McHenry defeats Woodstock

When McHenry starting pitchers need some relief, they typically turn to right-hander Marcus Reiser. Wednesday was no different, except that the call came much earlier than usual.

The Warriors’ pitching staff was taxed and tired heading into its sixth game in six days. With all of the typical starters already spent, the Warriors opted for Reiser, a senior who made just one spot start this spring.

Pitching outside his typical role, the reliever pitched like not only a starter but an ace in McHenry’s 10-3 victory over Woodstock at Emricson Park Wednesday.
