GREENSBURG, Pa. - The heavy hitting Bobcat lineup scored a total of 27 runs in two playoff victories over visiting Pitt-Bradford to clinch their third straight trip to the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Baseball Championships.
They'd take a back and forth opener by an 11-9 score, then leave no doubt in the nightcap, with a 16-0 shutout of the Panthers.
The playoff sweep moves Pitt-Greensburg's record to 23-15-1 on the year while Pitt-Bradford's season comes to an end with an 8-18-1 mark. 23 wins in 2015 sets a new school-high, edging the 22 victory total the Bobcats posted during their playoff run a year ago.
Chad Jacob, a Chartiers Valley graduate, singled to centerfield for his 60th hit of the season in game one, breaking his own record of 59, set a just one year ago.
