2013-14 Rewind: Top Moments in Wolverine Athletics

Moment 23: Locker throws five-hit shutout at PAC-foe Waynesburg

Fifth-year senior Erick Locker already had been in the midst of his strongest season as a Wolverine and one of the best seasons by a Grove City pitcher in recent years when Wolverine Baseball traveled to Waynesburg for a Presidents' Athletic Conference doubleheader on the afternoon of April 26.

That afternoon, however, Locker was at his very best, allowing just five hits to the Jackets and striking out a pair to earn his second career shutout and lead Grove City to a 3-0 victory in the second game of the doubleheader.

Behind a Matt Waugaman RBI-single and a Matt Corner two-run single in the top of the first, the Wolverines jumped out to a 3-0 lead, which would be all the offense Locker would need. After allowing a leadoff base hit, Locker would retire the following batter and then get a double play from his defense to get out of the first.

After retiring the Jackets in order in the second, the Wolverine defense turned another double play in the third to erase a leadoff walk and allow Locker to face just the minimum through three innings.

That streak would end in the bottom of the fourth, but Waynesburg failed to manage more than one hit in each of the final four innings as Locker kept a zero on the home half of the scoreboard.
