LARGO, Md. – The Prince George's Community College baseball doubleheader against Garrett College, originally scheduled for Sunday at 12 p.m. at the Prince George's Community College Baseball Field, has been postponed. The twinbill between the Owls and Lakers has been rescheduled for April 30 with first pitch slated for 12 p.m.
Prince George's is coming off a 10-all standstill against CCBC Catonsville on Thursday. The game was halted due to darkness after nine innings. Siri-Jacob Ramirez smoked an RBI double in the bottom of the eighth inning to tie the game at 10. After the Cardinals took a 10-9 lead in the top of the eighth inning, Dwayne Coleman reached on a single to left field and moved to second on a wild pitch before Ramirez drove the ball to the right-center gap to bring home Coleman with the tying run. Ramirez finished the afternoon 5-for-5 with three RBIs and a run scored for the Owls while Dakota McFadden drilled a two-run homer and completed his afternoon with three RBIs and two runs scored. Thomas Thorgersen registered two hits and an RBI, and Brandon Crosby was an on-base machine with three walks, a hit, an RBI and two runs scored.
The Owls are led by Crosby, who is hitting .543 with 25 hits, 18 runs scored, five doubles, a triple, 23 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. Crosby leads NJCAA Division III in stolen bases and ranks third in RBIs. McFadden is second on the team with a .471 batting average, 16 hits, 13 runs scored, six doubles, a homer and 17 RBIs.
