On Monday March 27 the Skyline Trojans lost 3-1 against the Hartnell College Panthers.

Asked to appear in his eleventh game of the season, Tyler Cyr was the starting pitcher for the day. The first batter of the day, centerfielder Jordan Holler, hit a homerun over the right field wall. Cyr then continued in the game for eight innings allowing only six hits,
six walks, four strikeouts and one earned run on the day.

“Tyler pitched a great game; he pitched 8 innings and kept us there,” Coach Nomicos said. “We just didn’t get any hits today, we got two hits. Their pitcher did a great job pitching. We lined out a bunch of times. And today we just couldn’t get a clutch hit.”

Panthers starting pitcher Andrew Astone had a no-hitter continuing on into the bottom of the fourth inning; that was stopped after catcher Colton Hicks hit his first homerun of the season and tied the game 1-1.

“It felt nice, the best pitch I had seen all day,” Hicks said. “We lost so it didn’t really help much, but it was nice to hit the first homerun of the season finally.”

The Panthers (9-13) pitching was the dominating factor of the game; Astone went all nine inning before the game went into extras and Jonathan Farino took over for the rest of the game. Both Farino and Astone allowed two hits, one earned run and struck out ten altogether for the day. Panthers’ second basemen Robert Wayman hit a two-run homerun in the top of the tenth to win the game.

“Well I think they just hit the balls hard, just right at me you know and the umpire didn’t help us out at all. It was one of those games.” Pitcher Forest Armanino said.

With this loss to the Panthers the Trojans are now 4-19 on the season and will have a five game home stand starting on Thursday March 29.
