Penn College baseball team off to 0-3 start


Traveling south to find decent weather, the Pennsylvania College of Technology baseball team got its season underway over the weekend. The college’s softball team, however, has to wait a couple of extra days to take the field.

Baseball
In their weather-delayed season opener on Saturday, the Wildcats dropped a 9-7 nonconference decision to Benedict College at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The winners used a seven-run fifth inning to take control of the game, then held off Penn College as it rallied with four runs in the eighth inning and two in the ninth – the final scored on a double by Jacob Carles, of Bernville. Alex Zelger, of Red Lion, and Colton Riley, of Danville, each had two hits for Penn College while Cole Hofmann, of Newtown, drove in two runs and Richard Lennon, of Morgantown, scored twice. The Wildcats stranded 10 base runners. Hunter Thomas, of Elizabethtown, who relieved starter Devon Sanders, of Bloomsburg, after four innings, took the mound loss.

Back in action on Sunday in a doubleheader against Mount Aloysius College, Penn College fell 11-2 in the first game and lost 10-3 in the second to drop to 0-3 overall. In the first game, Riley had two of the Wildcats’ four hits and drove in a run. Nathan Holt, of Shippensburg, went four innings in his first pitching start of the season and took the loss. In the second game, Lennon went 3-for-3 at the plate with a run scored. Starting pitcher Cody Nelson, of South Williamsport, went three innings and took the loss.

Softball
Penn College’s scheduled games on Saturday at Virginia Beach, Virginia, were canceled and the Wildcats now are slated to begin their season Monday afternoon with games in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
