Former Mt. Hood standout Dru Fitz pitches University of Jamestown to GPAC Baseball Championship
YANKTON, S.D.-- Dru Fitz (JR/Gresham, OR/Mt. Hood CC) pitched a four-hit shutout and the University of Jamestown scored three runs without the benefit of a hit, capturing the GPAC Baseball Championship Tuesday afternoon with a 3-0 win over Concordia (Neb.)
Jamestown (35-16) won the GPAC Championship in its first year as a member of the conference. The Jimmies will find out Thursday where they will be headed to begin the NAIA Opening Round of the national tournament.
Fitz (6-2) retired the final 17 batters he faced following a two-out single in the fourth by Teyt Johnson. The right hander struck out two and did not walk a batter, needing just 96 pitches to complete the game. The outing was his second straight complete game, and first nine-inning complete game of the season.
