Manogue too talented for Whittell

Steve Yingling

Whittell High saw why Manogue is the Nevada 3A Division II favorites on Tuesday afternoon.

The Miners erupted for 11 runs in the first inning, and three hurlers combined to two-hit the Warriors in a 20-0 five-inning trouncing in Reno.

“After what I saw today, they are probably the class of the league,” said Whittell second-year coach Brian Geimer. “Manogue is just stacked. They hit from top to bottom. They dressed out 16 guys today and every one of them can hit the ball.”

Paul Rielly and two relievers combined on the shutout. Whittell sophomore Bryce Schussel had both Warrior hits.

Freshman lefty Thomas Hunter started for the Warriors, but he was replaced by freshman Brandon Lee after walking four of the first six batters. Lee lasted three innings and Vic Singh, a transfer from India, pitched the final inning, surrendering a solo homer.

“We knew going in that we weren’t going to pitch very well with Manogue, so we saved our pitching for later in the week,” Geimer said.

Whittell, 1-2, meets Virginia City in its home opener at 3:30 p.m. Thursday at Lampe Park in Gardnerville. The Warriors’ doubleheader with Rite of Passage on Saturday has been postponed.
