Cyclones bounce back against Monarchs

“Getting those runs early and having Braydon on the mound throwing the ball really well was enough.” -Heath Stein, HCHS Head Baseball Coach

After a tough loss against the Lewis Central Titans on Wednesday night, the HCHS varsity baseball team bounced back against the Denison-Schleswig Monarchs the following night and won, 5-1.

“This is obviously huge because last night didn’t end the way we wanted it to,” said junior catcher Austin Schumacher. “Tonight felt great.”

Sophomore Braydon Ernst got the ball for the Cyclones as he pitched six dominant innings, striking out six and only giving up one run on three hits.

“His changeup is nasty, he’s painting the corners,” Schumacher said. “Hitters just couldn’t do anything. He’s got good stuff.”

The Cyclones bats come alive early as they dropped a five spot in the bottom of the first inning, which was all they needed to win the game.

“We were ready to play coming out and they gave us a couple of free bases and we put a couple nice swings on the ball and as the innings went on, that kind of went away,” said HCHS Head Baseball Coach Heath Stein. “Getting those runs early and having Braydon on the mound throwing the ball really well was enough.”

Their next game will take place Monday at home at 7:30 p.m. as the Kuemper Catholic Knights, 5-2, will come to town.
