Webber rolls past Waltonville

BLUFORD – Ty Henderson has been a strikeout machine during his Webber baseball career.

Wednesday was no different in Webber’s 12-1 win Wednesday against Waltonville.

The Webber senior fanned six batters in three innings. The strikeouts gave him 500 for his career.

“He’s having an all-state year right now, and hopefully he saved his best for last,” Webber coach Sam Root said.

The appearance in the game was Henderson’s first action in nearly two weeks after experiencing back spasms.

“It was nice to see him come out here and feel good and be healthy first of all.”

Webber’s offense exploded in the opening inning against Waltonville starter Jordan Hale. The Trojans pounded out eight hits and scored eight times in the inning.

“Unfortunately, this year we’ve had a lot of games where we have that one huge inning where they have a big inning and put us in a hole,” Waltonville coach Brian Gamber said.

Webber’s Gage Raudenbush finished the rally with a two-run double down the right-field line. Raudenbush finished the game with two hits a walk and three RBI to lead the Webber offense.

Jordan Wheeler added two hits and two RBI for Webber. Austin Gowler had a hit and two RBI.

Koaltin Dye and Levi Aydt both added two hits each.

“(We) came out on fire,” Root said. “(We) came out and treated it as a big game because we had an opportunity to play baseball. We always talk about that. It’s a big game because we have the opportunity to come out and play.”

Webber added to its advantage in the second inning. Alex Lynn scored on an error, and Wheeler put the Trojans up 10-0 with a double.

Waltonville’s lone run of the game came against Aydt, who relieved Henderson to start the fourth inning. The Spartans sandwiched a walk from Luke Thompson around a pair of singles from Jacob Vanwey and Ryan Majewski. Majewski’s single allowed Vanwey to score.

“I felt like we got in better hitting counts,” Gamber said. “If you can get ahead in the count then you can look for certain pitches in a certain area and put a good swing on it.”

Webber is 21-8 this season and travels to Sandoval on Friday.

Waltonville dropped to 2-16 this season. The Spartans host Pinckneyville today.
