Brogdon was the losing pitcher. She pitched the full seven innings, allowing four runs (two earned) on five hits and one walk, while striking out eight.
“It was a pitcher’s duel,” Winamac coach Jennifer Belcher said. “Two pitchers battled hard. Even though we lost the game, it will be a game that we will learn from.”
Rochester 17, Winamac 12
Winamac’s (4-13) offense finally came alive, but it was the pitching that suffered for the loss.
J.T. Garnett led the Warriors with three singles and five RBIs. Levi Schultz came up with a home run, single and two RBIs. Jack DeGroot added three singles and two RBIs, and Lane Button contributed with three doubles.
Winamac outhit Rochester 15 to 11, but the Warriors pitchers lost control of their pitches.
“We had conference games on Saturday, and we pitched our four, five or six guys,” Winamac coach Don Howe said. “We walked 12 guys. We finally hit the ball good, and that’s what we been bad at for the last seven or eight games.”
Brent Evans was the losing pitcher. Evans pitched the first four innings, allowing seven earned runs and seven walks.
