Columbus High’s baseball club broke out the bats last night as the Discoverers drubbed Waverly 12-2 in five innings at Pawnee Park Field.
Cody Zrust went 1-for-2 with a home run, two RBI and scored a run. Bentley Willison was 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI and a run. And Jack Faust tripled in his only official at-bat, driving in two runs and scoring twice.
On the mound, Faust came within one out of a five-inning complete game. He allowed two runs on four hits, walking two and fanning five. The win improved Columbus to 6-7.
The Discoverers travel to Lincoln North Star on Saturday to face the Navigators and Lincoln High.
