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).

Panthers Close Out Season with Sweep of Onondaga

Saturday, May 02, 2009

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team ended the season with a sweep of Mid-State Athletic Conference rival Onondaga Community College Saturday. The Panthers rallied in game one for an 8-7 win before taking the nightcap 4-1. TC3 ends the year with an overall record of 13-20 overall, 9-11 in Region III and 6-3 in the MSAC. Onondaga is 8-21 overall, 8-17 in region and 3-7 in conference.
 
TC3 took the early lead in game one before Onondaga erupted for five runs in the fifth to lead 5-1. The Panthers answered in the bottom of the fifth, scoring four times to tie the game at 5-5. The visitors reclaimed the lead in the sixth with two runs, but TC3 again responded, this time scoring three runs in the bottom of the sixth to take a 9-8 lead. Pitcher Tatsuya Hagiwara (Nagano, Japan) came in and pitched a perfect seventh to close out the win.
 
Justin Stanton (Moravia H.S./Locke) earned the win in relief, tossing 1 and two thirds of an inning, allowing two runs on two hits. Jarrod Surine (Charles O.

Panthers Beat Nation's #4

Saturday, April 25, 2009

When playing a nationally-ranked team, starting a pitcher who hadn't recorded an out all year wouldn't seem to be a recipe for success. Yet that's exactly what the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team did Saturday, and the result was a win for the Panthers over Herkimer County Community College. TC3 won the opener 9-8 before falling in game two 20-8. TC3 is now 10-16 overall and 6-7 in Region III. Herkimer, ranked fourth in the nation, is now 23-7 overall and 17-3 in region.
 
In game one, TC3's Jacob Newton (DeRuyter H.S./DeRuyter) made just his second start on the mound of the year and his first since failing to record an out in one of TC3's spring break games in Maryland. Despite his lack of time on the hill this season, Newton looked sharp early against the high-scoring Generals. Newton kept Herkimer off the board for the first three innings, striking out two while allowing just two hits. While Newton was putting up zeroes, his teammates were giving him plenty of support, scoring three runs in the first and another three in the third behind six hits.
 
Herkimer finally crossed the plate and knocked Newton out of the game with a five-run fourth, but TC3 responded with three more in the bottom of the inning to lead 9-5. With Justin Stanton (Moravia H.S./Locke) on the mound in relief of Newton, Herkimer was held off the board in the fifth before putting up three in the six to pull within one at 9-8. Kevin Mabry (Lansing H.S./King Ferry) closed the door in the seventh, stranding two base runners to pick up the save.
 
Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn) had a big game at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a double and a triple and three RBI. Brandon Becker (Chapparal H.S./Parker, Colo.) also had two hits and three RBI and Nicholas Mishlanie (Proctor H.S./Utica) tripled as one of his two hits.
 
As well as game one started for the Panthers, game two was the polar opposite. Herkimer took advantage of three hit batters, a walk, and an error to plate six runs in the first. The Generals continued to add to the lead en route to a 20-8 win. Herkimer scored in every inning, including a three-run seventh that was sparked by a stolen base that came with the Generals already leading by nine runs.
 
Newton provided a bright spot at the plate for the Panthers, picking up two of the team's nine hits. Derek Baroody (Hammondsport H.S./Savona) collected three RBI for the home team.

Panthers Split with Finger Lakes

Thursday, April 23, 2009

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team split a doubleheader with Finger Lakes Community College Thursday, winning game one 8-4 before coming up short in game two, 9-8. The Panthers are now 9-15 overall and 5-6 in Region III. Finger Lakes moves to 12-25 overall and 10-8 in region.
 
The Panthers found themselves behind early in both games. In the opener, TC3 trailed 4-2 before plating four runs in the bottom of the fourth and two more in the fifth. Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn) tossed the complete game, scattering 11 hits for the win. Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn) led the attack at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a double. Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) chipped in with a 2-for-3 effort.
 
Game two again saw the home team down 4-2 before exploding in the bottom of the fourth. This time the Panthers scored five runs to take a 7-4 lead. Unfortunately for TC3, Finger Lakes responded with five of their own in the fifth to take a 9-7 lead. The visitors held the lead into the seventh, thanks in part to throwing out a runner at the plate to end the eighth. In the seventh, TC3 loaded the bases with two outs. Pinch-hitter Nick Mishlanie (Proctor H.S./Utica) beat out an infield hit for an RBI, bringing the Panthers to within one at 9-8. With Quick at the plate, it appeared TC3 would tie the game when a pitch hit Quick, but the umpire ruled that he had turned into the pitch and ordered him back to the box. Quick returned to the box, but struck out to end the game.
 
For game two, Quick was the lone Panther with two hits, going 2-for-4 with three runs scored. Zambito again came up big, driving in three runs.

Panthers Split Wild Doubleheader

Saturday, April 11, 2009

A wild doubleheader Saturday left the Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team with a split with the Ithaca College J.V. team. The Panthers lost game one 8-7 before taking the second game 16-0 in six innings. TC3 is now 7-11 on the year.
 
The visiting Panthers took the lead in game one, scoring three runs in the top of the first inning. Ithaca came back with a run in the second, two in the third, and another run in the fourth to take a 4-3 lead. TC3 reclaimed the lead with two in the sixth and scored a pair of insurance runs in the top of the seventh to lead 7-4 going into the bottom of the last inning. It proved not to be enough insurance as the Bombers scored four times to pull out the win, plating the winning runs with a two-run hit with two outs.
 
Jarrod Surine (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg), Pete Ahart (Candor H.S./Candor), and Brandon Becker (Chapparal H.S./Parker, Colo.) each had two hits to pace TC3's 12-hit attack.

