PBA Picks Up 2 More Wins!

Who say’s it doesn’t rain in the desert? After a crazy storm pummeled Las Vegas on Saturday washing out both PBA games the boys were back on the field Sunday against the College of Southern Idaho. Even better, the boys came away with two more wins to move their record to 3-0 so far on their Las Vegas trip. Neither wins were easy, but the team showed some true grit in pulling out both W’s on Sunday afternoon. Coach Hubka believes that this is the best start PBA has ever had in Las Vegas in the programs 22-year history.

 

In game 1 of the doubleheader, sophomore Rhett Feser started on the mound and battled his way through 4 innings. The lefty didn’t have his best stuff, and had to deal with a tight strike zone, but managed to limit the Eagles to just 2 runs. Both of those runs coming in the first inning. Feser threw up zeros in his final three innings. Feser’s line looked liked this: 4.0 IP, 3 H, 4 K, 4 BB, 2 ER. Coach Hubka turned to Liam Sabiston who picked up the win in relief in game 1 of the trip. Sabiston pitched himself into another win, tossing the last 3 innings of the ball game. The freshman right-hander gave up 3 runs, only 1 earned and struck out 3 batters to pick up back to back wins to start his college career.

 

A big second inning gave PBA a 4-2 lead. Austin Schibler hit the first homerun of the year for the team with a laser beam to left field that got out in a hurry. Brett Semeniuk capped the inning with a 2 run single. Semeniuk finished 3-4 with 2 RBI’s in the first game of the doubleheader. After surrendering the lead in the 6th, Schibler would be a factor again in the top of the 7th hitting an RBI single to plate the go ahead run.  Including Schibler and Semeniuk four PBA hitters had multi hit games. Dylan Flasch was 2-3 with 2 runs, and Brett Brittany was 2-3 with a run.

Catcher, Carter Witbeck hit the second PBA homerun of the day. A towering big fly that easily cleared a second fence behind the field. Six PBA starters recorded hits in the game, including two a piece from Dylan Flasch and Dalton Wells.

 

Greg Hollman started on the mound for PBA, and was very good in his 5 innings of work. The big right-hander surrendered only 4 hits, with 1 ER, 2 K’s, and 2 BB. Hollman left the game with a 6-1 lead, but another shaky outing from the PBA bullpen gave up 5 runs forced the game to extra innings. PBA manufactured a run in the top of the 9th to take a 7-6 lead, and freshman Chris Messer slammed the door shut to pick up his first college win. Messer threw 2.1 innings with 5 strikeouts in a gutsy effort for the team.

 

The team will now enjoy a couple of days off before taking on the College of Southern Nevada on Wednesday and Thursday. They will look to keep their winning ways going against an always tough Coyote team. A trip to the Hoover Dam, and the Las Vegas strip will be on the agenda.  Stay tuned for more updates throughout the week.
