UPG’s Chris Common has three-home run game to tie program record

Bill Beckner

Chris Common has turned his senior season into a greatest hits album.

The left fielder from Penn-Trafford broke the school’s career hits record last week and on Wednesday the Bobcats’ career home run leader tied a single-game mark with three home runs in a 15-4 victory over neighboring Saint Vincent in Greensburg.

The senior drove in six runs.

UPG (14-19) won its home regular season finale by scattering a season-high-tying 20 hits against the Bearcats (19-17).

Common tied Tim Grum, who homered three times against Waynesburg in 2000. Common leads UPG with seven homers and has 29 for his career.

He went deep in the third with a solo shot, added a three-run blast in the fifth, and added another solo homer in the sixth.

Dylan DeRoss, Tyler Holland and Evan Johnston all had three hits in the win. UPG will travel to play Penn State Altoona at 1 p.m. Saturday in the first round of the AMCC playoffs

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.
