Lynx get off on right foot, down Titans

WEBSTER CITY – Three runs in its first at bat was a good start, and the Webster City baseball team continued it by scoring in each of its first four at bats last night at Lynx Field.

The early offense, combined with a solid pitching effort by Cole Reigelsberger in relief, propelled the Lynx to a 7-3 victory over South Central Calhoun.

WCHS (1-0) finished with five hits and made just one error. Reigelsberger took the hill in relief of Cam Gordon in the third and pitched 4 1/3 innings of one-hit ball. He struck out two.

“It was definitely nice to get one on the left-hand side of the column to start the season,” WCHS head coach Troy Smock said.

Cal Zahn laced an RBI triple in the second inning and finished with two hits. Trey Tesdahl, Ben Mossman and Doug Stoakes all singled. Stoakes collected two RBIs on a sacrifice fly in the first inning and a run-scoring base hit in the fourth.

Webster City will be on the road against Carroll on Thursday.
