FT. WAYNE— The Braves ran into one of the best pitchers they will see all season against the South Side Archers and were blanked, 8-0 on Thursday night.
Will Coursen-Carr, an IU-bound senior hurler, set down fifteen Braves en route to a complete game shutout of Bellmont.
"Bellmont has hit us better than a lot of teams will this season," stated Matt Harmon, coach at South Side.
The Braves managed to get five hits off of the outstanding college prospect. Three different Braves managed hits against Coursen-Carr including two each from seniors Brooks Faurote and Brian Fullenkamp who each went two-for-three o the day. Matt Stidam was the only other Brave to get a hit.
Just as impressive as fifteen strikeouts for Coursen-Carr was the fact that he did not allow a single Bellmont batter a free pass on a walk. The senior also provided much of the offense for the Archers as he went three-for-four with three RBIs, a double, and a homerun.
Bellmont's Phillip Bauman took the loss for the Braves going four innings giving up five runs on eight hits. Landon Baker went the other two innings for coach Ben Fawbush and the Braves giving up three hits and three runs.
Bellmont faces Concordia on Monday in Fort Wayne with a 5p.m. start time.
