Game 1 versus Dayton resulted in a disappointing 15-0 loss. Dayton’s pitching dominated-  holding the Broncos to only 3 hits the entire game.  Kade Wagoner and Blake Johnston with a single each and Mikey Molina with a double.  The highlight of the Dayton game, however, was a good pitching outing for sophomore Cade Pascale with 5 K’s.
Game 2 versus Yerington was also a loss.  Bishop led 2-0 going in to the 5th inning, but Yerington’s bats got hot and they scored 5 in the 5th to get the 5-2 win. Impressive pitching performance by Justin Yates as he held yerington to 3 up 3 down in the first 2 innings.
Hitting:
Kubiak and Maloney both went 2-3, 2 singles each
Parra, 1-2
Yates 1-2, 1 RBI
