The Cosumnes River College Hawks won big Thursday afternoon, almost getting a complete-game shutout against the Skyline College Trojans with a final score of 13-1.

This win comes after three victories, the prior win being against Skyline on Jan. 30 when they won 8-3.

The Hawks got the ball rolling in the second inning, when the team first scored two runs. From there, they were nearly able to get at least one run in each inning until the end. Cosumnes River College head coach Don Mico credited the team’s confidence to their pitching ability, more so than their earlier win against Skyline.

“It all dictates from pitching,” Mico said. “Our pitching is our main source.”

The coach’s words ring true, as sophomore pitcher Josh Congress faced 19 batters over the first five innings before switching out with three more pitchers, sophomores Aj Wood and Timmy Tarrant and freshmen Kyle Galart, during the last half of the game.

“Our team’s coming together much quicker than I thought,” Congress said. “We’re really putting together the pitching, the hitting – coming together as a team and trusting the process.”

The big play of the game that gave the Hawks an even wider lead came during the bottom of the fifth, when left fielder Burle Dixon hit a grand slam at 320 yards. Many cheers were made by the CRC team as their fellow players ran over the home plate.

Another player to note is freshmen second baseman and shortstop JD Mico, who is the son of head coach Don Mico. JD Mico bunt the ball toward the end of the second inning, allowing center fielder Jared Alameida to score a run. JD Mico said he knew it was going to be a good play.

“Every time I’m up to the plate, I always am told to read the defense…I do whatever they give me and it felt like a great time to do it,” JD Mico said.

As far as continuing the win streak, right fielder Aaron Pierce said he feels excited.

“We’re excited to see where it goes,” Pierce said. “We wanna sweep, we wanna keep streaking and keep winning and keep the momentum going.”

But Coach Don Mico said they just take it one game at a time.

“One game at a time, pitch by pitch and keep it simple,” Don Mico said.
