Ibesate caps big week, helps Jamestown extend win streak

Juneau’s Lance Ibesate had quite the week for the University of Jamestown in North Dakota.

The junior second baseman batted .476 [10-for-21] in six games and hit first college home run as the Jimmies pushed their win streak to 13 games.

Ibesate drove in 6 runs this week and now has 22 RBIs for the season.

He is hitting .383 in 40 games and is one of only four Jamestown players to hit for the cycle on the season.

Ibesate leads the team with 44 hits, 3 triples and 18 stolen bases. He is second with 36 runs.

Another outing, another money performance from Karnos

Western Nevada College again turned to Max Karnos of Anchorage out of the bullpen and again he delivered shutout relief.

The sophomore right-handed tossed four goose eggs and earned the winning decision as WNC beat College of Eastern Utah 3-0 in Nevada.

Karnos has been straight money this year.

The 6-foot-4 Alaskan improved to 5-4 and lowered his ERA to 1.81 in 74.1 innings.

Karnos, of South High fame, allowed just two hits and one walk while pitching to contact and trusting his defense to make the plays behind him. He struck out just one batter.

Whatever he’s doing it is working.

Karnos hasn’t allowed an earned run in his last 12.1 innings over three appearances.

Boyer flirts with no-no, settles for 1-hitter for Blue Mountain

A blooper was the only thing that denied Wasilla’s Jonathan Boyer a place among baseball royalty.

The freshman pitcher for Blue Mountain Community College in Washington flirted with a no-no before settling for a 1-hitter in a 13-0 win over Wenatchee Valley during NWAC action.

Boyer carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning before he gave up a soft base hit with one out. The 6-foot-t right-hander faced only 24 batters en route to throwing his first college complete game.

“I got a lot of first-pitch outs that they were swinging at, putting into play and getting out,” Boyer told the East Oregonian.

Boyer started the season in the bullpen and this was just his second appearance where he pitched more than one inning.

He was on a pitch count due to an elbow injury, but that didn’t hold him back.

“The last couple of weeks it’s started to feel pretty good and I’ve just let coach put me to work.”

Boyer, of Colony High fame, improved to 2-0 and lowered his ERA to 0.50 in 18 innings. He has allowed one run in the last month.

He hopes his pitching can make the difference down the stretch as Blue Mountain contends for NWAC playoff berth.

“It’s now or never and I think that’s how everyone is feeling about it,” he said. “If we want to have a chance, it’s time to start tightening up and going for it.”

Anderson gets it done for Centralia as No. 2 starter

Austin Anderson of Anchorage didn't have his A-game, but the A-man still found a way to get Centralia College a win.

The freshman pitcher scattered 10 hits and 5 walks over 7 innings in an 11-2 win over Gray's Harbor in NWAC action in Washington.

Anderson, of East High fame, improved to 2-3 in seven appearances. He lowered his ERA to 4.71 in 34.1 innings.

Earlier this year the left-hander threw a 1-hit shutout to beat second-place Lane, 1-0.

Anderson is the No. 2 starter on the Centralia staff. He leads the team in innings and ranks second in wins, ERA and strikeouts.
