Pitching was the key for the Hastings College baseball team in earning its first conference victory Saturday.
The Broncos beat Concordia 1-0 in the first game of a doubleheader that was moved from Seward to Hastings due to wet field conditions. The victory was the only win for HC in four games played on Friday and Saturday.
The Broncos fell to Doane, which is 18-11 overall and 3-1 in the conference, 4-1 and 5-2 in Crete on Friday. Hastings bounced back with a win over the Bulldogs to open Saturday's series, before falling to Concordia 3-2 in game No. 2 at Duncan Field.
In the Broncos' 1-0 win, HC's AJ Fruchtl threw a complete game, allowing just four hits, one walk and striking out seven in the shutout.
