  • Former Golden Tide athletes currently playing baseball at the collegiate level:
    Sam Gardner • Senior • OF • University of Pittsburgh-Bradford Panthers
    March 19: Senior right fielder Sam Gardner collected seven hits in four consecutive games during Pitt Bradford’s 4-3 spring break trip to the Gene Cusic Classic last week.
    His average soared from .250 to .357, tops among the Panther regulars.
    Gardner was hitless in the tourney opener, a 1-0 win over Muskingum (Ohio), but scored the only run on a two-out error in the eighth inning after being hit by a pitch.
    He socked a two-run double, singled and scored three runs when the Panthers drubbed Finlandia (Mich.) 17-2 in the first game of Wednesday’s twinbill and added a single in the 2-0 nightcap win.
    On Friday at Terry Park, Gardner keyed an 8-2 victory over nationally-ranked Johns Hopkins with a two-run single that put the Panthers ahead 3-2 in the bottom of the fourth inning and a run-scoring single in their four-run fifth.
    Johns Hopkins, No. 18 in last week’s Top 25 Poll, came back to end Pitt-Bradford’s seven-game win streak 7-2, but couldn’t cool off Gardner, who singled and doubled.
    Gettysburg pitchers did, though, in a 3-2, 12-4 sweep at the Red Sox Player Development Complex Saturday that sent Pitt-Bradford home with an 8-4 record.
    Gardner, who drew two walks in the second game, is 10-for-29 and tied for second on the team with nine RBIs. He’s also second in on-base average at .471.
    Ben McGary • Senior • P • Clarion University Golden Eagles
    March 11: Senior left-hander Ben McGary returns to the pitching staff after accounting for two of Clarion’s four wins last spring.
    His two-hit, complete-game, 2-1 victory at Slippery Rock in late March was the lone win in the Golden Eagles’ first 40 games, and he five-hit Lock Haven for a 4-2 win in a season-ending sweep that set their final record at 4-40.
    McGary was 2-8 with a 5.80 earned run average in a team-high 10 starts and led the Golden Eagles in complete games with six and innings pitched with 54.1.
    He struck out 28 and walked 24 while allowing 68 hits and 51 runs, 16 of which were unearned.
