March 10, 2011
Sophomore Ryan Weachock notched two singles and an RBI
MYRLTE BEACH, S.C. – Junior Harrison Myers (Lebanon) notched his second win of the year with three strikeouts and two hits in five innings of work to help the Pennsylvania College of Technology to a 7-2 win against Danville Community College (Va.). “I’m really happy with our pitching right now,” said Howard. “We’ve been keeping the walks down and letting our defense do the work.” Senior Jared Johnson (Wyalusing) and sophomore Ryan Weachock (Pottsville) each had two hits and an RBI in the game.
Penn College (4-0) played two scoreless innings before breaking it open in the third with four runs. Junior Ethan Boyd (Roaring Spring) hit an RBI double followed by an RBI single from Weachock. After a walk, Johnson and junior Brett Braker (Northampton) hit back to back singles to score two more runs.
Danville scored two in the bottom of the inning to keep it close.
Junior Tyler Rice (Trumbull, Conn.) came into the game in the sixth and hit an RBI single up the middle to give the Wildcats a cushion.
“All four games we’ve been coming up with two-out hits with runners in scoring position,” said head coach Chris Howard. “That’s good baseball and it really gives us the mental advantage over our opponents.”
Penn College finishes out the tournament on March 11 with a 12:30 p.m. game against Owens.
