Wheaton/Herman-Norcross managed just two hits in a 7-1 loss at West Central Area Thursday afternoon.
The game was the season opener for both teams.
Ben Anderson hurled a gem for the home team, striking out five, walking one and allowing only two hits in 5-2/3 innings on the mound. Jay Zimmerman struck out two in 1-2/3 innings of work.
Battling an always strong and sometimes gusty wind, the Warriors committed three errors in the contest, while WCA made only one.
Anderson also went 2-for-3 at the plate, driving in a run with a double. Buzz Miller (1-3, 2 RBI, R, 2SB) and Jake Larkin (1-3, 2 RBI) led the offensive attack for the Knights.
The Warriors scored their only run in the second inning when Braden Krump doubled and scored on a base hit by Tyler Wilts.
