Warhawks drop all four to Eagles
The Warhawks were swept Sunday by UW-La Crosse in a WIAC doubleheader and dropped all four games to the Eagles over the weekend. It was the first time in more than a decade that Whitewater had lost back-to-back weekend doubleheaders in the WIAC.
La Crosse rallied to win game one Sunday, 6-5, and hung on for an 8-6 win in game two.
Brooks Braga homered twice and drove in four runs for La Crosse (22-8, 14-2) in the second game, while Cole Cefalu had five RBIs for the Eagles in game one.
Marty Herum had four hits for Whitewater (18-11, 8-6) in game two, and Jared Fon had two doubles for the Warhawks in game one.
Whitewater plays at UW-Platteville in a WIAC doubleheader Wednesday.
