WARSAW – The Warsaw baseball team put an end to its losing streak Friday evening.
Caleb Heckaman made sure of that with his performance at the plate.
Heckaman had a big game as the host Tigers rolled past Goshen 9-0 in Northern Lakes Conference action.
Heckaman collected four hits in the league win, including a home run and a double. The senior also drove in four runs and scored a pair in the dominating victory.
Warsaw, which snapped its five-game losing skid with the win, improves to 9-9 overall and 6-3 in NLC action.
Kevin Hawley went the distance on the hill to give the Tigers a much-needed conference win. The junior right-hander allowed just four hits while striking out six and walking none.
Warsaw, which had lost NLC road game at Wawasee Wednesday (4-3) and at Elkhart Memorial on Monday (4-2), handled Goshen for the second this season. The hosts scored once in the first inning and three more times in the second frame. Warsaw then tallied four runs in the fifth and one more in the sixth of the rout.
Brandon Shipp slugged a homer among his two hits for the Tigers and also had four RBI. Caleb Moneyheffer had two hits and two RBI and Dean Katris a double for the Tigers.
Deric Haynes had a pair of hits for Goshen, which drops to 2-15 overall and 1-7 in conference play. Jorge Pizana took the pitching loss for the Redskins.
