Pioneer, Winamac split baseball doubleheader

No. 9 Kings sweepat Eastbrook

Pioneer and Winamac split a doubleheader Saturday in Midwest Conference baseball action in Royal Center.

The Panthers won game one 6-1 before the Warriors salvaged the split with a 6-0 victory.

Deven Smith got the complete-game win for the Panthers (1-3, 1-1 MWC) in the opener. The junior left-hander allowed one run on five hits and two walks, striking out eight.

Carter Ulrich had two hits for the Panthers. Smith and Austin Harmon each had a base hit and two RBIs.

Levi Schultz went 2-for-4 with a stolen base for the Warriors. Lane Button went 1-for-3 with an RBI.

Dylan Hintz took the loss, allowing six runs in 4 1/3 innings. He struck out six. Jeremy Bentle pitched 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief.

In game two, senior right-hander J.T. Garnett fired a one-hit shutout to lead the Warriors (1-2, 1-1). He struck out nine, walked two and hit three batters.

Schultz went 2-for-3 with an RBI. Bentle went 2-for-4 with a double, RBI and two runs scored. Button and Maverick Schultz each added an RBI.

“We played well. We only had three errors on the day,” Winamac coach Don Howe said. “The second game was all J.T. We played pretty well both games.”

Tucker Waddups took the loss. He allowed six runs (two earned) on seven hits and three walks, striking out seven in a complete-game effort. He also had the Panthers’ lone hit at the plate.

“We came in not swinging the bats real well,” Pioneer coach Dick Farrer said. “It was nice in the first game that we put it in play pretty well. We saw a lot of offspeed stuff by two different pitchers. I told them that would change in the second game. We couldn’t quite adjust yet. We still have work to do hitting-wise.

“Our pitcher gave us a chance. Waddups was hurt and wanted to keep pitching .He’s had a hip problem and a shoulder problem. We’re taking it easy with him but he wanted to compete. He hasn’t had much of a chance to throw but he did a good job. They swung the bats. They’re older and more physical than we are at this time. They swung the bats a little better. Overall it was nice to pick up a victory.”
