6-3 on the season with a complete-game in Whitewater’s


19-2 win in Game 1. Donovan remained unbeaten on the season at 8-0 as he threw six solid innings in the Warhawks’ 6-4 win in Game 2.


Whitewater (25-7, 15-5) belted four home runs in Game 1, including Janesville Parker graduate Matt Beyer’s three-run blast in the ninth. Janesville Craig graduate Zach Whalen drove in one of the two Titan runs in Game 1.


The Warhawks opened up a 3-0 lead in Game 2. Brent Young homered for Whitewater, while Rob Coe and Dylan Friend drove in two runs each.
