Queensborough's Victor Gonzalez hurled a complete-game three-hitter with 14
Left-handed pitcher Victor Gonzalez pitched a complete-game three-hitter with 14 strikeouts, while teammates Sean Smith and Joel Feliz notched three RBI apiece Wednesday afternoon at KeySpan Park, as the second-seeded Queensborough Community College Tigers captured their record 12th City University of New York Athletic Conference Community College Baseball Championship with a 7-3 victory over top-seeded Bronx.
Gonzalez, who allowed seven walks and hit two batters while throwing 88 of his 158 pitches for strikes, really beared down when he got into trouble; Bronx (12-17) hit just 1-for-10 with runners on base in the contest.
