BASEBALL: Minster pulls out MAC win over St. Henry in 11 innings on Friday

May 4, 2012

ST. HENRY — Minster’s foray into Friday night extra innings  produced a happier ending this time thanks to a pair of home runs and a relief appearance from Austin Knapke that had the length of a start.

A week after losing in 15 innings in a Midwest Athletic Conference contest at Coldwater, Minster emerged with a win from a double-digit inning affair against another Mercer County MAC foe.

On a day Minster (19-5, 6-2 MAC) otherwise struggled to hit the ball, it was a pair of home runs that got the job done.

BASEBALL: Huber's homers lead Riders to win on Thursday night

“As a hitter, I was definitely excited,” he said.

Huber said the wind helped him on the hill, too.

The Rider senior hit two home runs — including a seventh-inning grand slam — and pitched six strong innings in St. Marys’ 8-2 win over Marion Local on Thursday.

BASEBALL: Minster picks up fifth MAC win over New Knoxville, stays in MAC race

May 3, 2012

MINSTER — Minster’s early offensive explosion accomplished a few things.

Taking a 9-0 lead through three innings allowed the Wildcats to coast to a 10-0 win over New Knoxville on Wednesday night in the resumption of a rain postponement from the night before.

The big lead also let Minster head coach Mike Wiss get his pitching staff lined up for next week’s tournament, a glaring need with rainouts and a scarcity of games left to let his deep and talented pitching staff get its work in.