Tatsuya Hagiwara (Nagano Japan) delivered TC3's only other extra base hit, a pinch hit triple.
 
After the tough loss, the Panthers responded with a vengeance in game two, scoring four runs in the top of the fourth. TC3 added a run in the fifth before exploding for 11 runs in the sixth. The big run was powered by nine walks, as five different Panthers drove in runs without recording a hit. TC3 finished the game with 16 runs on just seven hits, as Ithaca issued 13 walks and a hit batsman in six innings.
 
Hagiwara earned the win, allowing four hits while striking out seven and yielding no walks. Brian Carroll (Gananda H.S./Walworth) went 2-for-3 for the Panthers and Nick Mishlanie (Proctor H.S./Utica) doubled for the winners.

Game 2 Boxscore

Thursday, April 09, 2009

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team worked ten innings in the nightcap to earn a doubleheader sweep of Broome Community College Thursday, winning the opener 6-1 before taking game two 4-3. The Panthers improve to 6-10 overall, 3-4 in Region III, and 2-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Broome falls to 2-7 overall, 2-4 in region, and 2-2 in conference.
 
In game one, the Panthers took a 5-0 lead after two innings and were never threatened. Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) sparked the attack from the leadoff spot, going 3-for-3 with two runs scored and a stolen base. Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn) was 2-for-3 with a double and four RBI. Jacob Newton (DeRuyter H.S./DeRuyter) and Seth Cameron (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) each went 2-for-3 in support of pitcher Anthony Siracusa (Auburn H.S./Auburn), who allowed just three hits while striking out five.
 
The second game was a classic, with both teams getting on the board with timely hitting in the second inning. After Broome plated a run in the top of the frame, TC3 answered with two as Newton singled and scored on a triple by Brent Stull (Lansing H.S./Lansing), who then scored on a single by Pete Ahart (Candor H.S./Candor). The Panthers made it 3-1 in the fifth as Cameron singled and eventually came around to score on a Zambito sacrifice fly.
 
The visitors got to TC3 pitcher Kevin Mabry (Lansing H.S./King Ferry) in the sixth, putting together back-to-back extra base hits to pull within 3-2. The tying run came on a passed ball, but Mabry responded by striking out the next hitter before getting the final out on a groundout. Both teams recorded hits in the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings, but couldn't push across a run. In the ninth, Broome opened the inning with a triple, but with the infield in, Mabry induced a pair of groundouts to Zambito at shortstop before ending the inning with a strikeout. In the top of the tenth, Mabry pitched around an error to keep the Hornets off the board, setting the stage for a dramatic bottom of the inning.
 
Newton opened the inning with a walk, his fourth of the game. He stole second, and after a strikeout, moved to third on a Broome error. With one out and the infield in, Siracusa pinch-hit, rolling a grounder to third. Newton broke for home on the throw to first, beating the relay home to score the game-winner.
 
Mabry went the distance for the Panthers, allowing just two earned runs on seven hits while striking out seven. The sophomore seemed to gain strength as the game wore on, striking out four over the last four innings while allowing just one ball out of the infield during that span. Jarrod Surine (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg) was the only Panther with multiple hits in the second game, going 2-for-4. Newton went 1-for-1 with four walks, two stolen bases, and two runs scores, including the game winner.

Saturday, March 28, 2009

The TC3 baseball team saw its three-game winning streak come to an end Saturday morning with a 3-1 loss to the Ithaca College JV. The Panthers are now 3-6 on the year, with an afternoon game against Region III foe Niagara County Community College at 4 p.m.
 
A day after scoring 20 runs in a doubleheader sweep of the Bombers, TC3's were slow to wake up Saturday. The Panthers were set down in order in four of the seven innings, managing just three hits for the game. TC3's lone run came in the fifth, when Jacob Newton (DeRuyter H.S./DeRuyter) singled with one out. Pete Ahart (Candor H.S./Candor) reached on an error, putting Newton on second. Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) grounded into a fielder's choice, but the throw trying to double him up went wide of the Ithaca first baseman, allowing Newton to score.
 
The Panthers wasted a strong start from Kevin Mabry (Lansing H.S./King Ferry). After three unearned runs over the first two innings, he settled in and held the Bombers off the board the rest of the way. He allowed just five hits, thanks in part to some stellar defense from centerfielder Quick and second baseman Jarrod Surine (Charles O. Dickerson H.S./Trumansburg). Mabry struck out four while walking just one.

Monday, March 16, 2009

The TC3 baseball team opened the 2009 season with a doubleheader against a Division I powerhouse Monday, playing at defending Region XX champion Hagerstown Community College. The Panthers were swept by scores of 11-1 and 13-3 to fall to 0-2 on the season. Hagerstown, a 2008 NJCAA College World Series participant, improves to 11-4 on the season.
 
The Panthers led in both games, scoring in all their runs in the top of the first inning in both games. Tatsuya Hagiwara (Nagano, Japan) scored the lone run in the first game, crossing home on an RBI by Brandon Becker (Chaparral/Parker, Colo.). The second game saw the Panthers rap out seven hits in five innings, led by 2-for-3 performance by Dustin Quick (Candor H.S./Candor) and Dan Zambito (Auburn H.S./Auburn). Sophomore Brian Carroll (Gananda H.S./Walworth) drove in two runs with Hagiwara picking up the other RBI.
 
"We did things that made me real happy, but we need our pitchers to do a better job locating their pitches," said TC3 Head Coach Pat Carroll, noting his pitchers issued nine walks and hit two batters in eight innings of work. "We were playing one of the D-I best teams in the country and we had seven hits in five innings in game two, so that pleased me."
 
TC3 will return to action Friday at Allegany College of Maryland, a Division I team in Cumberland, Maryland.
