T-Birds win series over the FPC Plainsmen

March 5, 2012

Over the weekend, the Frank Phillips College Plainsmen baseball team opened WJCAC play taking on the New Mexico Junior College Thunderbirds.
The T-Birds are known for having solid pitching and that was evident in the series, as the Plainsmen were held to four runs over four games with the T-Birds winning the series three games to one.
On Saturday, the T-Bird used 15 hits and five Plainsmen errors to get the 12-1 win in the first game of the series.
In game two, the T-Birds continued to stay hot at the plate getting a 9-2 win. Andrew Landin brought in both Plainsmen runs on a two-run home run in the sixth inning.
On Sunday’s first game, the two teams were caught in a pitching duel where both teams were limited to just three hits.
However it would be Plainsmen 6-9 lefty Brad Wieck getting the win for the Plainsmen by keeping the T-Birds from crossing home plate through seven innings of work. Nolan Hoskins would bring in the game’s lone run on a RBI hit in the third inning.
In the series finale, the Plainsmen would get another solid pitching performance from Zach Johnson. But the Plainsmen would not score a run in the game leading to the T-Birds getting the 4-0 win.
The Plainsmen start WJCAC with a 1-3 record and go to 5-13 overall
The Plainsmen will be on the road the next couple of weekends beginning on Friday when they travel for a four game series with Odessa College.
