Big Blues Shut Out at Carson-Newman

Big Blues Shut Out at Carson-Newman

Jefferson City, TN- The Big Blues complete their Tennessee road trip with shut out loses to Carson-Newman today. Game 1 saw Bluefield State face another incredible pitching performance by the opponent's ace. This time, Alli Webster threw a no-hitter with 12 strikeouts to beat Bluefield State 8-0. Game 2 was much of the same as the Eagles' Lacie Rinus threw a 1 hitter with 10 strikeouts and won 11-0.

In game one the Big Blues did manage to get on base by a walk and two hit by pitches to break up the perfect game bid. But this was all the offense could do, as the team was unable to get a hit off Webster.

The Big Blues lone hit in game two came from freshman Casey Spencer who singled with 2 outs in the 5th inning. The Big Blues defense was much better in these two games, limiting the errors to just 4 in the double header.

BSC will now look to regroup at home on Sunday vs. Virginia Union. The weather is not looking promising as it is supposed to snow Saturday night. Check back on Twitter and Facebook for updates to the game if the weather takes a turn for the worse this weekend.
