It was a night of explosive offense for the South Winn baseball team (5-0, 2-0 UIC) as the Warriors pounded 23 runs against Starmont (0-2, 0-2 UIC) Monday.
In the first game, the Warriors scored at least one run in the first five innings to win 11-0.
In total, the Warriors had eight hits. Tyler Numedahl was 3-for-4 with an RBI. Christian Kleve was 2-for-3 while Jordan Rommes was 2-for-2 with four RBI and two stolen bases. Jared Schroeder and Trevor Schweinefus both walked three times, with Schroeder scoring twice.
On the mound, T. Schweinefus threw the complete game, giving up just one hit and striking out nine.
“Starmont is an extremely young team, and we were able to take advantage of their miscues. They helped us out a lot offensively by committing errors and by giving us free bases via the walk. With that being said, I thought we did a nice job of having quality at-bats and disciplined approaches at the plate, which in turn put the pressure on the defense,” said Coach Ben Obermann. “In high school baseball, if you consistently have good at-bats and put the ball in play, good things will happen, and tonight, that was the case. With Trevor on the mound, we never need too many runs, so getting him a quick lead right out of the gates was huge. He took the ball and pounded the strike zone all night, which we have become accustomed to with him over the course of his career.”
