Matadors Season Comes To An End
Derek Diesner
Apr. 26th, 2014

YUMA, AZ – The Scottsdale Fighting Artichokes came into Kammann Field Saturday and swept the Arizona Western College Matadors by finals of 3-2 and 11-6, ending the Matadors season and crushing their slim playoff chances.
 
With the victories, Scottsdale improves to 32-20-1 overall and 22-16 in ACCAC play. With the losses, the Matadors end their 2014 season with an overall record of 31-24 and 16-22 in ACCAC action.
                
In game one, it was a low scoring affair between the Artichokes and the Matadors, with Scottsdale striking first for a run in the second inning. It was scoreless until the sixth inning when Scottsdale score two more runs and then the Matadors responded with a run of their own. AWC would add one more run in the seventh, but fall short with the bases loaded by a final of 3-2.
 
Brandon Anderson (5-6) took the tough luck loss going all seven innings and allowed just two earned runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts. Alex Lownes (1-1) got the win for Scottsdale as he threw four innings of no-hit ball. The Artichokes bullpen kept the no-hitter intact for one more inning before allowing the first hit in the sixth that eventually score the first run of the game for the Matadors.
 
In game two, Scottsdale jumped on Matador starter Tanner McAninch (5-4) in the third inning and never looked back. The Artichokes plated three runs in the third inning, four in the fourth, two in the fifth and another two in the eighth. In the end, Scottsdale tallied 11 runs on 13 hits in an 11-6 game two victory.
 
The Matadors struggled defensively in game two, as they made a total of five errors. After having just two hits in game one, AWC’s offense mashed out nine hits and six runs. Nick Day led the offense going 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI.
 
The Matadors season came to an end Saturday as they said goodbye to Sophomores Daniel Gonzales, Travis Garcia-Perreria, Jose Rosales-Rodarte, Ryan Escobar, Omar Celaya, Beau Cebulski, Michael Rosenkrantz, and Brandon Anderson. Stay tuned to the Matador Athletics website and our Facebook and Twitter pages for constant updates on all things Matadors during the offseason.
