Baseball: Dreads break out the brooms – again

Dexter may want to expand the broom closet.

For the second time in four days the Dreadnaughts swept a doubleheader. After sweeping Pinckney on Friday, the Dreads took a pair – and rather easily – from visiting Ypsilanti on Monday.

Dexter scored a pair in the first inning of the opener to take a 2-0 lead and never looked back. After After Ypsilanti scored a run in the top of the third, Dexter answered with three in the bottom of the inning. And that’s what good teams do – they answer when challenged.

The Dreads put the game away with seven in the fourth in a 12-1 mercy-rule shortened victory.

Cam Milne and Stewie Webber each had two hits to lead the team’s 11-hit performance. Milne also had four RBI. Grant Katcher had three RBI and Michael Bradshaw drove in two for the Dreads.

Nick Winston picked up the win, going five innings and allowing just three hits with three strikeouts.

The Dreads took the second game 17-3, scoring five in the first, four in the second, five in the third and three in the fourth. It all added up to an easy win and an impressive 9-2 record out of the gate for the Dreadnaughts.

Milne, Chase Rojeck and Seth Jaimez all had two hits for Dexter. Rojeck and Kyle Harris each had three RBI. Milne drove in a pair of runs.

Katcher, Hunter Edwards and Joey Hiser handled the pitching duties. Katcher recorded three strikeouts in his inning of work.

Dexter hosts Columbia Central (DH) on Wednesday. The Dreads will play two at Howell on Saturday.
