UWW Spring Training vs. St. Thomas - game 2
In the second game of the day, the Warhawks stumbled a bit. A five-run fourth inning for St. Thomas proved to be the difference maker in a 6-4 UW-Whitewater loss in Leesburg, Florida. The loss is the second of the season for UW-W who is now 5-2. St. Thomas made the first blow scoring on a sacrifice fly to right field in the top of the first. The 'Hawks answered with three in the bottom of the third to take a 3-1 lead. A Jeff Donovan triple with the bases loaded scored 3. However, UW-W relinquished their lead in the top of the fourth serving up five runs to go down 6-3. UW-W fought back tallying one run in the bottom of the eighth when, but UW-W was unable to complete the comeback and fell to St. Thomas 6-4. Notwithstanding this setback, the parents offered up a sumptuous Wisconsin style pot-luck dinner. I have never seen as many family and friends at a college Spring Training week and so it is a testament to their commitment and to the UW-W program's quality overall. Great pulled pork, and mac and cheese. There was much more, but I was glad to have a taste of Wisconsin while in Florida. Again, no recipes but there are a couple on the way!
