New Bloomfield rides Bedsworth's arm to a bounce back road victory over South Callaway

May 9th, 2011 in News

Sophomore pitcher Greg Bedsworth pitched five innings and gave up one earned run in the New Bloomfield Wildcats' 8-2 win over the South Callaway Bulldogs on Friday night in Mokane. The right-hander gave up just two hits and struck out four batters in upping his record to 5-1 on the season.

"He's been the healthiest of our pitchers this year and is our work horse," New Bloomfield head coach Brandon Talbot said. "Coming down the stretch, he's been getting stronger and that's saying something for a sophomore."

New Bloomfield (10-4) led 3-1 in the fifth inning when senior first baseman Zach Rehagen sent a pitch from South Callaway junior Hunter Leeper over the center field fence for a three-run home run. Rehagen finished the game 1-for-3 with four RBI. Junior center fielder Brendon Bailey added another RBI with a sixth inning single and senior left fielder Aaron Bedsworth was 3-for-4 with two runs scored. Bedsworth upped his season average to a team-leading .441.
