— Tom Kerndt got the NCAA Division III regional tournament off to a good start Wednesday for UW-Whitewater's baseball team.

The senior pitcher threw a complete-game two-hitter to lead the Warhawks to a 2-0 win over Case Western Reserve.

Whitewater (35-7) plays WIAC rival UW-Stevens Point in a winner's bracket game at 6 p.m. today.

Steve Bartlein broke up a scoreless tie with an RBI double in the bottom of the seventh and the Warhawks added an insurance in the eighth for the final margin.

Kerndt improved to 8-1 on the season by allowing only two hits and striking out five.

Jarrett Gish (7-1) was the tough-luck loser. Gish allowed only six hits and struck out seven but suffered his first loss of the season in falling to 7-1.
