Bengals's Andrew Sheridan pitched a complete game shutout to defeat the Bears 5 to 0, this afternoon at Bengals Stadium. LSUE got on the board first with one run, on a Bears miscue on a fly ball. Bengals added to their lead in the third, with three runs, in which, two of those came off a B. Hebert homer to left field. Bengals would homer again in the fourth, when C. Horton hit it off of the left field foul pole. After four the Bengals held a 5 to 0 lead and that would be margin of victory for this second game of the series. The Bears struggled at the plate and only had three hits compared to 7 for LSUE. One bright spot for the Bears was their bullpen.
