Webster ‘no hits’ Unity for conference win

Hunter Rosenbaum takes a swing.

BALSAM LAKE—Jack Washburn and Hunter Rosenbaum threw a five inning no hitter last Tuesday as the Webster Tigers blanked the Unity Eagles 10-0.

Washburn hurled for four innings, walked three and struck out nine. Rosenbaum finished in relief, recording two strikeouts and a walk.

On the offensive side of the diamond, the Tigers got the only run they needed in the first inning. Carsen Stenberg walked, was moved along to second on a ground out, and scored on a single by Rosenbaum.

Brad Sigfrids made it a 2-0 game on a solo home run to center field in the third inning.

In the fourth inning, Webster put four runs across. Five singles with a double by Rosenbaum put the runs on the scoreboard.

Four additional runs came in during the fifth inning. A single and six walks were the scoring plays.

Said Coach Jarrod Washburn of the Tigers, “it was cold, but it felt better than being in a gym. It was good that their (Unity’s) field was dry enough to play on, and it was good to be outside.”

In regards to the pitching, “Jack didn’t do as well as he did last week, but he did do well. He fell behind in a few pitch counts and threw more than I would have liked to have seen him throw.”

The Tigers will have played Siren Tuesday, weather and field conditions permitting. Next Monday, Mondovi will visit Webster and Tuesday, Turtle Lake/Clayton will travel to Webster for a game.
