Beautiful day at Provident Bank Park in Pomona as STAC baseball took on Kutztown University on April 19. Starting pitchers of the game were Matt Kostalos for the Spartans and Peter Masterson for Kutztown.
The Spartans got off to a hot start as second basemen, Brandon Fischer drove in the first run in the first inning to give the Spartans an early lead.
Kostalos was sharp against Kutztown, shutting them out for the first four innings until a homerun by Brady McNab broke the shutout and tied the game at one.
It didn’t take long for the Spartans to respond. In the sixth inning after a Juan Adorno got to third on a wild pitch, right fielder Giovanni Dingcong drove him in with an RBI single to break the tie. Later in the inning, junior Greg Dawber doubled to the right center gap to bring home Dingcong to make it 3-1. Dingcong was at it again in the seventh; he drive home John DeAngelis with a sac fly to center.
George Navadel came in to pitch in the ninth inning and closed it out for the save and the win for the Spartans. Final score was 4-1 and Scott Hannon was credited with the win. With this win against Kutztown, STAC’s record goes up to 24-9 overall. The Spartans will play Concordia tomorrow and Dowling four times Friday-Sunday.
