BASEBALL SWEEPS BRESCIA ON THE ROAD

The Patriots are taking advantage of dry and warm weather, playing their 4th and 5th game in the last three days today, sweeping Brescia University (11-1 and 4-3) in Owensboro, KY. The Pats got two strong outings from freshmen on the mound in route to the sweep.

SC 11 - BU 1
The Patriot bats erupted for 11 runs on 13 hits, but the strong performance by freshman Conner Lindsay (Nicholasville, KY) was the story in game one. Lindsay tossed 7 innings and scattered 3 hits, the first coming in the bottom of the 5th inning. He struck out 1, walked 1 and allowed a run in the 5th.

Josh Wenning (Palmyra, IN) led the way for the Bat Pats, going 3-4 with a double, RBI and 2 runs. Tyler Devine (Harrodsburg, KY) went 2-4 with a double and 2 runs and Dominique Guevara (Oxnard, CA) added a 2-5 game with a double and 2 RBI's.

SC 4 - BU 3
In the nightcap, SC turned it over to another freshman, Nathan Getzin (Louisville, KY), for his first college start. He hurled 6 innings, allowing 2 unearned runs on 7 hits. Tyler Jones (Huntington Beach, CA) tossed the 7th, allowing a run on 1 hit to pick up the save.

Down 2-0, the Patriots plated a run in the 4th on a walk by Santiago Arce (Chula Vista, CA) and a RBI double by Carlos Cespedes (Santo Domingo, DR). It stayed that way until the top of the 7th, when the Bat Pats scored 3 runs on 0 hits, 4 walks, a wild pitch and an error with Santiago Arce getting the only RBI in the inning.

Francisco Gonzalez (San Diego, CA) went 1-2 with a double and Dominique Guevara and Drew Kissel (Jeffersonville, IN) were the only others with base knocks. The Patriots did draw 7 base on balls in the game.

St. Catharine is back in action on Wednesday at home, hosting UC-Clermont in a single 9 inning affair at 3:00.
