Brossart Junior Evan Moore suffered no ill-effects from my making him the cover boy on yesterday’s BMustangs feature story, hitting a home run in the first inning and upping his season RBIs total to 31, as the Mustangs invaded Park Hills and took on the Covington Catholic Colonels on Tuesday afternoon. Brossart drew William Burke, one of the three top CovCath starters, who gave up a run to our guys in each of the first two innings. Coach Ron Verst sent Evan Moore to the mound for his fourth start of the season. Moore allowed only a single earned run, but the Mustangs were victimized with three errors that contributed another four runs to their sum total. Following the CovCath third inning where the Colonels led 5-2, neither team was able to score another run on the afternoon. Moore, took the loss, going the distance allowing 11 hits while striking out 4. Burke went five complete allowing 2 Brossart runs wile giving up 4 hits, and the Colonels played errorless baseball. In addition to Evans’ round-tripper, Colin Combs doubled while Logan Meyer and Mitchell Combs both singled.
Newport Central Catholic is scheduled to come to Alexandria on Wednesday, weather permitting. The weatherman is painting a glum picture with lots of rain.
