Warriors awaken, top White Pine 6-1

Southpaw Cody Gibson returned to form and Whittell’s bats broke loose for a 6-1 victory over White Pine on Friday afternoon.

The win earned the Warriors a split in the Battle Mountain Crossover Tourney. Gibby was in control on the knoll, allowing a single earned run, striking out nine and walking none. The Warriors played errorless ball behind him.

Hitting stars included Matt Elliott, who smacked a triple, Robbie Poet who garnered two hits, and Quinn Kixmiller who also hit safely. Alex Barnes “wore” one for the team, getting hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to force in a run.

The win over the Bobcats puts Whittell at 5-8, matching their win total for all of last season.

UP NEXT: Whittell will be in Covina, Calif., for a Northview High School tournament Monday through Thursday.
