Hogue leads Huskies past Harvey

Brice Hogue did it all for Cardinal in a 7-0 win over visiting Harvey on Friday.

Hogue went 3-for-4 at the plate with a run scored and an RBI and he also pitched a one-hit complete game shutout.

“He pitched a heck of a game,” said Cardinal coach Seth Klepper. “His control was the best I’ve ever seen it. Today, he hit the ball well. He’s been doing that all season.”

Cardinal has played four games this season. Hogue has multiple hits in three of those contests.

“I am extremely comfortable being the leadoff hitter,” Hogue said. “I feel like I get the team on the right track and the momentum on our side.”

He is batting .643 with two doubles and he also has stolen seven bases.

“Once we get him on base, he’s running,” Klepper said.

Hogue retired the first 11 Harvey batters he faced until he issued a two-out walk in the fourth.

The only hit he allowed came with two outs in the seventh.

“It was quite an experience; not very many players can do that,” Hogue said of the one-hitter. “it’s very upsetting giving up the only hit with one out left in the game. I made sure to paint the corners all day and also made sure I was ahead in the count with a first-pitch strike.”

Jon Heredos and Brian Westover both finished 3-for-3 for the Huskies.

Heredos scored three runs and Westover had three RBI.

“We brought Heredos in to play first base and outfield and he’s a good lefty that just kind of slaps it out there and makes contact with the ball,” Klepper said. “Westover, we put him at first and he played a heck of a game. He put the ball in play and used his speed. He made some great plays on defense, which kept us in everything. I was very pleased to see what they brought to the table today.”

Jacob Gotham had a double for the Huskies, who improved to 3-1.
