Baseball Wins Nailbiter

The Whitman-Hanson Panthers rode the right arm and bat of Ethan Phelps to their second win in a row, a 2-1 victory over visiting Plymouth South. 

Going the distance on the mound, Phelps gave up 1 unearned run on 4 hits, struck out 6 and walked only 2 batters.

Catcher Derek Frank and first baseman Aidan Cafferty combined for a big pick-off in the last inning to help preserve the 1-run win.Right Fielder Devin Coulstring and second baseman Mike Cook also made crucial plays to save the Panthers.

On offense Phelps went 2 of 2, scoring the first Panther run to tie the game in the third inning on a double by Chris Zalewski.  In the fourth, after Danny Kent led off with single and went to third on a Coulstring single, Phelps belted a long sacrifice fly to put Whitman-Hanson ahead with the game-winning run.

Whitman-Hanson is now 2-0 in the Patriot League 2-0  overall.
