LITTLE FALLS — Alfredo Delgado slugged a three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs rallied to defeat the Watertown Rapids, 6-3, on Tuesday night in a Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League game at Veterans Memorial Park.

The DiamondDawgs (11-11) tied the game at 3-3 with a run in the eighth inning on a bases-loaded walk from Vincenzo Castronovo.

Watertown had built a 2-0 lead as Hazel Martinez singled in a run in the first inning and David Stirpe reached on an error and then scored on an error in the second. The Rapids took a 3-2 lead in the sixth inning on a home run from Dixon Black.
