Conference Series vs Neumann

PCB opened its spring season with a 2-day, 3-game series against Neumann University. After the cold weekend was over, we emerged with a 3-game sweep to move our record to 10-2 on the year.

We played Game 1 on Saturday at Father Judge High School on their beautiful turf field. The temperature barely cracked 40 degrees, but that didn’t stop our bats from heating up. Fueled by moonshot DINGERS from Marshall Harden, JP Quinn, and Frumpy, and a 4 for 4 day from Esteemed Co-Social Chair Sam Rogers, we put up 11 runs against the Neumann pitching staff. Harden (6 innings) and our VP Doug Meyers (1 inning) combined to limit Neumann to 5 runs. Final score: 11-5, W.

The weather (slightly) warmed up for Games 2 and 3, played at the Academy of the New Church. PCB rode its momentum from the Game 1 victory into the doubleheader and took Game 2 behind Doc’s arm and bat. He went the distance, striking out 11 while allowing only 3 hits and 1 unearned run. At the plate, he knocked in 4 runs on a double and a triple en route to a 2-4 day. Our bats stayed hot from Game 1 as we collected 10 hits (5 of them for extra bases) in a 10-1 victory. The bats cooled slightly for Game 3, as we were held scoreless for the first 3 innings. However, we broke things open in the bottom of the 4th with a 5 run inning, capped off by Co- President Ben Rogers’ bases clearing double. After Neumann put up 2 unearned runs in the top of the 6th, PCB countered with 2 in the bottom of the inning to put the game away, 7-2. Andrew Becker went the distance on the mound, allowing 5 hits and 2 unearned runs while striking out 9. Here are some highlights and lowlights from the weekend:
