Behind a strong 6.2 innings from starting pitcher Jackson Miles, the visiting Bearcats defeated Covenant 12-5 in baseball action on a bitterly cold Friday afternoon.
Miles held Covenant's offense in check all afternoon. The right-hander allowed just one run while scattering seven hits and striking out eight as he earned his first victory of the season.
Brescia scored single runs in both the first and second innings. Hank Stewart doubled home a run in the first, while Tim Adams added an RBI single in the second to give the Bearcats a 2-0 lead. Brescia tacked on four runs in the third inning, with three runs coming off a Christian McHatton bases-clearing double, as the Bearcats took a 6-0 lead.
