The Bauxite Miners baseball team opened the 2012 season this past week and started the year off right with a 3-2 victory over the Glen Rose Beavers on Monday at Bauxite.
Led by the pitching of senior Ryan Weng, the Miners played stellar defense behind him to get the victory.
â€śMonday, our defense and pitching showed out,â€ť Bauxite Coach Michael Mattox said. â€śItâ€™s the best defensive game Iâ€™ve coached at Bauxite. We made every play. We had a 74-pitch complete game from our pitcher. We couldnâ€™t ask for a better game.â€ť
