Whiteherse, Statesmen tame Wolves 15-2


By Ken DeBolt, HWS Athletic Communications

KEUKA PARK, N.Y.—Hobart College graduate student Michael Whiteherse went 6-for-6 and stole five bases to lead the Statesmen baseball team to a 15-2 non-conference win at Keuka College this afternoon. It’s the second most hits in a game and the second most stolen bases in a game by a Division III player this season.

“Mike is our table setter,” Hobart Head Coach Brad Cook said. “He gets the offense going. Speed is a weapon that never slumps. I’m proud of the work he’s put in and the adjustments he’s made to his approach.”


  • All six of Whiteherse’s hits were singles.
  • He led off the game with an infield single, stole second and third, and scored the game’s first run on first-year Jeremy Sanchez’s ground out.
  • After Hobart batted around and scored four times in the first, Whiteherse led of the second with a bunt single down the third base line. Again, he stole second and third. He scored four batters later, on first-year Will Jones’ single through the left side.
  • In the third inning, Whiteherse delivered a two-out single to right, but was stranded on first.
  • Hobart batted around again in the fourth. Whiteherse singled to left and took second on the throw home to try to get Joe McCoy, but the junior beat the throw for an 11-1 Statesmen lead.
  • Whiteherse came up again in the six as Hobart plated six runs, batting around for the third time. This time he single to center and later stole second.
  • Whiteherse singled to left in his final at bat.


  • Jones finished the game 3-for-4 with a game-high four RBIs and two runs scored.
  • Sanchez was 1-for-5 with three RBIs.
  • Junior Ty Gallagher was 1-for-2 with two walks and three runs scored.
  • First-year Isaiah Pinto and McCoy both doubled. Hobart’s other 14 hits in the game were all singles.
  • Starting pitcher Cole Tarrant went three innings, striking out four. He allowed just one hit and only one run to earn the win.


  • Hobart improved to 5-14 on the season.
  • Keuka slipped to 4-14.


  • Hobart will return to Liberty League play, visiting Union for a doubleheader on Saturday, April 15. Game 1 is scheduled to start at 1 p.m.
