BEAVERS BLANKED BY DVC

 April 22, 2014

Box Score | Stats

American River College was shut out by Diablo Valley College 6-0 at Viking Field in Concord on Tuesday.  It marked the 5th time this season that the Beavers have been shut out.  DVC got out to an early lead off of Beavers starter Thomas Peterson (DeLaSalle) as the second pitch of the game was drilled to center for a triple, then the next batter singled on the first pitch he saw to put A.R.C. in a hole.  Peterson showed flashes of being his dominant self but also struggled putting hitters away at times as he lasted 4 innings, allowing 5 runs on 7 hits.  Sophomore lefty Ben Krauth threw a complete game shutout.  Krauth leads the state in ERA, and strikeouts, is second in innings pitched and is 9th in the state in strikeouts per nine innngs.

The Beavers final home game is Thursday against Diablo Valley College at 2:30 p.m.

BEAVERS BLASTED IN HOME FINALE

 April 24, 2014

Box Score | Stats

Diablo Valley College continued their dominant pitching and hot hitting early in the game to down the Beavers 11-0 in the 2014 home finale.  Sophomore left-hander Chase Hunt-Murray (Davis) got the start and gave up singles to 6 of the first 7 batters he faced in allowing the Vikings a 4 run first inning.  DVC added a run in the 2nd after a leadoff double was followed by an RBI single.  Hunt-Murray settled down after that and did not allow a run in the 3rd inning.  Sophomore Sam Anderson (Woodcreek) threw three strong innings, allowing just an unearned run in three innings.  Anderson needed just 26 pitches through three innings, 22 of which were strikes.  Sophomore Robert Mashburn (Christian Brothers) had a shaky 7th inning, as he allowed 5 runs, including a three run home run, the first ball hit out of Beaver Field this year.  Sophomore Jay Standen (Woodcreek) did not allow a run in an inning and a third and freshman Brian Evangelisti (Oakmont) got the final two outs for the Beavers.

Offensively the Beavers were unable to put together many rallies off of starter Johnny York, who threw a complete game 4 hitter.  The Beavers threatened in the 3rd after DH Jimmy Lunardelli (Oakmont) reached on an error to lead off the inning, then was bunted to second by C Wade Brill (Woodcreek).  SS Michael Hatfield (Del Campo) singled to center but was thrown out trying to get to second on the throw when Lunardelli was held at third.  Sophomore CF AJ Phillips popped up to end the inning.

The Beavers conclude the 2014 season tomorrow at Diablo Valley College for a game scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m.

Team Playoff-Norcal Final

April 19, 2014

ARC: 3   Fresno City: 5

Conference: 8-0               Overall: 15-3

ARC came out firing in the doubles, going up an early break in each of the three matches. Unfortunately, #3 team Nic Atkinson/Nick Cardoza were unable to hold on, but #2 Jimmy Giovannini/Kevin Valentine and #1 Adam Duong/Lovedeep Singh both posted solid victories against their tough Ram opponents. In the singles, the Beavers lost at #3, #5, and #6 quickly to fall behind 4-2, but Duong kept the Beavers alive with a 6-3, 6-4 win at #4. The last two matches on were #1 Singh and #2 Valentine. As Singh won his second set to push his match to a third set, Valentine lost his second set tie-breaker after fighting off five match points to relinquish the team match, and thus the Beavers team season. It was an extremely successful year for the Beavers and it matches their best regional playoff run since they won the state title in 1966. The team still has the individual state championships at Ojai to play. The top four singles players and all three doubles teams qualified for the event. It will start on Thursday, April 24th. Among the seeded Beaver singles players are Singh (#1 Norcal), Valentine (#7 Norcal), Giovannini (#10 Norcal), and Duong (#14 Norcal). In the doubles Duong/Singh will enter the tournament as the #1 team from the north and Giovannini/Valentine will be the #6 seed from Norcal.

