  • The Colby Trojans showed why they are leading the Jayhawk West to this point, sweeping a 4-game weekend series from visiting Pratt Community College.
    The Beaver baseball team dropped both ends of twin bills on both Saturday and Sunday to the Trojans, resulting in the series sweep by the Trojans.
    On Saturday. Colby won 6-4 and 11-1. On Sunday, they prevailed by scores of 22-4 and 17-12.
    The weekend was all Colby as they outhit Pratt 53-29 in the 4-game set.
    It was not a stellar series for Pratt pitchers or fielders either, as the Beavers managed to boot the ball around 17 times on the weekend and cough up 25 walks to Trojan hitters.  “The defense was woeful,” according to PCC assistant coach Jeremy Strack, which is what allowed Colby to plate 56 runs on their 53 hits.
    By way of contrast, hurlers for the conference #1 Trojans fanned 21 Beavers while only issuing 12 free passes on the weekend, and so Pratt only scored 21 runs on their 29 hits.
    Sophomore outfielder, Jordan Jones was the highlight offensively for the Beavers as he went 5-12 on the weekend with 5 RBIs, 3 runs scored, and a homerun. Left-handed freshman, Tyler Huffstickler  was the highlight on the mound for Pratt, pitching seven innings, giving up five runs (three earned) on five hits.
     After the ugly series, PCC drops to last place in the Jayhawk West, tied with Cloud at 8-16. After clawing their way over .500 early in the month, PCC has gone 2-8 in its last 10 games to fall to 16-21 overall.
    The Beavers get a chance to get back on track Tuesday night on the road at Cowley County in an evening game starting at 7 p.m.
