The Brescia baseball team traveled to Pulaski, TN to take on the Redhawks of Martin Methodist College on Tuesday afternoon. In game 1 Martin Methodist jumped out to a first inning lead on an RBI single by Erik Bonifacio. That would be all Redhawk Starting Pitcher Cody Vernon would need as Martin Methodist went on to win 2-0. Bearcat Starting Pitcher Zach Sciaccotta (JR, Elmwood Park, IL) worked five solid innings allowing just one earned run on six hits and three walks, but the Bearcats offense was never able to get going.
In game 2 Martin Methodist again jumped out to an early lead with a three run first. The Redhawks would add three more runs in the fourth and 4 in the sixth as they cruised to a 10-1 win. The Bearcats plated their loan run in the top of the sixth when Pinch Hitter Blake Smith (JR, Belleville, MI)'s sacrifice fly score Logan Rascoe (JR, Sturgis, KY), who had led off the inning with a pinch hit single.
The Bearcats fall to 7-5 on the year and return home on Friday.
