West Aurora plays complete game, blanks Batavia

SHARE West Aurora plays complete game, blanks Batavia

While West Aurora is off to a promising start this season at 8-4 including a win over St. Charles North and a 12-inning loss to St. Charles East, Randy Hayslett’s squad is a few timely hits away from an even bigger breakout year.

The Blackhawks showed their potential Thursday when they can add the clutch hits to their strong pitching and defense.

West Aurora came through with 2-out RBI hits in the first, second and fourth innings, which was more than enough for Hannah Beatus in the circle in a 7-0 Upstate Eight crossover win over visiting Batavia.
