Strong Pitching Leads Panthers to Sweep of Broome

Thursday, April 28, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College Baseball

Behind strong pitching from a pair of former high school teammates, the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team swept a doubleheader from SUNY Broome Thursday, 5-0 and 14-4. By sweeping Broome for the second time in two days, Tompkins Cortland improves to 18-15 overall and 11-9 in the West Division. Broome drops to 3-19 overall and 3-17 in the division.

GAME 1: Tompkins Cortland 5, Broome 0

Tompkins Cortland pitcher Cameron Lueder (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg) had his best outing of the season on the mound. The lefty struck went the distance, recording seven k’s, including striking out the side in the third inning. He allowed just two hits and only one runner reached second base during the entire game, and that came as a result of an error with two outs in the fifth.

Offensively, the Panthers gave Lueder all the support he would need in the first inning, scoring just two batters into the game. Leadoff man Kavon Ruffin (Bullard Havens Tech/Bridgeport, Conn,) opened the top of the first with a double, and then moved to third on a passed ball. Anthony Ferrezza (East Islip H.S./East Islip) drove him in with a sacrifice fly, putting the Panthers up 1-0. The lead moved to 2-0 in the third with Ferrezza reaching with a single, advancing on a passed ball, and then coming in on a single by Ty Christian (Altmar-Parish-Williamstown H.S./Williamstown). Laz Moralez (Green Run H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) drove in two runs in the fourth to make the score 4-0, and Ferrezza closed the scoring with an RBI single in the fifth.

Andrew Babcock (Cortland H.S./Cortland) finished game one 3-for-3 with a double and a run scored. Ferrezza finished 2-for-3 with two RBI while Ruffin went 2-for-4 with two runs scored.

GAME 2: Tompkins Cortland 14, Broome 4

After a scoreless first, the offense got going in the second. Matt Van Allen (West Genesee H.S./Camillus) started with a single and stolen base. The next two batters were retired before a walk and a dropped third strike loaded the bases for the number nine hitter, Justin Perez (RHAM/Hebron, Conn.). Perez came through, lacing a double on the first pitch he saw, clearing the bases and giving the Panthers a 3-0 lead. Perez later came in to score on a Ferrezza single, making it 4-0 in the middle of the second.

In the third, Van Allen again led off with a single, and again was still on second base with two outs. This time Babcock drove him in with a double, making it 5-0. After a walk, Perez came through again, hitting another double to drive in two more runs and push the score to 7-0. Ruffin followed with another double, driving in Perez with another run.

The lead stood at 8-0 until the bottom of the fourth, when a pair of errors opened the door for a grand slam homer for Broome, cutting the Tompkins Cortland lead to 8-4. A scoreless fifth followed before the Panthers added three runs in each of the sixth and seventh innings to make the final margin 14-4.

After game one’s gem, the Panthers received more strong pitching in game two. Starter Jeff Cotterill (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg), a high school teammate of game-one pitcher Lueder, went six innings to earn the win. He retired the leadoff batter in each inning, and struck six while allowing no earned runs. Jared Coffey (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls) pitched a perfect seventh to close out of the win.

Offensively the Panthers combined to hit six doubles. Perez had two doubles while driving in five runs and Ruffin had two doubles as part of a 3-for-4, three RBI effort. For the second straight game, Babcock reached base each time up, scoring three times while going 1-for-1 with two walks and a hit by pitch.

Tompkins Cortland hosts Erie Community College for a doubleheader Saturday at 1 p.m.

Ryan Stevens

Ryan Stevens returns for his second season as head baseball coach. Stevens, who was an assistant at TC3 from 2006 to 2010, took over as head coach for the 2014-15 academic year.

Stevens has built an impressive resume since starting his coaching career at TC3. While on the Dryden campus he was the Panthers’ pitching coach and recruiting coordinator, helping build a brand new program into a playoff team. His time at the College coincides with the best four-year stretch in the program’s history, culminating with an NJCAA regional playoff appearance in his final season.

In 2008 he entered the world of professional baseball, taking a job with the Texarkana Gunslingers of the Independent Professional Continental Baseball league. After two years and a league championship with the Gunslingers, Stevens took his first head coaching job with the Alpine Cowboys of the Pecos League, an independent professional league based in Texas with teams through the southwest. In five seasons as the manager of the Cowboys, Stevens has led the team to the postseason each year, capturing two league championships and posting an overall record of 208-119. He was named the Pecos League Manager of the Year, and has helped more than 50 players earn promotions to higher levels of professional baseball, including one, Jonathan Edwards, who is on a major league roster (Texas Rangers, pitcher). Two other of his players signed contracts with Major League affiliates: David Valesente (Pittsburgh Pirates organization, catcher) and Andrew Wall (Washington Nationals organization, pitcher).

Stevens, who also worked as an associate scout in the West Texas region for the Washington Nationals, served as an assistant coach at Ithaca College during the 2013-14 school year. He is a Dryden native, graduating from Dryden High before playing collegiate baseball at SUNY Cobleskill and Frostburg State University (Maryland).

Walk-Off Win for Panthers

Sunday, May 04, 2014

The final home game of the season provided plenty of excitement for the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team as the Panthers rallied for a 5-4, walk-off win over Finger Lakes Community College Sunday. The visiting Lakers won the opening game of the doubleheader, 7-5, meaning TC3’s record is now 6-17 in Region III West Division and 6-22 overall. Finger Lakes ends the day 12-10 in division and 18-19 overall.

In game one TC3 came up short with its late-inning rally. The Panthers trailed 6-2 after five innings, but scored twice in the sixth to make it a two-run game. Finger Lakes scored in the seventh, but TC3 scored a run in the bottom of the seventh, and had two runners on base when the final out was recorded. Steve Tatich (Owego Free Academy/Owego) went 2-for-3 with two RBI and Aaron Hitt (McGraw H.S./McGraw) went 2-for-3 with a double.

Game two again saw Finger Lakes take the lead, scoring three in the top of the second and another in the fourth. The Panthers plated single runs in the second, third, fourth, and fifth to tie the score at 4-4. After a scoreless sixth, Finger Lakes had the potential go-ahead run thrown out at home to end the top of the seventh, setting the stage for the dramatic finish.

In the bottom of the seventh, sophomore Brandon Pollack (Groton H.S./Groton) led off by drawing a walk. Pinch-runner Bryan Joseph (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) stole second with one out, and moved to third on a single by Rodney Jester (Tri-Valley H.S./Liberty). Davyon Dozier (Brooks Debartolo Collegiate H.S./Tampa, Fla.) came through in the clutch, lifting a sacrifice fly to score Joseph with the game winner.

Malik Fogg (Mount Vernon H.S./Mount Vernon) had a big game at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI. Brian Pfund (East Hampton H.S./Montauk) went 2-for-4. Jordan Buckley (Tuxedo H.S./Greenwood Lake) earned the win, pitching two scoreless innings in relief, striking out two.

TC3 enters the final week of the season, with doubleheaders at Corning Community College on Tuesday and SUNY Broome Thursday.
