TC3 Baseball Opens Season on Road
March 19, 2014
VINELAND, N.J. – Wednesday saw the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team step on a baseball field for the first time this season, as the Panthers traveled to New Jersey to take on Cumberland County College. In addition to the home field advantage, Cumberland had the advantage of having played 15 games prior to today, winning ten of them against high level opponents. Not surprisingly, the result was a pair of losses for TC3, as Cumberland won 10-0 and 12-2. Cumberland is now 12-2 while TC3 is 0-2.
Each game was stopped after five innings due to the 10-run rule. In the opener, Davyon Dozier (Brooks Debartolo Collegiate H.S./Tampa, Fla.) had the lone hit for TC3, leading off the fourth with a single and getting stranded at second after picking up the team’s first stolen base.
In the second game, Dozier again provided offensive highlights, but he wasn’t alone. Dozier went 2-for-3 with a run scored and a run batted in. Rodney Jester (Tri-Valley H.S./Liberty) also went 2-for-3, Wilson Montalvo (Newburgh Free Academy/Bronx) drove in a run and Jeremy Fredenburg (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls) doubled while going 1-for-1 with a walk.
TC3 continues its spring break trip by playing at Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville Thursday and Friday. The Panthers are scheduled to play doubleheaders against the Division II team both days.
