By Daniel Schoettler

The Whippets softball team exploded for 13 runs in the second inning of a game against Clinton that was called after only three innings.

In the April 5 game, Whitewater took advantage of nine walks and eight hit-by-pitches.

Alyssa Schumacher had two of hits and drove in four runs in the victory. Sarah Johnson also had one hit and drove in three in the game, while Catherine Yang and Morgan Gransee had one hit apiece in the win.

“We got to win those games, and I expect to win those games,” head coach Ron Sdano said of playing a rebuilding Clinton team. “If we are going to improve from last year, those are the games we have to win.”

Johnson pitched all three innings in the game striking out four and walking one en route to a 16-1 win for the Whippets.

Parrish, DuVal power offense vs. Clinton

Bryce Parrish and Jimmy DuVal paced the Whippets baseball team’s attack on offense Monday against Clinton with Parrish tallying four hits and driving three runs in. DuVal had three hits and four runs batted in.

“Everything they hit was hit hard and on a line,” head coach Jim Pease said. “They were seeing the ball well and drove every pitch really well.”

Whitewater had big offensive outputs in two separate innings. The Whippets grabbed a 10-run lead early before adding on five in the third to grab a 15-6 lead.
