The Miners traveled Thursday to Magnet Cove, where they beat the Panthers 9-8.
Bauxite head coach Michael Mattox said, âWe fought hard tonight. That game was especially hard at the end.â
Sophomore Chris Revas started on the mound for the Miners, pitching 6 1/3 innings and striking out eight batters. In the fifth inning, a line drive hit him in the ear, splitting it open and causing the game to be stopped while coaches tended to him.
However, Revas asked to stay in the game. Mattox, laughing, said, âI think he was more effective after he got hit.â

The Lady Beavers held a 9-0 lead Tuesday going into the fifth inning against Bismarck, but allowed the Lady Lions to rally back and win 12-9.
Senior Tiffany Houpt pitched all seven innings for Glen Rose, earning the loss.
"Tiffany had some control issues," Glen Rose head coach Kyle Lem said.
