The Rochester Zebras took advantage of a porous Whitko defense and won the 2A Wabash Sectional Championship Monday, 13-3.
The Zebras scored six times in the 6th inning to finish off the title by 10-run rule and advance to the Lafayette Central Catholic Regional on Saturday.
The win avenged a regular season loss to Whitko. In that game, Whitko committed eight errors and still managed to get the win, 10-7. Not the case this time. Seven Whitko errors led to seven unearned Rochester runs.
Tarick McGlothin was 4-for-5, with two RBI and two runs scored. Freshman Gavin Young drove in a pair of runs and scored twice with two hits on the day.
Brock Beehler also drove in two with a 2-for-3 day at the plate. He recorded the complete game win on the mound.
Rochester has won seven straight and nine of the last ten.
