Zach Whitaker, a Hampden Sydney Freshman Pitcher from Roanoke picked up two complete game ODAC victories as the Tigers earned a spot in the ODAC Tournament. Whitaker shut down the Virginia Wesleyan bats on Wednesday in going the distance, and then came back on Saturday to pitch nine more innings to pick up a 4-1 win over Bridgewater. Against the Marlins, Whitaker allowed one run on five hits while striking out six. He again held his opponent to one run on Saturday, giving up a solo homerun in the second, before pitching seven straight shutout innings. Bridgewater recorded eight hits against him, but he struck out five while walking just two. Whitaker now stands at 7-3 on the season in 16 appearances and eight starts. He also has two saves, 50 strikeouts and just a 2.60 ERA.
