Island Invitational Recap/Week 3 Recap/Teams of the Week/Players of the Week

Island Invitational

So going into the Island Invitational if you would have said it ended the way it did i think most people would be surprised. That though is not a diss by any means to any team that took part in this the past weekend. The teams that surprised almost everyone were Temple and Western Texas. 

Both teams coming into the weekend had a lot to prove. Temple had played 3 games against JV Teams and did not really get to see what they were made of. Now this weekend their Bats came alive as well as their pitching showed up. Going 3-0 is never an easy task but going 3-0 against the opponents that they did should tell you a lot about what is going on over there. 

Western Texas was the other big surprise this weekend going 2-1 with wins over both Alvin and Galveston. Western Texas showed that they are not to be understated when it comes to playing this year. With the west of Region 5 pretty wide open at this point with no Clear top dog yet it would not surprise  us if Western made a strong case at making their way to a Regional for the first time in a long time.

Teams of the Week 
#12 Chipola

As you saw in our Top Plays of the week, Chipola ended one of their games with a bang in a 3-Run Walk off homer to seal the deal in the 12 inning. This though was just part of their impressive week. 

The Indians took 4 games from #15 Florida Southwestern. Other than the walk off in game 3 these games seemed fairly one sided.

In Game 1, they started off behind giving up 1 in the 2nd Then Scored 2 in both the 3rd and 4th off the bats of Cameraon Gray (Troy Commit) (1-3, 1 R, 2 RBI, HR) and Jozsef Rohrbacher (Mercer Commit) (1-3. 2 RBI, Double). Then Bo Bonds (UL-Lafayette Commit) came in in the 5 for a 9 out save striking out 4 while allowing just 2 runs of two solo shots.

In Game 2, Florida Southwestern Started with 3 runs in the top of the 1st before Chipola stepped on the Gas scoring 3 in the 1st 1 in the 3rd, 2 in the 4th and 3 in the 6th. That all came off the bats of Mark Black (1-4, 3 RBI, 1 R, HR), Dylan Goldstein (3-4, 1 R, 2 Doubles) and Jozsef Rohrbacher (Mercer Commit) (2-4, 1 RBI). On the mound Andrew Baker went 4 strong innings with 8 K’s while allowing the only 3 runs in the game. Cedric De Grandpre came in the 5th and finished the game with 8 K’s, No Walks, and just 2 Hits.

Game 3, was where the bats for both teams came alive. In every inning except the 8th, 10th, and 11th there were runs scored.  Dylan Goldstein was the “Savior” when it came down to the bottom of the 12th with a 3-Run homer to walk it off. 

Game 4, was another high scoring affair for both teams with only the 2nd and the 7th being the only innings that no runs were scored. Leading the way for Chipola was Cameron Gray (Troy Commit) (2-4, 4 RBI, 2 R, HR), Andre Tarver (2-4, 3 RBI, R, HR), and Alfonso Villalobos (3-3, 3 RBI, 2 R, HR)

#10 San Jac (Swept #7 Grayson)
Howard (Swept Wayland Baptist outsourcing them 58-13)

Week 1 2021 Teams and Players of the Week/Recap

As many of you, the opening weekend for the 2021 Junior College season was this past weekend. Although there were not many games to cover the entire country but we are going to give a quick recap of what happened from the nations top teams as well many that do not generally get the same love as some of the top schools.

Also this is the first week that we are not having a National Top 25. Even though we have had one every week since we started producing Junior College content we felt that with the slow start to the year and teams slowly getting back going we will give it a few weeks before we adjust anything as far as the National Rankings.

The top 5 teams (#1 Southern Nevada, #2 Wabash Valley, #3 McLennan, #4 John A. Logan, and #5 Walters State) did not play this weekend.

#6 Northwest Florida went 1-2 this past weekend with losses to both Miami Dade (12-5), and #15 Florida SouthWestern State (5-1), With a win over Hillsborough (12-5).

#7 Grayson played a 3 game set with Wharton and if you have listened to the most recent Juco Pod, then you know what happened in game 1 with a 20-6 Win. The next day during their double header they split the double header with a win in game one (9-5) and a loss in game two (4-7).

The next two teams in the top 10 did not play either (#8 Iowa Western and #9 Johnson County)

Rounding out the Top 10 is San Jac. They played a 4 game series with Baton Rouge. They went 3-1 on the weekend (6-1, 8-4, 4-7, and 16-10)

Teams of The Week
Here is a look at the teams that made the biggest moves or had huge weeks as a team for each division
Div 1: St. Petersburg (3-0)
Throughout this past weekend you could say this was one of the biggest surprises when we were looking at all the box scores. That to be said is not a dis by any means to St. Petersburg. They are always well coached, and are almost always a solid team. But, just like any team in florida they get overshadowed.

To kick off this weekend with two games Friday. The first was against Pensacola State. They won 8-7 in 7 innings behind the bats of Brayron Acevedo (1-4, HR RBI) and Zeph Hoffpauir (2-4, HR, 3 RBI).

In game two they took the win from #12 Chipola in a 6-4 contest. They were led by a solid team offensive game. The big key was Leo O’Shinkski in relief. He came in in the 5th and locked down Chipola with 3 innings allowing just 3 base runners (1 Hit, 2 Walks) to go with 6 K’s to keep them at bay.

To round out the weekend they won in a decisive manner against Sante Fe 8-1. Gabriel Ricones had a day going 3-4 with Homer, 2 RBI, and 2 runs.
Other Notable Weeks:
Central Florida (3-0)- Wins vs Pasco Hernando (23-1), #15 Florida SouthWestern State (11-7), Miami Dade (8-7)
Indian Rivers State (3-0)- Wins vs #21 State College of Florida (12-11), Santa Fe (12-8), Palm Beach State (6-2)

Players of the Week
This is a quick look at some of the top 4-5 weeks as both Hitters and Pitchers across the country.
