NEW KNOXVILLE — It took an extra inning but the New Bremen Cardinals were able to outlast the New Knoxville Rangers in the opening MAC game for each team 3-2 in eight innings Tuesday in New Knoxville.
“We kept battling and battling,” Cardinals head coach Josh Bowersock said. “We hit a couple balls early right on the screws but they were hit right at their guys, but in the later innings were kept after them and I think they did a very good job of that.”
ST. MARYS — Kenton’s big southpaw Noah Furbush took a shutout into the seventh inning and struck out 10 St. Marys batters over his six-plus innings of work in Kenton’s 5-2 win on Monday night at K.C. Geiger Park.
Furbush gave way to Logan Nichols, who closed out the game after St. Marys finally pushed two runs across, but not before he had stymied the Roughriders’ bats for most of the game.
