WORTHINGTON – The Rochester Community and Technical College baseball team ended the regular season in style here Sunday afternoon with a sweep in a doubleheader against Minnesota West Technical and Community College.

The Yellowjackets opened with a 4-0 shutout and won the second game 7-6 in eight innings.

The sweep gives RCTC – the Minnesota College Athletic Conference South Division champions – a 27-14 regular-season mark. The Yellowjackets enter the postseason having won nine of their past 10 games.

They will play in the Region XIII tournament in St. Cloud Thursday-Saturday. The playing time and opponent for their tournament opener have yet to be determined.

On Sunday, Clement Febus and Luis Rodriguez combined to throw a two-hitter in RCTC’s 4-0 Game 1 win against Minnesota West. Febus started and allowed only two baserunners in five innings – one single and one walk – and struckout four batters. Rodriguez went the final two innings to earn the save, allowing a hit and a walk.

RCTC collected 10 basehits, scored three runs in the fifth inning and scored an insurance run in the seventh.

Designated hitter Logan O’Hara went 1-for-3 with two RBIs, while Teagun Ahrens went 3-for-4 with a double, and Augusto Mungarrieta went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run.

RCTC had to go to extra innings to win Game 2, with a Rees Campanale RBI single in the top of the eighth driving in the winning run.

Griffin Olson went 2-for-3 with a double and four runs scored, while Mungarrieta hit a two-run home run. Catcher Riley Forbes also had a three-hit game.

Olson pitched a perfect bottom of the eighth inning, striking out the striker to get the win.
