Chargers salvage a split against Jets
It was a wild and at times frustrating afternoon for the Ancilla College baseball team, but in the end they were able to capture a win in the second game of a doubleheader against the visiting Jackson College, by scores of 13-9 and 7-6.
Overall, the Chargers had solid starting pitching, with game one starter Luke Gaboury going 6 1/3 innings. Soon after his Gaboury’s exit, the Jets gained a five-run advantage. Ancilla’s pitchers struggled in the seventh, as four straight reliefs could not get the final two outs and Jackson College defeated the Chargers by a score of 13-9.
In game two, Clayton Adamson went 6 2/3 innings, scattering four hits and walking just one before giving way to Evan Vangordon, who was able to come on and get the final out, which added to the day’s excitement. The final out came on an interference call against Jackson’s Austin Plasterer, as he collided with Vangordon, trying to field the Jet’s second baseman’s foul pop up. With the last out, Vangordon got his first save of the year, preserving a win for Adamson and Ancilla.
Throughout the day, Charger bats ignited with Jalon Linville and Kainin Lewis banging out four hits in the doubleheader. Linville and Ryan Reese each added a pair of RBI’s for Ancilla. Charger doubles came from Reese, Marvin Montgomery, and Brad Rist.
The Chargers (5-17) will try to stay in the win column at Lake Michigan College on Tuesday, April 15, at 2:00 p.m.
Ancilla College, part of The Center at Donaldson, offers 18 Associate’s Degree and eight athletic programs. Since 1937, the College has been a sponsored ministry of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ and is located two miles south of US 30 on Union Road near Plymouth, Indiana.
