CLARENDON, Texas – The McCook Community College baseball team lost a pair of games to Clarendon College Friday 5-3 and 12-5.

MCC ran into a buzzsaw in the mound in Game 1 and struggled in numerous areas in the Game 2 loss.

“Myles Chabi threw a pretty good Game 1 start,” said MCC Coach Jon Olsen. “They had some guys that can swing the bat and he controlled them outside of one 0-2 pitch that they drove in two runs off of, but he was good and we defended the field.”

MCC didn’t score any runs off CC starter Joel Hogan until the final inning.

“It was the best arm we have been up again this spring so far, he was really good, we obviously didn’t get anything going until the seventh, but it was a good game.”

The coach said Game 2 was more of what has plagued the team all year -- too many free passes, too many defensive miscues, not enough at the plate.

“We have things we can do well we just have to do them on a much more consistent level,” said Olsen. “We have some good arms going tomorrow and I am looking forward to getting back to it.”

Clarendon improves to 3-1. MCC falls to 1-6. The two teams will conclude the three-game series with a nine-inning game Saturday starting a 1 p.m.
