June 12, 2017

All-MSAC player Charlie Hammel

All-MSAC player Garrett Hunter

Two Tompkins Cortland Community College players have earned spots on the Mid-State Athletic Conference baseball all-conference team. In voting by the coaches from the six MSAC programs, Charlie Hammel (Rush-Henrietta H.S./Rochester) and Garrett Hunter (Cox H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) were selected for the 15-player team.

Hammel was second on the team with a .397 batting average and his .489 on-base percentage was second on the team and the third best in program history. He also was second on the team with four doubles and 19 runs scored.

Hunter led the team with a .419 batting average, the fourth best season average in program history. He set a new Panthers record with five hits in one game and his .490 on-base percentage is the second best in program history.

Panthers Split Doubleheader to Close Season

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team closed the 2017 season with a doubleheader split with Corning Community College Thursday. The Panthers won the opener 4-3 in extra innings before dropping game two 9-4. Tompkins Cortland ends the season with a record of 15-22 overall and 10-17 in the West Division, good for sixth place in the nine-team division. Corning ends the year 8-30 overall and 5-25 and in eighth place in the West Division.

Starting pitcher Matt Morgan (McGraw H.S./McGraw) threw well enough to win in the opener, but didn’t factor in the decision. The sophomore allowed just two runs over the first seven innings, but was on the hook as the Panthers trailed 2-1 heading to the bottom of the seventh inning. In the seventh, Laz Moralez (Green Run H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) led off with a single, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Alex Evans (Stillwater H.S./Stillwater), and came in to score on a double by Justin Perez (RHAM/Hebron, Conn.). With the score tied at 2-2, the Panthers stranded Perez on third to end the seventh and send the game to extra innings.

In the top of the eighth, Corning regained the lead and threatened to put up a crooked number. Morgan hit the first batter of the inning before turning the ball over to relief pitcher Ryan Farley (Cornwall H.S./Cornwall). The next two batters had singles, but Farley was able to limit the damage to a single run by striking out one batter and getting the final two outs in the infield.

Charlie Hammel (Rush-Henrietta H.S./Rochester) opened the bottom of the eighth with a single, and when Garrett Hunter (Cox H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) reached on an error, the Panthers had the winning runs on base with no outs. The tying run came in on a ground out and, after a fly out, Manny Rojas (Santo Domingo, D.R.) delivered a clutch, two-out RBI to drive in Hunter with the game winner.

Hunter and Chris Miccuci (Auburn H.S./Auburn) each had two hits in the win.

Corning never trailed in game two, taking early lead with single runs in the second and third and then stretching the lead with four in the fifth. A three-run seventh sealed the win for the visitors because, despite scoring in four different innings, Tompkins Cortland could only plate a single run each time.

Hunter and Miccuci each had another multi-hit game, with Hunter going 3-for-3 and Miccuci going 2-for-4 with a double. Hammel went 2-for-3 three in the nightcap.

Ryan Stevens

Head Coach

Ryan Stevens

Ryan Stevens has finished two seasons as head baseball coach. Stevens, who was an assistant at Tompkins Cortland from 2006 to 2010, took over as head coach for the 2014-15 academic year. His teams have shown steady progress and the program is poised to take the next step.

Stevens has built an impressive resume since starting his coaching career during his first stint at Tompkins Cortland. 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).

He played professionally for two seasons under Coach Stevens with the Alpine Cowboys and coached at Cox High in Virginia Beach before joining the Panthers staff.

Charlie Hammel (Rush-Henrietta H.S./Rochester) opened the bottom of the eighth with a single, and when Garrett Hunter (Cox H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) reached on an error, the Panthers had the winning runs on base with no outs. The tying run came in on a ground out and, after a fly out, Manny Rojas (Santo Domingo, D.R.) delivered a clutch, two-out RBI to drive in Hunter with the game winner.

Hunter and Chris Miccuci (Auburn H.S./Auburn) each had two hits in the win.

Corning never trailed in game two, taking early lead with single runs in the second and third and then stretching the lead with four in the fifth. A three-run seventh sealed the win for the visitors because, despite scoring in four different innings, Tompkins Cortland could only plate a single run each time.

