Comets pile up hit after hit after hit, handle Trojans

BLAIRSBURG – BCLUW rocked 31 hits – yes, 31 – in a non-conference victory over Northeast Hamilton here yesterday evening.

The Comets (3-9) got plenty of small-ball base knocks, but they also found the gaps en route to a 24-10 thumping of the Trojans.

“We actually came out on fire and played good, solid baseball, but they had outstanding hits.” NEH head coach Chace Pruismann said. “But I felt like there was a lot of good that came out of this.”

BCLUW scored multiple runs in six of its seven at bats, highlighted by a six-run third frame. The Comets lit up the scoreboard for five runs in the sixth and seventh.

NEH (3-4) was limited to five hits, but still found ways to cross the plate enough to stay in contention until late.

Logan Seiser ripped a single and double and drove in two runs in the loss. Austin Smith also found a crease in the outfield for a double; Tyler Smith and Truman Chamness added singles.

Gabe Rapp plated two runs and Tyler Smith finished with one RBI.

NEH will head just down the road to Jewell tonight to take on South Hamilton in another non-conference game. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
