New Bloomfield baseball team halted by Harrisburg

— The Wildcats had just five hits in falling to the Bulldogs 5-2 on the road on Saturday.

Junior Brady Wiler took the loss with a five-inning outing. He allowed five earned runs on seven hits, walked one and hit a batter while striking out three.

Harrisburg tallied three in the bottom of the first inning then tacked on another run in the second. New Bloomfield sophomore second baseman Clay Jensen put the Wildcats on the board in the top of the third on an RBI single to drive in sophomore catcher Derek Shikles.

New Bloomfield drew to within 4-2 on an RBI single by senior left fielder Ethan Massman, but the Wildcats would never draw any closer. The Bulldogs scored their final run in the bottom of the fourth and finished with nine hits.

Jensen and Massman each went 1-for-3 with a stolen base.

New Bloomfield completed a previously postponed game with the Fatima Comets earlier that day, bowing 10-4 in eight innings.

Jensen was the losing pitcher, allowing four runs, two earned on three hits and three walks. All three hits allowed by Jensen came in the seventh inning as he also added three strikeouts.

Shikles led the Wildcats with a 3-for-4 showing while Massman was 2-for-3. Senior third baseman Clark Philbert was 1-for-4 with a double and two RBIs as New Bloomfield out-hit the Comets 10-6.

The Wildcats host St. Elizabeth in a league game at 5 p.m. today.
