Hensley shrugged off his team's early misfires on offense.
"You just have to stay humble about that,'' he said, "because everybody makes mistakes and it's still early. Hopefully we can get hot and get on a streak with our hitting.''
Tate Brock, 2 for 3 with a pair of doubles, was the only Redskins player with more than one hit. Josh Rein went 2 for 3 for the Wildcats (2-1).
Logan coach Roger Gertz tried to look at all sides of the issue. His team played decent defense, but did give away two runs with an error and balk. On offense, the Wildcats were 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position, but three potential extra-base hits down the line turned into foul balls, missing by 2 feet or less.
"It's learning baseball. It's just inexperience,'' Gertz said. "We had opportunities and we couldn't get a big hit when we needed it. We didn't execute the little things.
"But in fairness to our kids - and to anybody - you've been hitting in a building and now you get out here and now you've got to pick up whether it's a fastball or curve or change, and the depth perception's different. I'm not so disappointed that we're not hitting it yet, but I'm disappointed with their approach to hitting. A couple of our kids are good baseball players and they're getting way out in front.''
Both Hurricane and Logan leave this weekend to play in the Mingo Bay Classic in the Myrtle Beach, S.C., area next week.
"Hopefully we'll get some warm weather down at the beach,'' Gertz said, "and get some swings and we'll get better. I think by the end of the year we'll be a pretty solid baseball team. Defensively, we are pretty solid.''
