On the hill for the home team pro pitching prospect Karsten Whitson, and that means plenty of scouts on hand.....in fact coach Compton having to rope off a section behind the backstop for those scouts.
Pick it up scoreless game in the bottom of the first man on for Whitson who can swing the bat too, he takes the Dylan Lee pitch out of the park for the two run home-run, Chipley up 2-zip.
-then it's Whitson giving the scouts what they were looking for, he's dealing early on, getting up to 91 on that pitch, he would get as high as 95 on the night....
-top of the fourth and Vernon playing some defense catcher Hunter Dobbs knocks down the pitch and throws out Chris Spencer trying to steal,
But Chipley was too much in this one taking a 7-2 win, Whitson coming out on a pitch count after 4 and 2-3rds, but striking out 9 along the way. Tigers 2 and oh.
