-high fourth consecutive victory also pushed the team back to the .500 mark — 13-13 — for the first time since they were 8-8 on June 25. Mohawk Valley pounded 15 hits against four Elmira pitchers to reach double figures for the fifth consecutive game and seventh out of eight; the DiamondDawgs have scored 52 runs during their current winning streak with at least 11 in each game.
    Chris Cruz led Monday’s offensive onslaught. The Cornell University outfielder had two home runs and a bases-loaded double in the first five innings as he went 3-for-6 with five runs batted in and three runs scored.
    The DiamondDawgs took control of the game in the third inning. After each team scored a run in the first and Elmira answered Mohawk Valley’s four in the top of the second with three in the bottom, the DiamondDawgs came back with three more runs in the third followed by two each in  the fourth and fifth to take a 12-4 lead at Dunn Field.
    Jack Morrow led off the third with a single, advanced on an error and scored on a hit by Eric Helmrich. Mark Stuckey also singed and Joe Carcone drew a walk to load the bases with two outs. Tyler Heck continued his recent torrid hitting with a single that brought home two more Mohawk Valley runs.
    Clinton’s Heck extended his hitting streak to eight games Monday. The Union College senior-to-be is 17-for-40 with nine runs batted in and 17 runs scored during his hit streak, all since taking over the leadoff spot for the DiamondDawgs.
    Eddie Sorondo drove in two runs with a double in the fourth inning and Cruz cracked his second home run with Heck on base again in the fifth.
    Morrow, Helmrich, Stuckey, Sorondo and Carcone each had two hits for Mohawk Valley Monday. Helmrich scored three runs. Morrow drove in two while Heck, Stuckey and Carcone each scored twice.
    The beneficiary of Monday’s offensive output was starting pitcher Eddie Fitzpatrick who earned his first win in four decisions. Fitzpatrick allowed four runs on five hits and seven walks over six innings. Raymond Morton earned a save with three scoreless innings of relief.
    Tyler McIntyre had a three-run home run for the Pioneers. Starting pitcher Carson Bryant allowed 10 runs — nine earned — in 3 2/3 innings.
    The DiamondDawgs travel to Albany Wednesday for a 5:05 p.m. doubleheader against the Dutchmen. They play at home Thursday against Glens Falls.
