Cody Smith struck out six and walked two in a seven-hitter for his first pitching victory this season. He improved to 1-5.
Day and Bryce Anglin each had two hits for Cooperstown, which received two runs apiece from Lotze, Brendan O’Reilly and Ryan Hanahan. Day also drove in two runs.
The second game was scoreless until the last inning.
O’Reilly reached base on a throwing error to lead off, then moved to second on O’Reilly’s sacrifice bunt. A throwing error was charged to reliever and losing pitcher Zach Merciez on the play, which resulted in runners at second and third for the Hawkeyes.
Anglin followed with a two-run double to left field but later ended Cooperstown’s at-bats when he was thrown out at home on a double-steal attempt.
The Golden Eagles rallied in the bottom frame, producing a run on a walk and two singles. But Glens Falls stranded the tying run at third when winning pitcher Jack Stover got Kyle Holder to line out to shortstop for the final out.
Stover (3-2) struck out six and worked around four hits and four walks for the complete-game victory.
The Hawkeyes, who are last in the East Division at 15-24, were off Friday. They’ll visit Adirondack for a doubleheader beginning at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
