Panthers Eliminated from Playoff Race

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College Baseball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball team was eliminated from playoff contention Tuesday when it lost both ends of a doubleheader to Finger Lakes Community College, 7-3 and 7-1. The losses drop the Panthers to 13-17 and into sixth place in the West Division (20-23 overall), mathematically eliminated from the playoff race. Finger Lakes improves to 23-7 in the West Division (39-14 overall). The Lakers, the second-place team in the division, had already clinched a playoff spot.

GAME 1: Finger Lakes 7, Tompkins Cortland 3

The Panthers trailed 1-0 after the visitors scored a run in the top of the first, and looked to answer in the bottom. Anthony Ferrezza (East Islip H.S./East Islip) led off the bottom of the first with a double and then stole third. Andrew Babcock (Cortland H.S./Cortland) followed with a walk, putting runners on the corners with no outs. But a base-running mistake cost the Panthers an out, and when the next two batters failed to get the ball out of the infield, the score remained 1-0 in favor of the Lakers. The deficit grew to 3-0 in the third, but this time, the Panthers answered in the bottom of the inning.

Ferrezza again started the rally, drawing a one-out walk. With two outs, Dana Scarselletta (Auburn H.S./Auburn) moved him to third with a single and Matt Van Allen (West Genesee H.S./Camillus) followed with another single to drive in Ferrezza. The rally ended with two runners on, keeping the score 3-1 after three innings. Finger Lakes tacked on four runs over the next three innings, making the score 7-1 in the middle of the sixth. The Panthers scored a single run in the sixth and seventh, making the final 7-3.

Van Allen finished the game 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI. Scarselletta extended his season-best hitting streak to 10 by going 2-for-4. Payten Boice (Homer H.S./Homer) took the loss on the mound, going five inning and allowing all seven runs while striking out three.

GAME 2: Finger Lakes 7, Tompkins Cortland 1

Both teams threatened early without scoring in game two. Over the first three innings, each team put runners in scoring position twice, but couldn’t deliver key hits. That changed in the fourth, when the Lakers were able to string together three hits to open the inning to get on the board. Eventually the visitors would plate four runs in the inning, knocking out starting pitcher Aaron Wintermute (Tully H.S./Tully). Relief pitcher Matt Socola (Haverling H.S./Bath) came on in the fifth, but struggled with his control, allowing two runs on a pair of hit batters, a walk, and a single. The Panthers lone run came in the bottom of the fifth, with Bryce Ryder (Palmyra-Macedon H.S./Palmyra) walking, stealing second, and then coming in to score on an RBI double by Kavon Ruffin (Bullard Havens Tech/Bridgeport, Conn.). After a walk and ground out put panthers on second and third, a pop out ended the inning and the Panthers’ last best chance to score. Finger Lakes added a run in the sixth and threatened in the seventh until Mickey Beach (Newfield H.S./Newfield) came on to record the final out. Trailing 7-1, the Panthers were able to put two runners on in the bottom of the seventh, but couldn’t plate another run.

Tompkins Cortland managed just four hits in game two, with no Panther notching a multi- hit game. Scarselletta went 0-for-4 in the nightcap, ending his hitting streak at 10 games.

On Thursday the Panthers are scheduled to play at Erie Community College in a make-up of a rain out earlier this season. It will be the season finale for Tompkins Cortland.

Head Coach

Ryan Stevens

Ryan Stevens returns for his second season as head baseball coach. Stevens, who was an assistant at TC3 from 2006 to 2010, took over as head coach for the 2014-15 academic year.

Stevens has built an impressive resume since starting his coaching career at TC3. While on the Dryden campus he was the Panthers’ pitching coach and recruiting coordinator, helping build a brand new program into a playoff team. His time at the College coincides with the best four-year stretch in the program’s history, culminating with an NJCAA regional playoff appearance in his final season.

In 2008 he entered the world of professional baseball, taking a job with the Texarkana Gunslingers of the Independent Professional Continental Baseball league. After two years and a league championship with the Gunslingers, Stevens took his first head coaching job with the Alpine Cowboys of the Pecos League, an independent professional league based in Texas with teams through the southwest. In five seasons as the manager of the Cowboys, Stevens has led the team to the postseason each year, capturing two league championships and posting an overall record of 208-119. He was named the Pecos League Manager of the Year, and has helped more than 50 players earn promotions to higher levels of professional baseball, including one, Jonathan Edwards, who is on a major league roster (Texas Rangers, pitcher). Two other of his players signed contracts with Major League affiliates: David Valesente (Pittsburgh Pirates organization, catcher) and Andrew Wall (Washington Nationals organization, pitcher).

Stevens, who also worked as an associate scout in the West Texas region for the Washington Nationals, served as an assistant coach at Ithaca College during the 2013-14 school year. He is a Dryden native, graduating from Dryden High before playing collegiate baseball at SUNY Cobleskill and Frostburg State University (Maryland).

Saturday, May 05, 2007

A doubleheader sweep of conference-rival Onondaga Community College Saturday gave the TC3 baseball team a winning record in conference and kept the Panthers alive in the race for an NJCAA playoff bid.

