FREDERICK, Md. – The Frederick Community College baseball team recorded their sixth win in a row as they defeated the Raptors from Montgomery College by the score of 12-2 in seven innings. With the victory, FCC sits at 25-7 on the year, including 6-4 in conference play.

Can't beat fun at the ol' ballpark. What a gorgeous day for some baseball. FCC starting pitcher Kyle Raubenstine (7 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 4 Ks) set the tone early and was in complete command the entire game. Raubenstine carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning before giving up two runs to the Raptors. He would pick up the win on the mound and remains a perfect 5-0 on the season.

FCC bats were as hot as the temperature today! The Cougars pounded out 16 hits, including three round-trippers by Thomas Gonzalez (2-for-4, HR, 2 RBI), Tyler Robinson (1-1, HR 1 RBI), and Brady Harju (2-for-3, HR, 2 BB, 4 RBI). "Gonzo" and Robinson went back-to-back in the seventh, followed by Harju's blast to end the game!

Leadoff man Maciah Thomas had a solid day at the dish going 3-for-4 while scoring two runs. Teammate Ryan Capstick also tallied three hits on the day, including two doubles as he continue to heat up for the Cougars. Jett Manning went 2-for-3 (3B) and stole his 22nd and 23rd base on the year!
