First Round D 2 South Baseball Whitman-Hanson 2 Plymouht South 1

Senior Mike Cook hit a walk-off double to knock in senior Ethan Phelps, who had singled, to give the Whitman-Hanson Panthers baseball team a 2-1 win over visiting Plymouth South.

In the bottom half of the seventh inning, senior Derek Frank had followed Phelps's single with a perfect sacrifice bunt to put the game winning run in scoring position, and Cook did the rest.

Senior Rian Schwede went the distance for W-H, as he gave up 1 earned run, scattered 5 hits, struck out 7, and walked no one for his seventh win of the season.

Although W-H had 12 hits on the day, every time they were about to break the game open a Panther would hit a rocket right at a P-S player, who always made the play.

Ethan Phelps scored both W-H runs, and Cook and Schwede had 2 hits apiece.

Danny Kent was immense at shortstop where he made a number of run-saving plays, including an 1-6-3 double play that would then leave a P-S runner at third as Schwede would then end the inning with a strike out.

W-H is now 15-6 overall
