The Albany Athletics used a late game rally to overcome a 4-0 deficit and overtake the Capital City Kings 6-4 for its 11th straight victory.    Nate Novak hit a three-run homer to tie the game 4-4 in the 5th inning then hit a go-ahead RBI groundout in the 6th inning to put the A's up 5-4, just after RJ Pingitore led off the inning with a pinch-hit double. Later in the inning, Albany added another run on a double steal to extend its lead to 6-4.  Cam Overbaugh and Greg Sulz each collected a pair of hits for the Athletics who saw four relief pitchers (Carson Stewart, Jack Mahoney, Dino Ferrarese, Zach Breen) combine for 3 innings, 0 hits, and 0 runs. Mahoney got the win and Breen relieved Ferrarese in the 7th with two outs and two runners on to strike out the final batter and earn the save.    Meanwhile, Capital City built a 4-0 lead when Jacob Wilson hit a 2-run single in the 2nd inning. Joe Borowski followed with a solo homer in the 3rd inning and Peter O'Toole singled in a run three batters later. Kings righthander Quinn MacDonald had held the A's to one hit heading into the 5th but allowed the A's to get back in the game with five hits in the 5th inning alone.
