03/17/2016 - BASEBALL: Divis Has Impressive Start In Northeast Win Over Waverly

By Jeff Motz

Wyatt Divis started his senior season of baseball on a good note Thursday afternoon. 

The Lincoln Northeast right-hander pitched five innings, allowed one hit, while striking out six batters and allowed three walks, as the Rockets picked up a 9-2 win over Waverly at Sherman Field.

Divis earned the win and retired five of the first eight batters he faced via strikeout.  Offensively, Northeast helped out by connecting on eight hits in the game.

The Rockets (1-0) had a 2-0 lead in the first inning, after a lead off single from Brody Pappas, which was followed by a single from Jacob Stewart and Divis reaching after getting hit by a pitch from Waverly's Seth Carnes.  After Caden Highsmith reached on a fielder's choice and a force out of Pappas at home, Talon Little hit a two-run single to left field.

Carnes struggled to recover on the mound in the bottom of the second, as he gave up three runs and a trio of hits that gave Northeast a 5-0 advantage.  Divis then delivered a three-run homer to right field, putting the Rockets up 8-0 after four.

Waverly (0-1) found some life at the plate in the sixth inning.  The Vikings got a lead-off walk from Owen Gubbels, who then scored off an RBI double from Justin Lawrence.  Northeast Relief pitcher Brendan Steinmetz rebounded by striking out the next two batters before walking James Scurto, hitting Trevor Steinmeyer with a pitch and walking Chase Diekmann with the bases loaded, scoring Lawrence.

The Rockets got out of the inning when right-handed reliever Donovan Speer forced Waverly pinch-hitter Jay Adams to ground out to second base.

Northeast only left five runners stranded, while Waverly left seven on base.
