Gallaudet baseball

Gallaudet wins first NEAC games of the season, Upton sets new hits record

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – Gallaudet University picked up its first two North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) wins of the season here Friday with
wins over SUNY Cobleskill. Gallaudet (9-23, 2-9 NEAC) scored two runs in
the eighth inning to defeat the Fighting Tigers (11-15, 6-5 NEAC) in the
first game, 5-3. In the second game, GU scored five times in the seventh
en route to a 7-4 win.

In the top of the third inning of the first game, senior Cameron Upton
(Vicksburg, Miss.) singled to set the new program record for career hits.
Upton surpasses William Bissell (2010-14), who had 206 career hits.

Game 1: Gallaudet 5, SUNY Cobleskill 3 (F/8)
GU trailed early in the first game before the buff and blue took a 3-2
lead in the top of the sixth inning. Sophomore Darren Drolsbaugh
(Lansdale, Pa.) singled home freshman Josh Dugan (San Antonio, Texas), who
walked and advanced on a wild pitch and sacrifice bunt.

The Bison were two outs away from closing out the first game in seven
innings but the Fighting Tigers tied it up on a RBI single by Eddy Garcia.
SUNY Cobleskill loaded the bases with two outs but a ground out ended the
inning as the game went to extra frames.

In the top of the eighth, Gallaudet scored two times to take back the lead
and eventually earn its first conference win of the season

Game 2: Gallaudet 7, SUNY Cobleskill 4
In the second game, GU struck first with a run in the first inning before
the teams traded runs, leads and broke one tie.

The Fighting Tigers plated two runs in the bottom of the fifth off
Drolsbaugh (2-2), GU’s starting pitcher, to take a 4-2 lead.

That two-run lead stood until the seventh inning when Gallaudet scored
five times to regain the lead for good. GU scored five runs on four hits
and took advantage of three Fighting Tigers’ errors in the field along
with one balk, one wild pitch and one passed ball.

GU had four different batters with two or more hits, led by Altman’s
3-for-5 performance with a double. The top five batters in Gallaudet’s
line-up scored at least one run and recorded at least one hit.

note:
these two wins were big wins. Not only these were conference wins
but it brings Gallaudet to 9 wins so far this season. Just one more
win would bring Gallaudet into a double-digit win season. Past four
seasons Gallaudet won 9, 9, 9 and 8 games respectively.

baseball or track at a deaf school

Years ago, DeafDigest Sports editor had a discussion with
a coach at a deaf school on which sport is better –
baseball or track.

The coach said that in baseball, you need 9 starters plus
at least 2 or 3 subs. In track, you would need sprinters,
middle distance runners, long distance runners, weight
throwers and jumpers – which would mean at least 15-20
tracksters.

Yes, times have changed. Less tracksters means less
events to participate.