Hunter and Miccuci each had another multi-hit game, with Hunter going 3-for-3 and Miccuci going 2-for-4 with a double. Hammel went 2-for-3 three in the nightcap.


Late Rally Gives Panthers Split with Erie

Tuesday, May 09, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

A late rally in game two gave the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team a doubleheader split with Erie Community College Tuesday. The Panthers lost the opener 12-7 before winning the nightcap 4-3. Tompkins Cortland is now 14-21 overall and 9-16 in the West Division; Erie is 23-25 overall and 15-13 in the West Division.

After losing a sloppy game one that saw the Panthers commit eight errors, the visitors were much sharper in game two. Derek Beeching (Brookfield H.S./Waterville) was solid on the mound. The freshman allowed just two runs in the third inning, ending his day with a line of six innings, three hits allowed, and five strikeouts. Trailing 2-0 entering the sixth, the Panthers rallied with Garrett Hunter (Cox H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) driving in a pair to tie the game at 2-2. After Beeching set the Kats down in order in the bottom of the sixth, the game went to the seventh tied at 2-2.

In the seventh, the Panthers started the rally with two outs and nobody on base. Manny Rojas (Santo Domingo, D.R.) singled and Kavon Ruffin (Bullard Havens Tech/Bridgeport, Conn.), and between the two of them stole four bases to score the go-ahead run. Chris Miccuci (Auburn H.S./Auburn) singled to drive in Ruffin with a big insurance run, putting the Panthers ahead 4-2. In the bottom of the seventh, Erie took advantage of a Tompkins Cortland error to score a run and put the tying run on base, but Ryan Farley (Cornwall H.S./Cornwall) came in out of the bullpen to face one batter, inducing a double play to seal the win.

Beeching earned the win with Farley picking up the save. Rojas led the offense by going 2-for-3 with two runs scored and three stolen bases.

Tompkins Cortland closes the season Thursday at home against Corning Community College.

Panthers Drop Two to Onondaga

Saturday, April 29, 2017

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team saw its three-game winning streak end Saturday as Onondaga Community College took both ends of a doubleheader Saturday, 5-2 and 13-1. Tompkins Cortland is now 11-17 overall and 6-12 in the West Division. Onondaga improves to 27-11 overall and 19-7 in the West Division.

Onondaga opened the doubleheader by scoring runs in the first four innings while taking a 5-1 lead. The Panthers cut the lead to 5-2 in the sixth, but couldn’t get any closer. Christian Castro (North Arlington H.S./Arlington, N.J.) and Justin Perez (RHAM/Hebron, Conn.) each went 2-for-3 at the plate, with Castro ripping a double and Perez driving in a run. Starting pitcher Nikolai Grihin (Homer H.S./Homer) limited the damage to single runs in each of the first three innings before allowing a pair of runs in the fourth. He worked four innings, allowing six hits and four earned runs while getting tagged with the loss.

The visiting Lazers started game two the same as game one, scoring in their first at bat. An inning later, the Panthers used a two-out rally to score a run and tie the game at 1-1. The third inning saw the Panthers commit two errors that led to two runs and a 3-1 lead for Onondaga. When the Panthers were unable to answer in the third or fourth, Onondaga stretched the lead with a big seven-run fifth inning. The visitor’s final runs came in the seventh, again aided by a pair of Tompkins Cortland errors.

The Panthers were limited to two hits in the second game – singles by Kavon Ruffin (Bullard Havens Tech/Bridgeport, Conn.) and Eric Arcangel (Mott Haven H.S./Bronx). Gary Whitney (Prattsburgh H.S./Prattsburgh) took the loss, allowing five earned runs while striking out three over 4.1 innings.

Panthers Rally to Sweep DH

Thursday, April 27, 2017

Late rallies in both ends of the doubleheader made a winner of the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team Thursday as the Panthers swept Jamestown Community College 8-5 and 5-4. Tompkins Cortland is now 11-15 overall and 6-10 in the West Division. Jamestown improves to 9-13 overall and 9-11 in the West Division.

