February 24th is a day to mark on your calenders. Two former Lancers, both teammates and both 1st Team All-Marmonte League selections, will take the mound for their perspective teams. The game will be played at Moorpark College with the first pitch at 2:00. The Varsity team will once again be making the trip, but this time will remain neutral.
Congratulations to former Lancer Daniel Delaney. Daniel and the Valparaiso Crusaders traveled to San Diego to take on the San Diego State Aztecs. The series represents the first ever matchups between the two schools. Despite his team going 0-3, Daniel opened his season with a bang. The Valparaiso junior had three multi-hit games against the Aztecs. In game 1, Daniel went 2-4 with 2 singles. In Game 2, Daniel went 2-3 with 3 RBIs, 2 runs scored, a walk and a homerun. In game 3, Daniel went 2-4 with a double. On the weekend, Daniel’s final line would read 6-11 (.545). Not a bad start to the season.
Moorpark College freshman pitcher Wyatt Birg sports a 3-0 record. His 3 wins are good for a share in the lead for most wins in the Western State Conference. During his first three starts, Wyatt has 20 innings pitched, 4 walks to 15 strikeouts and a miniscule 1.80 ERA.
Helping out Wyatt offensively is sophomore Garrett Serino. Through his first 8 games, Garrett has 30 official at bats. He has 11 hits (2 doubles and 1 triple), 3 RBIs and a stolen base. His overall batting average stands at .367
Ventura College freshman pitcher Jackson Simonsgaard earned his first victory against West Hills Coalinga JC. Through three starts, Jackson has 20 innings pitched with a 2.25 ERA and a Western State Connference leading 25 strikeouts.

~ Matt Bywater ~
The Southern Illinois Miners announce that left-handed pitcher Matt Bywater has won the Brian Tollberg Award as the 2014 Frontier League Pitcher of the Year. He has also been named the starting pitcher on the 2014 Frontier League posteason all-star team.
The Thousand Oaks, California native becomes the third Miner to win Pitcher of the Year honors in their eight-year franchise history.
“I couldn’t be happier for Matt,” Miners manager Mike Pinto said. “He has worked extremely hard for this honor from the day he arrived here. His daily preparation for success and his consistent competitiveness on the mound have made him a standout in the league. I am confident great things are ahead for him.”
A southpaw with a unique, “vulcan” changeup pitch, Bywater has kept opposing hitters off balance all year. Entering play on August 31st, Bywater leads the Frontier League with 112 strikeouts, the third Miner ever with triple-digit strikeouts in a season (after Bird and Augustine).
He also has been a workhorse on the mound, leading the league with 128 1/3 innings pitched. Sporting an 8-4 record and a stellar 2.38 ERA in 20 starts in 2014, the left-hander has allowed just 85 hits on the season, holding opponents to a miniscule .187 batting average while tossing 14 “quality starts” (minimum six innings pitched, maximum three earned runs), the most on the Miners staff.
