Barton Baseball's Hiser wins week two conference pitching award

Barton Baseball's Hiser wins week two conference pitching award

Mason Hiser of the Barton Community College baseball team has been awarded the KJCCC Division I Co-Pitcher of the Week honor for his performance in week two of the 2016-17 season.  

Hiser pitched a complete game last Saturday, scattering three hits and striking out six with no walks, in Barton's game two 8-1 victory at Rose State College.   Silencing the Indian bats after pounding out twelve hits in game one, Hiser's lone run given up came on a fifth inning sacrifice fly as the Augusta sophomore right-hander picked up his first win of 2017 improving to 1-1.

The Cougars returned home on Sunday from its second trip into Oklahoma to begin the season, compiling a 5-2 start to the schedule.  Barton recently added a mid-week trip to Bethany College, taking on the junior varsity squad today in a 4:00 p.m. nine inning contest.  The Cougars will then get to play their first game of the season on the home turf of Lawson-Biggs Field in a four game set versus Western Nebraska Community College.  The teams will play doubleheader each day, with Saturday's action beginning at 1:00 p.m. and Sunday's first pitch scheduled for 12:00 p.m.

Hiser shares the week two honor with sophomore southpaw Stuart Baruth of Johnson County Community College.  Baruth picked up a save and a win in his two relief outings last week pitching the final two innings in an 11-5 win over Ellsworth in not allowing a hit or a run and struck out five. Two days later in a 14-10 win over Ellsworth, Baruth pitched three scoreless innings, allowing just two singles with five strikeouts and was the winning pitcher.