BEAVERS STRUGGLE ON “D”, LOSE SERIES TO SIERRA

 April 18, 2014

Box Score | Stats

A number of defensive miscues allowed Sierra College to score 3 unearned runs and defeat the Beavers 9-6 at Beaver Field on Friday.  Sierra scored twice in the first on an error by 1B Cole Ebner (El Camino) which could have cut down a run at the plate and gotten the Beavers and starter Jake Campbell out of the first unscathed.  Sierra jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the 4th on a bizarre play in which the Sierra baserunner was stealing second but the ball was put in play with a chopper to third.  A.R.C. 3B Austin Call (Oakmont) realized that he was not going to be able to get the out at first so he turned to third to get the runner trying to advance but he dropped the ball.  When the runner realized that nobody was left covering the plate he broke for home and won the footrace to the plate, scoring from first on a ball that was hit about 75 feet.  A double and a single later and Sierra was up 5-0.  The Beavers got off the matt though and closed the score to 5-3 in the 6th after back-to-back two out doubles by RF Alex Gaskin (Jesuit) and CF Brandon Raposa (Woodcreek) scored three runs.  Sierra came right back in the top of the 7th after Beavers reliever Mike Marlar (Casa Roble) walked the bases loaded then allowed a 2 run single to Wolverine 1B Dalton Blaser.  Marlar had retired the first 6 batters in order that he faced before walking 3 of the next 4.  The 8th run of the day for Sierra scored when C Wade Brill’s (Woodcreek) throw to third to try and get the stealing baserunner sailed into left field.  The Beavers answered the bell again, scoring twice in the bottom of the 7th on a Cole Ebner two run single up the middle.  Sierra got their final run in the 8th off of closer Patrick Upchurch (Rancho Bernardo) when Sierra’s catcher Max Magleby tripled in a run with two outs.  Once again though A.R.C. closed the lead back to three when Gaskin tripled to open the bottom of the 8th then scored on a passed ball.  The Beavers threatened in the bottom of the 9th, bringing the tying run to the plate with 1 out but could not get any more runs in. 

The Beavers close out the 2014 season with a three game series against Diablo Valley College next week.  A.R.C. travels to Concord on Tuesday and Friday, with the Vikings coming to Beaver Field for the season’s final home game on Thursday at 2:30.

BEAVERS DOWN SIERRA 2-1 ON THE ROAD

 April 17, 2014

Box Score

American River College scored early but not often, and it was enough as a stellar pitching performance by freshman lefty Matt Gunter (Bella Vista) and closer Patrick Upchurch (Rancho Bernardo) held up to give the Beavers a 2-1 win at Sierra on Thursday.  DH Tyler Smith (Del Campo) walked in the first then stole second.  1B Cole Ebner (El Camino) then singled in Smith with a line drive off the glove of Sierra 3B Brandon Flynton.  Ebner picked up another RBI in the third, driving in 2B Steve Mercado (Antelope) who had stolen 2nd after reaching on a fielders choice.  The Wolverines added a run in the bottom of the third but Gunter managed to pitch out of a bases loaded jam with minimal damage.  The Beavers had chances to blow the game open but had a pair of runners thrown out at the plate, one in the 4th inning and one in the 8th.  The two teams play the rubber match of the series at Beaver Field on Friday at 1:00 p.m.

Team Playoff Round 2-Norcal Semifinal

April 15, 2014

ARC: 5   Foothill: 3

Conference: 8-0               Overall: 15-2

In a rematch of the Beavers only Northern California loss on the year, ARC came out strong and finished even stronger on the way to qualifying for their second straight Norcal championship match. In the doubles, #2 team Jimmy Giovannini/Kevin Valentine were dominant in their 8-2 win. At #3 Nic Atkinson/Nick Cardoza got off to a good start before losing their lead, but eventually finished the match in an exciting tiebreak. At match-point Cardoza ripped a backhand crosscourt and Atkinson finished it off with a crossing backhand volley. Heading into the singles ahead 2-1, the Beavers earned quick victories at #1 (Lovedeep Singh) and at #4 (Adam Duong), and Cardoza clinched the match with his 6-3, 6-2 win at #5. #3 player Giovannini was ahead 6-4, 5-2 (40-0) when the match was stopped due to Cardoza winning the 5th match for the Beavers.

BEAVERS DROP GAME TO WOLVERINES

  April 15, 2014

Box Score | Stats

American River College lost 7-2 to Sierra College on Tuesday.  Sierra got 11 hits, 10 singles off of Beaver starter Sam Anderson (Woodcreek) in the first three innings to jump out to a 6-0 lead.  RHP Thomas Peterson (DeLaSalle) came on in relief and threw 5 1/3 innings, allowing just 3 hits and a run in the 9th.  Freshman Mike Marlar (Casa Roble) came on in relief of Peterson in the 9th with the bases loaded and no outs.  After giving up a single on his first pitch to score the run charged to Peterson, Marlar struck out the next batter then got a 1-2-3 double play to end the inning.  The Beavers scored twice in the 6th inning as they loaded the bases with no outs.  1B Cole Ebner (El Camino) scored on a wild pitch, then Jimmy Lunardelli (Oakmont) hit a sacrifice fly to right to score 3B Austin Call (Oakmont) and move RF Alex Gaskin (Jesuit) up to 3rd.  Unfortunately that was all the runs that A.R.C. could score as C Wade Brill (Woodcreek) struck out and SS Michael Hatfield (Del Campo) grounded out to end the threat.

The two teams meet again on Thursday at Sierra College at 2:30 p.m.

