Hale hitting, but Cards still losing

BRODHEAD - Clayton Hale doesn't want to take anything for granted after breaking his wrist last year and missing a big chunk of Brodhead's season. Now a junior for the Cardinals, Hale has his hitting stroke back and went 2-for-3 in a Rock Valley loss to Evansville, 9-4, Tuesday. Even though Hale returned to play a couple of games at the end of last year, he hated having to sit on the bench and worked in the offseason on improving his swing.
