UPJ sweeps IUP in doubleheader

JOHNSTOWN — Derek Younker and John Fees each tossed complete games to lead Pitt-Johnstown to 2-0 and 5-1 PSAC Western Division doubleheader wins over the Indiana University of Pennsylvania on Friday afternoon at Point Stadium.

UPJ improved to 13-19, 8-8 in conference-play.

Ernesto Rizzitano’s single brought Matt McMillen home from third.

Then, Jake Stern walked with one out to force Brett Marabito home.

Younker threw a complete-game shutout to improve to 5-3, scattering six hits without a walk.

In Game 2, the Mountain Cats broke open a one-run game with three runs in the bottom of the sixth to complete the sweep.

Marabito tripled and singled, and Stern added a pair of hits for UPJ.

IUP fell to 12-17 overall, 6-10 in the PSAC West.