Panthers Split with Jefferson

Thursday, May 03, 2007

The TC3 baseball team earned its second straight doubleheader split, taking the opener against Jefferson Community College Thursday 6-1 before dropping the nightcap 7-2. TC3 is now 5-16 overall, 5-9 in Region III and 4-4 in the MSAC. Jefferson stands at 12-10 overall, 9-4 in Region III, and 4-2 in the MSAC.
 
TC3's Gabe Newton (DeRuyter HS/DeRuyter) earned the win in game one, throwing six innings of four-hit ball. He finished with eight strikeouts before Michael Zick (Whitesboro HS/Whitesboro) struck out the side in the seventh to close out the win.
 
Jason Bennison (Dryden HS/Dryden) had a big day for the Panthers, going 3-for-3 with a double and a stolen base. Jesse Stiffen (Bishop Maginn HS/Selkirk) blasted his third home run of the game and Eric Longwell (Avoca HS/Avoca) added a double in the eight-hit attack.
 
In game two a tough third inning that saw the home team score five runs proved to be the difference as Jefferson's pitching limited TC3 to just two runs on four hits. The split keeps TC3 at .500 in conference play.

Tuesday, April 24, 2007

Playing on its home campus for the first time ever, the TC3 baseball team treated the home fans to a pair of wins Tuesday, blanking SUNY Canton 10-0 in the opener before pulling out a dramatic 6-5 win in game two. TC3 improves to 2-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference, 3-3 in Region III play and 3-10 overall. Canton falls to 0-4 in the MSAC and 3-7 both overall and in regional action.
 
Playing at TC3's new on-campus baseball park, the Panthers wasted little time in jumping ahead of the visiting Kangaroos in game one. After pitcher Mark Kinner (Marathon HS/Marathon) set down Canton in order in the top of the first, Tatsuya Hagiwara (Japan) led off the bottom of the inning with a double to left. After an out, Jesse Stiffen (Bishop Maginn HS/Selkirk) laced a double to the right field fence to score Hagiwara and give TC3 the early lead. After a walk and another out, Alfred Johnson (South Broward HS/Hollywood, Fla.) delivered a two-out RBI single to make it 2-0 after one inning.
 
Kinner again made short work of Canton in the second and the TC3 bats again came to life in the bottom of the inning, this time scoring two runs on three hits, including a double by Gordon Begent (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) and a two-run single by Eric Longwell (Avoca HS/Avoca). TC3 tacked on three more runs in the fourth and two more in the fifth. The game was called after Longwell led off the sixth with a single and scored on a double by Stiffen, making the score 10-0.
 
Kinner earned the complete game win, allowing just one infield hit while striking out five. Stiffen and Longwell each 3-for-4, with Stiffen driving in four and Longwell three. Hagiwara and Tomoyoshi Fujiwara (Japan) each rapped out two hits.
 
Game two opened with Canton scoring for the first time, pushing across an unearned run in the top of the first. The Panthers took the led in the bottom of the second as Morgan Allis (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) delivered a two-run double before coming around to score on a single by Hagiwara. The score remained 3-1 until the top of the fifth when Canton scored three on a bases-loaded single to take the lead at 4-3. Canton added another run in the top of the sixth, putting TC3 behind 5-3 with just six outs left in the game.
 
In the bottom of the sixth, TC3 responded. Andrew Foster (Cortland HS/Cortland) ripped a pinch-hit double to open the frame. After an out, Hagiwara singled and stole second, putting the tying runs in scoring position. After the second out, Stiffen delivered with a clutch single to tie the game. In the top of the seventh, TC3 pitcher Ryan Driscoll (Union Springs HS/Auburn) set Canton down without scoring, setting the stage for the dramatic finish.
 
In the bottom of the seventh, Stefan Whittenburg (Lansing HS/Groton), who had entered the game in the top of the inning, opened the inning ripped a triple to right center. Canton responded by intentionally walking the next two batters to load the bases and bringing Begent to the plate. With the infield in, Begent delivered a clean single to left to score the game winner.
 
Driscoll earned the complete game win, striking out seven while allowing just six hits and three earned runs. Stiffen went 3-for-4 with two RBI and Hagiwara finished 2-for-4 with one RBI.

Saturday, March 10, 2007

The contest against Community College of Baltimore County-Catonsville marked the return of the sport to TC3 after a 25-year absence. Unfortunately for the Panthers, the return ended in defeat, as a bad sixth inning led to a lopsided 17-5 loss in TC3's first time outdoors this season.

TC3 responded with a run in the top of the third, but Catonsville added two more in the bottom of the inning before scoring again in the fourth to take a 6-1 lead. The Panthers pulled to within 6-3 with a pair in the top of the fifth, and after keeping the home team off the board in the bottom of the frame, made it a one-run game with another two runs in the top of the sixth. The 6-5 score didn't last long, as Catonsville exploded for ten runs in the bottom of the sixth to put the game out of reach.
 
Gordon Begent (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) had a strong game at the plate, going 2-for-4 with three RBI. Alfred Johnson (South Broward HS/Hollywood, Fla.) went 2-for-3 with a double and one RBI and Jonathon Concepcion (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh) finished 2-for-4 with one RBI.
