JOHNSON CITY It wasnt the shot heard around the world, yet the one Samuel Icenhour delivered did serious damage to University High. The junior center-fielder smacked a bases-loaded double in the second inning which helped Johnson County prevail 12-3 on Thursday afternoon inside ETSUs Thomas Stadium.
It was one of four RBIs on the day for Icenhour. He drove in another run with a bases-loaded walk in the fourth inning.
He comes to play every day, said head coach Pete Pavusek about Icenhour. Thats one of those clutch hits that weve been needing. We had several guys hit it good and we didnt make mistakes in the field. Nick Whitener threw the ball well. It was a good win for our baseball team.
Whitner allowed only six hits and three runs in seven innings of work. And his team gave him plenty of run support.
I played fall ball here so I felt at home, said Whitener. I felt good on the mound. My change-up was working well and I used my two-seam fastball which was moving well. It felt good to come over here and get a win.
His teammates banged out 11 hits to give him all the support he needed.