The start was rough in game one, with Jamestown taking advantage of two errors to score four times in the top of the first. A two-out, two-run homer by Christian Castro (North Arlington H.S./Arlington, N.J.) cut the deficit in half in the bottom of the first, but Jamestown tacked another run on in the second to lead 5-2. In the bottom of the second, it was Tompkins Cortland’s chance to take advantage of errors, using two Jamestown miscues to help score three runs and tie the score at 5-5 after two innings. From that point on, the starting pitcher Derek Beeching (Brookfield H.S./Waterville) settled down, allowing just two base runners over the next three innings. In the bottom of the fifth, Chris Miccuci (Auburn H.S./Auburn) led off with a single, advanced to third on a wild pitch and passed ball, and then came in to score the go-ahead run on a sacrifice fly by Castro. Two more Panthers scored in the fifth, making the score 8-5. Manny Rojas (Bronx) came on in relief and pitched two scoreless innings to secure the win.

Game two again saw Jamestown strike first, scoring in the top of the first inning. This time the Panthers tied the score in the bottom of the first and then moved ahead with a solo home run by Justin Perez (RHAM/Hebron, Conn.) in the bottom of the second. Another run in the third made the lead 3-1, but two more scoreless innings, Jamestown came back with three runs in the top of the sixth to move ahead 4-3. In the bottom of the sixth, Garrett Hunter (Cox H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) and Laz Moralez (Green Run H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) each singled to start the rally. One out later, Eric Arcangel (Bronx) tied the game with a single to score Hunter. When Rojas followed with a sacrifice fly scoring Moralez, the Panthers had recaptured the lead at 5-4. Ryan Farley (Cornwall H.S./Cornwall) made the run stand, closing out the gam a perfect seventh inning.

Charlie Hammel (Rush-Henrietta H.S./Rochester) finished the day going 3-for-5 at the plate with a double, one RBI, and three runs scored. Hunter ended up 3-for-6 with two RBI and two runs scored.

Panthers Drop Two to Nation's #6

Sunday, April 23, 2017

For the second straight day, the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team played well, but not quite well enough to upset the #6-ranked team in the nation. Playing at Niagara County Community College on Sunday, the Panthers lost by scores of 4-0 and 3-0. Tompkins Cortland is now 8-14 overall and 3-9 in the West Division. Niagara improves to 26-6 overall and 13-0 in the West Division.

Derek Beeching (Brookfield H.S./Waterville) was the hard-luck loser in game one. The righty threw four innings, allowing four runs, all unearned. Offensively the Panthers failed to come up with a clutch hit, scattering eight hits and two walks over seven innings without scoring a run. Eric Arcangel (Bronx) was the lone Panther with multiple hits, going 2-for-3 on the day.

Game two again saw strong pitching go to waste, as four Panthers combined to allow just three hits and one earned run, with starter Nikolai Grihin (Homer H.S./Homer) after allowing two unearned runs over the first three innings. It was more than enough for the Thunderwolves as Niagara pitching overmatched the Panthers in game two. Tompkins Cortland batters managed just one hit – a double by Charlie Hammel (Rush-Henrietta H.S./Rochester) – while striking out 10 times.

Tompkins Cortland looks to get back on track this week against Jamestown Community College, with a home doubleheader on Tuesday and a road doubleheader on Thursday.

Panthers Swept by Nation's #6-Ranked Team

Saturday, April 22, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

Hosting the #6-ranked team in the nation Saturday, the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team got a pair of strong pitching performances, but little else as the Panthers were swept by Niagara County Community College 4-1 and 5-2. Tompkins Cortland is now 8-12 overall and 3-7 in the West Division. Niagara improves to 24-6 overall and 11-0 in the West Division.

Matt Morgan (McGraw H.S./McGraw) took the ball in the opener, and he was sharp. Niagara only had one baserunner in the first two innings, and that was erased when catcher Garrett Hunter (Cox H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) threw him out trying to steal. Niagara threatened in the third, but Morgan worked out of trouble to keep the visitors off the board. Meanwhile, the Panthers were struggling at the plate. The first time through the lineup, eight of the nine Panthers struck out, and the only one that didn’t strike out drew a walk and was promptly picked off first. In the fourth, Niagara put together back-to-back double to score the game’s first run, but Morgan limited the damage by stranding a runner at third base. After a perfect fifth, Niagara put together three straight hits to open the sixth, eventually scoring three runs to lead 4-0. In the bottom of the frame the Panthers finally got on the board, taking advantage of an error, groundout, single, and wild pitch to make it 4-1. The seventh saw Niagara threaten, but again Morgan stepped up, stranding a runner at third base for the second time. The bottom of the seventh saw the Panthers go down in order with two strikeouts and fly out.

