After three different pitchers took their turn on the mound at Friday’s game, Woodward-Granger baseball was defeated by Winterset 7-0.
Brandon Worley pitched the first portion of the game starting with one strikeout and one earned run in the top of first, with another strikeout and two earned runs in the top of the second. The third inning saw no runs on either side of the competition, but Winterset came back in the fourth inning with yet another run.
Although the game was scoreless for the Hawks, the team was not without its at-bat successes. Reese Jamison was able to hit a single in the first inning. Bryce Achenbach hit a single as well, but was tagged out on an attempted stolen base.
Cole Theisen was able to hit a single also, this time in the bottom of the second. Winterset’s left-handed pitcher proved to be a challenge for the Hawks as Theisen was the next player in the game to get out on an attempted stolen base.
Reese Jamison was able to hit his own single following his teammate in the fourth inning.
Despite the talented pitcher on Winterset’s end, Head Coach Eric Evans says he believes this was the best hitting his team has done all week.
“I thought Reese [Jamison] hit the ball well,” Coach Evans said. “I also thought Joe Rhodes hit the ball well during this particular game.”
The top of the fifth saw a pitcher change as Caden Easter took the mound 1/3 of the way through. Easter came out of the inning with one base on balls and no strikeouts.
Brummond replaced Easter in the very last inning of the game and came out with no earned runs and no strikeouts. Theisen was able to hit one more single in the seventh inning and ended up making it to third before his teammates were out.
The Hawks are now 13-4 overall and will be at home on Monday, June 25 to take on Madrid.
