Titans Baseball team off to a strong start.

Uncategorized

The season started last Saturday as the Titans opened against a strong Miami-Dade team on Jan. 28th. Veteran right-handed pitcher Zach Gordon led the Titans on the mound. The team looked sharp in all aspects, but just came up a little short in a 7-3 loss. “The team gained some valuable experience that were going to need going forward, because were so young”, said Gordon on the loss. The Titans compiled 15 hits, showing off their ability to hit, but left 12 men on base. “We played well, we were only a few timely hits away from coming out on top against a very good team”, said Right Fielder Casey Jennings.

Just a few hours later, however, the Titans were able to pull of their first win in an exciting extra innings game against Broward College on the 28. Corbin Hoffner was especially dominant pitching, and went five strong innings, while only surrendering two runs. “I felt comfortable with all of my pitches and had pretty good control”, said Hoffner. Following Hoffner was a bullpen that was able to secure a 3-2 lead going into the 9th inning, until Broward struck back with the game tying run. But the Titans quickly followed up with a double at the top of the tenth inning, courtesy of Casey Jennings. Jennings eventually scored on an infield single by Kolbe Andrade. Bruce Wong was able to close the game on the mound and secure the first win of the season.

The Titans are 1-1, and look to win game number two Sunday against Palm Beach State College.
