The Pitt State Club Baseball team played two consecutive home games against the Kansas State Wildcats, Sunday, March 24. The Gorillas won the first game (18-3) and continued on their path of victory to win the second game as well (12-2).
Club Baseball president Drew Roy was happy to see the team play together as a team and win two games in a row.
“It was definitely a good weekend for us,” Roy said. “It was good to get back on the field and just chill as team (and) play well. I think we might have finally hit our little coming out party for this group. But 18 runs up in the first game and 12 in the second game… definitely feels good.”
According to Roy, the team played well and consistently hit the baseball.
“We just hit the ball the entire day,” Roy said. “That is one thing that we really have not done a great job of this year is just stringing hits together and all day long we were constantly hitting the baseball.”
A few players stood out to Roy during the games against Kansas State including Peyton Brown, Jordan Miller, and Kealin Smith.
“Peyton Brown went four for six… and then Jordan Miller and Kealin Smith both hit homeruns and they both were starting pitchers and threw well as well,” Roy said.
Club Baseball will continue to work on improving and enhancing their skills while continuing to play games.
“(We are going to be working on) continuing staying together,” Roy said. “(We will also work on) trying to keep our offensive approach at the same level. We have a big nonconference series coming up against Nebraska this weekend. That will be huge…”
Roy hopes to see the club continue on their path of victory and bring home more wins after their upcoming matches.
“(I hope to see the club) keeping winning, streak on,” Roy said. “We are back in the win column. We are at two wins (and) hopefully (we can) get to four (and) just keep building.”
