Panthers Sloppy in Baseball Losses
April 23, 2013
JAMESTOWN, N.Y. – Poor defense and wild pitching cost the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team Tuesday as the Panthers dropped a doubleheader at Jamestown Community College, losing by scores of 9-5 and 15-4. TC3 is now 5-11 in the West Division and 5-13 overall. Jamestown is 12-10 in the West Division and 13-20 overall.
The defense cost the Panthers in game one. TC3 scored four runs in the third to take a 4-2 lead, but Jamestown scored six times in the fourth to regain the lead. By the time the game ended, TC3 had committed four errors and allowed eight unearned runs. Letty McFall (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg) took the loss on the mound, despite allowing just one earned run over four innings. Alex Howland (Sandy Creek H.S./Sandy Creek) and Marcus Chestnut (Camden H.S./Camden) each went 2-for-3. Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) drove in three runs and Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk) picked up two RBI.
In game two, the defensive problems started on the mound. In four innings of work, TC3 pitchers allowed 15 runs on just eight hits, thanks largely to ten walks. Akeem Vereen (John F. Kennedy H.S./Bronx) provided a bright spot on offense, going 2-for-3 with a triple. Pfund picked up two more RBI while going 1-for-3.
TC3 hosts Jamestown Community College Thursday at 2 p.m.