BEAVERS COME UP JUST SHORT VERSUS BEAR CUBS

 April 10, 2014

Box Score | Stats

American River College fell to #7 ranked Santa Rosa Junior College 4-2 in 10 innings on Thursday at Beaver Field.  The Beavers were down 1-0 in the 6th when CF AJ Phillips (Visions) led off with a double down the right field line.  After a wild pitch moved him to third, 2B Steve Mercado (Antelope) singled Phillips in to tie the game.  3B Austin Call (Oakmont) then perfectly executed a hit & run, singling through the right side to move Mercado to third with no outs.  After RF Alex Gaskin (Jesuit) struck out Call appeared to get picked off of first but in the run-down Mercado was able to steal home and put the Beavers up 2-1.  The Beavers had a chance to add to the lead in the 7th but C Wade Brill (Woodcreek) was thrown out at the plate trying to score on an overthrow of home. 

Santa Rosa tied the game in the 8th as they loaded the bases with one out off of starter Matt Gunter (Bella Vista).  Patrick Upchurch (Rancho Bernardo) got an out on the first pitch, a ground out in which Steve Mercado made a diving play up the middle and was able to get the force out at 2nd, but the tying run scored.  The Bear Cubs had runners at 2nd and 3rd in the 9th but Upchurch was able to strike out the final batter of the inning.  Santa Rosa did load the bases again in the 10th after a couple of singles and a fielders’ choice in which they bunted back to the mound and the beavers were content with keeping the go ahead run from scoring.  After Upchurch struck out the next batter, Santa Rosa center fielder Matt Lococo singled through the left side to score two which was the deciding margin in the game. 

The Beavers get back on the bus tomorrow to go to Santa Rosa for a 2:30 game, the final game in the series.

Box Score | Stats

American River College got their first league win of the season, defeating #3 ranked Modesto J.C. 2-1 at Beaver Field on Thursday.  Freshman left-hander Matt Gunter (Bella Vista) struck out 10 over 7 2/3 innings in just his second start of the season.  He did not allow a hit until the 4th inning when he gave up a run scoring double to left after hitting the Pirates center fielder, Patrick Mulry with a pitch.  He would only allow two more hits the rest of the game.  Sophomore Patrick Upchurch (Rancho Bernardo) got the final four outs of the game, two on strikeouts, to pick up his 2nd save of the season.

 April 2, 2014

Box Score | Stats

American River College dropped a 9-4 decision to Modesto JC in Modesto on Wednesday, in a game that was rained out on Tuesday.  Wednesday’s game started slowly, as Modesto didn’t record a hit until the 4th inning off of starter Thomas Peterson (DeLaSalle).  The Beavers only had one hit through the first 3 innings, a single to left by LF Joe Williams (Jesuit) in the 2nd inning.  MJC got offensive in the 4th and 5th innings however, scoring 3 in the 4th and 4 in the 5th to chase Peterson from the game.  Peterson allowed 6 hits, but 4 were for extra bases.  He also had an uncharacteristic bout of wildness during the game, hitting a batter in each of the first five innings. 

The Beavers got one of the runs back in the top of the 5th on a Wade Brill (Woodcreek) ground ball to short which was misplayed for an error and scored Williams from 3rd, who had doubled.  In the 6th the Beavers answered back with a two run double by 1B Cole Ebner (El Camino) which scored two runs.  The Beavers added a run in the 9th as pinch-hitter Jon Kendall (Liberty Ranch) hit into a force play which drove in a run.

ARC: 3   Grossmont: 6

ARC: 6   Cerritos: 3

ARC: 9   L.A. Pierce: 0

The Beavers went 2-1 in the highly competitive North/South team tournament.

ARC was able to carry the momentum into the singles winning three of the six matches and holding on for a 6-3 dual-team victory over the Falcons. On day two ARC swept L.A.

BEAVERS COME UP SHORT OF RUNS IN CRC SERIES

 March 27, 2014 Box Score

 March 28, 2014 Box Score | Stats

American River College can at least say that the offense has been consistent as of late, as they managed just one run in each of the three games against #10 ranked Cosumnes River College.  Friday saw the Beavers fall 2-1 at home in a game that was moved up from Saturday to beat the rain that is predicted to show up this weekend.  Freshman 2B  Steve Mercado (Antelope) had the only RBI, driving in C Wade Brill (Woodcreek) with an infield single with 2 out in the 3rd inning.  Freshman RHP Jake Campbell (Rio Linda), was effective, limiting the Hawks to two runs, one earned on three hits through 8 innings.  A couple of defensive miscues proved costly to the Beavers however, as the Hawks scored their first run on a two out error by Mercado.  The Hawks took the lead for good in the 4th inning on a double steal in which the Beavers defensive play was supposed to keep the runner on third from scoring, but a miscommunication in the infield allowed the runner on third to score without a throw.

The Beavers face Modesto JC three times next week.

