Roughriders Split with Aztecs
The Roughrider baseball team split a conference doubleheader Saturday afternoon at Roughrider Park with Pima Community College. Yavapai won the opener, 4-2 and fell in the nightcap, 8-3. YC is now 14-12 on the season and 3-7 in ACCAC action.
Jake Kolterman was fantastic on the mound as he scattered 3 hits while striking out two batters for the complete game victory.
Offensively, YC scored three runs in the first two innings and added an insurance run in the sixth. Dallas Tessar and Jaxxon Fagg each had two hits to lead the Riders.
In the second game, YC jumped out to an early 2-0 lead only to give up 6 unanswered runs. YC attempted a comeback with a run in the sixth inning but the rally fell short. Carlos Viera had two hits and drove in two runs. RJ Cordeiro was 2 for 3.
YC takes a break from conference play when they play host to Benedictine University on Tuesday, March 14th. In February, YC swept a doubleheader from the Redhawks in Mesa, 8-6 and 12-4. Tuesday twinbill begins at 12:00 PM at Roughrider Park.
