BC baseball keeps pace atop EPC

Liberty might be the one team everyone is chasing in the East Penn Conference, but Bethlehem Catholic has made its mark this season too.

The Hawks (6-2) are winners of six of their last seven games and are staying on Liberty’s heels of the EPC East division.

“We are off to a good start,” said head coach Matt Corsi. “We are very happy with the start to the season. Our defense and pitching has exceeded our expectations.”

The Hawks given up six runs in their six wins this season, including three shutouts. They did have their defensive numbers suffer following last week’s 12-1 loss to Emmaus, which is the only game this year that an opponent has scored more than four runs in a game.

Corsi saw his team put together a 10-0 win over Dieruff last week, but wants to see more progress from the team on the offensive side.

“The biggest surprise has been our defense and our lack of hitting,” he said. “We feel confident that our offense will come around soon.”

Becahi looks to keep their hot start to the season going this week against Central Catholic, Pleasant Valley and St. Joe’s Prep.

Liberty (6-3) finally has a busy week, as the Hurricanes have Emmaus, Pocono Mountain East and Williamsport on deck after only playing Easton last week.

The ‘Canes won 2-0 but had their games against Freedom and Nazareth postponed due to weather.
