Game 1: PCC vs. Northeast Texas Community College loss 15-9 On a cold night the Beavers opened their season down in Mount Pleasant, Texas. The Beavers would open with staff ace Evan Payne. Payne would only go 3+ innings allowing 6 runs. The Beavers were shaky in their opening game on the mound and on defense. We were able to hold our own offensively, but our downfall came from defensive mishaps. Offensively the first runs were scored on a bases loaded double by Catcher Avery Booth. Followed by a solo homerun by first baseman Ethan Schlesener "Sledge".