Morgan finished allowing three earned runs on eight hits. He struck out one and walked one, but came out on the short end because the offense struggled, managing just two hits while striking out 13 times.

The strong pitching continued on both sides in game two. Gary Whitney (Prattsburgh H.S./Prattsburgh) took the mound for the Panthers, and despite having baserunners each inning, tossed a complete game. He allowed earned runs in the second and third innings, but was hurt by three unearned runs in the fourth as the Panthers committed four errors in the inning. Like the first game, the Panthers couldn’t provide enough support, but unlike the first game, the Panthers put runners on base each inning. They broke through in the third with a double by Christian Castro (North Arlington H.S./Arlington, N.J.) scoring Hunter. The second run came in the sixth, as the team parlayed a walk, two wild pitches, and an error into a run to cut the deficit to 5-2. In both the sixth and seventh, the Panthers brought the tying run to the plate, but in each inning the rally was snuffed out.

Eight different Panthers had a hit in game two, with Castro picking up the lone extra base hit and the lone RBI of the day.

Niagara and Tompkins Cortland face off again Sunday on Niagara’s campus in Sanborn.

Panthers Roll in Record-Setting Sweep

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

If a team can mix good pitching and great hitting, it’s going to be tough to beat. Playing at Corning Community College on Tuesday, the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team got exactly that combination while posting wins of 7-2 and 17-6. The wins improve the Panthers to 8-10 overall and 3-5 in the West Division. Corning drops to 5-15 overall and 2-10 in the West Division.

The good pitching came from Curtis Wilk (Cortland H.S./Cortland) in game one, and it was better than good. The freshman improved to 3-1 on the season by throwing a complete-game two hitter, allowing just one earned run and striking out five. His teammate made him a winner by turning 11 hits into seven runs. Garrett Hunter (Cox H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) led the way with the first part of what would be a great day, going 4-for-4 with five RBI. Charlie Hammel (Rush-Henrietta H.S./Rochester) and Sage Pesesky (Thomas A. Edison H.S./Elmira) each had two hits in the opener.

Game two saw the entire team erupt, as the Panthers rapped out a team-record 24 hits. With the score tied at 6-6 after three innings, Tompkins Cortland scored 11 runs over the last four innings to run away with the win.

Hunter finished off his historic day, going 5-for-5 with a pair of doubles, becoming the first Panther to collect five hits in a single game. Christian Castro (North Arlington H.S./Arlington, N.J.) went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer. Hammel and Justin Perez (RHAM/Hebron, Conn.) also went 3-for-5, with Perez adding three RBI.

Matt Morgan (McGraw H.S./McGraw) was the beneficiary, earning his second win of the year by tossing four innings. Ryan Farley (Cornwall H.S./Cornwall) picked up a save with three innings of work.

He allowed three runs over five innings, and was made a winner when the Panthers came back from down 3-0 with two runs in the fourth and two more in the fifth. Manny Rojas (Santo Domingo, D.R.) came on in the sixth was perfect while recording the final six outs and earning his first save.

Charlie Hammel (Rush-Henrietta H.S./Rochester) went 2-for-3 and drove in the game winner. Andrew Babcock (Cortland H.S./Cortland) went 1-for-3 with a RBI-double. Sage Pesesky (Thomas A. Edison H.S./Elmira) and Christian Castro (North Arlington H.S./Arlington, N.J.) each had a hit and RBI for the winners.

The nightcap saw the visiting Cougars take advantage of two errors by the Panthers to score seven runs. Tompkins Cortland rallied for four runs in the fourth, but had no answer when Genesee tacked on three in fifth, two in the sixth, and six more in the seventh.

The Panthers combined for four hits, with Garrett Hunter (Cox H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) driving in two runs with a double in the fourth inning. Matt Morgan (McGraw H.S./McGraw) took the loss on the mound, getting knocked out in the third inning despite allowing only two earned runs.


