The Kellogg Community College baseball team is on a five game winning streak after defeating the JV squad from Davenport University 15-8 on the road Tuesday.

The latest win comes off a doubleheader sweep of Macomb Community College in the Bruins’ home opener on Monday, including a 20-0 blowout in game one.

Freshman pitcher Zach Marshall (Rockford/Rockford High School) pitched four innings for the win on Tuesday, striking out three with two hits and one earned run.

At the plate for the Bruins, sophomore infielder Connor Hnilo (Caledonia/Caledonia High School) hit 4-5 with 4 RBIs, freshman infielder Justin Ratliff (Battle Creek/Lakeview High School) hit 2-4 with two RBIs and freshman outfielder Kyle VanLiere (Mattawan/Mattawan High School) hit 2-5.

“Zach Marshall had a strong start and Ryan Vought was excellent in relief,” KCC’s Head Baseball Coach Eric Laskovy said. “We will work hard to clean up the defensive miscues moving forward.”

The Bruins play next on Saturday, March 13, against Macomb Community College in Warren. As of this writing, the team’s next home game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 21, against Jackson College at Bailey Park in Battle Creek.

All home games are free and open to the public.
