The Cincinnati Bearcats baseball team had a heck of weekend against the St. Louis Billikens.

The Bearcats won on Friday and Saturday before taking a serious beating on Sunday.

Nevertheless, the pair of wins improve Cincinnati’s season mark to 10-10. All 20 of Cincinnati’s games thus far was been non-conference affairs.

On Friday, Cincinnati took a 4-0 lead in the first inning and hung on for an 8-4 victory over St. Louis. Southpaw pitcher Dean McCarthy had a superb start for the Bearcats. He pitched 7 innings, surrendering just 2 runs in the winning effort. This was McCarthy’s first win of the season.

On Saturday, the Bearcats belted 4 homeruns in an 8-5 win. Griffin Merritt led the way for Cincinnati, going 4 for 4 and blasting two homers in the victory.

The less said about Sunday’s contest, the better. St. Louis pummeled Cincinnati on their way out of town, pounding out 17 hits in a 21-6 win.

Cincinnati returns to action on Tuesday, hosting nationally-ranked Louisville at 6 PM to close out non-conference play. Head on over to the UC Baseball Stadium to watch the game or tune in on ESPN+.