Panthers Drop Home Pair to Erie

Tompkins Cortland Community College

The West Division schedule got off to a bad start for the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team as the Panthers dropped a home doubleheader to Erie Community College Sunday. The 14-2 and 8-1 losses drop Tompkins Cortland’s overall record to 5-6. Erie improves to 10-13 overall and 4-2 in the West Division.

Not much went right for the home team in game one as Erie jumped ahead with three in the first. The Panthers plated a run in the bottom of the first, but Erie got it back in the second and blew it open with three in the fourth and fifth innings. After the Panthers scored once in the bottom of the fifth to make it 10-2, Erie added four runs in the sixth to end the game. Sage Pesesky (Thomas A. Edison H.S./Elmira) went 1-for-4 with a double and RBI. Chris Miccuci (Auburn H.S./Auburn) went 1-for-3 with a double and run scored. Matt Morgan (McGraw H.S./McGraw) started and took the loss on the mound.

Game two started much better for the home team, with pitcher Curtis Wilk (Cortland H.S./Cortland) setting the Kats down in order in the top of the first. In the bottom of the frame, Miccuci drew a lead-off walk, moved to second on a wild pitch and eventually scored on a single by Laz Moralez (Green Run H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.). The 1-0 lead held until the third, when Erie took advantage of a Panthers’ error to score four runs and take a 4-1 lead. Offensively, the third inning marked the start of a string five straight innings where the Panthers failed to put a runner in scoring position, with three of those innings seeing the Panthers set down in order. Erie tacked on three runs in the fourth and one more in the sixth to make the final 8-1.

Wilk took the loss in game two after four innings of work. Moralez, Andrew Babcock (Cortland H.S./Cortland), and Eric Arcangel (Bronx) were the only Panthers to get a hit in game two, with Moralez and Babcock the only ones to record a hit in each game.

The Panthers play at Genesee Community College Tuesday before returning home to host the Cougars on Thursday.

Panthers Complete Sweep with Walk Off

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

A walk-off RBI single by Alex Evans (Stillwater H.S./Stillwater) in the bottom of the seventh inning of game two gave the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team a doubleheader sweep of Jefferson Community College Wednesday. Playing at Hoy Field on the Cornell University campus, Tompkins Cortland took game one 4-3 before winning the nightcap 6-5. The Panthers are now 5-4 while Jefferson falls to 0-4.

Both games provided plenty of excitement. In the opener, Jefferson took leads of 1-0 and 2-1, but both times the Panthers answered to tie the game. In the bottom of the fourth the Panthers finally took the lead, with Chris Miccuci (Auburn H.S./Auburn) driving in Joel Potter (Dryden H.S./Dryden) with two outs to make the score 3-2. A triple by Andrew Babcock (Cortland H.S./Cortland) to start the bottom of the fifth led to what proved to be an important insurance run, making the score 4-2 heading into the sixth.

In the sixth starter Matt Morgan (McGraw H.S./McGraw) turned the ball over the bullpen after a solid five innings of work. Derek Beeching (Brookfield H.S./Waterville) worked a scoreless sixth to set things up for closer Justin Barber (Brookfield H.S./Waterville) working with a two-run lead, Barber got two quick outs before allowing back-to-back singles. A balk plated a run and moved the potential tying run to third, but Barber was able to induce an infield pop out to end the game.

Morgan earned the win, allowing two earned runs while striking out six. Babcock’s triple was the lone extra-base hit of the game for the Panthers, as the winners played opportunistic baseball: three of the four runs came with two-outs.

Given the drama of game one, it should have come as no surprise that the result of game two would come down to the final batter. But it didn’t seem like it would early on.

