HUDSON — The Clinton Community College baseball team had five hits over two games against Columbia-Greene Community College Thursday.
But the Cougars got all five of those hits in the first game.
Columbia-Greene picked up victories of 3-0 and 4-0 over Clinton, including a no-hitter tossed by Mike Jacobsen in the second game.
"(Joe) Kirkpatrick hit a ball pretty deep, but the right fielder made a nice running catch in the fifth inning," Cougars coach Tom Neale said. "(Eric) Rock also lined out to center. They played very good defense all day long, and their pitchers did a very good job."
Jacobsen finished with seven strikeouts and a pair of walks to capture the second game.
Mike Dodig and Kevin Gorman each belted a double for Columbia-Greene.
Kirkpatrick suffered the loss on the mound for Clinton (7-15).
In game one, the Cougars outhit Columbia-Greene 5-4 in the game but couldn't get a run across.
Nick Lamica led the way for Clinton with two hits while Matthew Williams cracked a double.
Jon Halligan grabbed the victory while Alex LaFountain suffered the loss, with both pitchers going the distance.
"The pitchers were outstanding," Neale said. "Their pitcher threw strikes and really got ahead of our hitters. LaFountain had a little trouble early, but he settled down and really threw well. Unfortunately, we couldn't help him out with the bats.
"Overall these were two well-played baseball games."
The Cougars host Schenectady at 1 p.m. Saturday.