 March 22, 2014

Box Score | Stats

The score was much closer on Saturday, but the Beavers could not avoid getting swept by #2 ranked Delta College, falling 6-2 in Stockton.  A.R.C. had their chances, both to keep to Delta from scoring and to add to their own total, but the run scoring woes continued for the Beavers.  They Mustangs got to Beaver starter Jake Campbell (Rio Linda) as they scored in the 2nd, and again twice in the 4th and 5th innings to chase Campbell from the game.  A.R.C. managed to close the gap to 5-2 in the 6th thanks to an RBI ground out by 3B Austin Call (Oakmont) and a two out single from LF Joe Williams (Jesuit), who tallied his team leading 9th RBI of the season.  The Beavers had baserunners in 21 of the 27 innings of the series but only managed to score 4 runs, and in only 3 different innings.

BEAVERS POOR PLAY LEADS TO 5-0 LOSS

 March 11, 2014

Box Score | Stats

American River College was in a generous mood on Tuesday, basically handing Sac City 5 runs in the BIG 8 Conference opener.  The Panthers scored in the top of the first when the leadoff hitter of the game hit a pop-up that landed on the pitchers mound and was not caught by anybody.  The Panthers’ second run scored on a double steal of first and third, in which the ball was supposed to have been thrown back to starting pitcher Thomas Peterson (DeLaSalle) who missed the throw, allowing the run to score.  The Panthers third run scored on a dropped pop-up by Peterson with 2 outs.  Sac City started off the 8th with a ground ball to short which was misplayed by SS Michael Hatfield (Del Campo) for an error.  That runner later scored as did another with two outs after a pair of walks by reliever Matt Gunter (Bella Vista). 

Offensively the Beavers were held in check by Sac City ace Ben Ritchie, who threw a complete game shutout, scattering four hits with 8 strikeouts, five of them looking. 

1B Cole Ebner (El Camino) had a pair of singles for the Beavers.  A.R.C. drives down to South Sacramento on Thursday for a night game at Union Stadium, beginning at 6:00 p.m.

March 8, 2014

ARC-4    Foothill-5

Season: 4-1         Conference: 3-0

The Beavers lost for the first time on the season in a nail biter to the Foothill Owls. The two teams entered the match at #2 (ARC) and #3 (Foothill) in Northern California. ARC started off strong, winning the doubles lines at #1 and #2 against very solid Foothill teams. At #3 doubles the Beavers came out flat and were unable to come back from an early deficit. Heading into the singles ARC needed at least a split in the remaining 6 matches. Lovedeep Singh (#1) and Hien Bui (#6) each pulled out straight set wins, but the Beavers were unable to muster another singles victory to earn the dual-team win. Coming closest were Kevin Valentine (#3) and Adam Duong (#4), each of whom lost a 10-point match tie-break in lieu of a third set. Duong battled back from an 8-4 deficit in the 10-point match tie-break to even the score at 9-9, but was unable to keep the momentum going, eventually falling 11-9. The Beavers will next face conference rival Sierra on March 11th in the first of three tough matches scheduled for this week.

Beavers slither away with win at Solano

 February 25, 2014

Box Score | Stats

American River College defeated Solano College 6-5 in 10 innings on Tuesday in Fairfield.  The Beavers played one of their sloppiest games of the season but still managed to come out with the win thanks to some big defensive plays and a couple of key pinch hits.  The Beavers got on the board early when CF AJ Phillips (Visions) led off the game with a walk and stole second.  LF Tyler Smith (Del Campo) promptly singled to right to score Phillips.  DH Joe Williams (Jesuit) then doubled over the right fielders head to send Smith to third, who then got caught off the bag and got in a rundown.  Williams preceded to advance to third but when Smith got back to third safely Solano’s third baseman tagged both runners, which forced Williams to be out.  Smith then mistakenly got off the base and was tagged out also, killing the rally.

Solano managed to scrap for 7 hits and 4 runs off of Northern California Pitcher of the Week Thomas Peterson (DeLa Salle) who was uncharacteristically wild, and the Beavers defense committed a season high 5 errors. 

C Wade Brill (Woodcreek) saved the Beavers a couple of times, once by picking off a runner at third with no outs in the 2nd inning and by making a great pick of a bad throw to tag a runner out at the plate in the 5th inning.

The Beavers trailed 5-3 entering the 9th but a pinch hit double by freshman Alex Gaskin (Jesuit) and a two out pinch hit double by Jimmy Lunardelli (Oakmont) tied the game to send it to extra innings.  Tyler Smith led off the 10th with a bunt base hit and then stole 2nd, his first stolen base of the season.  After a fly out to right moved Smith to third, 1B Cole Ebner (El Camino) picked up his 3rd hit of the game and his  first RBI to put the Beavers in the lead for the first time since the 2nd inning. 

Patrick Upchurch threw a career high 3 innings to pick up his first win of the season, striking out three while allowing just one hit.

The Beavers are scheduled to play Contra Costa College at home on Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
