The JV Bruins defeated Wes-Del under the lights 15-8 Thursday night. Branstan Wine notched the win for the Bruins in relief of Nick Otwinowski who threw three and a third innings allowing five runs of which two were earned.
“Both guys did a good job for us tonight. Nick hasn’t thrown much this year so it took him a bit to settle in. After he got a feel for his curveball he started to throw a lot better. Branstan is so dependable for us and we count on him to come in and throw strikes. He did a pretty decent job of that tonight so we’ll take it” Coach Hissong commented after the game.
Offensively, the Bruins were paced by Rydge Dunica who went 3-3 with two doubles and four RBI. Branstan Wine and Kyle Price each added two extra base hits for the Bruins. “Offense wasn’t an issue tonight. We took what they gave us and did a really good job of staying on and through the ball most of the evening. Colton had a really nice bunt for us to keep the rally going in the fifth. Rydge, Branstan and Kyle are relentless through the middle of the order. They put on a show tonight,” Coach Hissong concluded after the game.
The JV Bruins are now 5-11 and host Madison-Grant at 5:00pm on Friday.
