Staff Report

The Amsterdam Mohawks have a huge number of alumni currently making their names in professional baseball, including a local product who is rising through the San Francisco Giants’ minor league ranks:
Broadalbin-Perth High School graduate Matt Gage made his debut Sunday for the Sacramento River Cats, the Triple-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants.
After going 4-4 with a 2.88 earned run average in 13 starts for the Double-A Richmond Flying Squirrels — a stint that saw him earn an Eastern League All-Star berth and EL Pitcher of the Week honors for his penultimate week with the team — Gage made his Pacific Coast League debut on three days rest, allowing three earned runs on eight hits in five innings in a losing effort against the Fresno Grizzlies.
The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Gage — a 2011 B-P graduate who pitched for the Mohawks in 2012 and was selected by the Giants in the 10th round of the 2014 MLB Draft out of Siena College — struck out one and didn’t walk a batter in his first appearance for Sacramento.
