Pitching woes sink Kirkwood baseball

Kirkwood baseball coach Todd Rima is searching desperately for  pitchers who can get somebody out.

Anyone interested should look for Rima at Johnson Hall. He'll be the  guy hiding under his desk.

Kirkwood lost three games Monday to DMACC by the ugly scores of 12-11,  11-8 and 12-4 in league affairs at Kirkwood.

The 12-11 loss came in 11 innings and was the final score of a game  that was suspended on Saturday due to darkness. The 11-8 and 12-4  setbacks came in an ICCAC doubleheader that followed.

The three losses dropped the Eagles to 21-14 overall and 8-8 in the  conference. DMACC raised its records to 25-11 overall and 13-3 in the  league.

Kirkwood's team earned run average has ballooned to 5.96, compared to  a respectable team ERA of 4.40 last year when the Eagles reached the  junior college World Series.

Saturday's suspended game was tied, 11-11, in the bottom of the 10th  when it became too dark to continue. DMACC hit a home run in the top  of the 11th Monday for the 12-11 victory.

Brennan Brister went 4-for-5 in the 12-11 defeat. Gabe Luxx was  3-for-5. Zion Pettigrew and Kal Youngquist hit home runs. Six pitchers  surrendered 12 runs on 17 hits.

Taylor Jackson was 4-for-4 in the 11-8 defeat. Pettigrew was 3-for-4.  Youngquist hit another homer.

Jamarion Loston went 3-for-4 with three RBIs in the 12-4 setback.
