Brooks' arm bites in to Omaha South bats

Senior pitcher Josh Brooks zips one in to get one of his eight strikeouts, April 20, 2018, versus Omaha South (KHGI)

The Hastings Tigers earned a 5-1 victory over Omaha South, their seventh against a Class A foe, and improved to 12-3 on the year.

With the victory, Hastings stays atop the Class B wildcard standings with six games remaining in their regular season.

Josh Brooks was the star for the Tigers by pitching a complete game. The senior struck out eight Omaha South batters with a dominant 0.71 WHIP (walks plus hits per innings pitched) and the only run surrendered came in the top of the seventh when the Tigers already had a five-run cushion.

Most of the damage done with the bat came from Cameron Edwards. The Hastings senior had three RBI

Sam Wibbels, who had three quality at-bats, and Mike Boeve both had a couple of hits off Packer starter Lane Flammang.

Hastings is back at it on Monday when Lincoln Pius X visits Duncan Field.
