Congratulations to BCU’s new baseball Coach Jason Beverlin for securing the first win of his head coaching career on Friday night . The Wildcats scored 7 runs in the top of the 7th inning and held on for an 8-6 victory over Florida Gulf Coast University in Ft Myers.
Sophomore Scott Gardner received the opening day nod on the mound. The 6′ 2″ right hander struck out 6 of the 19 batters he faced and yielded 4 hits and 2 earned runs in 4 innings of work. Corner outfielders David Lee and Josh Johnson led the Wildcats’ offensive charge. Both Lee and Johnson went 2-for-5 with 2 RBIs apiece.
The teams play the second of their three game set tomorrow at 2:00 P.M. You can follow the action live at the link below.
