College Baseball: Bismarck State races out of the gate to 4-0 start

The Bismarck State College baseball team has opened the season on an absolute tear.

The Mystics have won their first four games of the season, scoring at least eight runs in each contest.

The team is down in Tucson, Arizona for about 10 days. This year they return seven of their nine position players, so they are not starting from scratch.

Head coach Corby McGlauflin said he really wanted to improve his pitching from last season.

“Our big area of concern was pitching,” McGlauflin said. “We didn’t pitch very well last year. That was our number one focus in the offseason. We’re really excited. We have more velocity than we have ever had before.”

“We scored a lot of runs last year, but we gave up too many runs,” catcher Alec Battest said. “I think our pitching staff is going to be more locked in and our defense making plays behind them.”

Tomorrow, Bismarck State plays a doubleheader. Then they will have five games left before returning home after their Friday game.
