Roughrider Baseball Rolls
The #4 ranked Roughrider baseball team resumed conference play Tuesday afternoon with a road sweep of Mesa Community College, 3-1 (10 innings) and 4-1. Yavapai is now 28-4 overall and 14-2 in the conference standings.
Yavapai needed late game heroics and extra innings to get the win in the first game. Jake Chilton got the game tying hit in the top of the seventh inning to send the game into extra frames. Rick Anton was stellar in from the mound surrendering only six hits and one run in 6 2/3 innings pitched. Pulama Silva threw the final 3 1/3 innings to get the victory.
In the nightcap, Merrill Kelly remained undefeated pitching six innings and striking out six. Ian Campbell threw the final inning to record the save. Offensively, Ty Forney was two for four with a run scored and Brett Sowers was one for three with a two-run double.
Yavapai plays host to pre-season #19 ranked Seminole Community College on Friday afternoon at Roughrider Park in Prescott. The first pitch will be at 12:00 PM.
