The Brescia baseball team hosted the Mid-Continent Cougars on Wednesday at Schadler Field for a mid-week double header.
In game 1 it was all Mid-Continent early. They pushed two across in the first, three in the third, two in the fourth and two in the fifth to make the score 9-0. The Bearcats pushed five runs across in the bottom of the sixth, as Second Baseman Eduardo Bermudez-Rosso (SO/Vieques, Puerto Rico), Pinch Hitter Alex Hegge (SR/Bellevue, KY), Center Fielder Brady Reese (SO/Villa Hills, KY) and Shortstop Nate Crocker (SR/Porterville, CA) all drove in runs. It was however too little too late as the Bearcats fell 9-5.

In game 2 the Cougars again jumped out to an early lead with two runs in the first and another run in the second. The Bearcats would get on the board in the third on an RBI single by Designated Hitter Christian McHatton (JR/Henderson, KY). The Bearcats would add two more in the fourth. Center Fielder Brady Reese plated the first run on an RBI double and later scored thanks to a pair of Mid-Continent erros. Mid-Continent would get two runs back in the sixth thanks to the help of a pair of Bearcats errors making the score 5-3. The Bearcats would plate one more in the bottom of the sixth thanks to a Mid-Continent error making the score 5-4, but that's as close as it would get.
The Bearcats fall to 29-17 on the year and are 11-5 in conference. The Bearcats will host Alice Lloyd College on Saturday at 3:00 and Sunday at 12:00 in the last four conference games of the year. The Bearcats are currently in second place in the KIAC sitting a game behind Point Park University in the loss column.
