On Westbrook's Super Soph

This season, the left-handed pitcher [Scott Heath] has a 6-0 record and
hasn't given up an earned run in 35 innings. He has 50 strikeouts, and opponents
are batting a paltry .086 against him. At the plate, Heath is batting .476 with
a team-high 20 RBI. Last year as a freshman, he batted .479 with 17 RBI. He had
a 1-0 record with one save. "At this stage, he´s more advanced than any pitcher
I've had," said Westbrook Coach Mike Rutherford, in his 23rd year of coaching.
The second-seeded Blue Blazes baseball team (14-2) open the playoffs Thursday afternoon at home.
