    Former DiamondDawg D.J. Hoagboon started an eighth-inning Saturday in the Amsterdam Mohawks’ 8-4 win over Mohawk Valley at Shuttleworth Park.
    The Mohawks had taken a 4-3 lead with a run in the bottom of the seventh inning. Hoagboon, who batted .276 in Little Falls last summer and signed on with Amsterdam Wednesday for this year, started the eighth inning with an opposite-field double against Raymond Morton. The Mohawks would score four runs in the inning without another hit. They took advantage of two errors, two walks, a passed ball and Chase Green’s steal of home.
    The Mohawks had lost leads of 1-0 and 3-1 earlier in the game. Union College’s Tyler Heck led off the fifth inning with a home run to put the DiamondDawgs on the board. Heck, who finished the game with three hits, drove in another run with a seventh-inning single and came around to score on David Del Grande’s sacrifice fly.
    Green reached base on an error at the start of the seventh inning, advanced on a ground ball and a single and scored the go-ahead run on a sacrifice fly by Guiseppe Pappacio,
    Aaron Casper was charged with an unearned run in one inning of relief and took the loss in relief of Mohawk Valley starter Eddie Fitzpatrick.
    Matt Gage was the winner in relief for Amsterdam.
    Green went hitless for the Mohawks but scored three runs. Ed Charlton had two hits and scored twice, Zak Colby added two hits and Pappacio drove in two runs.
    Joe Carcone had two hits for the DiamondDawgs. Heck scored three of the Mohawk Valley runs and drove in two.
    Both Nethaway brothers went hitless in their first head-to-head meeting of the season. Josh Nethaway, Hoagboon’s teammate at SUNY-Albany, went 0-for-4 and struck out twice but delivered the first Amsterdam run with a sacrifice fly in the third inning. Herkimer County Community College’s Luke Nethaway went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout and was charged with an error for Mohawk Valley.
    The DiamondDawgs play at home Sunday and Monday. Sunday’s game against the Albany Dutchmen begins at 5:05 p.m. The Cooperstown Hawkeyes visit Veterans Memorial Park Monday.
