Over the weekend, the Colorado College men’s club baseball team went on the road and beat conference leader UCCS 15-9 last weekend. Sophomore David Lamis pitched the entire game (seven innings) with nine strikeouts to secure the victory.
“Lamis threw a masterful game,” said sophomore catcher Ben Swain. “He mixed up his pitches well and kept us in the game on the mound. It was a lot of fun to catch him. At the plate, it was great how everyone on the team contributed to the offensive explosion.”
The Tigers scored four runs in the first inning to take an early lead, and then scored another two runs in the second inning. Senior captain Garret Blackwell went 3-3 batting in the leadoff position with a walk and three runs scored.
“We played well together as a team, from the top to the bottom of our order,” commented Blackwell. “Everyone produced at the plate. It’s a lot of fun to be a part of this winning ball club.”
CC scored five runs in the sixth inning and four more in the seventh to pull far enough ahead to take home the win. “We made plays and simply had more fun than the other team,” said senior captain Sam Hale, who went 2-4 with a double and two RBI’s. “We picked each other up when we were down and stayed enthusiastic throughout the entire game. To have energy from both the bench and the field makes a difference.”
Junior Gabe Jacobs went 2-4 with a double and two RBI’s while junior Forrest Rappaport also went 2-4 with an RBI and a stolen base. Lamis went 2-3 with two sacrifice flies and 3 RBI’s
“Today was a great win,” said Lamis. “The future for CC club baseball looks bright with contributions from a lot of underclassmen. I pitched well enough to give our team a chance to win and had great defense and hitting supporting me.”
The Colorado College club baseball team now sits at 4-4 overall.
