If there was an award for stick-to-itiveness Jaren Childs of Anchorage would win.
The Corban University senior right-handed pitcher has turned around his college career after a rocky start as an underclassman, blossoming into a reliable reliever.
Last season he earned his first save and last week he got his first win. Childs worked three scoreless innings in a 6-1 win over Bushnell in Springfield, Oregon.
The game was tied 1-1 through eight when Corban scored five runs in the top of the ninth. In the bottom half Childs worked around a leadoff walk to get the final three outs on flyouts.
He is now 1-4 in 24 appearances for the NAIA school.
Here is an indication of Childs’ growth – he gave up four homers in six innings as a freshman; since then he’s allowed only two in 38.1 innings while slicing his career ERA in half.
