Gators silence Panther bats

The Pitt-Bradford baseball team dropped a twinbill to Allegheny Wednesday. The Gators roughed up the Panthers 11-0 and 11-2.

It was Pitt-Bradford's final tune-up before hosting Pitt-Greensburg Saturday in the first round of the AMCC tournament.

The Panthers managed just a total of eight hits in two games. The Gators made quick work of starters Chris Kemp and Aaron Jackson as neither pitcher failed to pitch out of the third inning.

Kemp allowed six runs over 2.2 innings in the opener. He walked three and struck out one. Pitt-Bradford trailed 11-0 before Jason Burkes tripled to score Scottie Frisina, and he scored moments later on Tommy Reese's RBI single.

Jackson surrendered five runs, four earned, over 2.1 innings to suffer the loss in the nightcap. Three Allegheny pitchers combined to toss a two-hitter, and the Gators pounded out ten more hits, giving them a two-game total of 20.

The two losses snapped the team's four-game winning streak and dropped Pitt-Bradford to 14-17 on the year. First pitch for Saturday's best-of-three series is 10 a.m.
