After coming off a tough sweep at Hutch, Pratt Community College baseball turned to red shirt freshman Kane McCarthy to turn things around on Tuesday versus Garden City.
McCarthy would continue to play his hot hand going 5.0 innings pitched striking out two, walking one, and allowing only two runs. His masterful pitching gave the Beavers exactly what they needed to be successful. McCarthy would allow the Beaver offense to get things going.
The Pratt Community College baseball team traveled to Hutchinson to take on the Blue Dragons in a four-game series this weekend.
Game 1: Beavers 3 Hutch 5 (3-9)
Evan Payne took the mound against Hutch and pitched well. Some errors and lack of offense led to the Beavers falling in game one. Payne was able to keep the hitters off balanced and induced quite a few ground balls. The Beavers just couldn’t muster up the effort to scratch across competitive at bats.
Freshman Cody Ebert took the ball looking to turn things around for the Beavers. Ebert pitched well against the Dragons, but errors once again would cost the Beavers. Errors to go along with 2 hits (Skylar Dean and Glenn DesBuillons) cost the Beavers and plenty of strike outs and bad at bats would not allow the Beavers to put anything togeJacob Keltner looked to keep his hot hand going as the Beavers tried to salvage a game for the weekend. Keltner would pitch very well allowing only 2 runs in the first and zero the remaining 3 innings he pitched.

Last weekend the Pratt Community College baseball team traveled to Seminole, Okla. to face the historically tough Seminole State Community College. Going into the weekend, the Beavers were looking to bounce back after a tough weekend down in Northeast Texas.
The Beavers headed into the weekend with the game plan of relying on their strong pitching and timely offense. Head Coach Eric Thompson handed the ball to sophomore right handed pitcher Evan Payne. Payne went seven innings allowing no hits, striking out five and walking seven.
