Panthers baseball hooked by Hawks

The unexpected wind chills of the afternoon provided a baseball game that went back and forth in a heated mystery doubleheader. The City College Panthers were unable to clip the wings of the Cosumnes River Hawks in a doubleheader April 7, with a score of 8-5. The second game ended too in a City College loss at 6-3.

During the first inning the Panthers started out strong with City College’s Aaron Conyers pitching, putting down three batting Hawks, giving them no runs. The Panthers played an offensive side when they came to bat, giving Joey Matthews an advance to third and an RBI.

However, in the second inning trouble brewed when batter Conyers gave up five hits and four runs to the Hawks. The next three innings were quiet with neither team being able to produce more runs. In the sixth inning City College was able to produce four more runs and tied the game.

Though they were able to make a comeback the Panthers ultimately lost the game in the top of eighth inning by giving up three more runs, giving Cosumnes River Hawks the win, 8-5.

The next day, City College came up short once more with the last game of the double header, 6-3.

The Cosumnes River Hawks came to bat and scored two runs during the first inning, while City College remained scoreless.
It was not until the last two innings, the Panthers scored two runs.  However, it was not enough to match up against the aggressive Cosumnes Hawks.

For its next game, City College’s baseball team will play against Diablo Valley College April 12 at Union Stadium.
