The JV Bruins fell to 4-11 Tuesday night with a 15-5 loss to Northfield. The Bruins issued 15 walks and committed 7 errors in the game. Dane Baker, Braydon Kunz, Colton McNeal and Cam Elam threw for the Bruins. “Tonight was tough defensively. Our kids struggled to find the zone and when we did their guys did an excellent job of hitting the ball hard and our kids struggled to field it tonight” Coach Hissong commented after the game.
Offensively the Bruins were led by Kyle Price and Rydge Dunica who combined for four hits and four RBI. “Their kid had good velocity and a nice curveball. We struggled to hit him. Kyle and Rydge did a nice job of putting the ball in play and capitalizing on their opportunities. Nic and Isaac had nice at bats tonight but didn’t get rewarded for them. Against good teams you don’t always get the results you’re looking for. We just have to keep having a good approach and trust the hits will come” coach Hissong concluded after the game.
The JV Bruins play in the tail end of Thursday’s double header at Bruin Field. They’ll take on Wes-Del a half hour after the conclusion of the varsity game against Madison-Grant. The varsity game begins at 5pm.
