MARCH 25 - HARRISON COUNTY 13, BBHS 4
Despite temperatures in the low 40s that kept me glued to my computer screen “watching” the game on Game Changer rather than venturing forth to the ballyard, Harrison County pretty much duplicated the effort laid upon our Mustangs a week ago in Cynthiana. this time prevailing 13-4. Much as in the game played on the hilltop, Brossart led early, blanking the Breds for the first two innings, before the flood gates opened and ten Breds crossed the plate in the top of the third. The big blow in the inning was a grand slam home run by Malachi Feeback who hit two out of the friendly confines, and netted 7 RBIs on the afternoon. Brossart’s Evan Moore countered with his third home run of the season – a two run shot in the bottom of the third inning. Our guys scored four runs over three different innings, as Andrew Beck went 2 of 3 with a double, Moore was 1 of 2 with the home run, 2 runs scored and a pair of ribbies. Collin Combs went 2 for 3 with a double and 2 RBIs, and fan favorite Adam Bezold going 1 for 2 with a double. Andrew Beck was our starting pitcher and took the loss. With the win the Breds remain perfect at 6-0 while our Mustangs fall to 2-3.
