WINTERVILLE — Pitching got the job done in both games for the Pitt Community College baseball team Saturday afternoon, winning 11-1 and 5-2 over visiting Bryant & Stratton College.

Sophomore right-hander Dylan Patrick pitched all six innings of Game 1. He gave up only one hit, which came in the sixth inning. He walked one batter and struck out six.

Pitt (13-6-1, 7-4 Region X) slammed the door shut in the bottom-half of the sixth with singles by Bryce Lewis and Josh Netterville that drove in a run each to reach the 10-run mercy rule.

The stellar pitching rolled into Game 2. PCC’s right-hander and North Carolina Tar Heel commit Kyle Mott threw six innings, striking out 11 Bobcats to shake off giving up two runs in the second inning.

“Early I wasn’t locating fastballs like I needed to.” Mott said. “I think I have the stuff to compete and later in the game I was able to get ahead in the count and keep them off balance.”

The Bulldogs produced 16 runs on the day to support their pitchers. Chandler Blackwelder accounted for a 4-for-7 day, tallying three RBIs and two runs.

“We didn’t do things great today and still won two ball games, but it was important for our mentality.” PCC coach Tommy Eason said. “Mott and Patrick both pitched great today. We’ve been down offensively, and we’ve talked about that, but the reality is we have to start moving the baseball when we have opportunities to score.”
