Warriors suffer first defeat, then bounce back to no-hit Lowry

Lowry scored twice in its final at-bat to beat Whittell 8-7 Thursday, handing the Warriors their first baseball defeat of the season.

Whittell (13-1), however, bounced back in the second game of the nonleague doubleheader in Winnemuca behind the no-hit pitching of Alex Vogt and Hunter Morgan. The five-inning no-no was the Warriors’ fourth in their past five games.

The ninth-ranked Warriors lost the opener despite the extra-base slugging of junior Alex Potnick. The shortstop hit a home run and two doubles for three RBI. Vogt added two hits, a run scored and two RBI and Nick Warner was 2 for 3 with a run scored.

Senior Jordan Morgan pitched the first four frames, allowing three hits and three earned runs. Junior Julian Washalefsky worked two innings in relief, yielding two runs.

“It wa a heartbreaker,” said Whittell coach Starbuck Teevan. “We made several mistakes throughout the game that led to unearned runs.”

Potnick and Vogt continued their hitting barrage against the Buckaroos in game two. Potnick swatted three hits, scored four runs and knocked in three. Vogt went 4 for 4, including two doubles, and two runs scored. Laub and Jordan Morgan each contributed a double and combined for three runs scored.

Teevan expects to send Jordan Morgan and Vogt back to the mound against defending Northern 2A League champ Lovelock on Saturday in Lovelock. The doubleheader begins at noon.
