Baseball Splits Twinbill
In a change of venue due to the weather, the Roughrider baseball team came away with doubleheader split in Phoenix Tuesday afternoon against South Mountain Community College. YC won the first game 5-1 behind the arm of Tony Vocca and the Riders fell in the nightcap 8-1. Yavapai is now 2-2 in conference play and 9-5 overall.
In the opener, all runs were scored in the first inning. Vocca surrendered the only run and scattered five hits in 6 plus innings of work to get his fourth win of the year. Offensively, Vocca aided his cause with two hits and two run batted in. Jonathan Rodriguez had two hits. The offense sputtered in the second game managing only one run.
Yavapai returns to the diamond on Wednesday, February 23rd against Thompson Rivers College, Canada in a doubleheader that was moved from Roughrider Park to Glendale Community College. The first pitch will be at 12:00 PM.