In the top of the first inning, Jefferson took advantage of a hit batter, a walk, a triple, and a groundout to score three runs. A single by the next batter kept the Cannoneers on the attack, but a big double play turned by shortstop Manny Rojas (Santo Domingo, D.R.) and second baseman Justin Perez (RHAM/Hebron, Conn.) kept the damage to just three runs. In the bottom of the first, the first two Panthers struck out before a huge two-out rally. A single by Charlie Hammel (Rush-Henrietta H.S./Rochester) started the rally, followed by a hit batter and a RBI single by Garrett Hunter (Cox H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) made the score 3-1. After another single loaded the bases, Rojas came through with a long drive to the right-center gap, clearing the bases and giving the Panthers a 4-3 lead. After the rocky first, both starting pitchers settled down. From the second through fifth innings, Panthers starter Curtis Wilk (Cortland H.S./Cortland) cruised, striking out six and only allowing one runner to reach second base. For Jefferson, their starter worked in and out of trouble, stranding six Panthers on the bases over three innings. Tompkins Cortland finally pushed a cross another run in the fifth to make the lead 5-3. In the sixth, Wilk recorded the first two outs before hitting a batter and giving up an RBI double that forced him from the game. With the potential tying run on second base, Ryan Farley (Cornwall H.S./Cornwall) came in got the last out on a pop up, ending the threat and preserving the 5-4 lead. After the Panthers again put a runner on base but couldn’t score in the bottom of the sixth, the game moved to the final inning. A lead-off single worked couple with a walk and another single helped move the tying run across the plate before a ground out and a strike out ended the Jefferson rally and set the stage for the day’s final dramatics.

The bottom of the inning started with Benedy Santos (Bronx) opened the inning by working a walk. A pair of wild pitches moved him to third, and after a strikeout, Evans came up as a pinch hitter. The sophomore came through, driving a 1-1 pitch over the left fielders head and scoring Santos with the game winner.

Wilk finished his day with 5.2 innings of work, striking out six and allowing four earned runs. Barber was credited with the win after Evans’ clutch hit. Hammel led he way at the plate going 3-for-4. Hunter and Rojas each finished 2-for-4 in game two.

After the win it was announced that Thursday’s scheduled game at Ithaca College has been postponed, leaving Tuesday at Finger Lakes Community College as the next game on the schedule.

Panthers End Spring Break Trip

Thursday, March 23, 2017

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team wrapped up its annual Spring Break trip Thursday, dropping a 12-2 decision to Suffolk County Community College. The Panthers return home with a record of 3-4.

The game started well, with Tompkins Cortland scoring twice in the first and holding a 2-0 lead into the second. Suffolk got on the board with three runs in the bottom of the second before blowing it open with six in the fourth. A three-run fourth made the score 12-2. After the two-run first, the Panthers failed to get a baserunner over the next four innings. After a scoreless fifth, the game ended due to the mercy rule.

The Panthers were limited to just three hits, with Charlie Hammel (Rush-Henrietta H.S./Rochester), Collin Pickert (McGraw H.S./McGraw), and Kavon Ruffin (Bullard Havens Tech/Bridgeport, Conn.) each going 1-for-2.

The Panthers return to Tompkins County to prepare for the Region III opener against Jefferson Community College next week.


Panthers Win Two on Wednesday

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Day three of the Spring Break trip was a good one for the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team as the Panthers won two games on Wednesday. Both games were shortened due to the run-rule, with Tompkins Cortland beating Monroe College JV 16-2 in the first game and then beating Borough of Manhattan Community College 10-0 in the second game. The wins even the Panthers season record at 3-3.

Against Monroe, the Panthers took advantage of control issues for the Mustangs. Tompkins Cortland scored 16 runs on just six hits, thanks to 13 walks issued by Monroe pitchers. The Panthers first three hitters combined to score 10 runs despite recording only one hit among them. Derek Beeching (Brookfield H.S./Waterville) was the beneficiary of the run support, and he made the most of it. The freshman pitcher tossed all five innings for his first win, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out seven.

The second game featured another standout pitching performance to go along with plenty of offense. Chris Miccuci (Auburn H.S./Auburn) set the tone from the leadoff spot, going 2-for-2 and scoring three runs. Manny Rojas (Santo Domingo, D.R.) finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and Laz Moralez (Green Run H.S./Virginia Beach, Va.) tripled and drove in two runs. The 10 runs were more than enough for pitcher Curtis Wilk (Cortland H.S./Cortland), who was strong in his collegiate debut on the mound. The freshman allowed just one hit over five innings – a two-out single in the first inning. He struck out eight in the complete game, and capped his dominating performance by retiring the last nine batters he faced in order.

The Panthers close out the Spring Break trip Thursday with a single game against Suffolk County Community College.
