BCC Opens Baseball Season with Doubleheader Defeat
January 26, 2013 - The Brevard Community College baseball team opened its season by dropping a doubleheader to Florida State College Jacksonville on Saturday at Bruce Bochy Field on the Melbourne Campus.
BCC managed just three hits in losing the first game 5-0 and saw a seventh-inning rally snuffed in the second, losing 4-3.
Sophomore and Rockledge High graduate Chris Dennis swung the biggest bat for BCC collecting three hits for the day. He had one of BCC's three singles in the first game and collected a double and a triple in the second game, the triple coming in the bottom of the seventh inning.
Dennis scored on a passed ball to bring BCC to within 4-3. The Titans put two more runners on with one out but the game ended on a strike out, throw out double play.
Freshmen Jorge Gonzalez and Jimmy Tolle also singled in the first game while sophomore T.J. Glessner doubled and freshman Miguel Frias and sophomore Matt Harris singled in the second game. Harris also collected BCC's lone run-batted in.
Sophomore Ashton Fronsoe was the long pitcher in the first game while sophomore James Baggs took the loss in the second game.
"I expected better results," BCC head coach Jeff Tam said. "The first game we did not pitch well, we did not hit well. We made an error in the first inning of the first game and it ended up costing us two unearned runs. From there we just couldn't right ourselves.
"Second game, little better pitching. Defense was OK. It just seems like maybe bad at bats were taken to the second game, we held onto them a little too long and didn't have a short enough memory.
"We had a chance at the end of the game but it just didn't work out."
Next up for BCC is a 5 p.m. game on Tuesday at St. Johns River State College in Palatka. BCC's next home game is 4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6 against Daytona State College.
"We've got 46 more games," Tam said. "There's nowhere to go but up."
