Western Wildcats Win First World Series Game

Pitching, pitching and more pitching. Starter Cole Rohrbough and relievers Dan Grubbs and Stephen Sauer led Western Nevada Community College (40-22-2) to a 2-0 victory against Delgado Community College on Saturday in their first game at the National Junior College World Series in Grand Junction, Colo. The Wildcats will now play No. 1-ranked New Mexico Junior College on Monday, May 28, at 1 p.m. PST, in the double elimination, ten-team tournament.

Rohrbough pitched a brilliant game in probably the biggest game of his career. He allowed only three hits and struck out 12 in 7.1 shutout innings. Grubbs relieved him in the eighth and struck out the two batters he faced. Sauer continued his excellent finishes by pitching a 1-2-3 scoreless ninth.

Andrew Reid had an RBI single in the eighth inning for Western's first run and Kyle Bondurant added an RBI single in the ninth for an insurance run. Bondurant, Brad Carlsen, and Andrew Ferguson had two hits apiece in the game.

The Wildcats are a perfect 9-0 in the post-season against some of the top baseball programs in the country. They opened the Scenic West Athletic Conference playoffs with a 3-0 win against Colorado Northwestern Community College, a 5-0 victory over the College of Southern Idaho, and a 6-0 win in a rematch with CNCC in Twin Falls, Idaho. WNCC then won the SWAC Region XVIII Championship with two 6-4 victories against No. 16-ranked Community College of Southern Nevada in Henderson. The Wildcats then advanced to the Western Regionals where they defeated Central Arizona College 5-4, Western Nebraska Community College 11-8, and CAC again 13-10.
