For the first time in two months, the York College baseball team is above the .500 mark.
The Spartans rolled to a non-league Senior Day doubleheader sweep over visiting Immaculata College on Sunday afternoon, 9-0 and 10-1.
That moved York's overall record to 20-19, while Immaculata fell to 16-21. It's the first time York has been over .500 since Feb. 28, when the Spartans were 3-2. The Spartans fell to a season-worst 5-11 on March 20, but they've gone 15-8 since that point.
In the first game, freshman right-hander Dan Gurganus pitched a complete-game two-hit shutout to improve to 5-2 on the season. He struck out nine and walked one in seven innings.
Another freshman, Dallastown High School graduate Derek Pitzer, led York's offense in the opener, banging three hits, including a double, to go with three RBIs and a run scored. Junior Justin Cohen also had three hits in the first game for York, including a double, with an RBI and a run scored. Yet another York freshman, Adam Bartholomew, added two hits, including a double, to go with two RBIs and a run scored.
In the second game, senior K.C. Beshore (2-2) got the win, allowing zero earned runs in 42/3 innings. Freshman David McGee and senior Brandon Ullom combined for 21/3 shutout innings. The appearance for Ullom broke the Spartan school record for appearances. He has now pitched in 64 games for his career.
Cohen (three hits, three runs scored, two RBIs), junior Dustin Worthman (three hits, one RBI), junior Nic Long (two hits, two RBIs, one run scored) and Pitzer (two hits, one RBI, one run scored) led the Spartans in the second game.
