PLATTSBURGH — The Clinton Community College baseball team had the bats working well in the first game, but couldn’t keep up with SUNY Adirondack in the second game Tuesday.
Eric Rock helped the Cougars (3-7) grab a 9-6 win in the first leg of the doubleheader.
Rock finished with three hits and four RBI as well as a home run.
Joe Tolosky slapped a double and finished the game with three hits. Jamie Davison, a former Northeastern Clinton standout, belted two hits, including a double.
“We swung the bats a lot better (Tuesday),” Clinton coach Tom Neale said. “We played OK, but still made some mistakes. But, we played better.”
Anthony Porcelli went the distance, surrendering six runs and 11 hits in the win.
In the second game, though, a four-run first inning helped the Timberwolves collect a 13-3 win.
Tolosky hit his second double of the afternoon, while Davison accounted for two more hits. Chris Roenbeck cracked a home run.
Kristian Sherman was tagged with the loss.
“Some unforced errors cost us, especially in the second game,” Neale said. “But we’re a work in progress.”

COUGARS DROP TWO
TROY — The Clinton Community College softball team was much more competitive in its first game against Hudson Valley Community College.
Tuesday, though, being competitive just wasn’t enough.
The Cougars (0-7) dropped a pair of road games, losing 7-6 and 9-1.
In the first of two games, Clinton committed six fielding errors.
“We need to cut down on our errors,” coach Sami Stoughton said. “They cost us some runs (Tuesday). If we were to cut that down, I think we would’ve had a potential chance at winning.”
