GCC Baseball Cougars Split Pair in South Carolina

Baseball team warms up in South Carolina

The Genesee Community College baseball team split a pair of games March 15 with the latter contest being an impressive 5-4 win over National Junior College Athletic Association Division-I Chesapeake College, who currently has a 14-3 record.

Pitcher Jason Downs went almost six innings in only allowing five hits and struck out seven in leading the team defensively. Tyler Prospero relieved Downs with just more than an inning of work for the save.

Offensively, the Cougars out-hit the Skipjacks 11-5 with both Shannon Folkes and Jakob MacLeod going 3-for-4 at the plate with Folkes knocking in the winning run in the seventh inning to break a 4-4 deadlock.

Justin Baly added a pair of hits with single tallies coming from Deion Rosalia, L'Shandry Kirindongo and Peter Bradford. Aside from Folkes, Kirindongo had two RBI and Bradford one for the win.

The Cougars got behind in their opening game against Camden by seven runs in the first two innings and weren't able to recover in suffering a 9-0 loss.
