Verona 3, Sun Prairie 0
The JV Verona Wildcats beat Sun Prairie 3-0 on Tuesday night. They got an excellent pitching performance by Tekoa Whitehead, who gave up just four hits in a complete game effort, while adding two strikeouts. The Wildcats scored twice in the first inning when freshman outfielder, Knueppel, got a base hit and then reached second from a stolen base. David Rogowski then hit a double to score Knueppel, then reached third base on a pass ball. With one out and a runner on third base, Corey Miller hit a ground ball up the middle to score Rogowski from third base. They added a run in the 7th inning when Jason Frahm reached base on a walk. Whitehead, helping himself out as the pitcher, sacrifice bunted to get Frahm to second. Auman came in to pinch run for the catcher. Joe Toner reached on a walk. With runners on first and second base, Brody Roehrig did his job to advance the runners to second and third with two outs. Auman scored after a wild pitch to “Tito” Toman to make it 3-0. The Wildcats leaned on their defense which started in the first inning when there was a runner on first base and a ground ball was hit up the middle. Rogowski made a diving play up the middle, then threw the ball without looking over his shoulder to Tony Granich for the force out. Granich and Rogowski turned two double plays late in the game to preserve the win for the Wildcats. Their record is now 3-2, and the next game is at the Verona Little League complex on Thursday, May 2nd. The first pitch is at 5:00.
