Baseball: Great Season Comes To An End In NWAC Tournament As Titans Finish 3rd

Great Season Comes To An End In NWAC Tournament As Titans Finish 3rd photo6/4/2015 3:11:00 PM - Longview, WA - The 2015 campaign for the TCC Titans came to an end on Sunday, Day 4 of the NWAC Tournament. Tacoma finished the season at 36-14 and placed 3rd at the tournament, its highest finished under Coach Mummert. The Titans took on the defending champions, Edmonds Tritons, in their opening round game of the tournament. Edmonds ended TCC’s historic season last year in extra innings of the tournament, but this year would be different. After going scoreless over the first 3 innings, the Titans would erupt for 9 runs over the next 4 inning giving them a 9-0 lead. Edmonds would scratch out a few more runs in an attempt to get back in the game but it wasn’t enough as TCC took game 1 of the tournament 9-4. Justin Vernia recorded his 11th win of the year and Alex Hull led the offense with 4 hits on the day. Day 2 featured TCC against Mt Hood. The Titan offense would explode in the 1st inning with 5 runs right out of the gate. Starter Cory Main was given a 5-1 lead but was unable to hold it. Cory Main would get the start but struggled to hold the lead. Mt Hood would tie the game at 5 in the 4th and Main would give way to the bullpen. Reliever Dustin Wilson would hold Mt Hood to only 1 run over 5.1 innings of work giving TCC a chance to win. With the score tied 6-6 in the bottom of the 9th with 1 out and a runner on 2B, Alex Hull would single home the winning run giving TCC the walk-off win, 7-6. After starting the tournament 2-0, Day 3 matched TCC with West-Foe Lower Columbia. Lower Columbia would get on the scoreboard first as the Titans would make 4 errors in the first 3 innings giving LCC a 3-1 advantage. Tacoma would tie the game at 3-3 in the 5th with a Jake Vieth 2 RBI single. The game would go back and forth tied at 4-4 and require extra innings. A Titan error and HBP would lead to 2 Red Devil runs and eventually sink the Titans into the loser’s bracket. With only 4 teams remaining in the tournament and after an almost 4 hour extra innings game the night before, Tacoma had to regroup and get ready for another match up against Mt Hood in a loser out game. Mt Hood would jump out to a 5-1 lead on Titan starter Zach Rohrbach, who would give way to the bullpen in the 5th. Down 7-1 in the 6th, TCC would get a spark. The Titans would put 2 on the board and threaten with more but trying to stretch a single into a double, Nathan Heath would get thrown out at 2B, ending the Titan threat. Tacoma would not get closer and eventually lose the game 7-3, ending the run in the tournament. "It was a great run. I think the game against LCC took a lot out of us as it was such an emotional, hard fought game,” said Head Coach Ryan Mummert. "The injury bug really started to take its toll as well, but I give our guys a ton of credit for just doing everything they could to gut it out. Very resilient group. I'm especially grateful for all things this Sophomore class has given this program." The Titans finished the year with a 36-14 record, 2nd most wins in program history, and reached 30+ wins for the 4th year in a row. TCC has the most wins of any other program in the NWAC over the past 4 years with an overall record of 140-51.
