BUCCS STRUGGLE HITTING...
The Covington Buccaneers struggled hitting the baseball against the talented Minster pitcheing and the result was a 3-0 defeat.
Nathan Blei had one of the two Buccaneer hits on Wednesday.

APRIL 13, 2016 -MINSTER
Prior to Wednesday’s game at Minster, if you were to tell Covington coach Mitch Hirsch that his team would hold the Wildcats scoreless in six of seven innings and allow just to four hits, he would have been pretty confident his team would come home winners.

Unfortunately, the Buccaneers could only connect for two hits of their own and left four runners on base in a 3-0 defeat.

"Other than the Tri-Village game, our pitching has been carrying us," said Hirsch. "What's been hurting us is our hitting and defense."

And playing Minster, hitting can be a challenge.

"Minster is good because they have good pitching and always play defense," Hirsch said. "They don't hurt themselves with mistakes."

The only runs scored in the contest were the three runs plated by the Wildcats in the bottom of the third.

Other than that, it was an even game.

"We have to take this for what it is," Hirsch said. "We played right with one of the better teams around. They've only lost one game and we were right with them. If we could have gotten one or two hits with runners in scoring position, the outcome may have been different."

Junior hurlers Christian Nelson and Kenny Atkinson did their part keeping Covington in the games.

"Christian and Kenny did a nice job of keep the ball down and throwing strikes," praised Hirsch. "Like I said, more often than not our pitching has been fine."

The loss, which is the third straight for the Buccs, drops Covington's record to 2-5 on the season.

The Buccs look to rebound tomorrow at Miami East.
