COLEMAN—In a game closer than the scoreboard read, the Coleman Baseball Cougars blanked St. Thomas Aquinas Academy 10-0 on Tuesday.

The Cougars extended their undefeated record with a fast start from starting pitcher Karson Casper who struck out 4 batters, allowed no hits and zero walks in two innings resulting in an early 6-0 lead that the Titans were unable to overcome.

Casper produced offensively as well, adding multiple hits and scoring multiple runs on the day. Cayden Bintz and Will Bieber also came through offensively, with two runs batted in each

Coleman coach Kent Casper praised STAA/Lena, saying “the score does not show how good they are. They are not the STAA of old. They are going to be right up there pushing everybody. They really are.”

STAA/Lena coach Jack Farley mentioned after the game that they “got baserunners every now and then but we have to make contact in those situations and try and hit them home. We got a little sloppy on defense at times too and we can’t have that.”

Coleman hopes to further extend their undefeated record when they travel to play Niagara today,
