WHITEHALL — In less-than-ideal baseball conditions, Will Chye had a day to remember in Mason County Central’s West Michigan Conference sweep of host Whitehall Monday.
The junior hit the go-ahead home run in the seventh inning and pitched a three-hitter in Game 1, and he doubled twice in Game 2 as the Spartans completed the sweep in 45-degree temperatures.
Mason County Central won 3-1 and 5-2, respectively, as Chye totaled four hits, four runs and two RBIs on the day. On the mound, the right-hander struck out eight and walked two in his complete-game effort.
Simon Shimel was 3-for-3 with a double, run scored and RBI in the second game for the Spartans, plus he had a single and RBI in the first game.
Jacob Johnson earned the mound win in Game 2 for Mason County Central (6-4 overall, 2-4 WMC). He allowed six hits and one unearned run with seven strikeouts and two walks in six innings. Brady Anes singled, drove in two runs and scored a run for the Spartans in the second game.
For Whitehall (2-5 overall, 2-2 WMC), Landon Howe and Maddox Varela had two hits apiece in Game 1, while Jaden Brinkert and Isaac VanAmberg finished with two hits each in Game 2.
VanAmberg struck out eight, walked four and allowed one run on two hits in six innings in his Game 1 start. Kyle Stratton absorbed the loss in relief in the first game, and he took the defeat as the starter in the second game.
