Although Glen Rose gave up two runs against Bismarck, all were unearned and the Beaversâ€™ pitching roster essentially threw a combined no-hitter in their 12-2 win Tuesday.
Glen Rose head coach Chase Meyers said, â€śI didnâ€™t seem like we were pitching that well, because we had a couple of errors and they had runners on.
â€śBut our guys stopped the bleeding, and it couldâ€™ve been a lot worse.â€ť
Earning the win for Glen Rose was freshman Clay Holicer, who gave up two unearned runs in 2 2/3 innings. He walked three batters and struck out two, while hitting two with pitches.
HASKELL â€” The Miners jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.
Bauxite beat Harmony Grove 6-0 Tuesday, scoring all of its runs in the first three innings thanks to good hitting, smart base running and well-executed defense.
Bauxite head coach Michael Mattox said, â€śWe were much more solid on defense. We acted like we knew what we were doing, and we were in position.â€ť
On the other end, Harmony Grove head coach Brandon Kelly said, â€śWe werenâ€™t mentally tough today. It showed when we got ready in warmups; we were clowning around and werenâ€™t focused at the task at hand.
