Cecil College baseball dropped both contests of Thursdays' double header to Maryland JUCO rival, the Owls of Prince George's Community College. This is now the Seahawks' 10th straight loss, six of which were to conference opponents. The Seahawks overall record fell to 2-17-1 and have a solo win in conference action.
The Seahawks opened game one in a quick 7-0 defecit in the first three innings with starting pitcher Brett Valentin on the mound, until finally getting on the scoreboard themselves in the bottom of the 3rd with a two-RBI single from sophomore outfielder Solomon Harris to make the score 5-2. Cecil's three runs in the fourth inning, from a three-run blast from Hector Laguer, and four runs in the 6th - from another RBI-single from Solomon Harris, two-run homer from Andrew Imbierowicz, and a solo home run from Jaily Paredes - sparked a comeback that was outlasted by Prince George's. The Owls scattered 16 runs on 13 hits across the plate in seven innings of game #1, outscoring the Seahawks' 10 runs on 13 hits.
Hector Laguer and Solomon Harris each went 3-for-4 with three RBI's in game one, followed two home runs and three RBI's on five at bats from Andrew Imbierowicz. Freshman pitcher Brett Valentin struck out four batters in 4.0 innings pitched.
The 10-run rule was activated in six innings of game two as the Owls out hit the Seahawks 10-5 and outscored them 14-4. Scoring for the home team opened off a two-run homer to centerfield from Jaily Paredes, but Seahawks were held scoreless in the second and third innings. Hector Laguer scored in the fourth due to an error by the Owls' pitcher and Andrew Imbierowicz's third homer of the day would give the Seahawks another tally in the fifth.
Cecil College baseball will return to action with four games over the weekend. They will face Garrett College for a double-header starting at 12:00 p.m on April 6 and Potomac State College of WVU for a double-header starting at 1:00 p.m. on April 7.
