Mercer bats destroy old diamond truth

-A A +A

Bearcat defense does not help in season opener

By John Herndon

Mercer County took the oldest truth in baseball and made it a lie Monday night.

You know the old saying, “Good pitching beats good hitting.”

It did not look like that was the case for Anderson County as Mercer, ranked 19th in the state, pounded the Bearcats 16-10 in the season opener.
“Our pitchers didn’t throw that badly,” Barnes said. “But Mercer is such a good offensive team that you can’t give them outs.”

Mercer pounded 19 hits, eight going for extra bases.
