Mountain Cats Split Home Doubleheader With West Virginia Wesleyan

     For the sixth time in the last six outings, the Pitt Johnstown Mountain Cat baseball team split a doubleheader. This time, the Mountain Cats split at home with West Virginia Wesleyan College on Thursday. Pitt Johnstown dropped game one, 9-7, before earning a 6-2 win behind a strong pitching performance from sophomore left hander Adam Plummer (Bellwood, Pa.) in the nightcap. Pitt Johnstown is now 18-10 on the year.
     In Thursday's opener, West Virginia Wesleyan held off a three-run seventh inning rally by Pitt Johnstown to secure the win. Senior third baseman Anthony Yarkowski (Homer City, Pa.) was 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and junior first baseman Casey Long (Johnstown, Pa.) drove in two runs to lead the Mountain Cats. Senior right hander Reggie Weaver (Meyersdale, Pa.) fell to 2-4 after giving up eight runs on 12 hits in three innings of work.
     In game two, Plummer surrendered just two runs (one earned run) and scattered four hits in a complete-game effort. Plummer, now 1-1 this season, also struck out six West Virginia Wesleyan hitters and picked off three Bobcat runners. Offensively, Plummer helped his own cause with a hit and an RBI. Sophomore outfielder Cody Gallaher (Sidman, Pa.) went 3-for-4 with an RBI, and sophomore catcher Paul Pentz (Johnstown, Pa.) was 3-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored. Freshman outfielder Scott Parnell (Export, Pa.) had two hits and two RBI and Long added two hits, including a double to help lead a 14-hit Mountain Cat attack. West Virginia Wesleyan is now 9-9 on the season.
     Pitt Johnstown travels to West Virginia Wesleyan for a doubleheader on Friday, before hosting Columbia Union (MD) College on Sunday at noon.
