Worley tosses gem as Hawks blank Lions

W-G's Joe Rhodes takes a pitch in the dirt against Woodward Academy last season. Rhodes drove in three runs for W-G Wednesday.

GRANGER — Woodward-Granger sophomore Brandon Worley allowed only three hits and issued only one walk in a complete-game victory over Des Moines Christian in a key WCAC contest Monday.

W-G’s 4-0 win lifted the Hawks to 9-2 overall and into a second-place tie with DMC (7-4) at 6-1 in the WCAC, with both one game behind Van Meter.

Worley (3-0) has allowed only 14 total hits and just two walks in 19 innings pitched this season. Monday’s victory lowered his ERA to a miniscule 1.11.

The hosts scored once in the bottom of the fourth, then helped secure the victory with three runs in the sixth.

Jack Grell had two singles and a RBI, with Reese Jamison adding a double. Joe Rhodes, Hunter Pifer and Worley all hit singles, with Cole Theisen drawing three walks. Nick Brummond drove in two runs and scored once, with Pifer adding a RBI while Jamison and Rhodes scored the other W-G runs.

Statistical information from DMC was not available.

W-G visits Earlham tonight before hosting Panorama for a varsity doubleheader Thursday.
