Morrison mauls Mulhall-Orlando, Davenport



Morrison 12, Davenport 5

It took a little longer for the Morrison bats to come alive in the second game of the doubleheader against Davenport, but when they did Morrison’s offense proved to be unstoppable, tallying 11 of its 12 over the final three innings.

Collins went 3-for-3 while starting pitcher Josh Hite helped his own cause by scoring three runs as the Wildcats (13-13) tallied six runs in the sixth inning to put Davenport away.

“(Hite) battled pretty hard, but we struggled early offensively,” Hatter said. “We finally got it going and he got into a rhythm. He started to get command of his breaking ball and that really helped. Those first few innings he was just trying to overpower everybody and they were hitting him fairly hard.

Along with Collins — who finished the day going 7-for-8 — Quinata also went 2-for-4 in the second game to help ignite the Wildcats’ offense.

“We were able to get guys on but we couldn’t get them in,” Hatter said. “We just weren’t getting hits at the right time. But as it became crunch time, guys really stepped up for us.”

Morrison will open the district tournament against Woodland at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in Morrison.
