JCC Gets Split At Westmoreland County

YOUNGWOOD, Pa. – Jamestown Community College’s bats came alive on Tuesday as the baseball team split a doubleheader with Westmoreland County CC by winning the first game, 12-5, in nine innings and losing the nightcap, 7-6, to move to 2-7 for the season.

The Jayhawks, who had been shut out three of their last four games, took the first game with an eight-run outburst in the ninth inning after tying it up at 4-4 with a three-run seventh.

Kenny Millan swung the big bat for the Jayhawks with five RBIs on four hits while scoring twice. He had two triples with one coming from each side of the plate.

Christian VanNote had two RBIs with a triple, Marcelo Parker added an RBI single and Josh Allan an RBI double for JCC.

Pitching-wise, Hunter Zimmer got the win with two innings of scoreless relief preceded by starter Jose Corrales with three innings of work and four strikeouts and Parker with four innings. Neither pitcher allowed an earned run.

In the second game, JCC rallied for two runs in the seventh, but fell short by a run.

Bram Johnson, Cody Matheson and Parker smashed two hits with Parker and Mattison hitting doubles while Rich Allen also contributed a double.

Lyle Howard and Steve Sattz pitched for Jamestown with Howard working four innings and Sattz three innings. Howard fanned five and walked one in his mound tenure.

”We could have won both games, but we made a couple of mistakes,” said JCC coach Dick Adams. ”I was happy to see us score 18 runs in the two games as I don’t think we had that many runs in our previous seven games.”

JCC returns to the road with a game Wednesday at Butler County CC.
