Whitehall baseball team rallies past Nazareth - The Morning Call
PHOTO GALLERY: Dobeck leads Zephs past the Blue Eagles Monday afternoon at Nazareth Borough Park. (ADDISON GEORGE / SPECIAL TO THE MORNING CALL) Stephen MillerContact ReporterOf The Morning Call Whitehall hopes Monday s victory over Nazareth starts the winning streak it needs. With more than half its regular-season schedule complete, Whitehall was still seeking a win to change the direction of its season.The Zephyrs hope Monday represented a breakthrough. Matt Dobeck's sixth-inning RBI single gave Whitehall its second lead against Nazareth. He protected this one to the finish by retiring the final four Blue Eagles he faced to give the Zephyrs a 5-4 Eastern Pennsylvania Conference Skyline baseball win at Nazareth Boro Park.Dobeck earned the victory with 2 2/3 shutout innings of relief. He struck out four, walked none and allowed just two hits to earn some personal and team-wide redemption. Nazareth (7-6 overall, 6-3 EPC) beat Whitehall 7-5 last week when Cade Stoneback cracked a game-winning three-run home run off Dobeck. Stoneback flied out against Dobeck in their lone confrontation Monday as part of Dobeck's 1-2-3 seventh inning.

I was able to paint my fastball on the outside corner. Dobeck's bat helped Whitehall (4-8, 3-6) surge ahead to stay in the sixth.The Zephyrs trailed 4-3 when he stepped to the plate with two on and one out https://www.shopfornyrangers.com/61-rick-nash-jersey. He singled to center to drive in the tying run. Robert Lamm scored the go-ahead run when the throw from center field sailed to the backstop. Lamm finished with two hits, one RBI and a run scored after entering the game in the fourth inning. Dobeck added three hits, one run scored and an RBI.Whitehall finished with 12 hits, a welcome sight for coach Shaun O'Boyle. Many EPC coaches pegged the Zephyrs as an EPC Skyline contender heading into this season thanks to their core of returning players. Whitehall hasn't hit well enough to stick with the top teams in the division. I just got done telling these guys, we're far from our potential right now, O'Boyle said. We've got to use this win as something to get us rolling. If we [hit like] that, we're going to win a lot of games, he added. At this point, it's just being consistent hitting, being more selective at the plate. Most of us did a better job being selective https://www.shopfornyrangers.com/38-joe-kocur-jersey. Nazareth had demonstrated the defensive improvement coach Bryan Wolf thought it needed from a year ago during its 6-1 start to EPC play. The Blue Eagles have slipped in their last two games. They followed a five-error game Saturday against Northampton by making four errors Monday.Nick Skirtich had two hits and two RBIs to lead Nazareth's offense Monday. The Blue Eagles couldn't overcome their defensive miscues. This is the EPC, Wolf said. You can't be giving them four, five extra outs a game and expect to win a baseball game https://www.shopfornyrangers.com/31-james-sheppard-jersey. It's tough because we didn't execute. With the execution, I think it's a totally different baseball game. samiller@mcall.comTwitter @mcall_smiller610-820-6750AROUND THE AREA 4-24Bulldogs biteNorthern Lehigh took a 1-9 Colonial League record into its Monday matchup with Palmerton.
