Oh Canada, Baseball Sweeps
The Roughrider baseball team swept a doubleheader against Thompson Rivers University, Canada, 9-1 and 7-1, Wednesday afternoon in Glendale. Yavapai is now 11-5 on the season.
Ethan Leiter pitched four innings giving up the lone run while striking out three. Jonathan Rodriguez, Nolan Clark, Josh Anderson and Tony Vocca all collected two hits with Rodriguez and Anderson knocking in two runs each.
In the second game, the Roughrider offense erupted for six runs in their half of the sixth inning to break a 1-1 tie against the Wolfpack and Miguel Silva shut the door in the seventh to give YC the victory and the sweep. Jordan Negrini had three of the Roughrider’s eight hits. Tyler Hanzawa was 1 for 1 with two runs batted in.
Yavapai plays host to Salt Lake City Community College on Thursday, February 24th at Chino Valley High School. Due to snow still on the home field, YC has been forced to use alternate facilities. The doubleheader will start at 12:00 PM.
