OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Playing under the lights for the first time in Johnson County Community College baseball history, the Cavaliers got dominate pitching efforts from Aaron Schnurbusch and Matt Blackham in back-to-back games, helping the Cavaliers to a pair of victories under the lights Friday night at JCCC. 

Schnurbusch’s exceptional effort lifted Johnson County to a 6-0 win in the first game of doubleheader. He allowed only one hit while striking out 11 Allen Community College batters. 

Schnurbusch also drove in three runs on two hits. He doubled in the fifth inning, and singled in the sixth. 

The game was never in doubt after the fourth inning, as JCCC scored two runs on a fielder’s choice and a steal of home by Joe Young. Johnson County also scored two runs in both the fifth and sixth innings. Overall, the Cavaliers collected eight hits in the game, including two extra base hits. 

In the nightcap, Blackham tossed a no-hitter in the Cavaliers 5-0 win over the Red Devils. No Allen batter was able to locate Blackham’s pitches during the game. He struck out 16 batters with no hits and a walk. Blackham tossed six innings of no-hit ball in his previous outing, bringing his no-hit streak to 13 straight innings. 

The Cavaliers never trailed after scoring two runs in the fifth on a passed ball and an RBI groundout by Zach Isham. JCCC increased its lead with three runs in the sixth.
