Mungle fans 13 as Stars muzzle Bulldogs
Monday, May 1, 2023
WBIW - NEW ALBANY – Cade Mungle authored a complete-game masterpiece as Bedford North Lawrence silenced New Albany 3-0 during high school baseball action on Monday evening.
“Cade pitched really well,” BNL coach Jeff Callahan said. “When you strike out 13, you don’t have to make a lot of plays.
Mungle scattered three hits and struck out a career-high 13 as the Stars (12-5) posted an impressive road victory. Mungle allowed only two runners to reach scoring position.
BNL scored twice in the third inning. Walker Ward led off with a single to right, Nate Pemberton dropped a sacrifice bunt, and Cal Gates launched a RBI double to left. With two out, Kline Woodward rifled a single to right to chase Gates home.
In the fifth, the Stars added a huge insurance run when Pemberton bombed a solo home run (the first of his career) to right.
“It was a nice surprise,” Callahan said. “When it left the bat, it was no doubt. It was a towering shot.”
Gates and Woodward had two hits each for the Stars. Landon Tiesing had a double for the Bulldogs (6-10).
BNL (continuing a seven-game road trip) will visit Bloomington North on Tuesday.
