Triulzi helps surging Eagles to sweep

Every successful ballclub needs a bulldog in the bullpen, somebody who's fearless and wants the ball with the game on the line.

Meet Jake Triulzi, a stocky lefthander from the St. Louis suburbs who is excelling as the closer for the Kirkwood Eagles this season.

Triulzi picked up another save Tuesday and kept his ERA at 0.00 as Kirkwood swept a doubleheader from Marshalltown, 7-4 and 10-6, on another chilly day at Kirkwood.

The Eagles, riding a seven-game winning streak, raised their record to 16-2.

Kirkwood sweeps Iowa Lakes again

The Kirkwood Community College baseball team is off to a good start this season with a 14-2 overall record and four straight wins in the ICCAC conference.

It will be interesting to see what happens once the Eagles finally get a chance to practice outside this year.

Cold weather and a soupy field have forced the Eagles to practice inside so far, but they're doing just fine in the games.

Kirkwood swept a doubleheader from Iowa Lakes for the second straight day Monday, this time 10-0 and 13-8, on a cold, blustery afternoon with the temperature in the high 30's.

Belk pitches no-hitter as Eagles sweep

Collin Belk tossed a no-hitter as the Kirkwood Eagles trimmed Iowa Lakes, 2-1, in eight innings in the first game of a doubleheader at the Kirkwood field Sunday.

The Eagles also won the second game, 8-7.

Belk (4-0) walked only two batters and was touched for an unearned run in the fourth inning when Iowa Lakes took a 1-0 lead. Kirkwood scored in the bottom of the fourth and it stayed 1-1 until the bottom of the eighth.

NCAA baseball champ finds new home at Kirkwood

Most of the baseball players at Kirkwood Community College can only dream about playing in the College World Series in Omaha and winning an NCAA title.

Greg Brodzinski has already done it.

Brodzinski was a freshman catcher at South Carolina in 2011 when the Gamecocks won the NCAA Division I title with a 5-2 victory over Florida before 26,721 fans at TD Ameritrade Park.

Brodzinski was in the bullpen when South Carolina got the final out. He raced onto the field and joined the dogpile.

"I'll never forget that," he said Friday. "It's like in the movies."

Brodzinski anticipated becoming one of Carolina's top catchers in 2012, but a fifth-year senior was granted a special sixth year of eligibility for 2012 and Brodzinski decided to transfer to Coastal Carolina ratherĀ than being a reserve with the Gamecocks again.
