After a lengthy break between games due to weather, the South Winn baseball team (22-4, 10-4 UIC) went 3-for-3 last week.
Coming back from rest
Following six days of rest, the Warriors came away with the win Wednesday night at home, defeating Waukon 6-0.
The Warriors put up two in the first, added an insurance run in the third and three in the sixth.
"You could definitely tell we had not played for six days as it took us a while to get going. Any time you go a week without seeing live pitching it's always tough, but I still was pleased by our guys' approaches at the plate. We didn't get the clutch hits with runners in scoring position we have been getting, but we were swinging at strikes and disciplined at the plate, which is evident by our nine team walks. We were popping up way too much at the plate, and the focus the next couple of days will be getting back to spraying the ball all over the field and hitting it hard on a line and on the ground," said Coach Ben Obermann.
The Warrior offense had five hits to go with the nine walks. Jordan Rommes was 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run. Ryan Hageman pounded a double and a single, two RBIs, a run and two walks. Christian Kleve had the other hit, an RBI double.
Trevor Schweienfus was the winning pitcher. In seven innings he gave up three hits and struck out seven.
