Hawks blow by Panthers in WCAC baseball twinbill

Levi Richey slides home to score for Panorama in the first of two games against WCAC for W-G Thursday.

PANORA — Class 2A No. 8 Woodward-Granger went about their business Thursday in what has become an almost routine fashion, dispatching host Panorama by scores of 15-1 and 14-1 in a WCAC doubleheader.

W-G (18-0, 11-0) went to work quickly as the home team in the opener by plating eight runs in their first at-bat and then adding four more runs in the second inning after Panorama (2-10, 2-9) plated a run in the top of the frame. Three Hawk tallies in the fourth set the final score.

Brady Aunspach was 4-for-4 with a double from the lead-off spot for the Hawks, with courtesy runner Ryan Munoz scoring three times while entering for the senior catcher.

Panorama senior first baseman Jeramy Randol pulls in a tough over-the-shoulder catch in foul ground. Randol had to backpedal and fight off the sun to make a difficult catch look routine.

Matt Buch had a triple, with Marcus McConahay, Matt Rhodes, Reese Jamison and Bryce Achenbach each providing a pair of singles while Nick Brummond and Spencer Hanson added base hits. Achenbach, Hanson and Rhodes had three RBIs apiece.

Jamison allowed a run on two hits in three innings on the hill for W-G. He finished with two strikeouts, with Matt Rhodes striking out four and hitting one batter in two innings of relief.

Levi Richey singled and later scored in the second inning to account for the Panther run.

The Hawks were the visitors in the nightcap and held a 5-1 lead after three innings before scoring nine times in the top of the fifth to help end the second game early.

Aunspach had two hits and Hanson three, with Jamison adding a double. Hanson drove in four runs and scored three times, with Munoz scoring twice. McConahay drew three walks and reached on an error, scoring all four times he reached base.

Matt Rhodes plays third base as Reese Jamison pitches for Woodward-Granger in the first of two games against Panorama Thursday.

Brandon Worley threw four innings, yielding one run on three hits and a walk while recording three strikeouts. Buch struck out the side in the bottom of the fifth to end the doubleheader.

No additional information from Panorama was available.

Panorama visits Des Moines Christian Monday and will then host Earlham Tuesday and the Woodward Academy Thursday.

W-G faces a busy slate next week, as the Hawks will play a twinbill at Ogden Monday, host DMC Tuesday, entertain West Central Valley for a doubleheader Thursday and then travel to Winterset June 23.
