Pitt-Greensburg sets records for walks, homers at D’Youville

Pitt-Greensburg athletics
Pitt-Greensburg sophomore outfielder Chris Common (Penn-Trafford) hit for the cycle Monday, April 10, 2017, to lead the Bobcats to a 11-4 win over Chatham.

The base paths were moving in Lewistown, N.Y. on Friday.

The Pitt-Greensburg baseball team had a nice walk in the park — then kept walking, and hitting and scoring in a lengthy doubleheader at D’Youville’s Bobo Field.

The Bobcats drew a school-record 14 walks in the first game, a wild, 24-18 victory. The teams combined for 34 hits.

UPG (19-10, 12-4 AMCC) won the second game, 5-1, piling up 14 hits.

The Bobcats combined for 32 hits in the twinbill, including four home runs to move their season total to 40, breaking the school single-season record of 37 set in 2012.

Freshman Mike Dolan (Baldwin), junior Tyler Holland (Baldwin), freshman Reno Rainey (Norwin) and junior Chris Common (Penn-Trafford) all hit home runs. Dolan had seven hits, Holland and Rainey had five apiece and Zack Zimmerman had four.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
