PIONEERS COMPLETE WEEKEND SWEEP

Game 1

(Miles City, MT) The Pioneers held off the Indians in game one and took the win 6-5. McCook scored five runs in the fifth and sixth innings, but the Pioneer’s defense held them in the seventh to secure the victory.

Mitch Hughson got the victory on the mound for MCC. He lasted five and two-thirds innings, gave up five runs on four hits, and struck out seven. Beau Thomas threw one inning in relief out of the bullpen. Thomas got the last four outs of the game to earn the save.

The Pioneers had ten hits in the game. Nate Bloxham and Will Riley each had multiple hits in the game. Bloxham led the Pioneers with four hits in four at bats.

Game 2

The final game of the series was a good one for the Pioneers. MCC got the win, 3-1, finishing the sweep of the series against the Indians.

Luke Turner got the victory on the mound for the Pioneers. He pitched seven innings, allowed three hits, one run, and struck out six.

Will Riley led the Pioneers in hitting, going 2-for-2 at the plate, including a home run.

Coach Jeff Brabant is happy with how his team played over the weekend, “I think for anyone to sweep in this conference is tremendously difficult. We did enough today to accomplish that, but I still feel our best baseball is ahead of us. We had a couple home runs today that turned out being the difference. Our post season destiny is in our own hands.”

The Pioneers will be on the field again Friday, April 27 in La Junta, CO to take on Otero JC.
