HURRICANE, W.Va. -- Logan's baseball team entered its third game of the season at Hurricane, having not allowed a run in either of its first two.
Unfortunately for the Wildcats, it was Hurricane junior right-hander Austin Hensley that fired the blanks Thursday night in leading the Redskins to a 2-0 win at Lola Meeks Field.
Hensley (2-1) struck out seven and allowed just one walk, while scattering six hits in going the distance for the Redskins, who improved to 5-1.
Logan dropped to 2-1 with the loss.
"He's a bulldog," said Hurricane Coach Brian Sutphin of Hensley. "He's a tough kid and he definitely works hard.
"I thought he pitched in rhythm more tonight and he seemed to have command of all his pitches. Overall, I thought he was just aggressive and came right after them and just trusted his defense and they made good plays behind him."
For Hensley, the key was successfully staying ahead of the Wildcats' normally dangerous hitters.
"They can hit the ball and they came out ready, so my approach was to get ahead early, stay after them and let my defense make plays," Hensley said. "You hear about Logan and they always have a good team, so I came ready to play."
