Commodore Arthur Sinclair commanded the U.S.S. General Pike.

From the (Canadian) War of 1812 website:

 "...Commander William Mulcaster used HMS Royal George to cover his commodore, preventing Chauncey’s General Pike from making its killing strike and allowing Yeo time to recover and begin his mad dash toward the head of the lake."
