The Pasco Hernando State College Bobcats strung together six straight elimination game wins in the NJCAA DII Southeast Disctrict Tournament.
In baseball, winning six straight is rare. However, first year head coach Lyndon Coleman says simplyifying each game was key.
“We just took it one pitch at a time…because if you’re looking at it…you have to win six baseball games…the likelihood of getting it done is very rare,” Coleman said.
After a couple of days off, the Bobcats begin preparations for Enid, Oklahoma, the site of the NJCAA DII College World Series.
Outfielder Brayden Lyman grew up in Pasco County. He knows how big a win would be not only for the school but also for the area itself.
“It would be huge to bring a World Series home to Pasco County, and put Pasco-Hernando State College on the map,” said Lyman.
What’s going to be key to winning?
According to catcher Nick Alessi, pitching, defense and timely hitting.
The NJCAA DII College World Series begins on the 24th.
