The Brescia baseball team traveled to UC-Clermont on Thursday for a doubleheader.
In game 1, the Bearcats jumped on the board first when First Baseman Christian McHatton (JR/Henderson, KY) delivered a two run homerun to highlight a three run second. The Bearcats third run came across on an RBI single by Second Baseman Eduardo Bermudez-Rosso (SO/Vieques, Puerto Rico). Shortstop Nate Crocker (SR/Porterville, CA) would drive in another Bearcat run in the third to make the score 4-0. UC-Clermont would plate their only run of the game in the sixth before the Bearcats added another run in the seventh when Pinch Runner Josh Wetzel (FR/Metropolis, IL) scored on a wild pitch to make the score 5-1.
Bearcat Starter Andrew Shoulders (SR/Boonville, IN) worked six innings of six hit, one run baseball while striking out one in route to his eleventh win of the year. The win for the Bearcats was their 34th of the season setting a new school record.
