Lynx want to forget regular season finale

WEBSTER CITY – It’s a good thing the Webster City baseball team needed to quickly move on and focus on the postseason following Tuesday’s regular season finale against Boone at Lynx Field.

The Toreadors made sure it was an outing the purple and gold would like to forget.

Taking advantage of seven walks and a mountain of hits, Boone (20-10) scored early and often in a 13-1, 5-inning thumping of the Lynx. The Toreadors led 6-0 after one inning, 9-0 after two and 13-0 after three.

“This is one of those games you just immediately turn the page on,” WCHS head coach Mark Fisher said.

WCHS starter Max Hackbarth and reliever Collin Oswald combined to issue seven walks in just 11?3 innings. Cole Reigelsberger went the rest of the way and allowed eight of Boone’s 13 hits.

Jake Mallas went 3-for-3 with a double, home run and four RBI for the visitors. Nolan Newcomb was 2-for-2 with a double and four RBI. Storm Wagner and Danny Anderson plated two runs each.

Romel Martinez, Cal Zahn, Jordan Tanner and Ty Schnathorst accounted for the Lynx four hits. Schnathorst drove in the team’s only run in the bottom of the fifth inning.

All of the focus now shifts to Perry and the Class 3A district semifinal that awaits WCHS (8-15) on Friday in Boone at 5 p.m.
