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.
