Keyser, WV- Sinclair Community College has had one of the most successful programs in all of JUCO baseball the last five years. The one aspect that has escaped them is a trip to the NJCAA Division II World Series. If this weekend's sweep over Potomac State is any indication, the Tartan Pride will be punching their ticket in May.

Led by strong performances on the mound, Sinclair completed a three-game sweep over PSC at Golden Park this weekend. Game one starting pitcher Jon Thacker turned in another very strong performance with his first complete game of the season in a 14-2 win. In Game two Pride starter Ian Creager continued his dominance this season over hitters as the sophomore struck out nine hitters in his first five innings of work leading SCC to a 4-1 extra inning win.

In game three Stephen Holland provided another great outing with six strikeouts in seven innings of work as the Pride rallied late for a 2-1 win.

Potomac State scored just four runs in 23 innings of baseball.

The series sweep extends Sinclair’s streak to four and overall record to 10-2.

Potomac State, (5-7) heads on the road for a mid-week double header with Cecil College on Wednesday. Game time is 1:00 p.m. Cecil defeated Potomac State earlier this season by a score of 2-0 at the Pepsi Invitational in Florence, SC.
