Coyotes shake off cold road trip and respond strong
March 10, 2015

CSN came back home looking to rebound from a mediocre 2-2 road trip and find some momentum offensively with a crucial road trip to Salt Lake on the horizon. 

By James Hernadez

Thursday night Coyote ace Phil Bickford took the mound in front of a packed house as CSN hosted its annual Board of Regents night. MLB scouts filed into Morse Stadium to see the future top ten draft pick deal and Bickford did not disappoint. He dominated from the start, overmatching batter after batter on his way to fifteen strikeouts over six innings not allowing a hit and walking just one. Phil is putting together a season for the CSN record books with a mind blowing 61 strikeout in just 30.1 innings of work which includes a 2.37 E.R.A. and a microscopic 0.86 W.H.I.P. The game was scoreless until the bottom of the seventh when pinch hitter Drew Newson came off the bench with a clutch single that scored Matt Waldren. Jose Verdugo, Matt Waldren, and Kenny Meimerstorf had consecutive RBI singles in the eighth inning extending the Coyote lead to five. Kayden Porter pitched the final three innings to earn the win for CSN in game one of the series 5-0.

Freshman Aj Jones took the mound in game two of the series looking to pitch the Coyotes to their tenth consecutive home victory. Jones was able to get through four innings allowing just two runs and keeping the team in the game until the offense got on the board. RBI singles by Jose Verdugo and Kenny Meimerstorf gave the Coyotes a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the third inning but the lead was short lived. Golden Eagles left fielder Greg Ashley singled home his second run of the game in the top half of the fourth inning, scoring Austin Geurtsen and tying the game at two. Mason Hayes clutched up in the home half of the fourth singling home Jesse Keiser and giving the Coyotes a lead they would not relinquish. Closer Josh Nurenberg protected the one run lead pitching three stellar innings of two hit baseball, striking out four and earning his team leading fourth save of the season. CSN held on to defeat USU-Eastern 3-2.

Gabe Gonzalez had his own set of scouts in the stands to observe the 6' 5 freshman in game three of the series for the Coyotes. Gonzalez breezed through the first three frames of the game but ran into some trouble in the fourth surrendering three hits, one walk and two runs in what would be his last inning of work. Left fielder Matt Waldren broke a 3-3 tie in the top of the sixth inning with a well placed single to center and scored a crucial insurance run later in the inning on a throwing error by second baseman Bryce Blackburn. Alec Hutt came into the game to pitch the final 1.2 innings of the game to earn his first win of the season, extending the Coyotes home winning streak to eleven games with a 5-3 victory.

Nevada-Reno commit Anthony Martine was hoping to rebound from a subpar performance last weekend in Colorado and pitch his Coyotes to a twelfth straight victory keeping the "Morse Magic" alive. Martine was on point all afternoon as he pounded the zone and retired the final twelve batters he faced in order to earn his third victory of the year. CSN's bats struck early and often as university of Houston commit Tyler Brown led the offensive charge with three RBI's in the game as his Coyotes struck for five runs in the first two innings of the game. Gerald Robins had a two RBI game and contributed three of the teams eleven hits as CSN rolled to a 9-1 run rule victory in the final game of the series. The Coyotes hit the road this weekend to face the Salt Lake Community College Bruins for four games beginning Friday afternoon.

Coyotes Sweep Golden Eagles, Home Win Streak 12 and Counting
March 10, 2015

CSN Coyotes continue their winning ways, taking all four games against USU Eastern Golden Eagles
By Harrison Howard/csncoyotes.com
March 10, 2015

Las Vegas, NV- The College of Southern Nevada Coyotes were looking forward to this past weekend for multiple reasons.  The Coyotes had an 8 game win streak at home and wanted to improve upon it.  More importantly, the team was thrilled to be away from the Colorado snow, and under the Las Vegas sunshine.  After splitting the series with the Colorado Northwestern Community College Spartans, the Coyotes were looking to get back on track this weekend against Utah State University Eastern Golden Eagles.  CSN had defeated USU Eastern just a few weekends ago with the final score of 10 to 2.  Projected first round draft pick Phil Bickford took the mound in game one, and looked to start things off right for the Coyotes.
Phil Bickford had complete control of all of his pitches, especially his fastball, which was topping out at 96 mph.  Through 5 innings, Bickford had not allowed a hit, and only one walk and struck out 12 batters.  The only problem was that opposing pitcher, Sean Hardman, was also throwing a no-hitter.  After back to back two out walks in the bottom of the 7th inning, second baseman Drew Newson delivered a RBI single to break the scoreless tie.  The Coyotes tacked on 4 more runs to take a 5 to 0 lead over the Golden Eagles.  Pitcher Kayden Porter, who relieved Phil Bickford after the 6th inning, entered the 9th inning without allowing a hit either.  With two outs in the top of the 9th, the combined no-hitter was broken up by pinch hitter Jordan Mellen, with a single to center field.  The Coyotes finished the 9th inning without allowing a run, finishing game one of the series with a victory.
Friday's double header had Aj Jones starting in the first game.  The Utah State University Eastern Golden Eagles took a one run lead in the 2nd inning behind a RBI single from left fielder Greg Ashley.  The Coyotes answered with back to back RBI singles by Jose Verdugo and Kenny Meimerstorf in the bottom of the 3rd inning.  Golden Eagle's left fielder, Greg Ashley, was at it again with another RBI single in the 4th inning, tying the score at 2 runs a piece.  Coyote's designated hitter, Mason Hayes, delivered a RBI single of his own in the bottom of the 4th inning to take the lead 3 to 2.  The 3 runs would be all that was needed for a 3 to 2 victory for the Coyotes. 
Game two of the double header was very interesting to say the least.  The Coyotes jumped to an early lead with 3 runs in the 2nd inning.  In the top of the 4th, a controversial no-swing call and some choice words from CSN's Head Coach Nick Garritano, led to Coach Garritano's ejection from the ball game.  The Golden Eagles scored two runs that inning, and one more in the 5th, tying the game at 3 runs apiece.  Starting left fielder Matt Waldren, broke the tie with a RBI single to center field.  Later in the inning, the Coyotes performed a perfect double steal.  Waldren scored as Tyler Brown got into a pickle between first and second base.  CSN pitcher Alec Hutt finished the 7th inning with a shut out, finishing the game with a final score of 5 to 3 in favor of the Coyotes. 
With the home win streak intact, the Coyotes were seeking a 4 game sweep over the Golden Eagles.  Starting pitcher Anthony Martine allowed two hits and one run in the 1st inning.  Besides the 1st inning, Martine didn't allow a runner on base the rest of the game.  The CSN bats came to life this game combining for 9 total runs through 7 innings, behind Tyler Brown's 3 RBIs.  The Coyotes finished the 4 game sweep of the Golden Eagles with a 9 to 1 victory.
The Coyotes have been on fire lately, winning 14 of their last 16 games, with their 12 game home win streak still in play.  The pitching staff continues to be the bright spot for the College of Southern Nevada.  But with the bats producing as much as they have been lately, this team appears as if they are ready for their deep postseason run.  The Coyotes travel to Salt Lake City, Utah looking to increase their win column against Salt Lake Community College Bruins in a 4 game series starting this upcoming Friday, March 13th.
