Dixon, Kalousdian Star in Pioneers’ Doubleheader Loss at Adirondack
Tuesday, August 28, 2012 | Categories:
TJ Dixon (Samford) and Chris Kalousdian (Manhattan) have been critical to the Elmira PIoneers' success this season, and the duo impressed even in the Pioneers' (12-11) doubleheader loss to the Adirondack Trail Blazers (9-14).
In the first game of the doubleheader, Dixon had an incredible game, going 4 for 4 with two runs scored. Two of his hits came on perfectly executed bunt singles. Dixon also impressed in the field, making a diving catch in center field and also making an incredible running grab.
Kalousdian, meanwhile, delivered two hits and two runs scored in the first game and wowed spectators with his arm. By the time the day was through, Kalousdian had gunned down three different Adirondack runners for outfield assists, one each at home, third base, and second base. The all-around play of Dixon and Kalousdian has never slowed down in 2014, and on Monday, they were at their best.
Also having nice games for the Pioneers were Taylor Skerpon (Penn State), who had an RBI double in the second game, and pitchers Austin Hill (Ithaca) and Zach Pidgeon (Ithaca). The two pitchers appeared in both games for the Pioneers and combined to toss 3.2 innings between the two contests.
Don't miss Dixon and Kalousdian showing off their talents as the Pioneers return home to Historic Dunn Field on Thursday, July 3rd to start their four-game USA Homestand.
