Whitewater sweeps Stevens Point

WHITEWATER, Wis. -- No. 4 Wisconsin-Whitewater completed a doubleheader sweep of No. 5 Wisconsin-Stevens Point, winning the first game Thursday on a passed ball, balk and infield out and then going 13 innings in the nightcap.

Whitewater (20-3, 8-1 WIAC) used a three-run seventh inning to break a 4-4 tie to take the opener 7-4 in which both teams had eight hits. The Warhawks scored on a passed ball, balk and a groundout by Michael Gonzalez in the decisive seventh inning.

The Pointers (17-6, 5-5 WIAC) trailed 4-1 after four innings but used a three-run inning of their own in the fifth to tie the game at 4-4. UWSP loaded the bases on singles by Clint Rose and Ben Gerber, followed by a UWW error.

After a fielder's choice, Kyle McHugh plated two runs with a single to center and Jimmy Coady, the next batter, drove in the tying run with a single down the right-field line. The Pointers then had a chance to take the lead but a double play ended the rally.

Stevens Point started the scoring in the third when Riley Spetz drove home Gerber with a single but UW-Whitewater replied by scoring three times in the third and once more in the fourth. Kyle Haen sparked the three-run third with a two-run triple for the Warhawks.

JP Feyereisen gave up seven runs in seven innings for the Pointers, while Connor Hurst went the distance for the Warhawks. Hurst did not walk a batter and struck out seven.

Stevens Point appeared to be on its way to a doubleheader split, leading 4-0 after seventh inning, but Whitewater rallied. The Warhawks completed the come-from-behind win in the bottom of the 13th inning when Adam Gregory singled home Steve Chamberlain, who led off the inning with a triple off of Tyler Flood.

The Warhawks tied the score on a throwing error on a potential double-play ball with one out in the bottom of the ninth. In the eighth, Kevin Friend hit a two-run home run and Trey Cannon added a RBI single off of Cam Seidl, who had kept UW-Whitewater scoreless through seven innings.

Coady opened the scoring with his first home run of the season, a solo shot to right in the top of the second. The Pointers added three more in the fifth on an RBI double by Kranz and a two-run double by McHugh.

Seidl escaped bases-loaded, two-out jams in the second and third innings, while UW-Stevens Point had the bases full with no outs in the third and did not score.
