Sophomore Michael Uhl looked impressive in his first start on the mound in a 4-3 victory over St. James last Thursday afternoon. Uhl pitched seven full innings for the complete game win, giv- ing up three unearned runs on only four hits. He did give up four walks but struck out seven. "I'm very pleased by what Uhl gave us," Coach Darren Rapert said. "I feel pretty con- fident about our pitching. We've got some young guys coming up that are going to play a big part in our suc- cess." In the St. James victory, outfielder Michael Piersall scored the game's first run in the third inning. The team added two more in the fourth inning when Dustin Bosson and Brady Tierney crossed the plate behind Corey Herrell's second single of the day. St. James battled back to tie with three runs of their own in the fifth, behind back to back singles, a fielding error and a walk; but Cuba managed the game winner in the sixth when Tierney reached on an error, moved to second on a passed ball and eventually scored. Herrell went two for four on the day with a RBI, Piersall scored a run and had two RBI, and Pyatt had a hit and an RBI. Bosson scored a run and Tierney two runs. Robbie Massie also had a hit and drew a walk. The Wildcats lost at home against New Haven on March 26 5-2 due to fielding mis- takes but still played a com- petitive game.
