The Albany Athletics exploded for six runs in the 5th inning to blow open a 4-2 game and go on to beat the Waterford Nationals by a 13-2 score in a game at Kelts Field in Waterford. With the win, the A's have now won 12 straight league games.    Greg Sulz and Dan Barbero each stroked 2-run doubles in a big 5th inning rally. Cam Overbaugh singled three times, scored three times and drove in the first run of the game.  Meanwhile, relievers Bryan Carr (2 IP, Win), Zach Breen (1 IP), and Chris Salamida (1 IP) threw four innings of hitless relief to hold down Waterford.   The Nationals closed a 2-0 lead to 2-1 on Nick Thomas' RBI single in the 3rd inning.  After the A's scored two runs in the 4th inning on wild pitches with second and third, Waterford responded with a solo home run from Bill Kelts in the bottom half to close to 4-2.     The Nationals then had runners on 2nd and 3rd in the bottom of the 4th but Carr came in to induce a ground ball out tag out at home then a fly out to escape the jam and hold the 4-2 lead.
