Bill Beckner

A common name keeps appearing in the Pitt-Greensburg baseball record book.

Senior left fielder Chris Common, a Penn-Trafford graduate, became the Bobcats’ all-time leader in hits during a doubleheader against D’Youville Saturday at Bobcat Park in Greensburg.

On senior day, Common singled three times to move past Greg Lynn for the top spot in program history. Lynn, who played from 2013-16, had 167 hits. Common how has 168.

Common, who also is UPG’s career leader in home runs, helped his teammates sweep the doubleheader to extend the their winning streak to four.

UPG had 34 hits and 31 runs in the two-game surge against D’Youville. The Bobcats won by scores of 12-3 and 19-3.

Sophomore Dylan DeRoss and senior Tyler Holland each had six hits over the two games, and sophomore Evan Johnston (Belle Vernon) homered for the Bobcats (13-17, 10-6 AMCC).

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
