Westview split a varsity baseball twin-bill with host Mishawaka this past Saturday.
A six-run sixth inning helped the Warriors sew up an 11-1 triumph over the Cavemen. A two-out single by Jake Berkey triggered the rally. After a single and a walk to Jamar Weaver loaded the bases, Kohle Christner drew another pass to force in Berkey.
A balk during Tarrin Beachy’s at bat allowed Zickafoose to score. John Yoder and Chase Anderson then cracked two-run hits to complete the outburst.
Zickafoose pitched a scoreless bottom of the sixth to end the game due to the 10-run rule. Weaver started on the hill for the Warriors and got the win. Weaver allowed four hits, walked one and whiffed seven.
Berkey’s three hits paced Westview. Christner and Anderson each lined two hits. Zickafoose reached base four times and scored twice.
Mishawaka forged a 6-3 victory over Westview in the second game. A three-run rally in the bottom of the fourth, capped off by a two-run double off the bat of Jobin Murphy, provided the Cavemen with their winning margin.
Zickafoose, Weaver and Jamin Lambright all had RBI singles for the Warriors. Both Weaver and Beachy finished with three hits.
Jacob Fry earned the pitching win for Mishawaka, scattering nine hits in five innings. Jacob Schmatz worked the final two frames for the Cavemen to net a save. Schmatz allowed three hits and fanned five.
Derrike Johns gave up just four hits and one earned run in taking the hard-luck loss for Westview. Johns whiffed six in four frames.
