Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, April 22, 2015 lC SPORTS AND R.E C 1KEAT I ON .... 1 JMAS COUNTY I ..................................... ...... ] FRC baseball clinches ninth GVC title It was d6j vu all over again at the Eagles Nest on Saturday, April 18, when the Feather River College Golden Eagles clinched the Golden Valley Conference championship after a doubleheader split with Butte College. If the story sounds familiar, that's because it is. For nine consecutive springs, FRC has won the regular season GVC crown. Needing just one win in two attempts today, Coach Terry Baumgartner's team accomplished the feat in game two of the twinbill with a 5-3 win. The Roadrunners won the opener, 4-1. That puts the champion Golden Eagles at 26-8 on the season, while Butte fell to 21-13. In league play, FRC clinched the pennan, t with a 20-3 record (Butte is 16-7), leading the Roadrunners by four games with just two regular season games to play. Baumgartner's team will wrap up conference action next Thursday (April 23) with a home doubleheader against Shasta College. Start time is 1 p.m. . "We said at the beginning of the season that our fzrst goal was to repeat as conference champions," said Baumgartner, who has been the head coach for eight of those title runs and was an assistant for the other. "Like it has been all year long, today was a group effort that ended with a positive result." The second-place Roadrunners made sure that the celebration was delayed by shutting down the hosts in the first game, 4-1. Feather River could only manage six hits (all singles) in the game against the pitching combo of Keifer Sivret and Brandon Facha. FRC's only run was unearned. Four of the six hits came from the bats of Nathan Reynolds and Greg Darms. Meanwhile, O'Keeffe Hall suffered his f'wst loss of the year (8-1) despite giving up only two runs in six innings of work. But FRC salvaged the day in the nightcap. Eli Putnam got the home team off to a solid start in the first inning with a solo home run and his teammates added three more runs in the third to tatce a 4-0 lead. Butte came back to within two runs late in the contest but closer Christian Charles fanned seven batters in just 2.1 innings of work, including three strikeouts in the ninth inning, to shut the door. Connor Briare improved to 9-0 on the year with the win, going six stanzas and allowing only two earned runs. The hosts kept the pressure on offensively all day with 14 hits, including two each by Putnam, Darms, Gage Matuszak, Michael Sanderson, David Rapanot and Peter Shearer. Five hundred twenty-one fans enjoyed the crown-clinching win. No name other than Feather River has been etched on the GVC trophy since 2007. "Our guys take pride in that fact, and have respect for what other Feather River players have done before them," Baumgartner said. "It was a good day, but we still have work to do." After the regular season finale next Thursday, the Golden Eagles will gear up for regional competition, which is scheduled to begin May 1. Despite throwing for his first loss of the season, O'Keeffe Hall gave up only two runs in stx innings of work against Butte College in the early game last weekend.
