Baseball Faces Tough Pitching, Loses on the Road
April 3, 2019 – – The Lorain County Community College Men’s Baseball team had a tough road-trip to PA over the last two days, as they lost to CCAC South, a team they beat twice earlier this season, then fell just short in competitive games against CCAC Boyce.
LCCC was out hit in game one against CCAC South, losing by a score of 24-11. Damion Coleman (Niles/Niles McKinley), had a good day at the plate for the Commodores, going 3 for 4 with 3 RBI’s; while Jared Naida (Cleveland/Lakewood), also provided some offense going 2 for 3 with 3 RBI’s in the loss.
The Commodores fell in game two 10-0, with 8 of the runs coming in the 3rd inning. LCCC had 4 fielding errors and only mustered 5 hits in the game, with Jesse Barrios (Wooster/Home School), accounting for 3 of the hits.
Lorain had an early 4-0 lead against CCAC Boyce and Jared Naida (Cleveland/Lakewood) only allowed 1 earned run through 5 innings with 7 strikeouts, but 6 fielding errors were too much to overcome as the Commodores lost 11-5. The score was 7-5 going into the 6th when CCAC Boyce added 4 more runs putting game one out of reach. Damion Coleman went 2 for 4 in the game with an RBI.
D’aunte Bowens (Oberlin), was on the mound for the Commodores in game 2 and pitched very well, notching 6 strikeouts, but LCCC couldn’t score enough runs to give him the win. Jesse Barrios was 2 for 3 in the game and drove in the only run in the 1st inning before LCCC lost by a final score of 4-1.
“These were some tough games this week. We saw some good pitching and just made too many mistakes to bring home a victory,” said LCCC Head Coach Bill Frawley.
The Commodores host CCAC Boyce for a back-to-back matchup this Saturday, April 6, 2019, at Victory Park in North Ridgeville with first pitch in the double-header scheduled for 1 p.m.
